Discovered accidentally while testing other things, I have found that a direct A/B test of a section of audio going through a lot of mastering inserts sounds better with a Realtime bounce than Offline.
I don’t know if this is a general thing or perhaps a problem with some of the mastering inserts I’m using (Nebula, various Slate Digital plugins, Ozone 6). I would describe the sound difference as a slightly noticeable loss of detail. Anyone else noticed this?
