I just discovered today that the meters in the Meter Section can be affected by Playback Processing plugins - giving wrong readings. I was under the impression that Playback Processing plugins only affected what we HEAR - but that is wrong!
I further found that changing “monitoring points” in the master section only affects the Master Section level meters. These points seem to have no effect on the Loudness meter, etc., in the Meter Section which always seems to read at the end of the Master Section regardless of these selections.
So, is there a setting somewhere that changes this? I don’t want the Loudness meter to be affected by room correction EQ, etc., that I am using in Playback Processing. Yes, I can turn this section on and off manually but it adds to confusion.
