What does Post-Panner metering do exactly? I’m getting inconsistent levels when I use it. I am using the new 64-bit processing engine, and it doesn’t happen with the 32-bit version. I’m testing with a single stereo wave file (a snare hit). I have a fresh new project, no plugins or processing. The audio track is going into master buss. Pan is set to center on both, fader is at zero. I play the file, let it ring, and after stopping playback I wait for the meters to fall all the way, then reset all readings. The highest I get is -9.2 dB (that’s the input level) and the rest are randomly below it, down to -17.3 dB. With Post-Fader or input metering it doesn’t happen. It also doesn’t happen in any scenario if I put the file on a mono track.
Is the metering system bugged or am I missing something?
