I am trying to create a vocal stem to mix with. It consists of six vocal tracks output only to a group track (called “Vox” on the right in the attached picture). The group track is automated and has 3 FX sends. The group track and fx sends then all output to the stereo buss.
When playing the above soloed, it peaks at -22.8 RMS. When I render the above, it is about 6dB louder, peaking at -16.3 RMS.
When playing back to check levels and when rendering, all fx on the stereo buss are bypassed. Not sure if it will help, but here is a pic of the mix.
Any ideas what is going on? It is driving me nuts!
