Hello Cubase forum.
I have a problem with Cubase 6 on mac 64bit. OSX 10.6.8. and I am wondering can anyone help me understand what the problem is.
I am trying to record some audio(guitars) into a project. The levels are okay -6db for the external mixer I am using is about correct. It records okay in that it never clips there are no red lights or clipping messages shown but for some reason when I record after the recording, the image file in cubase 6 looks very strange.
It is almost like someone has used the volume handles of the audio image and raised them really high, though the sound and volume is okay no clipping no distortion. It is just the image looks wrong black as the audio wave fills the whole image. If I lower the volume of the image file using the volume handle the image looks okay but the sound is very low. What and why is this happening?
If I start a new project and record using the same settings it records normal and this issue is not present or does not seem to be present.
Could someone help me understand why this would happen and what would I need to seek to fix it.
I think the only solution with my knowledge would be to copy and paste all the midi tracks into a new project but I also have many vst instruments so this would be very long to do. I am at the recording phase so before I venture off on this project I need to get these basics sorted.
