Strange : Normalize at -3db

Hi everyone,

Maybe I’m missing something, but I’m trying to normalize a few clips to 0 db. It does it well, the clip peaks at 0db, the stats show 0db, but the playback is locked at -3db, as if there was a brickwall limiter that acted like a ghost. Why a ghost ? Because he is nowhere. I can’t find it, so I think it’s just a bug ? Have you guys ever got an issue like this ?

I tried to reopen the project, or with Cubase, and it’s the same thing.



Where are you measuring level, and how are things routed?.. mono into stereo path? pan law?..

You could have the pan law at -3db (the default value) may be. Set the pan law to 0dB in project settings.
