I’ve been struggling with this for a while and I figured someone may be smart enough on here to at least point me in the right direction. I am mastering to -11DBFS. I have a BW Limiter set to Kill the Transients default in C8, followed by another limiter (input 6, output -0.3).
I can see true peak readings of +3.8db. At this point, I hear no noticeable distortion but these overshoots are bothering me. I’ve tried everything I know of to get rid of those and they still persist. The only thing that seems to work is lowering the overall output level by 3.8 so that true peak is 0db but then the master sounds 3db too soft. If I touch the limiter again at this point, sure enough, true peak starts to float back up. So basically, I want to get to -11dbfs with true peak at 0.
