Using the Draw Tool on Peaks

AA Peaks Fixed.jpg
Hello,

I have been trying to edit a song with the Draw Tool. Specifically, the guitar player likes to hit her guitar to do a beat rhythm, but it was way too loud in the mix, so I am trying to lower the volume of each hit with the draw tool. When I listen to the song inside Cubase it seems to have worked, it show them all evened out and when I play back the strikes are very much lower, however when I export the project (MP3 or .WAV) the strikes are back just as strong as they originally were. The screen shot shows the peaks evened out by the Draw Tool. Am I overlooking something? I searched the manual, and it appears I am doing everything right. Why is the sound showing back up when I export my file?

Thanks,

I’m guessing you are trying to fix your concern using volume automation…(?)

If so, don’t forget to activate the automation with the “R” (Read) button when exporting/listening. You pic does not show it activated.
