- Track audio from an external synth is normal when doing playback
- The same frozen track has also normal volume (the same as 1)
- when I audio-mixdown this track and reimport it in the media pool as audio, the volume is less than -42dB
Fact and possible cause: the gain (or trim as my MOTU interface calls it, is set to 0dB).
I haven’t been producing for a while, but i remember that this is something I met before and used to solve by after editing the audio and increasing the gain in the audio file.
Nevertheless I’d like to know what happens and try to avoid this additional step.
I have somehow the feeling that the input gain on the interface is kind of ignored when making audio mixdown?
Or is it something in my setup that causes this confusing difference?
