I’m using the current version of Cubasis 3, on a 2021 iPad Pro 12.9”. I have a song that is up to 100% DSP usage (CPU is very low though), so I started freezing a few tracks. But it seems that the volume level of the ‘frozen’ track is noticeably lower than the original. For example I have a line in guitar track which I duplicated, then froze the original track. The dupe track was set to the same volume as the original, I didn’t touch it at all, -14.94. I then did an ‘A/B’ comparison between the two and in order to match the volume of the dupe track, I had to take the Freeze track up to -10 or so, basically about 5 difference. I checked this with a vocal track and an EP track and it was about the same difference. The tracks are using AU plugins, no IAA. MixBox being one of the main ones.
Is this expected? Am I doing something wrong if I am hearing this difference in volume? It seems odd that the volume would get attenuated like that and it also throws the mix out of whack when a few tracks are in freeze state and others are not.
