1stly, Merry X-mas to the Steinberg family and user community.
I would to know why Gladiotor 2 always distort my plugins (incoming signal) as inserts in the instrument channel in Cubase.
Gladiator is on a normal preset - 1/2 Master Volume, but my compressor (for example) indicates a disorted input in red. If I do not turn down the channel volune in Cubase it exceeds 0dB.
Why is that? Is it “normal”? How does it affect? I cannot hear audible distortion though.
I will soon be starting to do my 1st real Mastering attempt, but have read everwhere that no instruments of plugins should distort or clip.
Your time and assistance would be appreciated.
