If you normalize to 0db and then start mixing with your faders set to the same, you're going to redline quickly. It was a good idea of Bitwig to default the faders to -6db.
check that! the volume is about the internal level not the set fader level
the volume on wavs will affect the plugins fyi
I saw that too, the guy is also talking about K metering which is very usefull.
I had some issues many years ago with normalizing and my "endresult" for this topic was: never do it again and you spare yourself many issues, which are most times darn subtle technical stuff.
@offtopic: can it be that ableton normalizes just everything by default when you drag drop something in?
yeah actually issue is not just with anloug emulated plugins.
When eq you actually phase the waveform. Can cause peaks by just lowcutting that raise peak by 1to 3+ db.
Imagine putting a compressor after eq.
meaning you will be over 1 to 3 db over max threshold of 0 db. The peaks will actually hit over. Same with limter.
k-14 great stuff. This way we dont have to worry about how the plugins are emulated. but sometime it can be a bit to much. All techincal stuff all technical. it just creates a mess if we think of this to much. But there are causes i would use normalizing. Like compairing samples i like to have peak at same to make right judgement on precieved volume of a kick sample etc. then drag it down by going in and change level of wav. (not fader)
