Absolutely notMister Fox wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 22:39 CESTSo you're using a VU (300ms) also as peak meter?
You are making the assumption that I am using mix bus vsts to build volume , I am not.....it all amounts to "glue"Mister Fox wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 22:39 CESTSorry - but your values are irritating.
A VU setup to to 0dBFS would mean that the VU shows -10VU to -5VU or something if a signal at -15dBFS max peak (transient heavy material) would come in. This is why I (as Audio Engineer) insist on properly naming what values you mean. However... if you use your mixing engine this way... you either under drive/overdrive your mix environment, and then I understand why you use several compressors/limiters.
I`m fine thanks.......We`ve both got better things to do and I as you are, am getting irritated .Mister Fox wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 22:39 CESTThis topic however drifts off into "gain staging schemes".
If you're getting -14LUFS ILk as final result, and you don't have any rogue max digital peaks, you'll barely reach that value with 320kbit. So you're save from clipping either way.marc clement wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 22:21 CESTThe SSl knocks about 1db off . The Millennium in M/S as I just like the shape it gives. Its not actually compressing. I am only using one limiter , a true peak limiter, set at -2 only to prevent any overs from downstream file compression e.g. MP3
If you have to turn your mix down on the summing bus, maybe it's time to overthink your mixing technique in general?
Let me know what you think of my mix!
