I haven't encountered this before but when I recently bounced a mix down from 24/96 to a stereo file at 16/44.1, what I got back didn't sound like what I was bouncing (i.e. levels, certain EQ didn't seem quite the same). I was using "convert after bounce", "best" quality to a stereo interleaved BWF file. Any ideas? I'm at the end of an album project (and my wits) as I've done this very thing many times before. Using a dual 1Gig processor G4 with a Gig of ram. Hints: the mixes are plug-in intensive with plug-ins across Master fader. Help!
