I'm doing demos in my home studio using Cubase VST on a Mac. I'm mixing to stereo at 24 bits and then putting the mix through Cubase Dynamics for mild limiting and then BBE Sonic Maximizer, and then using the Dithering stage for the 16bit conversion. Then I burn to disc with Jam. So far, no matter what I've tried gets my CD even close to the loudness level of the average commercially-mastered disc. What I've tried includes doing the mix at +3db in Cubase and then boosting the gain by another 3db in Jam. It seems to have no effect. Anyone have some advice on how to get more level on the disc? Thanks.
