Cubase LE mixdowns are always quieter.

    DFI Blood Iron mother board. Pentium Quad Core, 4 gigs of Corsair DDR2, XP Pro (32 bit), Presonus Firebox, Cubase LE version 1.0.7 Build 94.

    Anytime I mix down anything, whether a midi track or an audio track, it's quieter when I import it onto another track. It's not a matter of it clipping, it just automatically quiets it down. I can take a single midi track, mix it to audio, it it will always be quiet. I've been googling around on and off for months and have no found a solution. Anyone else ever have this problem?

    What do you mean by "quieter"? Is the signal amplitude less, or is the noise floor reduced?

    It could be about summing...
    When you re-import it, Cubase makes it quieter because you need more tracks of lesser volume to make 1 track of greater volume.

    It could be smoke blowing out my ass...

    NM, I figured it out. My tracks would be hitting above 0db, so it was cranking it down for mixdown. Thanks for trying.

    Make sure your master output fader is at 0 or just above. I found that worked best and I got no ditortion or clipping.
