    Hi! I know this does not make sense but...

    I was finishing a mix a few hours ago. As I were using plenty of plugs and was a little lazy to deactivate some so as to open the junior mastering plugs across the master fader, a strange thing happened:

    At first, I had: Q10RTAS > TC MASTER X 5 TDM > Power Dither TDM > PAZ TDM

    The stereo mix was not clipping or touching 0 dB. However, red lights were showing up at the Q10 RTAS with little eq. Yes, I attentuated the inputs of Q10.

    Then, I decided to change for Q10 TDM and those reds were not there anymore. Then, I started to add resonalble dbs at 60 and 120 and of course some reds popped up. So why did the RTAS version showed reds and not the TDM?

    has anyone noticed this behavior before? Erik mentions it is something related to Waves.
