    I've just recently (with a new project I've started)to print my mixes inside of Pro Tools because of the nature of my setup at home. I've used a Masterlink for a while and now that I'm switching over to printing inside PT I'm running into a little problem.

    I cannot for the life of me get my track to not clip like crazy. I've got got a stereo audio track setup with it's In Bus 1-2 out Analog 1-2 and all the tracks Outs set to Bus 1-2.

    The printed mixes waveform is all over the board, very peaky. I have the stereo audio track at unity and my master at -10. The strange this is when I play back the mix in PT the master and the stereo audio track aren't clipping but the waveform is obviously clipped fairly badly. When I listen back I'm fairly positive I hear distortion on my stereo (this project is a fairly heavy rock band so it is a little hard to tell).

    Any help would GREAT. Thank you.
  2. if you are using le you need to set up your inputs to -10 when you start a new project

    Would changing the master fader to Bus 1-2 help?

    first of your gain structure is probally wacked, you need to mix to the master fader, so make sure its not peaking as your mixing, secondly, after you have a mix setup, highlight the entire PT file, and go to bounce to disk command, and it will bounce a separte stero file of your mix , in whichever format that you want
