mixcraftquestion wrote:Hello, when I mix down to a wav file (24 bit 44,100 Hz), the volume level is considerably lower than that of the project. If my Windows sound level is at 25 when I'm working on the project in Mixcraft, I have to jack it up to 32 when listening to the wav file, which is much higher than I typically set it (any other song would be way too loud at that point). I'm pretty sure 44,100 is the right setting (if I do 48,000, the electric guitar gets wiped out). I use ASIO4ALL.
I know that when mastering I can use compression on the .wav file to boost the level, but that will diminish the dynamics, so I'm just wondering if I'm setting something wrong, or if this is a normal part of the mixdown process and compression is the way to go (and if this is the case, how do I retain as much of the dynamics as possible?)
