Mixed down audio file doesn’t sound right

Postby misledyouth » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:29 pm

Hey Greg,

so im experiencing this problem right now. My mixdown to WAV is just way quiet. Here is the weird part, i mixdown to WAV and play it through windows media player and it sounds way quiet compared to the mix in mixcraft. I drag the file to mixcraft, sounds great.

But, when i put the mixeddown file on my iphone in my music app, its also quiet. which makes me think it is not an issue to with with sound enhancements on my computer as the issue is happening on my apple music as well??

Hi,

Which playback device do you have selected in Mixcraft's sound device preferences? Is it different than your default Windows playback device?

In regard to playback on your iPhone, it may sound quiet in comparison to commercially released songs, because most commercially released songs use lots of compression these days.

Playback is the focusrite audio interface im using.

And no, it isnt just cause im used to audio quality of commercially released songs. When im playing songs from my project in mixcraft, it sounds perfect. everything sounds like its mixed so well. but then when i mix down to WAV things start sounding either just straight up quiet on some songs, or muddy and quiet on other songs.

I appreciate the response though, hopefully you can help me figure out how to make my mixes sound like they do in mixcraft.
