Newbie distortion problem
Jan 7th, 2009, 08:56
I'm fairly new to Logic and have the fabulous 101 tutorial. Nevertheless, I have a question. I'm working on a radio piece with some sound effects on several tracks and I noticed the output on the master channel exceeds 0 db at one point, where the several effects are mixed in. I can hear distortion at that point as well. None of the individual track outputs at that point exceed 0 db; the problem is in the aggregate mix. I haven't encountered this before (as I said, I'm new) and haven't much experience using the compressors/limiters. What would be the simplest way to address this? I tried simply setting the volume level of the master channel at 0 db, but this seemed to lower the volume for the entire piece. I'm really just concerned with the one point where the distortion is. Is there a way to instantiate a limiter for all the tracks (say, by routing every one through an Aux?) that would leave the sound alone except where it exceeded 0 db in the aggregate? Or can I simply instantiate a limiter in the output channel? (Not sure how to do this as it currently displays no "insert" buttons.) Thanks.
