    Hey guys...I've been making few tracks with LP9...when I tried to bounce so that I can hear what it sounds like....apparently the track is sounded little low...any reason why?

    Hi,

    Could be one of several reasons, here's a few :

    1 - Make sure that you DON'T use the "volume control" that appears in the bottom
    right of the main arrange page, ( small left/right slider) this directly effects the
    main stereo master output and will reduce any bounced file's level.

    2 - Are use using "bounce in place" ? for individual tracks it's useful BUT will keep
    the level of that track, so if it's reduced a lot = low level !

    3 - Is your main stereo out showing a fairly healthy level whilst your song is
    running and before you bounce ?

    Hope that helps ?

    Throw that bounced track into a new "stereo master" project. Then pull up one of the mastering templates of plugins (I'm not at a mac right now, so can't remember exactly how to do this). I have to edit these quite a bit on all of my tracks (for instance, I don't like as much compression and I mess with the eq's). You can also normalize the track as part of the bouncing process from there as well.

    yeah verify the attributes and levels of the original track, I assume you are using bounce in place... oh course, you can use the gain plug in to "fix" this later, but it's best addressed at the source...
