Hi Everyone:

Hoping this post finds you well.

I am now ready to mix my movie and am experiencing something strange. The audio is low and when I raise the volume it doesn't get loud at all. When I lower the volume it gets low. This is applies to all of my tracks except the ones that have been compressed. Before adding multiple tracks, my audio was fine. Has this ever happened to anyone. I don't want to compress the music, but it looks like I may have to if I cannot raise the volume in the mixing console.

Many thanks,

Debbie

There are many contradictory questions here.

Have these audio tracks formerly been at an appropriate level?
What compressor did you use on the tracks that are OK?
Adding more audio tracks shouldn't have any effect on the other audio tracks.
Is it possible that the compressed levels are too high and the music is correct? What do the level meters tell you?

Also, "Loudness" and "Level" are different things, but I suspect you are asking about levels. Loudness comes into the project before you burn the DVD masters or deliver to a broadcast network.

Hi Steve:

Thank you so much for your response. I rechecked the mix console and discovered that all of the tracks had Show Automation Control selected, which made the volume level limit to 6.0. Once I deselected it, the limit became 12.0 automatically. I'm not sure how this happened, but I will check to see if anything sounds different. I suspect it will.

Thanks for probing.

Best,

Debbie

Always have the Master Bus Window docked so you can always keep abreast of
your overall volume etc.
