avoid random spikes
After setting up some sends my recording caught a cold. It has a spike at a certain point and I can't work out why - there's no obvious reason for it when looking carefully at each track in the editor.
I muted tracks and thought I'd narrowed it down to a culprit. But then it reappeared on another track in the same place. Then I adjusted some fader automation and it disappeared only to come back again after another play. I then narrowed it down to C* EQ's so I changed them all to SWH Triple Parametric with Shelves. All clear and then all of a sudden it's back again, even worse, in roughly the same area but a few bars along.
Is my recording doomed? Is there a procedure I should follow to resolve this? It's like chasing a mouse around the house, very frustrating!
