RE: Sends and weird volume / tone issues
Hello, quick question here.
I have been working with Ardour 2x for the past few weeks. Learning the system, figuring out the snags. Got it mostly handled, except for one weird issue:
I have sends on my individual tracks going to a bus that I use to add compression and eq. I figured it makes more sense to do things this way, rather than adding comp and eq to each individual track.
This works well, but I ran into an issue where I had two tracks that have significantly less volume / tone than the other tracks. Selecting undo / solo would restore the tracks to their normal sound, but when exporting the file, the problem is present in the export.
I worked around this by removing the send on each track, and adding comp/eq on both tracks to get my export sounding like I wanted it to.
What's bothering me, is that I don't understand what went wrong! Removing and adding the sends again resulted in the same loss of volume, so I had to use the workaround I described above.
Does anybody know what I did wrong?
