I'm having clipping issues with a mix, and I'm curious how yall would approach the problem.
Let's say you have a drum bus and a bass guitar track, and you are happy with both. Neither of them clips when soloed, but when you mix them together and get a good balance, you get clipping on the main output. What do you do? And how do you go about ensuring that a the whole song doesn't clip as you add tracks?
I've had minor clipping in a rendered song before, but never this much audible distortion on playback. I'm not sure what that means. I feel stuck. I'll lower the overall volume and put a 0db limiter if I have to.
Any advice would be appreciated. I have a lot to learn! It seems like I can get away with a lot more when mixing live music.
