That seems unusual. Is there any duplication through sends? What DAW are you using?
Cubase Pro... damn Kontakt created 48 lanes on each of eth 4 instances when I was working out how to use the darn thing...that probably don't help.. Method was lacking only pure stupidity and 25-30 hours. hopefully it gives you all a good laugh. Certainly I have learnt a shitload, watched "your mix sucks 1-9 " ..really like that guy. Didn't get around to learning side chaining, or side eqing this time.
I'll return to this track in a month or so, export each element with eq off , and then try again after normalising each lane separately. Fucking ears are ringing now..I know I stood next to eth end sound system for 8 hours every time I went now
I am sure there will be plenty of time to discuss stuff on Prod forum in a week or 2..decompression time
Oh and if you really want to piss on your own chips, put a Break or Dillinja track into your comparison ref track... sandcastle kicked over, face pissed in, go home crying to mom
