I am running Waves L3 MultiMaximizer Stereo VST plug-in. I run this in Ableton all the time, no CPU issues, no level issues.
When I try to run it in Audacity, the input levels seem too hot. My plugin is reading the inputs as high as +9dB which is very confusing. Ableton will only output to the level of the fader on the channel, normally a max of 0dB.
How do I get Audacity to send the VST a 0dB gain signal and not such a hot signal? I’ve tried messed with the track volume but that doesn’t seem to influence the levels I’m reading in my VST.
Your thoughts appreciated. Sorry if I’m missing something obvious.
