Right, I apologized above, I accidentally posted in WL 7. Feel free to move it.
It's not necessarily *too much* gain, without the audio file to know. I'm aware of that and it should still put peaks at about -3 dB. Regardless, shouldn't it be playing back exactly as the CD/DDP will sound? The DDP is heavily clipped, and the playback and render are not.
The track gain control works as-expected, and I can hear changes and see them on the meters.
I know this is weird and looks more like user-error (and it may be somehow), but I'm not sure where this could be coming from. BTW, running 8.0.1 in 32-bit mode, because of an older plug-in that is being used.
I did a fairly long screen recording to show the whole process. Let me know if there's some other info it doesn't show that it relevant...https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/538 ... ipping.m4v
