BURNED CD VOLUME TOO LOW

Recommended Posts

sorry i used the "BURN CD" option under "UTILITIES" in Band Lab Cakewalk. I'm not understanding "PRE-BURN VOLUME. " 
 Do you mean was the playback adequate volume? Yes.

no. do you mean the peak levels shown on meters during playback?

 

Yes what is the Level during Play back.

Can I suggest you download Youlean's Free level Metering tool it will tell you what your LUFS level is and your True Peak level

You should be aiming at a true Peek of between -1dB and -0.3 dB for CD burns

Your LUFS is a little subjective I find -14dB LUFS is find you might prefer -9dB LUFS  or -6dB LUFS

Yes it's a topic with a huge amount of info on the net. And the threshold does depend on where the song is going.

CD's are often pushed right to 0 but that's not a good idea if your converting to a MP3. And all the on line delivery formats are a bit different but -14 LUFS seems standard. Been playing with the combo of the Loud max and the You Lean as in Cactus Video and wow, this is perfect. I've been fighting this for years. I was just using a Compressor on the master, not a brickwall. I don't think Cakewalk has a brickwall?

@Jack Cat historically it had the Pro Channel Brickwall limiter. 

By Historically do you me I used to have? I don't see one there now? Unless you mean the CA-2A which is what I have been using on my Master bus. But it seemed to let a lot of peaks get by.

That's because it's a compressor, not a limiter

No I mean historically SONAR had a Pro Channel brick wall limiter.  As Bristol_Jonesy notes CA-2A is a  compressor.
