[ardour-users] exported WAV files have very low volume

Ardour exports to wav fine for me.

Make sure the Master mixer channels have good/high levels.

I assume you are selecting the range (or entire file) to export,
and using the "EXPORT" option from the File menu?

Once you export a section to WAV, can you open it up in
Audacity and check the waveform levels?
