I just finished a project in Ardour 4.7.0 on Ubuntu Studio 14.04
There are several regions in many tracks, some of them overlapping in
time, most of them not.
On most of the tracks I used a compressor and a limiter (both from calf)
to avoid peaks and potential clipping. I set the limiter's output gain
to minus 2.2 dB.
As expected, when focused on one of the tracks, the meter doesn't pass
However, when focused on the master bus, the meter 'clips' and peaks at
Why is this? Will it affect export and normalizing of the project? If
Thankful for any and all input,
