I just bought Sonar 7 Producer Edition. I use various sample libraries.
Inside Sonar, while orchestrating my samples via midi, my volume levels and all decibel levels is set to 0. My sample library volumes are also set to 0.
During playback, I can here everything loud and clear over my monitors.
But when I open the mixing console, I see that my midi files volume peak at -37, even thought over my monitors it is very loud. All the volume settings is at 0, but still during playing it is -37 on the meter.
I tried to test the volume and export the track as a wav. And not surprisingly when I tried to playback the wav file, the volume was very very low and almost inaudible to the point where I had to flush the volume levels inside Windows Media Player up to get a good playback volume.
What is wrong ? Where should I look ? Is it with my sound card's mixer, or is this a setting inside Sonar or with my Sample Libraries ?
Hope someone can shead some light.
