wouldn’t it be better if a dc offset device was there instead on master? Maybe it’s better to fix dc offset on the channel/generator that causes it. I doubt the dc offset algorithm is capable of finding it in a massive sum…? Or doesn’t it matter?
Oh damn there is already a dc offset device
Please delete the thread!
If you have 20 tracks and only 1 of them is causing a DC offset/bias problem, then it’s much better to simply fix that single problematic track/sound, rather than applying the DC correction to the entire mix.
The built-in DC filter on the master track is more of a convenience than anything else. I would typically recommend leaving it disabled.
The algorithm that corrects the DC offset/bias is really just a high-pass filter that removes extremely low frequencies (which the DC offset/bias can be considered as). While the filter itself is designed/tuned to not affect “normal” frequencies too much, it’s still not necessarily the best idea to apply this thing to your whole mix, as it may cause some phase shifting.
