I’m sure long-time Renoise users are well aware of this already, but the default settings in Renoise, not in Prefs but in the Song > Options screen, is to have -6db of headroom for all tracks.
I’m just curious – are people here leaving that the way it is, or changing it to zero, the way it would be in nearly every other DAW ?
I only discovered this because I couldn’t figure out why a sample I was playing in Maschine sounded so much louder than the exact same sample triggered in Renoise. After much head-scratching and then a (belated) Google search, I did find that Renoise defaults to this -6db headroom. My other DAWs (Ableton and Maschine) don’t do this, so literally everything I use in those (samples, plugins, yes everything) will sound 6db louder than they sound in Renoise.
It seems to me that having this on (the default -6db setting) would drastically effect how one goes about mixing!
Are you guys leaving it at the default setting? If so, any further thoughts on why? It’s really a pretty drastic difference to have across the board for all tracks, compared to the default setup of every other DAW I’ve used…
it’s not a problem, obviously, because (once you know where the setting is) it can easily be changed… so mostly I’m just curious about whether people are working this way or not!
