I started using Studio One 3 Artist just a month ago. While producing the song, I had latency issues which I solved. Later, while exporting, I had an error which stated 'Clipping has occured. Signal is over 9.0 dB' which I ignored nevertheless. The .wav export of the song had annoying white noise in its background and it sounded muffled. Next, I used a limiter on the master output and also reduced the master volume. I made sure that the performance meter never reached 100% too.
This time when I exported the song as .wav, it did not show any error and the song exported successfully. But when I played the .wav export, it had white noise in its background too and it sounded muffled. I'm 100% sure that I did not play the same file again as the export was in a different location and the name was different too. I'm so confused about what to do now. I've really worked hard on that song and I really want it to be exported successfully. Please help!
