How to normalize all layers in a looped track at the same time (immediately after track has been recorded)?

I may have accidentally changed some default setting in Studio One 3 and not realized it. Until a few days ago, I could record a looped track, then (before 'expanding layers') choose to normalize the track. When I would then expand the layers, all the layers would have been normalized.

Since a few days ago, however, when I normal a fresh track, then expand the layers, I notice only the default layer has been normalized. All the other layers look "wimpy" and obviously have not been normalized.

To top that off, I see no way to normalize those tracks after the fact.

What's going on here?

I suspect it might be cause by having something selected (or not selected) in my "Record Mode" menu. I am including a screenshot of that so you can see what is highlighted and what is not.

To be clear, I want to go back to the setting in which all layers will be normalized when I choose "normalize" for a track (or event) that I have just recorded. I don't want just the default layer to be normalized, but rather all sub-layers of that track.

Thank you!

Hi Robert,

Clips on inactive layers cannot apply grouped editing that way, like if you selected multiple clip and normalized they would all be normalized.   That can't happen with clips on inactive layers because they can't be manually selected or grouped with clips on the active layer.
