I am doing some mastering in a S1v3 project.
My imported audio files are peaking at around -6db on the output meter, using PkRMS metering.
I want to use the PreSonus Limiter to increase loudness so they will all peak right around -1db. I load the Limiter into Master/Post, and when I raise the Input my audio gets louder. However as soon as they go above -3db I start to hear horrible digital clipping distortion.
I have seen the Limiter used in videos online to push audio right up to 0db without any distortion happening. I can't work out why it's not working for me. Can anyone help me with this?
