With no information in the users guide I am having some difficulty understanding the Normalization function in Studio 1. I created a song with individual tracks and tried to "normalize" them, assuming normalization would set them all to 0dB. This was not the case. One track it increased the volume level while another track it decreased the volume level so it could not be heard. Also, the Mix sliders do not seem to show what the actual track level is since they change when selecting different tracks and do not show any change when 'normalization' is selected. As a result, I have had to manually find dB settings for all my tracks before I can actually start mixing. This is very tedious and should be unnecessary if Normalization worked as expected.
Therefore, can you provide some sort of functional definition for Normalization as it works in Studio 1, and provide a function to allow the user to define the Normalized dB level like other DAWS do?
Your answer did not address my question. The forum does NOT provide a Studio 1 functional description of its Normalization function. Also, the forum provides contradictory information: destructive vs non-destructive.
While experimenting we found Studio 1s Normalization is based upon transients in a track and as a result acts differently with each track, therefore, providing no consistency. Would you please provide a functional description of what it does and how. It would be helpful if you corrected the contradictions and falsehoods in the forum,
Bottom line: using a forum to provide an answer is a lazy way of doing business. Forums are personal opinions, NOT facts. Nor do they have the functional knowledge of how something was designed to work. Only the developers have that knowledge. Your assistance is greatly appreciated, but shortcuts don't help.
