mastering in the same session but master fader plugins exceed ADC, that ok?
 
win7 i7 HD9

Hi, im trying out a new technique. mastering in the same session with the waves grandmasters collection with my Automatic Delay Compensator set to short (1024 samples, i think). anyway, i got waves linear eq and lin dynamic followed by an l3-16 on my master fader, raising the sample delay of the master fader to 10k+ samples, totaly breaching the ADC zone.however the bounce sounds fine and everything is normal.

my question is: am i right in assuming that, it wouldent matter what the ADC is set to, since the master fader is the last chain in the signal flow going out of the system?

i understand this is not a pro way to master, that a whole different thread@

thanks in advance
Mark

At first glance, you might be correct, BUT, given the delay compensation function is on, it might be attempting to align things and might cause you problems. Personally, I simply would not ever try to master and mix at the same time. Actually, the only time I use any plugin on the master is for a specific effect, or I might slap Waves L2 with dither for a quick reference mix to burn on a CD and take out to the car, or send home with a client as a ruff:rolleyes:. As always YMMV:D

I agree with Albee on this one, but if you must, just turn off the delay compensation on your master fader.
