Pyro,

If you're going for LOUD, I would use Waves L1. Set the top to -3 and go for it.

Obviously, this doesn't work for everything AND it must be used tastefully, but it will make things loud.

Jim

Many of the top mastering engineers are campaigning to get the levels LOWER on commercially released CD's. The dynamics are GONE on most of todays CD's and they want them back. However, they aren't having a lot of success because the people that pay the bills want their CD's louder than the next guys.

The L1 does the metering and the gain increase, therefore, don't do any gain change when you burn.

thanks guys for the replys. So my only concern when using L 1 is that my main master fader does not peek?? is this correct.I run My mixes back through a console with everything set at unity because I think PT internal mixer buss is not so good. then I come out of the console back to PT to two tracks. and then go to cd. If my master fader says I<m not peeking somtimes my console is at +7db How can I moniter at the console for best results for the hottest cd with/out peeking. I know this sounds like alot of trouble. would be open to better ideas..with out spending any more money. do I want to not let the console get over 0db or what..help....
