Default Re: Consolidating clips causes distortion

There's a bug in 2021.3.1/2021.3 where if you have a 32bit file in a 24bit session (whether you change the session bit depth from Session Setup or you import a 32bit file into a 24 bit session) and you consolidate, you'll get full peak distortion. I've reported it to Avid.

Not really - just because the mp3s aren't at full scale doesn't prove the original files on the track aren't - as you've both suggested the track could have gone through a master fader or some other sort of attenuation before exporting. As Rich says we need to see the session really, but from the info we have it suggests it's simply a problem between the 32Bit - >24 Bit conversion.

Edit : also just to say it took me about 30 seconds to be able to replicate this problem. (Turn the clip up beyond 0dBFS, still sounds fine on playback; consolidate, sounds awful)

Wow - hadn't seen that - good to know. Wonder if this is the OP's problem?

Where's Darryl when you need him? He's like an encyclopedia of these things.
Did someone upset him, or did he get Covid? Seems a shame that he suddenly went silent.

Don't know what other info you'd be seeking - until the OP either posts the actual session, or the files, or gives more information it's impossible to know, but BScout's post seems the likely explanation right now.
