Default How to fix 24 bit Mix Down??

Hi,
I have a perfect mix down for my session, but there is 1 problem. All the audio files were recorded at 24bit instead of 16bit. I used the Dither POWr plug-in on my Master Track at 16bit and after I bounce to disk the song is way too low. How do I fix this problem?

bit depth has less to do with the "level" than you think it does.

Bounce down to 24 bit wav and import back into a Pro Tools session. Does it have the same level?

I think what you are looking to do is to master your final track, so that the levels would match that of a commercially produced CD, which is a subject all it's own; an art and a science.

Lots of articles and instruction on the matter over at the Project Studio Handbook.
