I’ve been with my OT for a few months now, and enjoying it quite a lot. I wanted to ask you guys is there any quality loss when doing internal recording? What I would like to do is to, for example, cue two tracks, do internal recording (source=cue), and then assign the recorded audio to one of the cued tracks, so I’ll have one free track whenever I feel like adding new sounds to song.
You’d say why wouldn’t I check it myself I actually did, I am just not sure yet. It looks like when combining low end, like kicks and bass, a bit quality loss is audible – the bottom end kinda becomes a bit less punchy. (I made sure I am listening to same dB level by assigning original and recorded audio to scene A and scene B and adjusted levels.) But on the higher frequency recording (hats, snares), I haven’t noticed this.
Also, from one of youtube videos (I think cuckoo’s, couldn’t find it later), I’ve seen that when doing internal recording, source audio level should be set to max, because otherwise after normalizing, the recorded audio may sound low quality. This is true. And I set the source to max level when doing internal recording.
