@Chordwainer there was a 2 day frustration mode at which point I was about to scrap Studio One.
I did untold amount of CD renders, printed to CD, to mp3, to whatever you can think of and it kept cutting my first 2-3 millisecond from each track.
It is not latency, this plugin (Ozone 8) chops up the beginning of each track in Project mode. This is the mastering mode in Studio One.
In the end I just used another Limiter https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/trstealthlimiter/ which also has dither, although I think I prefer the Ozone 8 app as I could also use it to add a little more stereo widening. This one has a “harmonics” mode which also imparted a bit of a tube harmonics to the masters. Apples and oranges at this point…it’s finished
I just can’t believe how you can’t rely on anything these days, and have to double and triple check your project. It might have gone it the chopped form to radio stations, the CD burning shop, podcasts, streaming sites, etc. at which point pulling back is a lot harder.
