- Is there any kind of mastering compression that happens when rendering the entire track?
- Is it the same when exporting instruments/stems?
When I compare the rendered track (wav) to a version recompiled from exported instrument stems (wav) in Ableton Live, the Live version is significantly quieter than the directly exported Auxy reender.
I typically need to do additional mastering, EQing and compression to the Live version to achieve the same mix feel and levels.
It’s not a killer (and it would make sense if you don’t add mastering to exported stems, leaving the stems cleaner for later mastering, etc…), as I use the louder Auxy render export as the reference mix, but I’m curious to know for sure.
