How have you increased the volume: 1/ using the 'Volume' audio FX on the audio event; or 2/ using the volume slider in the track header; or 3/ using a volume envelope; or 4/ by some other means?

Thank you for your concern, Dexcon. I just tested it again, and the results are all normal. When I used it yesterday, I tried changing the volume from the output fader, volume slider, and with shift+V, but none of them made any difference after rendering. It's really strange.

Okay... I'm working on another file now, and the volume can't be changed again...😩

The situation I have tested is that when I adjust the volume to -3, the output only goes up to -5.

I've found the issue. Right-click on the audio track, and inside, there's a "Pan Type" set to "balance (-6 dB center)" for some reason. Just change it to 0 dB, and it should be fine.✌️

@amy-boboamy, yes, Pan Types are just another gem to be discovered due to the audio roots of VEGAS. They can be very helpful if you know what you need the different ones for. In any case, the default is Add Channels, so somewhere along the line this must have gotten changed either in this project or perhaps in a previous project and saved as the default track configuration. To make sure all your future audio tracks use the Pan Type you want:

  1. Set a track to that pan type
  2. Right-click the track header and choose Set Default Track Properties from the context menu
  3. In the Set Default Track Properties dialog, specify which properties of this track you want to make the defaults for all new tracks and click OK
  4. (Note you can do the same for your video tracks)
