I noticed that when i increase or decrease the playback rate and then when i return back to a rate of 1, the volume effect i had on that track is disabled. I seem to only get it back if i restart Vegas.
Is there something i am doing wrong? Or is there a setting to resolve this?
Hu rraud, when i select the "fx" option on the audio track and then select the "volume" fx. After applying the volume fx and icnrease the gain, it works, however, after speeding up the track playback rate the volume fx seems to bypass, even after i return the playback rate to unity (1)
Mom. (max): -26.45 (LUFS) at 01:01:50,958 Short (max): -28.81 (LUFS) at 01:01:52,258 Integrated: -28.71 (LUFS)
So what you saying is that i must check the loudness log prior tot he problem and then again after the problem? But still that only tells me something changed, what i am trying to understand is why Vegas bypasses the volume fx and then i have to restart vegas fro it to apply again.
@Philipb, "apply the volume gain" - once again, you didn't say WHERE you are applying it.
You also haven't said what version/build of VEGAS you are on.
I applied it to the actual event on the timeline and here's what I saw:
After I used the "rate" slider, the volume did seem to decrease. But then I clicked back to the beginning of the event and the volume went back up. If I click anywhere that causes the cursor to "jump" to a new location (while playback is continuing), the volume adjustment does return.
After using the "rate" slider and the volume decreasing, simply stopping playback and starting it again also caused the volume to go back up.
So I can confirm that it does seem to drop when using the rate slider but it is easy to get it back without having to restart the program simply by clicking in another place or pausing and restarting playback.
I then removed it from the event and added it to the track and saw the exact same results. It does drop when using the "rate" slider but by clicking to another spot on the timeline or pausing and restarting playback, it returns to the new volume.
thanks for confirming that. It happens on my Vegas 17 and also when i upgraded to 20 and it still happens. I edit entirely at a rate of between 1,5-1,8 and then when i go back to check the full edit by changing the playback rate to 1, the volume and other audio effects do not return. I assume its because i edit at higher rates as that is how i replicated the bug, but it may be something else. So the core issue is that the audio effects get bypassed after i have been editing for a while and they dont return. I cannot say for certain that its the faster playback rate that causes it, that is just what i noticed does also bypass the effects.
I think what you're experiencing may be a feature, not a bug.
Long, long ago when music was mastered on tape machines the size of refrigerators, engineers would fast-forward through a tape to the take they wanted. While the tape was running at high speed, they would lower the tape on to the play head to listen for a gap in the audio. Thoughtful engineers would lower the master volume while doing this operation. Less thoughtful engineers would forget that step and burn out all the high frequency drivers in the speakers.
