I'm trying to encode a .wav file to ac3 with the surcode plugin that I have purchased, and the resulting ac3 file is quieter than the original .wav. I know this is normal, but I need it to match the original as close as possible. I've read that if you set the Dialog Normalization to -31, and the Dynamic Compression Preset to 'None', the resulting file should match more closely. The thing is, I swear I've done that in the past, and it worked, but now, it doesn't.
I'm producing a stereo track, with Complete Main selected, and can't think of anything else!
Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.
