New 5.1 mix too loud, weirdly balanced?
Hey guys. I've been previewing my 5.1 mix on my home theater and, while the results are satisfying, I've been noticing that all the tracks seem too loud. I compared with the original audio from the source DVD and the levels seem more balanced, the rears especially.
For example purposes, when I preview my mix, I have to keep my amp volume around 29-31, but when I try the original audio on the DVD, I put it closer to 40.
Any ideas what the problem is, or how to fix it? Thanks! (Hope that made sense!)
