I really like to bounce my mixes and normalize the tracks. They sound perfect until I record a vocal and piano track. Love the peak on the piano in the mix after normalization but the vox are too high in the mix...No matter what I seem to do I cannot get a piano/vox correct when I normalize. Multiple tracks with multiple instruments sound great with no problem after normalization.. When I do a mix without normalization--it sounds great, just too low of a mix compared to the other tracks that have all been normalized.
Is the only way around this on this piano/vox track to increase the master of the mix and not normalize so the levels are as high as the normalized tracks?
