Checking these points should help you diagnose and potentially address the issue of an instrument sounding too low in volume compared to the others in your mix.
Check the Sensitivity setting for the low-volume instrument in DWe Control. If it's set too low, raise the Sensitivity setting. This adjustment could impact how the instrument responds to input, which might affect its volume.
Examine the Threshold setting for the low-volume instrument in DWe Control. If the Threshold setting is set too high, try lowering it. This action might affect the threshold at which the instrument's sound becomes audible, potentially affecting its volume.
DW Soundworks Kit View:
Open DW Soundworks and navigate to the Kit View window. To focus on the low-volume instrument, move your cursor over it and left-click. This action will select the instrument and switch the Quick Controls panel to display settings related to that specific instrument.
Quick Controls Instrument Knob:
Within the Quick Controls panel, locate the Instrument knob at the top right (white knob). Compare its setting with the settings of other instruments. If the Instrument knob is set lower than the others, adjust it accordingly. You can quickly access the Quick Controls panel for different instruments by using the drop-down menu at the top and selecting the desired instrument from the list.
DIRECT Knob Level:
Check the level of the blue DIRECT knob for the low-volume instrument. Compare this level with the DIRECT knob levels of other instruments. Adjust the DIRECT knob as needed to match the desired volume.
Verify that the DIRECT, OVERHEAD, and AMBIENCE knobs for the low-volume instrument are not muted. If mute is active, you will see an illuminated orange 'M' button. Ensure that none of these knobs are muted, as muting could be causing the low volume.
