Default My sound seems limited ?

Hi guys,

This morning i was working on a project of mine and recorded a song (the red parts). Then after awhile i closed it and went away to do other stuff.

My problem is there:
When i wanted to resume my record, it seems to clip now. No setting either on my DAW, DI box & audio interface was changed. To show an exemple i re-recorded the same riff and put it on top (the grey parts). Something is limiting it and i don't understand whats happening there.

Anyone have any idea ?

Hi Clouts. I eould hope someone will help you out but really more information is required!

Please list your instrument, DI box, interface (Reaper is presumed!).

Itcould be many things. Is any part of your system battery powered? If so check or change the battery.

Start a new project from scratch. Do you still have limiting?

Certainly looks limited or clipped. Is there any distortion on the newer tracks compared to the red? Any high/over level lights coming on on your interface?

Thanks for the feedback Allybye.

I found out that was my guitar battery the problem by using my gf fender with passive pickup !!!
And yes the sound was distorted and clipping in reaper on the grey track.

Thanks a lot.
