In my radio work, I record one large file with several audio breaks.  Then I copy each individual piece of audio and paste it to another file before uploading it to FTP.  The problem is, the audio sounds bright when I first voice the break and play it back, but once I paste it into another file, it sounds flat and slightly muffled.  Any ideas of why this might be happening?

 

I'm using AE C6 recording with a Neumann T103 with a 286 DBX mic processor and using a Focusrite 2i2 interface and a windows desktop.

My apologies, I typed that wrong.  No I'm using Adobe Audition CS6.

I don't know how you are doing your copies, but if you make a selection, and then go Edit>Copy to new, it should sound identical.

Thanks for your response.  That's exactly what I did and what I would assume.   But when I play back what I just recorded, it sounds bright.  But that same audio, when I select it, copy it and paste it into a file already labled, when I play that same audio back again, it's muffled a little bit.  Not a deal breaker but definitely not what I first heard.  I'm wondering if the shell file I created originally is somehow corruped or impaired in some way.  Perhaps recreating all those files that hold the new audio will remove any lingering coding that might be altering the sound.

Nothing is altering the sound - it will be something you're doing. If that wasn't the case, then everybody would be complaining about it, wouldn't they? And they aren't...

 

When you say you recorded one large file, was this in Multitrack or Waveform view?

Also, what app are you using to playback the copied version of your file?

I am playing back the file out of Adobe as a WAV file.
