Odd behavior with Ableton on track export

Just wrapping up a remix I did, and I’m trying to export track as a .AIFF. I’m using iZotope Ozone on the master channel, and when I have the dithering set to 16bit, MBIT+, Dithering Amount on Low, Noise Shaping on Ultra, the output results from Ableton sound like, well, ****.

I’ve made sure Ableton’s set to 16bit output, 44.1Khz Sample Rate, NO dithering, and absolutely nothing on the master bus after Ozone, but no matter what I do it just sounds terrible.

For the moment I’m going to export the track as a 24bit file with no dithering and then convert to MP3, but I can’t for the life of me figure out WHAT is going on. It’s driving me nuts. Any input or suggestions would be great! Thanks. :slight_smile:

OK, apparently I’m just a retard.

I had my “Sound Enhancer” feature on in iTunes because I was out of the country traveling trying to listen to a quiet movie on the tiny built-in speakers.

And I forgot it was on. So it was making everything sound like crap.

I turned off. And now the track sounds fantastic, if I do say so myself. :slight_smile:

ive done that before myself lol.

I had a feeling it was user error…
