Question My Finalizer 96K produces distortion in the mid-range. When I bypass the unit the distortion goes away. What's going on

Please try to disable both Softclip functions:
  1. In the Normalizer by setting Clip:Hard
  2. In the Limiter by setting Clip to 0%.
The Softclip function in the Normalizer and Limiter block WILL add (audible) distortion from approx. -6dBFS referring to the internal levels for each block as shown in the Tools > Flow display. This is especially audible with acoustical or classical program material.
