Summary0008694: Opaque sound like LPF when recording or importing voice audio on Ardour6.6 (not analog not warm, like opaque)
DescriptionI have the exact feeling of recording in Ardour5, and feeling that the recorded audio was faithfull. Fidelity

The first take on Ardour6, was like recording with a piece of cloth in front of the mic, or with some kind of Low Pass Filter

Then i imported audio file of just voice recorder with Ardour5.12 in Ardour6.6, and the problem seems to be the PlayBack Machine, or sound.

Some Frequencies are totally cut in the high frequency, you know, what we call the High Quality Mic sound, or the Air, that was present in Ardour ever since we use it, or at minimum in Ardour5, and is gone.

Could this be part of Ardour6 config that could be changed?

I don't understand why there is no reports on this, maybe there is something i'm missing, but playback is like opaque, LPF kind of, when you compare with Ardour5.12, is there anything that could be changed to avoid this?

Sound SEEMS to be more "warm" but in fact is not, what is happening is that high frequencies are being cut, offering a much more opaque experience, that makes me feel bad, like voice was recorded with cloth in front.
