im asking myself this question since quite a long time. i am wondering how acid does handle the volume thing.. because if i put a trackvolume over the red marker and do a mixdown it seems not clipping like it should. somehow i have the feeling acid does apply something like a limiter on the master itself. is that true or is it me who has broken ears? ;-)

compared to logic audio for example the overall volume or the presence of a track is not the same in acid. actually i HAVE to go over red limit to achive same pressure and volume as i get in logic. so whats the deal here??

I actually (think) I experience the same thing.... For quite some time I´ve been trying to find the rich and dynamic sound that I have experienced in Pro Tools. Of course there is a difference in the pre amps (I use E-mu 1820M) but the overall sound bouncing to track/render to track is sooo different comparing the two...

When you add media to your project, there's an automatic cut applied based upon the preview fader's setting. (The same applies when you render/bounce down; if a track has a -6.0 dB cut, then so will the newly-rendered track. The newly-rendered track will also have an automatic cut applied just as added media does.)

Could this be your problem?

Media type could make a difference too. If the media added becomes a Beatmapped or Loop track, ACID will apply its timestretching capability, which might interfere with the original dynamics of the media.

Check the signal flow diagram in the help file. It should show you what you're looking for.
