I downloaded one of those cymatics projects to see how they got their stuff so loud. When i looked at the master it was all stock ableton stuff, and when I turned all the mastering off to see where it was peaking at.... it was actually redlining haha.

So I'm starting to think a lot of these artists with super loud tracks do the same. The weird thing was, it wasn't super noticeable as distorting with the mastering chain turned on.
yea word of caution dont go off the cymaticks projects there awfully done and pretty much a con.
