True peak level retaining.

True peak level retaining.

When viewing the true peak level readings of some 16 bit 44.1 wav music releases with Youlean (in Wavosaur) some of them display around +5/6db true peak or there abouts.

After I export something (all done ITB) to a 16 bit 44.1 wav, which initially gives a true peak reading of approx. +8db in the project, when I then view it with Youlean it's reduced to around +3db true peak.

How could the higher true peak levels be achieved/retained?

I have thought of maybe 1 or 2 reasons as to how or why with some releases there can be higher true peak level read outs but just wondered if anyone else has any ideas/suggestions.
