It's still not clear what exactly is happening if you export
'the mix' i.e. the output of the master strip, including all
plugin processing, automation, etc. This signal normally is
not recorded, there are no peak files for it. The only way to
find the peak value in that case is to perform the entire
process. And only then this output can be normalised, either
by using a stored copy of the output or by doing everything
