Q. When I export my GB projects, the volume is too low, how can I fix that?
A. Open GarageBand's preferences and deselect "Export projects at full loudness" under the Advanced tab. Then work on Mastering the project.
Contrary to what Normaliziing is supposed to do (Raise the volume to just below clipping), it can also work against you. If there is some, even millisecond, spike in volume, Normalize can in fact bring DOWN the volume of your final project. In this case the PeakLimiter can help resolve issues such as this so that Normalize can function as intended. Just remember that Mastering is really the key to getting a commercial quality audio file.
