so i'm finally going to try and learn how to do something that has puzzled me for a while now. i'm doing some basic acoustic recordings in garageband and it seems that whenever i export them to itunes, the recordings i make are noticeably quieter than "professional" recordings from the albums i've imported. how should i go about getting them up to about the same volume levels without clipping or losing clarity? no, i don't want to send them to be professionally mastered -- is there a way for me to do something about it on my own? thanks! for what it's worth, i am recording vocals/acoustic guitars simultaneously through a blue snowball usb mic into garageband on my 24" imac.
