    Select a track, click Edit > Song Info. Click the Options tab, the volume slider for that track is on that pane. The limitations of that adjustment I outlined in Post #26. It won't likely fix your...

    Audible? Don't you mean....something else? I'm fairly sure Audible is an audio book service.

    Well, yes, it's nice to get it right when you record the original, but it's not a disaster if you need...

    You can do this with a selection of multiple tracks too...BUT...in Apple's infinite wisdom they've made the "volume" control a linear control. That means their so-named "+100%" position all the way...

    OK, got it. I never did find a "gain" plugin. I did find the EQ plugin, and there's an overall gain control in that, but to use it I had to click off all 9 EQ sections to apply just gain only. ...

    Thanks Jonathan.

    What do you do if your file needs more than +6dB of gain? And how do you determine how much gain is enough?
  6. I agree, a better recording would be the best...

    I agree, a better recording would be the best way, but it's also probably the most demanding in time and effort. It takes seconds to try the other solutions. If the result is not satisfactory, then...

    The OP is not the only one reading this thread, nor is he/she the only one with the issue that might benefit from your expertise.
    I've related my experience honestly. I feel that when possible,...

    Just thinking of the other (self included) frustrated potential Garage Band users here that what to do this. If you post useful info, we'll all be happy. I just posted Audacity instructions, assuming...

    Here's an example of what I'm after from you for Garage Band instructions.

    Opening and adjusting an MP3 file using Audacity.

    Download from https://www.audacityteam.org/ Install and launch.

    Well, it's not a hijack. You offered a solution that every Mac user has access too, nothing to download or install it's all right there. But no instructions, and Apple's hand-leading doesn't get...

    Ok, I'll bite: so I got me a low-volume .mp3 file in iTunes. How do I open it in Garage Band? All I know is I have this low-volume file I can see in iTunes, and I've never even seen Garage Band...
  12. True, but that's a different problem, different...

    True, but that's a different problem, different solution. It doesn't address a single, or group of low-volume tracks.
  13. The reason I didn't recommend Garage Band is...

    The reason I didn't recommend Garage Band is simple. I'm an audio professional. I find the Garage Band interface completely confusing, clearly designed to take someone who has never done anything...

    In iTunes, go to Preferences > Playback and click on "Sound Check". Sound Check is Apple's version of "Replay Gain". The way it works is when you import a track, iTunes scans the entire track and...

    Most audio editing applications have noise removal/reduction features, and there are some available as third-party plug-ins.

    Audacity is free, and has a noise reduction function in "effects". It...

    Not a bad idea, but you'd then have "special" versions of every track you'd want to use in the playlist. I do something similar for a different application. I have a special playlist for background...

    I don't have the exact timeline, but Apple "broke" certain combinations of iOS, MacOS and iTunes. You've found a combo that won't work. Sorry. My wife has a similar problem, she's locked into an...

    You can also select the folder with the new music files in it and drag/drop it onto the iTunes icon. That will import the music. Then in iTunes click "Recently Added" under "Library", select your...

    The OP said he didn't want to use the (cross)fade feature, but rather want's a delay...probably a bit of silence...between tracks.

    There is no iTunes setting that will do that. However, if you...

    The room seems like it would be very reverberant, with the bed being the main absorber. The floor and ceiling are the largest reflective surfaces. Carpet on the floor helps absorb high frequencies...

    The PG42 is not a current product. The general character of both mics would is similar, but I have no experience with either one. Frankly, I'm not sure what you are going for, or how you define...

    It sounds like you may have done this the hard way, but hard to tell also.

    If you use iTunes to "rip" a CD, and you're connected to the Internet, iTunes should find and add the ID3 tags...

    Generally all rooms have low frequency resonances. They are hard to control. The lower male voice stimulates these resonances, which is why voice studios have measures to reduce them. Thick corner...

    Well, as an audio professional, I disagree with at least some of that article. Everyone has their favorites. The OP seems to not want much bass, and most of those will be bass-abundant. The 416,...
