i'm trying to find the right final levels for a alt cd i'm working on. my sound right now is much softer than pro cds i reference, but all my mixes right now are at their maximum before they start to peak. should i just leave them at this level and let the listener adjust the volume accordingly, or is there some other technique i don't know about? I was thinking of cranking up the volume and hitting it with a limiter, but i've tried this a bit and it doesn't sound right. thanks for any help.
