    I am producing a demo for a local band and have a decent mix for them on cd. I put the disc in and compared it to other bands of the same genre and found the levels were pretty low in comparison. What techniques can I use post-mix to get the levels up? I am new to all of this if you can't tell.

    Here is an mp3 of the mix.

    What I've done is remixed this thing and on my 24 track master in sonar i rolled back the volume to give me about -4db headroom. Then when I export the wave and import into a stereo master track I used Waves L1 ultramaximizer to boost the volume. It sounds pretty good but im not sure its loud enough still.

    ok, first read every post on the forum. just kidding, well maybe not.

    dump the L1 go with the L2. that will get you a bit louder. other than that, practice makes perfect.
