    I'm using Garageband, I have a mix that has a crescendo into a loud orchestra hit, It seems this is keeping the volume of the final product a lot lower than it should be. Any thoughts on how I can raise the overall volume and still have that orchestra hit stand out?

    Thank you

    Is it a software instrument, or an apple loop?

    You could use track automation to raise the volume. Or a touch of EQ plus a sprinkle of compression on the tracks channel strip.

    It's an audio recording from a synth. When I export the song to a file the volume of the whole song is too low after garageband normalizes it and whatever else it does. peak limiting and compression help a little but it's still about half as loud as most recordings.
