nice to hear ya regular boo! ;)
many ways to do that mate apart from the obvious Volume knob. The first thing I would do is Normalise the track - digitally, this doesn't harm the sound in any way, it just lifts the level of the recording until the loudest part hits the maximum volume level you set. Next you have options : Each of these can be applied either to the whole track, or, using multiband tools, parts of the sound spectrum (eg just the very low sub bass, or a bit more mid etc). Compression : which will make the track louder at the expense of dynamic range - I could rant for a while about the over use of compression in todays 'chart' music, but wont :P You could use a Multiband compressor to make sure you only increase the volume of the bits you want. EQ - usually you're going to want multiband EQ (that is to say, the ability to hone in on very specific parts of the sound spectrum and tweak them. This can be used really effectively to improve a mix but take care, often you can end up ruining the vibe of the song completely with overuse of EQ. Limiter : will simply set a maximum db threshold for the mix and squash any sound that goes over it - rough and ready, mostly useful for single instruments, live recording and in Broadcast (overused by most radio stations). or, in the digital realm, there are many tools built just for the job. I'm not sure what the best software suites are out there these days. Logic Pro is what I use - and it's full of Loudness/Volume control plug ins. Even the open source audio editors should have basic 'maximisers' - A tool such as TC Electronic's Finaliser - a mastering box of tricks with has a software counterpart would be perfect as it is basically a compressor, EQ, limiter and amp, in one tool. All i'd say is take care : It's far preferable to have people need to turn the volume knob up when listenning to your track, than to squash all the dynamic range out of it using the above tools - just so it's loud! There are of course artistic reasons to do this - various genre's rely on it, but generally, the human ear will be fed much more satisfyingly by a recording with a wide Dynamic range. oh. dear. jibber. need boobacks - jibbering on my keyboard hurts my fingers!
Wow sounds great. Must be a fair bit of kit there. Good you have managed to do something you enjoy doing and get some money out of it. Wish I could be doing that. I like mind reading (like Derren Brown) trying to do my own first show at uni, hoping it will go well. Do you know how to make a track sound louder without badly distorting it?
