Hi, I am about to ask something that is probably super basic and something I should be aware of several years into music production. However, I am not so forgive me for the possible stupidity. This volume issues revolves around the use of samples.
I was wondering if it is possible to attain a equal, or louder, volume when using samples/layering audio files? When I add drums to a imported sample I generally have to turn the sample audio or drums (or both) down to avoid clipping/distortion. Is there a way to bring the volume back up without distorting the output? 99% of my mixdowns leave the music sounding flat and thin.
Sorry if this is a repeat question.
