Easy guys, need some advice on audio and mixing in general as I am completely clueless in this area. Theres this track im probably not gonna finish, but theres something pissing me off for a while; the song is quiet itself (in level comparisons to other tracks I play on my computer), but if I turn the output up it starts clipping. Should I adjust all the levels individually in each channel? What can I do next time to avoid having a generally quiet track? I dont wanna crank the levels up to avoid distortion..
Another thing that pisses me off is the fact that in the mixer the output levels are reaching red, whereas in the individual channels their all at average levels. I only have one bus at the time and its to apply EQ to the kicks. As I said I am completely clueless about this so I have no idea where this is coming from
