Please can someone help me with this because it's driving me insane. I have a copy of Garageband '11.


I'm trying to record a simple piano/guitar piece of music. All finished, and just want to export it now.


I find that when I export the file, no matter which volumes I change, it comes out at the same volume. Too loud. I know the normal complaint is it's too low. Mine is that no matter what I reduce (master volume, individual instrument volumes etc) I cannot get it any lower.


I'm tried not compressing the file on exporting. Makes no difference. I've tried sending to iTunes instead of exporting. Makes no difference. I've tried playing in different players [e.g. vox] makes no difference.


Please can someone help me with this?


The advice online seems to be that if you reduce the master volume meter thing, then the export volume will be lower. This is not the case. At least, not for me.


Any advice/pointers GREATLY appreciated : )
