I am confused about the interaction between the Master Volume and the Auto Normalizing feature when exporting to iTunes. I use a digital recorder (Zoom H4n) to record a concert band (50-pieces, woodwinds & brass), then drag the wav file into GarageBand. I do some minor editing - mainly trimming the beginning and ending, then export to iTunes. My GB project contains only one track. The exported projects seem too quiet. This Apple doc
says to try one or more of the following:

Turn on Auto Normalize (I do that)
Drag the Master Volume slider to the right
Add doubling tracks
Add compression

If I Auto Normalize, will that over-ride any adjustments to the Master Volume?

What is the best solution?
