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
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=GarageBand/5.0/en/6560.html
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?
