How to normalize volume in GarageBand iOS (iPad/iPhone)

How to normalize volume in GarageBand on the iPad or iPhone to increase audio volume levels and help boost quiet audio.

In this video I show how to use the “merge” function in GarageBand iOS to normalize audio tracks, which can help when you have recorded audio at a low level and can’t clearly see the waveforms. This also allows you to lower the volume on your faders and use less compression to get the mix balanced.

The steps for this process are simple:
1. Create a “clean” audio recorder track
2. Copy you existing audio to the clean track
3. Use the merge function to normalize the audio levels
4. Changes the preset or add effects back in manually
