I'd like to now if I'm doing anything wrong when I'm finalizing/bouncing a song. I'm using Mac and Logic 5.5 w/Emagic sound card. The final sounds are pretty nice and clear but, I noticed after burning it to a CD and when compared with other Pro recordings that my overall volume is not as high as the other CD's. So I tried to re-bounce it back busting the master volume a bit. Well, it worked on one hand but, it did more damage at the other, as expected the clipping was noticed and it resulted in some distortion when burned to a CD. My questions are:
1. Am I'm doing anything wrong here and if so please help.
2. Is there any technique or software that will bust the overall volume without creating distortion.
