Hey people:

So… first off, my NEW album drops on November 1st, free download so make sure u get your FREE download of it.

Anyway… so I’m mixing my songs together out of Garageband. Those of you familiar with the program have probably faced frustration at getting a mix together that sounds loud while in Garageband; yet, upon exporting your song, the volume goes down a bit.

This has frustrated me for YEARS, and up until this point I couldn’t figure out WHY the program kept doing that.  After all, I had marked the tab in the “Preferences” menu asking me if I wanted my songs exported at full volume, yet it never seemed to occur…

Just a few minutes ago – after trying to export my songs, then import them into Final Cut so I could turn the volume up and re-export them – I did a search online hoping I could figure out the answer to this problem.  And guess what? I did.

So, you wanna know how to export your songs at full volume? Here’s the solution: do NOT click the little box asking you if you want to export at full volume.

Yes, THAT’S the solution.  If you don’t choose that option, your songs will export fine. So…

WHAT THE HECK IS THE POINT OF HAVING THAT OPTION THERE IF IT DOESN’T ACTUALLY MAKE YOUR SONGS EXPORT AT FULL VOLUME?!?

That’s like me saying “Click on the following link to download my album,” and when you do you only get a sampler of 5 songs… but if you ignore the link and just scroll down, you can get it in its entirety.  WHAT KIND OF BACKWARD-@$$ BULL$#!+ IS THAT?!?!?

Anyway… I’m just glad I figured this out before exporting out songs for my album. But GEEZ, as much as Apple likes to make things simple, did they really have to make exporting full-volumed stuff so dang complicated?!?

-A.P.T.
