I'm curious to know how others who are keeping all of their tracks in one big session file go about maintaining a consistent volume between them. I am often frustrated with the tracks I purchase because of the huge difference between their relative recorded volumes. Even more, I find there is often a HUGE difference between the volumes of the different click and guide tracks. Sometimes the guide tracks are easily 20 db louder than the rest of the tracks!
My method is to go within each song and find the loudest section and then adjust the individual clip volumes to try and make them consistent from song to song and then repeat this process with the guide and click tracks. The problem is that sometimes different parts need to be mixed and adjusted individually. I can't just take all the clips and adjust them uniformly up or down 5 db. I find my method works but quickly becomes cumbersome and very exhausting as you can't simply 'set it and forget it'. I have to keep making adjustments week to week and have to remember where the ciips are that I made individualized adjustments too so that I don't accidentally override these changes.
Anyone have a better way?
