I am working on a personal music album in Ableton Live. All my tracks (9) have been recorded and mixed inside one Ableton live file and 30 channels (audio and midi). In some tracks, e.g. guitar leads for Verse or backup vocals, the levels of recording among songs differentiate: I have been recording them for months so their volume might have differences from track to track.
How can I set them all at the same level? Ableton live does not have a normalizer effect and I am working from a MAC computer. Also, I hate normalization because I believe it kills dynamics. What choices do I have? I tried to alter their level one by one but it appears that their level varies again. Somewhere I read I could use a hard limiter for that job.
What choices or alternatives do I have ?
