Joining two tracks of different volume


I hope someone can help - I am trying to create a backing track comprising several tracks. I understand how to do that but two of the tracks that come from CD’s are recorded at different volumes - how do I change the volumes so that they are the same?

Many thanks


  1. Import both tracks (they appear one above the other).
  2. Align them end to end, but keep them on separate tracks.

Caution: If you boost the level of either track, it can cause the audio to play back distorted, so usually it is a matter of reducing the level of the loud track rather than boosting the level of the quiet track.

  1. Use the Track Gain controls ( to adjust the playback level of the tracks so that they sound the same (and not distorted).
  2. Export your finished masterpiece.
