Level maximization takes the loudest sound peak of the recording and pushes it to the maximum allowable sound level, along with the rest of the audio relative to it. If the loudest sound peak is already at the maximum allowable sound level, it can’t be made louder using level maximization. You can, however, maximize the sound level of an audio segment independently of the rest of the recording, although this may yield sound level variations that may feel unnatural to your ears. To maximize the sound level of an audio segment, use the Segment Selector sliders to highlight a specific segment and then tap the Maximize Level button.
TIP: As a general rule, it’s best to first delete the audio segments that you don’t want to have in your final recording prior to maximizing the sound level. This ensures that the non-relevant and potentially loud noise that the microphone might have picked up is not taken into account by the level maximizing operation (for example, any noise that occurred before or after the relevant recording).
