Other controls in the main GarageBand window

The Master volume slider and level meters control and monitor the output volume of the entire song.

  • Drag the Master volume slider left or right to adjust the entire song's final output volume.

  • The two level meters located above the volume slider show the activity of the left and right audio channels (left and right speakers). Volume levels that are too high cause sound distortion, also referred to as clipping. If clipping occurs, the small round lights to the right of the meters (called clipping indicators) turn red. Monitor the volume levels as you create a composition to make sure the volume stays within a safe range. If the clipping indicators turn red, lower the volume, then click the clipping indicator lights to reset them.
