Audio on Exported Video is too quiet
I've exported a few sequences of mine, but the audio seems to be quiet.

I recorded actual audio perfectly onto the tape, in FCP6 I watched the levels on the meter, and everything seems fine, but I think what I'm having trouble is the volume during playback and after an export. The volume seems to be too quiet even when I turn my speakers on at full blast.

I dabbled around, and realized in the audio tool, there was the master levels, so I cranked that up to 10, and did here a rise in volume, but not very significant. I need it to be much louder, so that it could be heard clearly when my speakers, or a fellow YouTuber's speakers are atleast 1/2 -2/3 up on the volume.

What am I missing? Any help is much apprecited.

I think you'll find that if you run audio destined for small speaker (like laptops) playback, running the audio through an audio compressor plug in to squash the dynamic range and then raising the overall level (remember: compressing ALWAYS makes audio QUIETER - you need to add gain after removing dynamic range), you'll end up with something more "listenable".
