In Topic: Game Audio Volume - Lower Vol = Less Clipping?

Ok, Now the Updated song is up. It's right below the video up top. Listen to both the original and updated version to compare and see what I did. I do apologize for the broken links from before. I guess I'm in such a rush and on my way to work that I goof up the link. Anyways, Everything is working now.

Ok, the updated version of my song is at the top! Let me know what you think about it. I was able to increase the volume even more once I put an MClass Compressor above the mixer. Lowered the input gain and lifted the output, did some other tweaks on the ratio ,attack, and release so that the compression wasn't so sudden and noticeable. I'm happy to say that this has no clipping and is the volume that I wanted when I first started it! Thank you guys for everything! I'm still trying to get the hang of compressors, but I believe that this is a good start.

First, I would like to thank everyone for all of their input. You've all given me a lot to think about. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to spend as much time tweaking my song as I would like to, but I recently figured out some things that were wrong with the mix that I fixed. I had way too much decay as the overall effect of the entire song, so I lessened it. Also, I boosted too much bass in the kicks and bass line, so I also lessened them. This actually proved to give me a lot more headroom to work with. I was able to raise the volume without any audio clipping! Now the next step is to try to enhance things with compressors. Unfortunately, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to those, so I've been trying learn a thing or two via youtube videos and my own experimentation. At some point, I will post the better sounding version of this song on this thread, but It may be a little bit. Thanks again for everything!

Thank you both for the information. So, my next question would be, Is my song at a decent volume for mastering? Should I continue designing my songs at that volume, or should I figure out a way to make them louder?

I do apologize, I was fumbling around with trying to embed my SC song into this forum. I ended up making the song public, then back to private (which ends up changing the URL). I ended up settling with just the basic link. Link has been updated/fixed.

Also, there is almost no musical audio in the SC video i chose so that u can play my song and vid at the same time to experience them both together as if they were one big production
