How to Make My Music Louder


When music is too loud, it damages your hearing and irritates roommates and neighbors. When music is too quiet, it may be impossible to hear; even on maximum volume, it may be drowned out by ambient noise, such as traffic. If you are listening to your MP3 player and the volume of individual songs is too low, you can raise their maximum volume by changing their settings in your music library. You can also make the musical instrument you play louder by plugging your instrument into an amplifier.

Things You'll Need

  • Amplifier
  • Amplifier cable

iTunes or iPod

  • Open iTunes by double-clicking on the iTunes logo.

  • Scroll through your list of songs until you locate the song you wish to make louder.

  • Right-click on the song and scroll to "Get Info." Click on the tab that reads "Options."

  • Scroll to the "Volume" slider. Slide it all the way to the right to increase the volume to 100 percent. Slide the volume about halfway to the right to increase the volume to 50 percent. Press the "Apply" or "Ok" button at the bottom of the window.

  • Repeat this process for any other songs you wish to change. Add the songs to your iPod, if desired. Connect the iPod to your computer using its USB cable and click on the "Sync" button.

Live Music

  • Try playing louder. Strum or pluck your guitar with more force, if you are playing a guitar. Hit your piano keys with more force, if you are playing a piano. In most wind instruments, you must blow harder to increase the volume. If these simple tricks fail you, it might be time to plug in.

  • Connect an amplifier to an electrical outlet. Connect a cable to your instrument and connect the other end to the "Input" jack of the amplifier.

  • Press the "On" button on the amplifier. Turn the volume knob on the amplifier towards the higher numbers.

  • Turn the volume knob on the instrument towards the higher numbers.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can make songs on iTunes louder and export them to any music player or MP3 device.
