Normalizing? - Sound effects in Logic


I have a small contract to produce sound effects for a kids' game in a web browser. I just dabble around in Logic and this really happened by accident. I'm so scared right now!

I'm not really sure what I should do to make each sound effect about the same volume, so they're more easily integrated into the program later on. Logic's normalize tool seems to add noise, but maybe I'm using it wrong. I have tried boosting every sound/synth I'm using, but sometimes it's not enough and my volume is too low without the normalizing. What should I do?

The project is professional work, so I'd like to give it all and learn as fast as possible doing this. Any help is appreciated!

Normalizing ALWAYS enhances noise, which is why practically nobody recommends it. Maybe the best way is to add Logic's gain plugin as an insert??

Use 'Gain' in Logic to boost, and a limiter to make sure everything is at the same level.
