You can also copy the exact settings from below photo. Then click ok (4). You might not find hard limiter at the top of the list of effects, just scroll a little bit down and you will find it.
Now we will normalize the track. Select the entire track and Goto Effects (1) > Normalize (2) and press ok (3) with default settings.
