View Full Version : Program to make audio files the same volume/level
26-07-2003, 09:23 AM
I'm going to be organising a concert very soon, and I want the sound to be done for it computer-based. I want to rip all CDs/Tapes which need to be used onto the computer so that the sound tech doesn't need to worry about finding and changing CDs/Tapes.
The problem is, not all CDs and Tapes are recorded at the same volume. Is there some kind of program out there which will automatically make a group of audio files the same volume?
It would just make life easier regarding setting levels on the PA system
Audio Catalyst has a Normalisation feature that you can use to make all ripped MP3's the same volume as you rip them, I am sure the other programs do similar things as well. It is adjustable to what ever level you want.

MP3Gain does it well.

Thanks Odin and Big John. I'll have a hunt around for those programs
If you are using Win2000 you may need to get the ASPI drivers to rip from cd to stereo MP3 (may also apply to XP) if you do then I can e-mail you the ASPI file as its only 148 k.

Most programs that you use, to rip cds or record tapes to your computer, have the normalization feature incorporated into the program, and its a matter of making sure its turned on before you start recording or ripping.

The machine I intend to use it on will be a Win98 machine, which I have tested the program dBPowerAmp Music Converter on, and which rips CDs sucessfully.
The program Big John suggested (MP3Gain) works excellent, but I have only tried it on a WinXP machine at this stage.
Thanks for all your help.
