    Hey!

    I wonder if you know of any program, freeware or shareware, where i can load all my mp3 files in and bring them on to the same volume level, because i got a lot of songs ripped from dvd or mpg and they're way too quite compared to the rest.

    Thanks for your help! :thumbsup:

    Depends on your processor I guess - there's two parts to it - first you analyse your MP3s, then process them.

    You have two options...

    1. Track Gain - this makes all tracks the same volume.
    2. Album Gain - this makes all albums (directories) the same mean volume.

    I always use option 2 as if you imagine an album, some songs may be "louder" than others, using option 2 levaes this volume difference within an album but keeps albums closer together.

    Might be a long old process the first time but of course it remembers any tracks it's done previously so only processes any new ones you add need normalising the next time around.

    worked just perfect! i used it for 820 songs and it took a bit to analyse them but changing the the volume levels went pretty quick. thanks again adrew!
