Help with Normalization

Post by ptfitzy » Wed Feb 24, 2010 7:49 pm

OK prople out there. I could sure use your help. Even though I use the "Automatic Loudness Volume" in "Preferences", the MP3 songs I "Burn", many are louder than other songs on the CD. I have my MP3 CD Wizard on "Specify".

I tried "MP3 Gain". However, when I add my folder or files, it says it is a "Read only file".
Also, in that program it says to download the "AACGain". When you click on that, there are several files under "AACGain" and I don't know what to download there.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated,
Thanks, Ptfitzy

We don't make or distribute MP3GAIN, I have used it before though. It changes your mp3 files, that is why it is compalining they are read only. You must uncheck "read only" from the files properties.

I strongly advise against using that program, it has corrupted many of my mp3's years ago when I was a noob :-)

When you use automatic loudness in mp3 cd burner, it attempts to level the songs out as best it can, it cannot however take a -20db file and match it with a +20db file, there is too big a difference between the two.

You could import the files into Mixcraft, adjust their volumes to be the same, then export each one separately as a new mp3.

I suppose you could apply boost in MP3 CD Burner to the quiet songs and make sure you leave it off of the loud songs, as well.
