Not as easy as you think! Greetings esteemed audio enthusiasts. I require your help!

I don't want to just normalize a bunch of tracks to 0dB - I want to permanently amplify an entire album by the same amount, so the highest peak of that album is 0db, yet ambient filler tracks and such are amplified to the same level so it all melds together smoothly.

Anyone know a simple and easy way to do this?

Hmm I thought maybe there might be a batch converter that could do it. I'm having a look at the waveforms now, and it appears there are instances where the levels do in fact get up to 0dB, but for the majority of the time it's sitting between -6dB and -3dB. I guess I better just leave it, though this seems like pretty poor normalisation for a MFSL CD. Makes it a bit annoying when it shuffles to and from on the iPod, I have to turn it up and then get blasted by the next song if I forget to turn it down. It's Counting Crows "Recovering The Satellites" MFSL btw. I might just hard limit it, I'm not sure atm.

Thanks for all the help everyone. +rep
