MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same volume.
MP3Gain analyzes mp3 files to determine how loud they sound to the human ear. It can then adjust the mp3 files so that they all have the same loudness without any quality loss. This way, you don't have to keep reaching for the volume dial on your mp3 player every time it switches to a new song.
Make each mp3 folder have the same average volume
Here are the steps to follow if you have folders of mp3s, and
A) you want to make each whole folder have a chosen overall volume, but
B) you want the volume differences between the individual mp3s inside each folder to remain the same.
(MP3Gain automatically assumes that mp3s in different folders are in different "albums")
||Click the Add Folder button |
||Navigate to where the folder that you want to convert is and select it
Repeat as needed if you have more than one folder you want to normalize
||Set your Target Volume in Decibels (dB) in the Target "Normal" Volume field.
||Click the Album Analysis button
MP3Gain will analyze all of the files and report on each song's volume level, whether any clipping occurred, and other details including the combined album volume levels.
If you are not using tags, then make note of the mp3's original volume level (the value under the Volume column) if you want to modify the volume setting back to its original value. You can also check the Analysis log if you have it enabled for these details.
||Click the Album Gain button
This will adjust all the mp3s in the album so that the overall volume of each album is as close to the Target "Normal" Volume as possible. The volume differences between the mp3s on the album will stay the same.
||Listen to your new mp3s. If they sound too loud or quiet, adjust the Target Volume setting and click Album Gain again.|
