MP3Gain 1is a command line application, but the good news is that it comes with wxMP3Gain, a front end making your job a lot easier!
The input file formats supported by MP3Gain are MP3 and M3U, and you can load them using the file browser. You can load multiple files at a time.
MP3Gain can operate in two modes: track mode and album mode. By using the track mode, you will be able to correct a series of unrelated tracks and bring them to the same level. First of all, the application detects the volume level for each song, and then it brings all volumes to the Target Volume level.
It is recommended to use the Album mode if you want to correct related songs, taken from the same album. Compared to the Track mode, the second method does adjust volumes to the Target Volume level, but at the same time it maintains the volume differences between the MP3s in the album.
Aside from calculating how loud the sound seems to the human ear, MP3Gain can also adjust volume based on the peak amplitude of the MP3s and perform normalizing, like many other editing programs.
MP3Gain is a must for any music lover and it will prevent those unpleasant situations when you adjust the volume to the max for a quiet song and a very loud track comes next.
is a free front-end for the MP3gain.
