One of the things I miss about iTunes is the ability to adjust the levels of mp3's so that they were consistent. I have had a look at Amarok and cannot find anything there that will do it. Anyone got any suggestions?

I think what you mean is range compression rather than normalization.
Normalization makes the range of volume be the full range of the format (so the quietest sound played is nearly silent and the loudest one is as loud as the sound card will do)
Range compression is kind of the opposite, so all sounds played are within a certain range, and you don't wake up the neighbors if a loud song comes on after a quieter one.

I know Audacious has a plugin for it (can't remember the name though)... surely amarok will do it... Failing that you can add a 'fake' device in alsa, and run it through JACK (from what I gather) has plenty of such programs.

There's plugins for XMMS (among others) that do that too --

gnormalize
normalize
xmms-normalize

All in Mandriva (rpm based) --

They should be in your repos, too.

Hello Folks,


I use this bash script to "normalize" my mp3 files;

#!/bin/bash
cd /home/music/unprocessed/
normalize-audio --peak *.mp3
exit

Hello Folks,


Thank You for the Welcome.
Here is another variant I use/written.

#!/bin/bash
cd /home/music/unprocessed/
normalize-audio --batch *.mp3
exit

#!/bin/bash
cd /home/music/unprocessed/
normalize-audio --amplitude=.9 *.mp3
exit
