I have been putting a lot of MP3 tracks onto USB drives so that I can play music in the car without having to continually change discs. However, I have yet to find a way to 'normalise' the tracks in one go, and as a result have to keep playing with the volume control. I have software (MP3 Audio Editor) which will 'normalise' track by track but cannot find a way to make it take on the whole drive folder. Any suggestions would be welcome, even if it involves using other software.
Thanks

I use MP3Gain. It allows normalisation per track or per album/folder. I'm sure there are plenty of others including many players. I think VLC player is one of those. Normalising a set of tunes is a bit hit and miss because it depends to an extent on the music format. The algorithims work quite well but none are perfect.

Hi Nanobyte, Downloaded and ran the program. Seems to be just what I was looking for. Thank you very much - especially as the program was at my favorite price - Free!
