Hello all.


I have been pestered by all my MP3s being recorded at different levels and intensities. 


I use Roxio VHS to DVD which has the Roxio "Sound Editor' included for transfering my 45 RPM singles and 33 1/3 vynil LPs to my computer.


My collection consists of every conceivable genres under the sun, so there are varying degrees of frequncies in all my finished MP3s one from the other.


The end result, is music that is below 60% and others that are over 100%, under modulated audio to over modulated audio.


Now for the most part, I have re-edited some in Roxio by either raising the volume bar or lowering it, then saving the file with the lowered or increased volume.


With my current 1434 MP3s, this is a rather tedious task.


I have tried MP3Gain software and with its default setting of 98.3 and tried converting all 1434 files to where their track gain was all at 0.









I did not like the results because it made all the songs sound as if their low frequencies (base) were stripped out of the songs. I am not exactly sure 100%, what they lacked, but I could tell something was missing from the converted ones versus the untouched ones. 


I plan on doing more research on MP3Gain software and what settings are best when a music library consists of various genres of music.


I was just curious what the rest of you use for software and what your opinions are.

Hi Bruce :)


Not sure if this would help you as both programs being mentioned I'm not familiar with... sorry. Been using this for quite some time on different format conversions with simple UI.  Have to use the Custom install and uncheck box option to avoid this bloatwares.
