Does anybody know of a music leveler that works on a flash drive? The ones I've found seem to work on the PC, they don't seem like they would help me with my car stereo. The music on my USB drive, in the car, goes up and down. I'm constantly adjusting the volume, :ranting:  I'd like to find something that would level the volume on all the songs so I won't have to keep turning my stereo volume up and down.

Thanks

Would it not be simple enough to copy all music from the flash drive to hard drive...then level?  I don't bother with leveling but that's how I would do it, since all my music resides on my hard drive in a Music partition and I take excerpts and apply those to CD/mp3 players.

 

I keep the archived music on my hard drive.

After ripping to MP3 format, I have been using MP3Gain to volume level.  The changes it applies to MP3 files can be undone as they do not involve re-encoding of the music content in the file, just the addition of header information.

 

It can be used to process files on any media that allows the individual files to be rewritten.

 

That being said, what hamluis describes as far as storage is also precisely what I do.  All of my music ripping takes place initially on my PC and I immediately apply MP3Gain to all files I've just ripped before I move them to their permanent home in my music library.  This makes it very easy to grab random mixes of albums, songs, etc., out of my library on to any portable media of my choosing and having the knowledge that all material has been volume leveled such that I don't have to constantly be fiddling with the volume controls as the songs change.

Well Duh! I never thought of that! It's too easy and I always seem to try and find the hard way... Thanks, I'll give that a shot. :blush:
