    Volume leveling?

    Hi All,
    Wondering if anyone here uses this feature in their media player? I'm naive about how it works, how it effects quality, if it permanently alters the files, etc. Any and all input is appreciated. I use Windows Media Player and Streetdeck.

    TIA,
    Per

    I think that winamp supports this without any plug-ins. Its under Winamp preferences-General Preferences-Playback-and then check replay gain. IN the drop menu next to the box, there's an option for normalizing. I tired using it and it works pretty good but it only works after you've already played the track fully. It's also not permanent.

    thanks...i knew it existed (does so in WMP also). good to know it's not permanent, thanks.

    questions still remain: does it alter the quality of any of the files? i know it normalizes, but i have no idea what the impact is or is not on the resulting sound quality for something that was either 'brought up' in volume or 'brought down'. anyone?

    Well....... I actually can't hear much of a difference in sound quality from my music. Don't know about other people's experiences though.

    It shouldn't affect the quality, just the volume. Unless it's somehow 'brightening' or 'softening' the sound, which would be like an EQ adjustment.
