    MP3Gain? ?

    Any1 ever used this or anything similar on their in car collection ??

    I'm tempted but worried that normalising.. if i go for a complete non-clipping collection it will get very quiet.. or if i go for an ok level loads of it will clip.

    What db settings do you guys use if you have used it and did it make your collection in your car much nicer to have or was it just annoying and best left alone.

    Thanks guys.

    yeah ive done alll my mp3's with this prog

    its the best normalized i have found
    the best thing is that all the other have to re encode the mp3 at a new level which takes for ever.. this program just some how adds a level code to the mp3 and its quick. and if u dont like the level u can just get rid of it and put it back to normal..

    i use 95Db.. the defult 89db is way to low.
    most mp3's i get are around 95 anyways

    and another good thing is it has album gain. so it will scan the full album then adjust the mp3s acordingly.. leaving the loud ones louder and the quiet songs quieter..

    good luck

    Yeah mp3gain works great. I leave it at 89dB and just turn the wave out volume up.

    I use mp3 gain and it's a really great program. I have mine all set at 89 as well, but it seems that CDs that I have on my hard drive are recorded higher. Makes for quite a startle when going from one to the other. I might just up all my mp3s to 95.

    Is there a similar program to decrease WMA files?

    This is an excellent program, and when combined with mp3trim works wonders. I left it at the default 89db and ran my 300 ripped cds through it. Several hours later (I left it overnight) I had 300 cds that when played randomly didn't spike the volume. If you read the process on how they "normalize" songs (I use quotes becuase normalizing is bad, and its not what mp3gain does) its really interesting, and completely loss-less.

    Did you rip your CDs to mp3 format or WMA?

    Do you find 89 quiet?

    so if i have say a quiet mp3 and a loud one, and set them to 89...would it make the loudness of the quiet one and loud one the same? or would it make the quiet one louder and the loud super loud? with the mp3gain program that is...
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...
