Great little program - equalize volume
I thought I'd tell you all about a great little program called wavegain / mp3gain. It equalizes the actual percived volume of wav or mp3 files. So now you can make compilation albums (using wavgain) or equalise the volume of tracks on your ipod (using mp3gain) and that old Stone Roses track won't sound quiet compared to Oasis! In fact if more people used this perhaps the record companies wouldn't bother boosting (i.e. compressing) the volume of the tracks so much...!?
Heres the links.
Perhaps someone who is very intelligent can explain what "dithering" is? And does this degrade sound quality?
