Have you ever had to adjust the volume of your speakers after a song change because the next one was too loud or too quiet? Use MP3Gain to get a more consistent audio level across all the songs in your MP3 Library. This is a powerful tool to use when preparing your music library for upload to your Live365 station.
MP3Gain is free open-source software that automatically adjusts MP3's so that they all have the same volume. This creates a better overall listening experience. MP3Gain does some statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. The change (normalization) that MP3Gain makes is completely lossless.
We highly recommend that you have make a full backup of your MP3 library before working with or manipulating your files. This way, you can revert back to your original versions of tracks if you are unhappy with the results. Live365 accepts no liability or responsibility for any unintended outcomes of using this third-party, unaffiliated software. Please maintain regular backups of your master MP3 files.
There is no audio quality lost in the process because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, with out decoding and re-encoding it.
Here is a guide on how to get your tracks normalized quickly with MP3Gain
- Download a copy of MP3Gain here. The software is currently only available for Windows OS.
- Make a backup of your music library before starting the process.
- The default target volume setting of 89.0 dB is great to prevent your audio from clipping. Some users may find this too low so you can adjust it.
Keep in mind you want all your songs to be normalized to the same level without clipping.
- Drag and drop the folder containing the MP3s you want to normalize into MP3Gain.
- Click the Track Analysis button. This will analyze the MP3 files and let you know the volume and if the audio file is clipping.
- Click Track Gain to adjust the MP3 files to the Target “Normal” Volume.
MP3Gain will give your audio library consistent levels so your listeners won’t need to touch the volume as songs change. This will create a better overall listening experience.
