Check out mp3Trim.
This tool can normalize mp3 files without any loss in quality.

Normalization, use mp3DirectCut

Tried all the above and like best mp3DirectCut, a free product you can get at http://www.rz.uni-frankfurt.de/~pesch/#mp3dc.

No fees and no decodeing and re-encoding.

AdaptX (plugin for WinAMP) and a DirectX compressor such as the one included Sony ACID, performs it on the fly.

You can never improve the quality of sound without the master copy. In this case the CD it was pressed onto by the music recording company.

Same goes for video.

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

OP: Why not MP3 Gain? I've been using it for years now, and like it fine. I use it to normalize whole CDs worth of MP3s to play on my car deck. I also use the normalizer in MP3 DirectCut or TotalRecorder or Audacity or CDex or whatever other tool I happen to be using at the time. 'Normalizing' is pretty straight forward as it's simply adding a constant value to the samples that make up the file.

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

Is there a universal tool for all audio files and not just MP3?
I've been using Ashampoo Music Studio to normalize but I'm not sure whether it just normalizes or recodes the files.

Audacity works with a lot of formats, but has to re-encode most of them.

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

I´ve been going nuts trying to normalize WAV files made for pronunciation practice by various teachers at school...audio levels all over the place...horrendous results when burned to disc (from very quiet by one dude, to super loud by the next = scary for the student)
Just tracked down this very simple normalizer...ran a quick test...seems to do the trick very nicely...

Check it out http://members.home.nl/w.speek/wavegain.htm

Actually, the Bedini CD Ultra Clarifier improves the quality of even new CDs. It isn't permanent and it would seem like voodoo, but take my word (and many experts) for it, it does work.

You obviously have never heard it but I have because I own one. Maybe you should read some reviews:

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

Just b/c you own one doesn't make it a fact..There have been many, many debunked so-called magic devices, and this one is right up there with the'best' of the other snake-oil favorites..
But hey who am I to say, you can't actually hear a difference..
And come on, you don't really believe everything you read, do you?..
Now I'm off to the green-marker sale at wally world..Wouldn't want any data falling off the edge of my discs..
G-day!..

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

It amazes me how many so-called "audiophiles" will spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on audio accessories like interconnects and high-grade speaker wire and claim to hear a difference. The Ultra Clarifier is at least a hundred times more noticeable than these, yet you will mock it without ever trying it yourself. The funny thing is, people will spend exorbitant amounts on wires from stereo shops and not realize that all that fine demo equipment in the stores is operating on the cheapest Radio Shack RCA cables and zip cord speaker wire. The only exceptions are where the customer might see the cable. And as far as debunking goes, nobody has debunked Bedini's invention because they can't. Bedini is an audio genius. He has produced surround sound systems from only two front speakers and even stereo sound from a SINGLE speaker and he did that like 20 years ago.

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

It is apparent to me that not many people here are in the professional audio field and I guess that's a good thing for the world. Reminds me of people in the 15th Century that scoffed Columbus and the like for wanting to sail around the world because they knew for a fact that the earth was flat and anyone sailing too far would fall off the edge.

Oh yeah, the moon landing was faked too.

I guess, unless you're a professional, you'll never know what great sound is, eh!..
Have fun with your CD re-winder..

Re: Best MP3 Normalizer

OKAY now guys...This thread has been derailed far enough. 'the Bedini CD Ultra Clarifier' has little to do with the topic, but I allowed it because it suggests a possible audible improvement. Apparently Emplehod truly believes in the product. To each his own, I say. However, if this thread degrades further I will start cleaning it up. OKAY? BTW nice lecture t0nee1. I watched it all and now understand better the 'psycho acoustic' field.

Being as others here can insult me without having an opportunity to defend myself, as my post is deleted, then I request that you remove my account completely from these forums. I will be more particular in the future and not post in forums where people are so close-minded.
