How to even out volume of FLAC & WAV music files

I’m putting together a CD-R of my favorite tracks of holiday music from my CD collection (and even one of my scratchy old 45 RPM recordings an acquaintance transferred to a FLAC file for me).

I’m concerned that the volume of the different tracks varies greatly from track to track.

I seem to recall that last year when I was compiling a CD that someone told me about a program that would even out the volume levels of the tracks. But my memory is so bad that I can’t remember what the program was.

I searched my old posts in this forum and it didn’t seem to turn up.

Can someone refresh my memory for me?

Do you mean foobar2000 but you have to add replay gain data
Never used it myself but have come across it on another forum…

Yes, there’s Replay Gain as suggested or WavGain…

With burning apps like burrrn for instance, you can make ReplayGain adjustments when burning to disc…

Or, if you’re making the CD compilation in Nero, you can have Nero normalize as it burns.

Hey! I think that was what I used last year; Nero!

Thanks for jogging my memory, olyteddy!

Thanks, tOnee1, for those links.

You’ve provided me with lots of helpful and interesting info, that I think I can put to good use.
