I am using Nero version 6 to burn audio cds from .wav files on my hard drive. Before burning, I normalize all tracks by clicking on each track and going to the audio properties screen and then clicking on the filters tab. I then check the normalize box. The settings for normizing are: Method - RMS and Percent 20. After burning a cd with tracks having those normalize settings and then playing the cd, I have consistently found that for high notes that are loud, there seems to be clipping - that is, the tracks sound very tinny and unclear at the high end when compared to playing the original file on my hard drive or the original cd. I think this is called clipping but I am not sure.
- How can I normalize the tracks and still prevent the high and loud parts of burned tracks from sounding tinny compared to the original tracks?
I tried varying the “Percent” setting in the normalize screen to much higher and much lower levels before burning tracks, but it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the quality or loudness of the tracks. I read the brief description for that percent setting in the Nero program, but I still don’t understand it.
- What is that percent setting supposed to do?
