Lossless adjusting of loudness for MP3 and AAC files
Authored by: pairof9s on Apr 07, '05 01:55:08PM
This may be something completely different than what this hint proposes, but there is a song volume adjustment within iTunes. If you select a song and key Get Info (Cmd + i), you get a tabbed window containing information on that song. Under the "Options" tab is the Volume Adjustment bar which allows to increase or decrease the volume of the song relative to the player's volume output. I've been using this for a couple of years to help offset this various issue of songs being "too soft" or "too loud" in comparison to the previous tune.

Once again, this could be totally off-base to this hint, but it's a nice feature of iTunes for just such a problem.

This hint is actually using the iTunes volume adjustment, which is just a part of the ID3 tag. The magic is that it sets the volume for lots of tracks automatically, rather than you figuring out and setting them manually.
