Itunes and Mp3’s are too quiet or too loud. How this can be fixed on Windows or Mac.  Normalizing audio songs.

Sometimes just sometimes when your listening to music, its like bang the next song so loud and previous song or song after is so darn quiet that your continually adjusting yyour volume level on your cellphone.  And after creating a playlist of your favorite songs you need to adjust the volume for each track. If these files are from various sources you may face the problem of ups and downs in the volume level. Fortunately this can be easily rectified using AVS Audio Editor. That noisy song can now be listened to at a decent level in operating systems such as Yosomite (apple), Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion, Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and Windows 10.

Step 1: Download and install AVS Audio Editor

Click here to download it. After the download is finished, run the AVSAudioEditor.exe file and follow the installation wizard instructions.

 Step 2: Open audio files

To open the audio files for editing click the Open button on the Home tab of the Ribbon Command Bar.

In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary audio files.


Step 3: Select the Normalize effect and set its properties

Switch to the Effects tab and click the Batch button. The Batch Processing window appears, allowing you to select the appropriate effect and indicate the files to be changed.

You will see a set of effects. You need to use only the Normalize effect. Delete other effects from the list selecting them with the mouse and using the Delete button.

If you don’t see the Normalize effect in the effects list, you can add it in a different way. Press the Effects >>button and select the Amplitude effects group, then the Normalize effect.

As soon as the Normalize effect is added in the list click it and press the Properties button to adjust the effect parameters. The opened Properties window allows you to define the parameters of the Normalize effect or select one of the available presets. When the necessary parameters are set, click the OK button.

Step 4: Make a list of files to be modified

Open the Processed Files tab of the Batch Processing window and make sure the list of audio tracks is correct. Check the boxes next to the files you want to normalize, the unchecked boxes mean that these files would be excluded from the batch process. To load additional files to the list, use the Open file(s) button.


Step 5: Save the resulting audio

Go back to the Home tab and click the black arrow under the Save button. If you don’t want to change your source files use the Save As option and save the resulting tracks with a different name, location and format. You can also use the Save All option to save all the changes to all the edited files.

For more detailed information on the saving options of AVS Audio Editor refer to the corresponding section of theOnline Help.

That’s it! Now you can enjoy listening to your favourite songs from the playlist without having to adjust the volume every time a new song starts.


To do normalizing on a Mac or OSX or Apple system follow the next steps :

One particular piece of software is called The Levelator.  Levelator adjusts the audio levels within your podcast or other audio file for variations from one speaker to the next, for example. It’s not a compressor, normalizer or limiter although it contains all three. It’s much more than those tools, and it’s much simpler to use. The UI is dirt-simple: Drag-and-drop any WAV or AIFF file onto The Leveler’s application window, and a few moments later you’ll find a new version which just sounds better.
