I am going to be performing at a nursing home and would like all of the karaoke tracks I use to be close to the same volume, with not much variance either between the tracks or within the same track, so that most everyone can hear the music at all times and I don’t have to constantly adjust the volume. What is the best way to do this?
So far, I have seen recommendations to
- Normalize, and remove DC offset
- Use the “compressor” tool. In compressor, I brought the threshold all the way down and made the ratio 10:1. That seemed to make the song relatively the same volume throughout which is what I wanted. However, I don’t know how to measure the volume of multiple songs to each other. Since they all start out at different levels, will they all have different decibel levels, or did something I tried in there make them all the same?
I know nothing about decibels or the audio world.
Tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
