I had to reinstall Audacity and I now have an issue with Normalizing. I use the program to create music CD’s. When I entered a song it would automatically check for DC offset and Normalize the track. Now I have to do each song manually.
Can anyone guide me as to how to get my old setting back?

I don’t think there’s a way to apply an effect automatically when you open a file with Audacity… You can write a [u]macro[/u] to do things automatically but I’m not sure if that would help you. (I’ve never used macros.)

You can use Audacity to record music and edit files in preparation for making a CD but Audacity doesn’t burn CDs.
And… Normalization doesn’t necessarily match the perceived volume so it’s not always the best procedure. There are tools for measuring/matching perceived volume but for a handful of tracks on a CD it’s usually done by-ear. Typically you’d normalize all of the tracks individually, then if they don’t sound equally-loud choose the quietest-sounding one as your reference and adjust the others down to match (by ear).
