RMS Normalize seems to undo everything else

Aaaaaand. We’re done.

I read the cereal box. “Part of a balanced, healthy breakfast. Make Sugar Flakes a part of your…”

It should sound exactly like you. And it conforms.

I used the three Audiobook mastering tools I wrote about in this post.

I have a short form here somewhere. You need to download RMS Normalize if you don’t already have it.

============
Select the whole track by clicking just right of the up arrow.

Effect > Equalization: Low rolloff for speech, Length about 5000 > OK.

Effect > RMS Normalize: -20dB > OK.

Effect > Limiter: Soft Limit, 0, 0, -3.5dB 10ms, No > OK.

That’s it. You should have seen the time line move up and down a bit while the tools were working. Run ACX Check on that.

Remember Noise will not pass without about a second of Room Tone in there.
