Anybody with a ruler, an adding machine and strong coffee can figure out RMS.
How do you intentionally distort a voice wave so the peaks never exceed a set value but without changing overall loudness (RMS) significantly—and do it so nobody can hear the change or tell what you did?
There was an early peak processor called “Leveller.” It was OK, but it used brute force techniques that weren’t always satisfactory. It’s still available in the tool kit under Effects > Distortion.
However I cannot for the life of me find where I can actually GET this Nyquist Plug-In Installer that is repeatedly mentioned. Does anybody have a link?
I tried to do it manually per the instructions, but when I go to Library/Application Support I don’t see Audacity listed…is there somewhere else it could be hiding? I tried searching and clicking through everything…
I am on latest Mac Catalina 10.15.3 and Audacity 2.3.2.
This may seem like a silly question, but I feel like I’m using this all wrong. I use RMS normalize to get to -20 and ACX Check tells me I’m above the -3.0 limit. I fix the limit, but now I’m under the RMS -20. I just keep going back and forth. Can anyone please assist? Thank you.
I am having a very difficult time getting my RMS levels to pass the ACX requirements. Is there someone out there who I can hire to help me fix this problem by walking me through it in a 1-on-1 Zoom session? If so, would you please email me at [personal information removed]?
The helpers on this forum are volunteers. Due to the large amount of people asking for help, and the few number of people providing help, we are unable to offer personal telephone, email, zoom, home visits,…
Koz, I set all the settings as you described above and everything worked! It passed ACX Check! I wish I knew better what those settings did to fix my recording, but it worked and I’m thrilled. Thank you!
Sorry to bring up the issue again: I am trying to RMS normalize a group of music pieces (formats: WAV or MP3 or m4a), but fail. When I click “normalize” I get the control of peak amplitude only, not RMS, nor "perceived loudness.
I have already downloaded the rms-normalize.ny program suggested by Steve, and stored it in the plug-ins folder of audacity, but I cannot see any change in the screens and options I get from Audacity.
