Setting the output volume on tracks

I am using 2.1.2 with Linux mint

I have 900 or so songs from different sources that play off of a USB stick in the car. The problem is some of them are really loud and some are very soft. I am constantly changing the volume on the radio. I have been editing them as best I can with the adjust it with the slider to the left of the track, I can also double click to set a value. The problem is that this value is reliant on the selected track and not the same on all tracks imported. I wish to be able to set all tracks imported to the same volume output. Is this possible.

Thank You in advance, Dan

See ReplayGain plugin.

OK thank you, just what I was looking for, but I spent an hour looking for the download and cannot find it. I found all the information on how to use it and how to download it but I cannot find the file to download. Maybe it is just too early in the morning and I only had one cup of Java. I found the page with all the Nyquist downloads and it was not there.


It’s the link in giant letters (at the bottom of the post) that says “NEW VERSION” ReplayGain plug-in

OK I found it but it will not let me copy it to the plug-in folder. I am logged in as normal with my password.

You do not have the permissions necessary to save the file. Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again.

Try the “per user” installation as described here:

OK I have it working now Thank You. I am hoping to find a way to put it on the bar so I do not have to go to the menu each time.

Thanks for taking the time to help

You can’t do that, but you can create a keyboard shortcut. See: Shortcuts Preferences - Audacity Manual

Thanks again

It may be possible to automatically batch-process your songs using Audacity’s new “Macro” feature …

I’ve not tried that myself though.

Update: I just tried macro in Audacity 2.3.0 , it is possible to batch-process all the files in a folder/directory.
900 is going to take some time though, probably several days on one computer.
