I need to even out various vol levels in multiple tracks. Everything I see involves using ReplayGain…I don’t find it in my version here. WHere is it? Or what else can I do?
The “real” ReplayGain is built into some media players (for example “Foobar2000” https://www.foobar2000.org/)
Media players from Apple (such as iTunes and iPads) have a similar feature called “Sound Check”.
Some years ago I wrote a kind of “normalizing” plug-in that uses the ReplayGain algorithm so that it can normalize to a specified “loudness”. That plug-in is available here: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/replaygain/22589/1
This is a “Nyquist plug-in”. Installation instructions for Windows are here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installing_effect_generator_and_analyzer_plug_ins_on_windows.html#nyquist_install
I see the ‘normalize’ function…will need to play with that some. I tried it earlier without success…maybe doing something wrong here…?
Just make sure you are using the Normalize option of the ReplayGain plug-in. The regular Normalize effect is peak-amplitude normalization which does not work well for loudness matching.
OK…since I do not see Replay Gain showing up anywhere…looked in the Effects drop down tab…then will I need to download this plugin first?
