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.

Help, anybody?

If you upgrade Audacity to the current version (Audacity 2.4.2 https://www.audacityteam.org/download/), the "Loudness Normalization" effect is built-in.

Does this work on Audacity 2.4.2? Because I can't seem to get it to work. All it's doing is measuring the RMS. There are no options for altering anything.

The current version of Audacity is 3.0.2 (available via the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/
It has a built-in effect that can do either "Loudness Normalization" or "RMS Normalize". See here for details: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/lou ... ation.html
