That is essentially what the slider does.Whistler wrote:Would it be possible to have a slider to adjust the reference level?
You can look at it two ways (at least), but it's still doing the same thing:
1) The audio is Normalized to a "standard loudness", then the "Adjust Normalized Output" control amplifies the output up or down.
2) The slider control adjusts the reference level.
When at zero the reference level is (roughly) the same as the ReplayGain standard.
If the slider is increased to +5 then the reference level is 5 dB higher than the ReplayGain standard.
If the slider is lowered to -5 then the reference level is 5 dB lower than the ReplayGain standard.
Probably the easiest way to achieve a target level is to apply the effect to each track (one track at a time) with the slider set to zero (default).Whistler wrote:The reason I’m so interested in such an option is that it would simplify the process of achieving a certain target level.
It's likely that after doing this, all of your tracks will be a bit quiet.
The important thing is that they will all be quiet by about the same amount.
If we then amplify all of the tracks by the same amount, then they will still sound about the same loudness as each other.
So what we can do is to select all of the track and apply the Amplify effect with the target level set to the required peak level (dBFS).
I would recommend using 0 dB as the target level. This means that one track will just touch 0 dB at its highest peak and all other tracks will be a bit below 0 dB, but all of the tracks should sound about the same loudness (which is what we want).
