I'm not sure how to do it on Windows.

If the files are stereo, they may handle RMS measurement differently from Audacity.
Do you see the effect in the Audacity Effects menu? Are you able to use the effect manually (not in a Macro)?

Ah, got it. So once you have the Root Mean Square, do you reverse the math to come up with a scaling factor, multiply all the samples by that scaling factor?1) Run through the samples
2) square all of them
3) divide by the number of samples (to get the "mean square")
4) take the square root (to get the "Root Mean Square")
Then use that value to normalize.
It's pretty easy really. Let's put in some arbitrary numbers to see how it works.ChasEnglish wrote: ↑Mon Nov 25, 2019 8:42 pmSo once you have the Root Mean Square, do you reverse the math to come up with a scaling factor, multiply all the samples by that scaling factor?
