Hi Steve,

I don't quite understand how to install these plug-ins (both the rms and acx check). I've downloaded them both in firefox, but neither show up in my attempts to add the plugins and enable them following Audacity's instructions.

At what point do you get stuck?

That was another problem the earlier tools had. They were aggressively input level dependent.

There is a current audiobook poster struggling with that now. I think they're trying to use a one-size fitz-all tool and it's not going well.

In RMS Normalize, the performance level is completely independent of the result. An amazing amount of complexity vanishes when you can do that.

RMS Normalize saves my bacon.

As an amateur reading my own audiobook, I start with -23 in post.

That automatically gets into the ACX range, with other settingsfrom there.

(Audiobook producers have to meet the standards of Audible. The check in Audacity is called ACX Check.)

It is a great sigh of relief (don't forget to edit out the sigh) when the file passes the test.
