This explains why I found pistachio shells in my amplifier.
Roon has volume leveling and works superb
Aussie audio gear reviewer Johnny Darko has a great interview with a German mastering engineer about the problems with leveling in the mastering process. Artists typically prefer the original mix, but for streaming (e.g., Spotify) or to be appreciated or even played in electronic music dance halls, i.e., commercial reasons, leveling if not also higher overall volume is needed. While there are some mastering tricks in doing that, it typically undermines the integrity of the artistic effort.
ROON ALSO ALLOWS tabs in green I set the tab for volume also for soft or hard filtering and for upsampling or non upsampling
Hey Paul...I think that would also be a great feature on the new upcoming transport...no nuts about it!!! 8)
Paul, For the next podcast, maybe you could stand in front of a blackboard and scratch your fingernails on it
over and over? The lip smacking of the pistachios just wasn't quite annoying enough on this one...
Rule #1 in radio-- don't eat while broadcasting, podcasting, etc unless you're trying to make your listeners run for the hills.
Otherwise, another great "Ask Paul"! 🙂
jRiver Media Player is as good as it gets for handling an audio collection.
It has a function “Leveling” which does exactly what this post is requesting.
It runs R128 Replay Gain standard.
Google “jRiver leveling”
Apple's iTunes and every iPod ever has had this "Sound Check" feature. In iTunes, it's in the Playback section of iTunes preferences. On an iPod, it's in the Playback section of its Settings.
