I'm sure this is probably old for most, but I came across a nifty tool called MP3Gain. This utility can scan your mp3 files and display their volume levels, as well as quickly set them to whatever dB levels you choose. I didn't think much of it until you listen to a set of tracks with different levels and then when they have the same levels. Simply wonderful!

Anyone use it or something similar before? What are your dB levels of choice? I went with 90 dB myself...

As far as audio ripping. Normalizing is a major no no. Simply because it depletes the sound quality. As for that reason; I never normalize my music. If it is ripped right, you do not need to normalize it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
