I have used MP3 Gain for years and it is a great tool for normalizing one’s mp3 collection. However, the default value of 89dB for volume control is generally too low. I instead recommend and use 92 dB.

Another mp3 tool that I use “mp3DirectCut” is very useful in removing any imperfections in a track and also deleting part of the extended silence at the end of some tracks. Another use is copying and pasting other mp3 clips.

While at the above website, download the mp3 player “1By1.” I think that you will like the convenience and simplicity of the player.

you’re saying its lossless.

that means the gain is just a number in the file header you can overwrite?

you’re not re-encoding the mp3 file??
