normalize the volume of your MP3 files MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same, consistent volume. The program does not just do peak normalization, as many normalizers do, but instead attempts statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. The changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless, there is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and re-encoding. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Very good, but not portable 4 stars by bkamnetz772 Jul 03, 2017
MP3Gain is a very useful application; however, it is not portable. In fact, choosing the "portable" download link led me to lots of frustration. In order to work, the "portable" version needs a specific file, difficult to find from a reliable source, loaded on the host computer. As described on PortableApps, "This application requires admin rights to run on machines that do not yet have a particular OCX file registered. As this requires admin rights, the base app can not be considered portable and has been removed from our directory. Interested parties can still download the last release, version 1.2.5 but note that it is unsupported." It was many months before I learned that the problem that seemed unsolvable with MP3Gain was a problem that existed only in the portable version. In the meantime, I had wasted several hours. show Review details
Great product to lower mp3 volumes in batch 5 stars by gaiusgracchus33140 Jun 25, 2016
I needed something to lower the volume on a large number of Mp3 files. I had trouble getting Audacity to do it - it seemed to only do some of the files in a given directory or collection. Furthermore it only was able to do edits by converting to wav files first then back to mp3 (!!!!??) Then I tried the Sobolsoft volume program and it puffed the size of my mp3 files to almost twice the original! So the MP3Gain was the best option by far. Not only does it not increase file sizes, it will do the edits without having to do any conversions to intermediate wave files. At first I was confused about how to get it to lower the volume below the target of 75db. So that is the only pain - that you have to work around this limit. How I did it: Select 'Add folder' (note it will edit your files IN PLACE) Change "Target 'Normal' Value" to 75 (it won't go lower) Click 'Track Analysis' (will test all in folder - takes a while if lots of files - skip the following step if your volumes are already less than 75) Click 'Album Gain' (should be one of the icons on top - makes all in folder 75 Click 'Modify Gain', then 'Constant Gain' Set slider to lowest amount (on mine this was -12db) Click the down arrow by 'Track Gain' and make it be 'Constant Gain' Click 'Constant Gain' (changes all tracks to -12db) Keep doing the constant gain edit until you get volumes as low as you want. show Review details
