Hello. I love beaTunes but I had a question. Let's say I purchase a song from iTunes using my iPhone and then sync my iPhone so that the song is now in my desktop iTunes library. If I use beaTunes to perform audio normalization on the song and then re-sync my iPhone with my desktop iTunes library, will that audio normalization now be present on the song on my iPhone? Thanks!

    beaTunes does not normalize your audio. It merely sets a tag in your file that some players know to identify and honor.

    Whether Apple syncs that tag is actually a question for Apple. My guess is, they don't.
