When I try to access help,I'm getting "Help viewer cannot open this content". I want to learn more on how to normalize my music with BeaTunes. I was using iVolume. iVolume is more straight forward. Bing all music to one level, then increase the db. How do I do that with BeaTunes?

1. If you experienced a crash or other abnormal behavior, please attach the log file 'beaTunes-logs-2019-11-09-105113.zip' by dragging it from your desktop onto the 'Attach File' button below.

    beaTunes can analyze your music using different algorithms and target levels. The result is written as ReplayGain tag and iTunNORM tag to the files.

    Bing all music to one level, then increase the db. How do I do that with BeaTunes?

    beaTunes never changes the actual audio. Perhaps this is a misunderstanding?
    Can you please describe in more detail what you need?

    That's odd. Perhaps a reboot solves this one, but I am just guessing.

    This is what I have done:

    Used iVolume to update my iTunNORM Tag using iVolume but WANT to use BeaTunes.

    1.

    2.

    In BeaTunes.

    How should I do the same with BeaTunes?

    In the end I want to use BeaTunes for everything. I even promote BeaTunes in all my Facebook Music and Radio Groups. You have the BEST Tech Support. Like this email now, we are talking through an issue.

    I'm not familiar with how iVolume works exactly.

    If you want to compute Track ReplayGain with beaTunes,

    1. Make sure that Music/iTunes has SoundCheck enabled.
    2. In the beaTunes general preferences, make sure that "Embed non-iTunes/Music fields" and "Force overwriting" are both on.
    3. Select the songs you want to analyze
    4. Click on the Analyze button or choose Analyze form the File menu
    5. In the Analysis Option dialog, select the Audio Normalization task and make sure Track Replay Gain is checked.
    6. If you are not interested in Album Replay Gain, make sure to turn it off. It takes a lot of computation power.
    7. I believe iVolume only supports ReplayGain 1, so you should choose ReplayGain 1 as algorithm.
    8. Choose the desired target level. Looks like you want 90dB.
    9. beaTunes does not support an additional adjustment —frankly, I don't quite understand what that's for. Can you explain?

    This procedure should ensure that the ReplayGain and iTunNORM tags are updated.

    Does that help?

    PS: I think I mentioned in another thread that updating to v5.2.1 may be a good idea, especially for ReplayGain tagging.

    Not sure what you mean. Autocorrection typo?
