Hello. I've been trying to use Beatunes to adjust the ItunNorm values of my iTunes library and it doesn't seem to be working. Under "Analysis Options", I have Audio Normalization, Replace Existing Replay Gain, and Track Replay Gain selected. I run the analysis and it seems to work but when I check the song in iTunes in Song Info / File, the volume is 0.0 for all songs. I think I'm doing something wrong here. Please help me regarding (1) How to replace the ItunNORM values with ReplayGain values for the songs in my iTunes library and (2) How to confirm that this has been properly done. Thanks!

    Hey Joseph,

    Three questions:

    1. Do you use a folder-based or an iTunes-based library (in beaTunes)?
    2. Do you have "embed non-iTunes fields" turned on (beaTunes General Prefs)? It needs to be on.
    3. In iTunes do you have SoundCheck on?

    Thanks Hendrick. I used an iTunes-based library. I did NOT have "embed non-iTunes fields" turned on but I have since checked that. I have soundcheck turned on.

    Then the analysis and writing of the iTunNorm tag should work as advertised!

    Great I really appreciate it! Where can I look in Song Info on iTunes to confirm that the iTunNorm tag has been edited?

    In iTunes: Get Info -> "File" Tab -> Volume
