Everyone should turn on Sound Check in your iTunes players. Right now. Leave it there at least for a month and tell us whether you like it better.
- Turns on Sound Check begrudgingly –
Check out the comment from Katz where he states that iTunes accounts for album levels and normalizes by album.
Regarding album normalization. The poster is wrong, out of date. iTunes on the computer and on the i-device has quietly begun doing album normalization for several versions now. It’s not an advertised feature but I promise you, it is there. On the computer, it’s enabled in every mode. On the idevice it’s only in album playback mode. Playlist mode on the idevice is singles-normalized. As it probably should be for people on the go.
