    hi all, looking for a program for windows xp that goes through your mp3 folder and normalizes the volume to be equal for recording, similar to what itunes does for mac. any suggestions?

    Do a Google search for MP3Gain--it works quite nice for a free program.

    Or do a search here, and you'll find someone asked the same question a few days ago.

    And I said it before, and will say it again- the tracks are likely already "normalized" (just makes the peak levels even)-- what you want is a complete altering of dynamics of the music.

    ok i've gone over the faq and thread.the problem i believe is the differing qualities of the mp3 rips. which is slightly annoying at home, but once cranked through headphones on my minidisc player it's quite the jolt when one song is so much louder than the other.
    i will look into mp3gain.
    sorry to not have done a search first, i'm scrambling around here trying to get everything organized before i leave for a trip.
