Fixing backing track volume problems

Martin contacted me with this common problem many singers face when they buy backing tracks from all different companies…

Hi Kenny

Great emails – thanks. Several of my Sinatra backing tracks (bought from various different backing track companies) are at different volume levels to others.

Do you know how I can get them all at the same volume level so I don’t have to keep remembering to adjust the volume between each song?



Hi Martin

The process of making all the tracks the same level is called “normalizing”.

Audacity can do it….open the audio file in Audacity and then boost it’s volume then save it as a new file.

Also there are lots of other programs (some are free, some not) which can also normalize files.
