Not as easy as you think! Greetings esteemed audio enthusiasts. I require your help!

I don't want to just normalize a bunch of tracks to 0dB - I want to permanently amplify an entire album by the same amount, so the highest peak of that album is 0db, yet ambient filler tracks and such are amplified to the same level so it all melds together smoothly.

Anyone know a simple and easy way to do this?

You want loumdness equalization, not peak normalization. They are not the same thing.

You want to use ReplayGain or R128 in album gain mode. Ignore what you've been told about peak levels.

I recommend using foobar2000 to accomplish this. You'll either want to use it as your player and have it manage playback level from tags or you'll want to use it to scale albums prior to encoding to the destination format of your choice.

Your eyes cannot hear.
