Hi all, new to the forums, new to volume leveling of WAV files. I've been using mp3Gain for a few years, and it's perfect for a total non-professional in audio editing. I've always left the options set to defaults, and that includes a target volume of 89.0 db's, so that all tracks in all folders/albums are set to the same volume. Now I'm trying to do the same thing with WAV files, and so far, the only program I have found that resembles mp3gain is wavegain, using the frontend that came zipped with it. My problem is that I can't figure out how to have it set volume at a specific db level (89.0) as was doable with mp3gain. I would like to have all WAV & mp3 volumes set to the same level since some playlists would contain a mix of those two formats. The online help for wavegain is for the command mode only, and I don't want to get into that if I can avoid it. After an hour or so of Googling for an answer, I've come up empty handed. Makes me wonder if I'm approaching this the right way.

Thanks for any replies.

What you are after is, most probably, RadioGain.

RadioGain targets each file to the 89dB setting (or a different value, if extra gain is enabled)
AlbumGain targets the album to 89dB and then applies the resulting gain to all waves, probably ending in different targets for each file (album meaning the group of files you select). RadioGain wouldn't be adequate for a gapless album, for example.
