you know how sometimes your on a call, or watching a movie
one moment there is dialog and you have to turn the volume up,
just to have a loud noise or action scene (figuratively) blow up your speakers.
I want to be able to control the upper and lower thresholds of volume on my machines.
I.E. set the volume to a specific db level and then be able to say
"if the sound (lets call it X) gets louder than Y db, then playback at Y db"
It would be nice to be able to normalize all audio to range between set lower and upper thresholds, but an upper limit would be much better than now.
I realize that db may not be the appropriate unit here, I'm not a sound guy so I'm just putting up something to represent a quantifiable measurement of audio volume.
any points in the right direction would be appreciated. if there is a software product on the market that can do this in real-time I would love to know...
