Balancing Volume on Multiple Music Files

I am running Windows 10.  Years ago I had a program that allowed me to take a bunch of my songs and balance the volume so that when I made a playlist the volume on all the songs would be the same.  I don't remember the name of the program - and there are probably newer/better ones out there now.  Can you recommend a simple program to adjust volume on a group of music files?

Thanks,

Phil

That term is called Normalize.  And when you state Music Files are these files mp3s?  or something else?

Here's a couple of how to normalize links:

Of course there are a bagillion or bazillion apps out there that can 'normalize' your tracks.  Just make sure it is compatible with your audio.  Many are free.  So should be easy to find what works for you.

I haven't done this in a while as I usually don't have time to listen to music on the go etc.  

But when I did back 10-12 years ago, I used Nero Burning Rom to burn my CDs using the normalize feature, and to cut out the pauses/silence between tracks.  I am sure that the feature still exists in Nero but ...I really haven't kept up to date as I do not really use this feature these days.

Ahh Nero has Nero Wave Editor and is free.

Just another option out there for you.  But you'll have to find one that works best for you.

I think that some issues arise with Normalizing tracks.  That some programs if you don't adjust them or aren't adjustable, the tracks could be distorted at high volume etc.  So be wary of how the software does this.  You may/may not like some of the results if you don't adjust them yourself.

I appreciate that.  But the MP3Gain is working great.
