Levelator - specialized audio normalizer

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

install, copy and uninstall

I have just extracted the files from the installer using Uniextract and copied the all the files in the {apps} directory to the destination directory and that seems to be good enough. There seems to be no configuration, no ini files and no entries in the registry. I guess you could also install, copy the program directory to your portable device and uninstall.

A tad on the freaking huge side, but looks neat. Will give this a whirl sometime this week.

Thanks krungthep for verifying its portability.

Tested the app... and wasn't really pleased with the results.
I guess if you don't have Sound Forge, it's okay...
is it stealth? ;)

Try HeadAC3he instead Mr. freakazoid
Much smaller & does not need .wav input.

Levelator - specialized audio normalizer

TP109 pointed me to this from a related thread.

Handles batch operations, and sounds great. The only negative was the presence of a certain low volume moment that would happen after a few moments of silence. This happened with spoken word files I worked on where the volume was clear, sharp, and specific until a pause between speaking. The next word would sound like someone backed away from the microphone for a moment and then leaned in.

This is pretty nitpicky -- it otherwise sounds very good.

Site: http://www.jakeludington.com/downloads/ ... mizer.html (was http://forum.conversationsnetwork.org but that's down now)

Status: Portable - writes no settings
Stealth: Untested

Edit: the program was developed by a group that specifically worked with spoken-word recordings a lot so, again, for the majority of users this is going to be just fine.

According to my tests, it does use the Windows cache in the registry, although I don't think that counts against it being stealth. Anyway, here is the database entry. Vote and/or edit as necessary!

Does it make sense to add a new entry to the database that will never get updated, since the webpage itself (http://www.conversationsnetwork.org/) redirects to the Internet Archive? Or does this here forum topic suffice?

I think I can guess your answer, TP109, but would like to hear from other members... :|

Yeah I'm cool with adding it. The program itself is exceedingly simple to use and something that we could point non-technical users to for effective voice normalization. Good audio edit tools seem to live a long, long time (can't tell you how many times I used CoolEdit96 before finding out about Audacity and then Wavosaur).

Anyway ... voted.
