Raising Audio Even More

Postby mikepeezy » Tue Oct 08, 2013 2:23 pm

I'm working on a project who's original audio files are unusually low. Even after raising the audio levels via properties, to the highest possible settings (150), I find that they are still too low compared.

Does anyone have any tricks or ideas for raising the audio even more?

Maybe you can increase the volume on the source file prior to adding to your project using another tool, depending on the source file format.

In the case it's a mp3 file, you can use lame with the --scale switch

Code: Select all
lame --scale 2 original_file.mp3 new_file_volume_x2.mp3

Other formats i think that you can use ffmpeg:

Code: Select all
ffmpeg -i <original_file> -vol 512 -acodec <audio_codec> <new_file_volume_x2>

I hope you find this information handy for your purposes.
