    Do you have some links of software program that can be used to monitor the sound output of music. I have used iTune program for my music collections, and there are times that some music like from CD's and then from mp3 download don't sound the same. I mean, after importing, some sounds high and some the volume is low. I can adjust the individual music volume in each music but what I need is to adjust them "perfectly", and I couldn't rely solely on my ear that's why I need something to "see" to level them all perfectly the same so that when I burn them into CD-R all the sounds in the cd will sounds leveled. :cautious: :rolleyes:

    if you are looking for a program that will make all the music the same volume you can use mp3gain, or audacity. the feature is called normalise, or normalize.

    http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/ i can't remember if it only works with mp3s
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    they are probably quite processor intensive

    To remedy this while you are listening to the music, choose Edit > Preferances > Playback, & put a check mark next to Sound Check.

    Choose the Advanced tab, under Burning, put a check mark next to Sound Check there as well.
