ripping quiet CDs
I just set up abcde/cdparanoia/lame to rip some CDs, the problem is that some
of them turn out with very low volume.
what can I do about this?
I certainly don't want to use normalize: I want to increase the volume
uniformly across a whole cd, not just the quiet parts.
Are there any mp3 editing tools that would let me change frame headers
(global_gain?) or would this cause clipping when I play them? This is what
happened when I cranked up the --scale option for lame.
or is this approach fundamentally wrong.
I am using:
cdparanoia III release 9.8 (March 23, 2001)
LAME version 3.87 (beta 1, Jun 8 2001)
