  Description     : Levelling LADSPA plugin and command-line audio filter

VLevel keeps your music from making you jump out of your seat, and it
keeps you from having to fiddle with the volume constantly. It's
different from other dynamic compressors because it looks ahead. You
can think of VLevel as someone who knows your music by heart, and
turns the volume up during quiet passages, but smoothly turns it back
down when he knows a loud part is coming. It's great for making CDs
to listen to in your car, or to play background music on your

VLevel is currently a LADSPA plugin and a command-line filter. You can
use it with many Linux audio programs including XMMS, GStreamer,
GLAME, GDAM, and others, and you can use it in shell scripts to level
your music before burning a CD.

The commandline filter is also useful for levelling podcasts before
(encoding and) publishing.


Background about why I want to package or better already have packaged

It's old, but has been proven very useful, especially since the Auphonic
went commercial ("freemium").

We use it primarily for our podcasts. And since I've packaged it for our
own use anyways, I can also contribute it to Debian officially, too.

There also seems a continuation of the project at
https://github.com/radiocicletta/vlevel -- but no new release yet.
