Levelator adjusts the audio levels within your podcast or other audio file for variations from one speaker to the next, for example. It's not a compressor, normalizer or limiter although it contains all three. It's much more than those tools, and it's much simpler to use. The UI is dirt-simple: Drag-and-drop any WAV or AIFF file onto The Leveler's application window, and a few moments later you'll find a new version which just sounds better.

Have you ever recorded an interview in which you and your guest ended up at different volumes? How about a panel discussion where some people were close to microphones and others were not? more...

What's New

Version 2.1.1:
  • If an .mp4 file was submited it was reported as an .mp3 file. (Neither are accepted by The Levelator.)
  • Attempts to Levelate compressed files (ie, other than WAV, AIFF, etc.) are now detected and reported in a more friendly manner.
  • If the source file can't be opened (eg, due to a permissions problem) a better error message is displayed.
  • "New Version" alerts are now displayed more...

Heard and read good things about this app. Unfortunately it is no longer supported by the authors, and doesn't seem to work under Mavericks. The download message indicates corrupt file. Has anyone had more recent experience with this app. Love to use it.

Works fine under Mavericks here. Perhaps you should try downloading it again. It's not really my cup of tea as I prefer to get under the hood a bit more, but it works.

This app was very helpful. I edited some audio files that I used in keynote and it was a life saver, but it may have clipped some of the audio short. I converted some mp3 files to AIFF and then back so Levelator could do its thing, so I am not certain that it was Levelator that was the culprit, but I am leaning more to it. Great piece of software otherwise though.

Every now and then I receive a podcast that my elderly ears find unlistenable because the sound levels of the various speakers are all over the map. (Are you listening, Macworld?) After running the offending file through Levelator, my ears are much happier. This app goes to 11!

Excellent little app for cleaning up recorded speech. Saved me tons of time and did a better job that I could do in Peak.
