iVolume

3.7.5
07 July 2015

Improves iTunes' built-in sound level.

Overview

iVolume ensures that all your iTunes songs play at the same volume level. It calculates the volume perceived by the human ear for each song of your iTunes music collection. Thereby iVolume gets the most out of the approved Replay Gain algorithm and adjusts your songs accordingly.

Features
  • Compatible With Your Digital Life: iVolume integrates seamlessly with iTunes on Mac and PC, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, FrontRow and AirTunes. Most popular audio file formats like MP3, M4A/AAC, AIFF and Apple Lossless are supported.
  • Blazingly Fast: iVolume takes advantage of newest technologies to fully utilize every core of modern multiprocessor machines for optimal performance.
  • Avoids Unnecessary Work: iVolume remembers all results ever calculated. Apply changed adjustment settings without the need for re-analyzing your songs.
  • Keeps Albums Intact: By using a sophisticated album detection algorithm iVolume optionally adjusts albums as a whole to keep the intention of the artist. This method is particularly suitable for adjusting gapless live albums.
  • Highly Configurable: Create groups to apply individual fine tuned settings to any specified subset of your songs.
  • Awesome Usability: All the features above are fun and incredibly easy to use through a modern and clear user interface.

If it's really true that iVolume 2 will no longer work properly with iTunes 7.7.1 and newer, then that really stinks. Because quite frankly, $30 for this one-trick pony is a bloody insane ripoff, and I simply won't pay it. It was well worth the $7 it originally cost, and I was even willing to pay again when it doubled in v2, but the developer is getting awfully greedy now, and $30 is absolutely RIDICULOUS -- especially when you consider that the core "work" done by this app is done by an open source algorithm painstakingly written by SOMEBODY ELSE, given away for free, then taken by this schmuck and wrapped in a simple GUI that gets unnecessarily gunked up with CPU-wasting and pointless animations while the price -- for the exact same algorithm and results (which is all the work of someone ELSE) -- doubles every release. I no longer recommend this to anyone, and I will never support this guy ever again.

IVolume 3.7 crashes immediately on startup. I use a iMac27 and latest version of Mavericks. Anyone having the same issue? No problems however when returning to iVolume 3.6.6.

As of iTunes 11 (or maybe one of the later versions of iTunes 10.x), I've run into a lot of songs in my library that are no longer playing at the correct volume level. It used to be possible to "nudge" iTunes into re-reading the iTunNORM value from the file, but the old trick for this (editing some tag, then changing it back) no longer works. 1. Selecting multiple songs and changing one or more tag values no longer causes iTunes to refresh the SoundCheck value for those songs. Absolutely nothing will change when editing multiple songs. The *only* way to get iTunes to recognize the volume level in the file is to change a tag for one (and *only* one) song at a time, e.g. add "2" to the end of the album name. 2. Here's the worst part: as soon as you change that tag back, iTunes reverts to the wrong volume level, which means there's effectively no way to get it to recognize the SoundCheck level set by iVolume unless you're willing to have wrong info for the song. Even restarting iTunes between changes doesn't help. iTunes now seems to have the original SoundCheck level for each song (as measured by iTunes when the song was first imported) stored in its big unreadable binary database, and apparently there is no longer any way to get it to update that value. If a song plays too loud or too quiet, it's basically stuck that way. While iVolume itself still works quite well, this issue really defeats the entire purpose of using it. I've contacted the developer with a detailed report of this problem. Here's hoping he can figure out some way to work around this, because I've tried everything (and I've been coercing iTunes to do what I want it to do since v1.0, so I know my way around it).

Your right. I've recently started using iTunes Match since I have many old music from the now out of business eMusic store. After iTunes Match to higher bit rate, some just won't adjust with iVolume. I have to manually adjust them.

So glad to see iVolume is still being maintained. Been running it for a couple of years to keep my new iTunes tracks' volume in line with the rest of my library. Works rather well though I still occasionally have a track I need to tweak (usually they're too quiet and need to be brought up a bit) but most tracks fall right in line.

Just tried to use iVolume after updating to OS X 10.8.2 and iTunes 10.7. iVolume crashes whenever I click the "Start" button. Anyone else having this lockup problem?

What gives with the PPC/Intel 10.4+ requirements? When I downloaded version 3.6.5 it was 10.6+ and Intel only.

Kind of a failure especially compared to prior versions. Bloated and confusing interface, keyboard shortcuts not intuitive and worst of all the app crashes every time right after the start if it's not allowed to connect to mani.de. Also since the app is just some GUI for the replay gain algorithm it's grotesquely overpriced.
