iVolume 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.

iVolume is now at version 3.9. It was released Nov 21, 2020. - - NOTE: Updating from v3.7.5 will CLEAR your previous database of volume settings! It's not a big deal as the re-adjustments are fast! But it's a bit of a chore if you have lots of tuneage. Plan ahead!

I nearly passed on this software because of misleading reviews. Thankfully I didn’t! Common complaints are that it’s too expensive, it crashes often, and isn’t compatible with new operating systems. I’ll address each issue here: The software works so well that it’s the best $30 I’ve ever spent; I have a 17,000 song library and it only crashed a few times (and when it does it’s not a big deal as you simply restart where it left off); and, it worked perfectly on my Mac using Catalina OS. Honestly, the quality of the volume leveling is amazing. I always listen to my music in random shuffle mode and the irregular volumes of my ripped MP3 files has been a major bane for years. I’m ecstatic with the results of this software.

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).

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?

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.

OMG! This is the worst case of NAGware I've ever seen! The registration window says it will remind you "from time to time to register." That "time to time" works out to every 5 seconds! When unregistered, the process only runs for 5 seconds before it stops and displays a registration nag screen. You must wait the designated amount of time before you may proceed: 1st pause=5 sec., 2nd pause=10 sec., 3rd pause=15 sec., and every pause after that is 20 seconds. So after running for 5 seconds, you must wait 20 seconds before you can run for 5 more seconds! Then, even though the process starts again, it provides an extremely annoying uh-uh sound when you press the Continue button. Maybe the registration screen pops up after a certain number of tracks have been processed, but it worked out to every 5 seconds for me. And don't you dare go try to use another app while it's running, because in 5 seconds when it's time to hit Continue again, the icon begins bouncing in the Dock, making you want to punch the screen. I have now disabled Dock icon bouncing. I didn't get to fully evaluate the app, because I don't have the patience or time to sit here pressing the Continue button every 20 seconds, and I'm not not gonna waste time making a script to do it for me. I'm giving 2 stars for Features, Value and Stability just because I have to provide a rating to submit this review. They may merit 5 stars, but there's no way to tell since I couldn't test the app.

In my opinion this software is overpriced. I like to have my music at the same volume, but I'd pay around 4 to 6 euro's for it, tops.

I wanted all my 6½ thousand music tracks on iTunes to be at the same volume level, and had started listening to them individually and adjusting each one. This would take for ever, so I looked for an application that would do it for me, and iVolume seemed ideal. I set it to adjust all tracks to 93db. Although it adjusted all the tracks, they were audibly still at different volume levels. Many of the originally quieter ones, such as those from the 1930s, although now louder, were still too quiet and certainly not at the same volume level as louder tracks. To overcome this, I created folders in iVolume, each with its own volume adjustments, and started listening to each track to determine which ones should go into which folders to bring all tracks to about the same volume level. It was several weeks before I realised I was doing again what I had been doing in the first place before buying iVolume to do it for me. I want an application that will adjust all my music collection so that all tracks play at the same volume level such that, for example, Bing Crosby plays at the same volume level as Metallica without my having to adjust the volume. iVolume is not that application. Finally, there doesn't appear to be a way to remove all iVolume's adjustments and reset mps3 to their original volume levels.

I've been using this for a long time and has been very happy with it. Lately I have experienced some crashes with Apple Lossless files. This new version has solved that, the files that used to make iVolume crash are now analyzed correctly without crashes.
