·  What tools can I use to diagnose and repair problems with my MP3 files? 
·  Can I increase the quality of an MP3 by decoding and re-encoding it? 
·  How does the player handle gapless playback? 
·  How can I create files that will play back gaplessly on the player? 
·  Why do all my songs play at different volumes? 
·  If I normalize my MP3s, will they sound like they are at the same volume? 

·  Can I use software to apply a "relative volume" offset to each track so they can sound equal?

No, at least not with good results. Take our "pop vs. classical" example:




If you applied a positive volume offset (increase) to the classical piece, then the peaks would distort terribly and maybe even ruin your speakers. If you applied a negative volume offset (decrease) to the pop piece, you would lose any subtle details in the quiet parts.

The only workable solution is to apply additional dynamic range compression at playback time.


·  So how do I do dynamic range compression at playback time?
