I´m in the process of digitizing a tape which features 90's dance tracks recorded from FM, but the problem is that some idiot (me at age 12) used to change the recording volume constantly between tracks instead of keeping a constant and uniform volume for all tacks.
After individual track click removal and normalization effect, the overall volume has dramatically improved, but it's far from perfect, as you can see from the waveform below:
Clearly the inner waveform (light blue) from the second and the last tracks have a much louder amplitude (and do sound louder). Messing around with the Normalize Loudness effect didn't help at all, or I'm using it improperly. My goal is to normalize all tracks loudness to achieve an uniform loudness and waveform along all tracks, as if no one have ever messed with the recording volume knob 25 years ago. Any suggestions are welcome, thanks.
