Thanks all. I have download these mp3 files from the net, so some are bad quality and hence the editing. The way i increase the volume is by using the amplying feature on wavepad (and yes its a demo version). I do know about the volume indicator on the bottom right and i usually keep this just on the red. I use real player for burning files on to CD - perhaps this is the problem? I've read a lot about increasing volumes, but they say to stay well away from doing too much as it will cause clipping and thus loss of quality.
Hi all, After i edit my aduio files and burn to CD, the volume level is too low. My Hi-Fi (which is very load) goes upto 32 points on the volume knob, but i have the crank it upto about 15 to get a decent level when playing the burned cd. I have amplified the volume on wavepad, but most of my files have their peak almost above the threshold, i.e. if i increase anything above 130-150% a lot of clipping will occur. The files i'm editing are mp3 files, so is there anyway to increase the volume without risking heavy clipping?
