    Need help on volume adjustment :(.

    I'm quite bothered when the tracks I listen to don't have the same levels. Does Sound Check really do the trick or should I use another software to fix my levels? I am planning on testing a playlist by unchecking Sound Check and adjusting the levels using volume adjustment. Will appreciate any help you can give me on this. Thanks. :)

    in my experience, sound check makes everything sound soft. i usually leave it off! ;) since i mostly listen to house music, all the levels are mostly the same even without the Sound check option.

    I leave Sound Check in iTunes and my iPod on. I have a tendency to play my music over speakers, and I've found this feature to be useful for my uses.

    mine's off but i when i buy mp3s i usually get the 160kbps and up encoded ones. the 192s are better of course but if you want quality get the 320s. some mp3 stores offer the 320s when downlading. :) this keeps the sound of my mp3s uniform so i don't have too use soundcheck... :)
