    Default How to make songs in Traktor Pro 2 louder? (Wave-form wise)?

    Hi I need help in making certain songs louder in traktor without turning up the gain. I have a couple songs in my library that I really want to play out, and they're good quality but the audio levels of the tracks are super low. I dont want to crank up the gain cause it will just mess with my headroom and stuff. I need a software (preferably freeware) that will go in and make the tracks to their full potential w/o distorting it. For example, you can clearly tell when a song is going to be super low in Traktor when you load it up. The wave forms of the low sounding songs are wayyyy smaller than those of the super high quality "perfect" volume tracks. I attached a photo if you still dont get what I mean, but I really need help on this one. Anyone....helpppp please djtt question.jpg

    As far as I know, you can't... you have to normalize them OUTSIDE of Traktor using other software.

    I use "Platinum Notes" from "Mixed In Key" producers. Works really well! It goes through gain, dynamics, expansion, compression and pitch correction (for harmonic mixing). Though minor gain adjustments still needed from within Traktor from time to time. There are several settings/templates that can be downloaded from their website.

    I don't know what you mean by messing up your headroom, if the track is low the gain knob turns it up. Honestly, I don't understand why people use "normalizers", it takes 2 seconds to set the input gain for a track.

    Are the tracks pirated or a really low bit quality. If not just turn up the gain.

    Audacity

    Then normalize

    But traktor has double gain stage now...

    Which is nice so why not leave auto gain on a tweak when u need?

    You are supposed to turn the gain up on the mixer for quiet tracks. Normalising the track will only degrade the sound quality and reduce the dynamics of the original song. How do you think people dealt with quiet records?
