Okay, here's my question, is there an EASY way to edit audio files, like MP3s or whatever it is your file is when on your Windows Media Player?

Not all of my files play at the same volume, and I was hoping I could tweek them easily.

Anybody know how to do this?

For editing, I recommend Audacity. We train beginners using this program, but you can do some advanced stuff as well. It's pretty straight forward.

What you are wanting to do, however, isn't an exact science. I'd be careful to play around only using back ups until you get the hang of it. It's not just a matter of increasing or decreasing the volume of your tracks.

Most burning programs have audio editing programs included with them. What do you use?

When I burn CDs I use the WMP, I used to use Nero but it just didnt work as fast as WMP does.

MP3Gain is a quick program that I use to get all of the mp3s I want to burn to be the same volume. It only works with (guess what?) mp3s though.

For all other types of audio editing, I use Goldwave.

edit: I should point out that there are some songs that can throw off MP3Gain. Because it works based on the average volume of your mp3, if a song is quiet for a while, and then gets loud it might make it quieter than you wanted. It's a good idea to test them once real quick after you're done just to make sure. Bohemian Rhapsody is a good example of the type of song I'm talking about. 99% of them turn out fine though.

I use a program called mptrim. Its main purpose (as you might suggest from the name) is to automatically remove blank space from the beginning and end of files. But it also does automatic volume control and fixing incomplete frames.

So my three year old started playing with buttons on the monitor, keyboard, or both. Now, colors don't appear as they did before -- things look washed out, for the most part. Any tips on what to look for to fix what he did? Thanks!
