"Sound Check" in iTunes!

There is a feature called "Sound Check" in iTunes and what it does is it adjusts the volume of playlists so that you don't have to change the volume all the time. iTunes actually analyzes the volume of all songs to make the adjustments. You can enable the feature in iTunes' preferences, under Playback.

How well does this feature actually work? I'm skeptical.

You also must change the settings on your iPod to get the same effect when using an iPod, right?

It doesn't work very well. It does make songs that were too soft a normal volume, but it ruins songs that are at an acceptable level by making them too soft. If you select sound check for burning a CD, you'll have to crank up the volume on your playing device.

I agree with chris - I edit every single track with Audacity before I move the tracks to iTunes.

I prefer to crop out the silence at the beginning/end of every single track and adjust the volume to peak level.

More time consuming, but it really saves space and enhances the entire iTunes library.
