    @synx508 @revdancatt Brill, thanks both.

    @revdancatt @synx508 In my case it’s mostly stuff recorded off the radio, which I expect is compressed a lot.

    @synx508 @revdancatt Ta. Everyone’s said to adjust source output, but I can’t really - it’s just the output from the cassette deck.

    @paultweedy Thanks! I only want to do this once rather than do it and think I should have done it differently :)

    @paultweedy Ta. I don't have any control over output from tape deck though. I can increase 'gain' when recording… does that help?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @russss Ta. Don’t have much control over output volume unfortunately. Is changing ‘gain’ on recording better than ‘normalize’ effect after?

    I’m not sure whether I should be aiming for the audio to fill the vertical space, if you see what I mean. Not my area of expertise.

    Question about digitizing old cassettes… should I ensure input is higher volume than this? And/or “normalize” after?
