This one-trick pony makes normalizing MP3 and WAV files a blissfully easy affair, but the stingy trial restriction takes it down a few notches. Although MP3 Normalizer's main window isn't terribly exciting to look at, it is a snap to understand and operate, particularly because the application does only one thing. After you queue up tracks you wish to normalize, you then set the value according to how loud you want your new tunes to sound. When you click the Normalize button, the app quickly gets to work rendering your improved tracks. In our tests, the program showed decent speeds, normalizing a 10-song disc in less than four minutes. However, if you need to fix more than 10 tracks, you're out of luck, as that's where the trial version cuts off. It's also disappointing that the program doesn't support other popular audio codecs such as OGG. MP3 Normalizer seems ideal for beginners, but they'll probably have to pay to get any real use out of it.
