My current PC audio/visual player is MediaMonkey.  Aside from the usual playing and organizing audio and video files, it allows me to attach artwork and input lyrics (both manual input and website download).

While fairly happy with it, I am looking for something that can do all the above -- plus:

  o  set and save play volume by song
  o  set and save equalizer settings by song

I know iTunes can do all the above, but I would prefer something else.  If you know of specific add-on's to Mediamonkey for the above, that would be fantastic, but I've looked and didn't find any.  So, other suggestions?

I know iTunes has the volume adjustment per song or album, but I've never noticed a difference when i adjust it.

For example, I have a live album that has an interview between each song.  The songs are rather loud, but the interviews are so quiet, I can barely hear them when the volume is at a reasonable level for the songs.  I've tried iTunes adjustment for just the interviews, but it never seems to work.

That being said...I still use iTunes...mostly because of my iPod & the easy podcast organization.

Yeah, some things that I don't like about iTunes...

Anyone with suggestions?

Track volume auto-leveling is available in MediaMonkey Gold. Not sure if that would do what you want, since it converts all tracks to play back at a volume you set.

Rick:

For the longest time, I was resigned to constantly adjusting sound volume -- but finally bit the bullet and used MonkeyMedia's "level track volume" -- which made permanent changes to all my music files (uploading all of them to the cloud for backing up took quite a while).  But now, I am happy enough with the nearly-leveled volumes.  My fear that changing the files themselves might degrade the music permanently was unfounded.

So, now, the only thing I am really missing is the ability to customize the music equalizer to particular songs.  The reason is that I have a few songs badly copied from cassettes -- and using the music equalizer can help reduce the hissing noise.

Since it's only about a dozen songs -- maybe what I need is a separate app to do a one-time song quality improvement?
