This is the script that might be a starting point.  You can copy and paste it into the Edit Script File under the Scripts for Automation button (the one with a scroll on it).

 

Caution: if used unmodified it may make all your files louder in density than you are wanting for this application.  Also, if files are noisy this routine will make that more obvious.

Adobe Audition can do a batch Dynamics Processing routine.  If you call a script, you can write that script to do more than one thing on a pass.  For example, you could generate a script that first hard limits all files at some nominal level like -1 or -3 dBfs, then normalize to some pre-determined level.  The trick is to get the settings in the hard limiter right so they actually work the way you want them to. 

 

I have a script that I use regularly for punching up peaky audio.  It first normalizes to level the “playing field” then it does a compression routine, and then normalizes again after the compression routine.  I don’t think you want this particular script but I could post it or otherwise send it to you for a baseline, perhaps, to then write your own.

Hi all,

I have a sometimes client with about the worst cut to cut level variations that I have ever heard in their music, spots, voice tracks and liners.  It stemmed from a lack of maintenance, lack of interest, drag-and-drop cut ingestion and the mass aggregation of cuts from several different sources.

Has anybody done a full library normalization (thousands of cuts)?  What software did you use?  Any problems?  How consistent were the levels afterward?  Was there a limit to how much the software would correct the levels?

And as always, free or cheap is good...

Regards,
