I have done a similar script to normalize programming with
Audition. What I am actually using now is a normalize exe file
that runs stand-alone in a CMD window. It might be the same one
Tim has. It does a pretty good job, though (as with any normalize)
there are issues with certain programs that have a high amount of
compression to begin with. I actually run it as a scheduled task
daily to normalize programming.
The other thing I ran into is that it seemed to have issues
normalizing a folder if stuff in that folder was currently in use.
I got around this by running it on my programming during a music
segment. It takes some experimenting, but you can test with a
single file and look at the results, then use wildcards to
normalize a whole folder.
The other nice thing about this one is that you can set a
limit--it will scan the file and if it's within 2 dB for example,
it will abort the normalize on that file, saving a lot of time for
files that are already close.
