In Response To: Re: M1 Soundtrack Remakes, Completed in 7 Years (treellama)

: You can normalize the whole set by finding the peaks in all the files,
: calculating the volume adjustment necessary to normalize that, and then
: applying it to all tracks. Might be easier than joining/splitting.

I've actually done this, but haven't had the time to package them up. Here they are without any tags or artwork.

The spaced-joined file is a CUE file next to a single M4A with an extra 1.5 seconds between each track. Might be useful if anyone wants to burn it to CD.

(Give it until 8:30 EDT before they're fully uploaded.)

And the script that I used to create them. Just place the lossless QT2.0 tracks in a folder called ALAC and run this from directly above that directory.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/464024/Music/process.sh

Basically, I:
1) decoded the lossless to WAVE
2) duped the mono to stero (otherwise shntool wouldn't process them)
3) used shnfix to ensure each ended on a CD sector (this adds a minuscule amount of silence)
4) normalize
5) convert back to M4A
6) tack on 1.5 seconds of silence to the end of each
7) build a CUE file
8) join the tracks to a single file
9) convert to M4A

The script uses shntool, alac, sox, and normalize (all from MacPorts), as well as afconvert.

Easy peasy :-)
