Is fragment of your voice recording too quiet? Do your audio files have different volume levels? Smart Gain can both normalize the volume level of all audio files and amplify a quietly recorded track or its fragment.
You can be sure that the file will be played at the same volume everywhere, not only in iTunes. By normalizing your files without converting them, Smart Gain allows you to retain the original quality of all your audio files.
Smart Gain automatically selects the best volume level for each file, causing all files to be played back at the same volume level. Manual adjustment of amplification offers a way to amplify quietly recorded tracks, such as a voice recording, to an appropriate level. Changes made to the amplification level are immediately reflected in the file waveform, enabling you to achieve the best result effortlessly.
You have the option to change the volume level of an entire file or its fragment. This lets you amplify quietly recorded fragments without changing the overall volume level of the file.

What's New in Version 1.3
Fixed issues with help
Does what it's supposed to but there is very little feedback or documentation on what and how to do it. A batch feature where it levels all the songs automatically would be awesome, but you won't find that here.
Not so smart
I missed the review that stated it doesn't do batches or I would not have purchased it. With several thousand files to normalize, Smart Gain seems not so smart. When it learns to handle batches, folders and subfolders it might turn into a handy piece of software.
This app works as advertised.
