Hi all!
I've been using the dBpoweramp suite for years now and just bumped into a scenario that I just can't get to work.

I currently use PLEX MEDIA SERVER to stream my music to my iPhone and to my Amazon Echo devices. Now, it's a real PITA to keep juggling the volume controls since the loudness levels are all over the place. One track plays at a decent volume then the next blows the walls down.

Now, I used the replaygain (default options btw) in the batch converter to write the proper tags into the files. PLEX also has a normalize option to enable the reading of these replaygain tags to normalize the tracks. BUT, it just doesn't seem to work.

My question to the fine folks here - does anyone know if PLEX supports normalization and if so what do I need to do in order to encode my media tracks to a "normal" loudness level?

Background info: my original media library is in FLAC format - I've tried converting with the replaygain DSP enabled to Apple LossLess as well as MP4a and the tracks still don't normalize in PLEX.

Any suggestions or procedure to enable PLEX to normalize my tracks? Now I run the "free" version of PLEX media server but if you convert to their Season Pass you can use their PLEXAMP app that has all the loudness controls + many other features.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Cheers - dennis
