Default Normalize

Hi people

Quick question.

I do some VO recording. There are different levels in the volume. Some parts louder than others. Instead of manually going to Volume and adjust the the levels of the volume, is there some other way I can just mark the whole track and, at the push of a couple of button, have the software adjust the whole thing so that the volume is at the same level throughout the whole track.

I tried Normalizing but it still leaves many parts softer or louder. And I still have to resort to the Volume option thing.

Not sure if you understand what I am asking, but those of you who do, know how to solve the prob?

You can put a compressor on the track and lightly push the gain into it, but youll still need to ride the faders!!!!!!!

There is no free lunch, and if it were easy everyone would do it. Compressing a track enough so you don't have to touch it would most likely be too much compression to sound good. The compressor that seems to do this better than most is the Waves Ren Vox. A little automation on the threshold will be much less work than riding the fader, and still sound pretty good.
