How to equalize MP3: You are a music lover and can’t stand your MP3 collection to have technical flaws. I am referring above all to the volume of songswhich is different from one song to another and literally drives you crazy when you have to listen to the songs in a portable MP3 player, forcing you to always stay with one finger on the button for adjusting the volume.

How about we sort this out together and see how to equalize MP3 thanks to some free tools designed more or less specifically for this purpose? I promise you that you do not have to make any effort and that the results will be more than excellent even if you are not a great computer or audio editing expert. Let’s get started right away!

If you want to find out how to equalize MP3 easily, the first program I recommend you to try is LASTAR. Then connect to the program’s website and click on the item LASTAR_setup_win32.exe to download it to your PC. When the download is complete, double-click on it to open the file you just downloaded (LASTAR_setup_win32.exe) and, in the window that opens, first click on Run And Yup (to authorize installation on Windows 7 and Vista) and then on OK And Next.

Then accept the conditions of use of the program, putting the check mark next to the item I accept the agreementand click on first Next for four consecutive times and then on Install And Finish to finish the installation process and start LASTAR.

In the window that opens, select the item Open from the menu File and select all the audio files you want to equalize the volume to, make sure there is a check mark next to the item Output level and use the adjustment bar next to it to adjust the volume level to be applied to the songs. Then click on the button Launch processing and wait for the equalization procedure to end.

By default, after doing the equalize MP3LASTAR saves the equalized versions of the songs in the same folders as the original ones (adding LASTAR at the end of the name of the new files) but you can change this setting and select a different destination folder by removing the check mark from the item Keep input path and clicking on the button Output which is on the left.

Thanks to the adjustment bars Compression And Noise level you can also reduce or increase the compression and “noise” level of the selected MP3s. Be careful, however, because abusing these two functions can negatively affect the final quality of the songs.

If you just want to level the volume of your MP3s without reprocessing them, you can also try MP3Gain, the free program that I showed you in my previous guide on how to normalize MP3s. If, on the other hand, you have more professional needs and want to reshape the sound values ​​of each single song, I suggest you take a look at my guide on how to equalize a song with Audacity.
