#2 has 19:22 sec

#3 has 16:30

I am not sure I amplified correctly please let me know. It sounds loud to me, but it did not sound low to be before.

Thanks

3
Both files have the same volumes (86 and 84.4dB, respectively) as before thought in both the end silences have been corrected. The volume of 3 should be amplified by ~4.5dB. Below are instructions for installing software (ReplayGain and Mp3Gain) that you might find useful in determining volume. Amplification should always be done using Audacity. The instructions/links are for Windows machines.

Use the instructions below to install the plugin ReplayGain into Audacity.
- Click this link,
http://forum.audacityteam.org/download/file.php?id=4685
and save the file to your computer - somewhere you can find it.
- Then go to the folder in which Audacity is installed (on my computer, it's in C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity) and open the Plug-Ins folder.
- Drag or copy the file you saved into the Plug-Ins folder.
- The next time you start up Audacity go to Effects/ReplayGain, and it'll tell you how much to amplify your file. If you highlight part of the file it will tell you how much to amplify just that part of the file. It does not give you the exact dB of the file but it can be inferred from how much it tells you to amplify.

Another useful program is Mp3Gain. It gives you actual dB levels for the audio file and it can also analyze multiple files. It is a separate program independent from Audacity and is available free at the following link:
http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/download.php

Always use Audacity (Effects/Amplify) to change the volume of the file. If clipping will occur Audacity will not amplify the file. You will need to use Effects/Compression before you amplify the file. Watch the video below.
