I've added the LUFS level in a couple key spots in the wiki.
(Update) Audacity Loudness Normalization: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/loudness_normalization.html
Is this a built-in effect in the new version(s) of Audacity? If so - cool! 8-) That would be very helpful!

P.S. I wonder if it allows clipping, or if it will only normalize up to that level. :hmm:
Tricia,

It was added in May 2020: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/New_features_in_Audacity_2.4.0#loudness

I would expect it to at least use a limiter to avoid clipping when applying the loudness normalization effect, but I do not know how it is implemented. The purpose of loudness normalization is to target an average loudness instead of just peak levels, so if the effect was only capable of normalizing the peak levels it would not be very useful.
