Endnote: The above files are in mp3 (thanks Patrick), you can grab the ogg versions here. I would also like to give an
endorsement for the Levelator,
which Simon turned me on to. It was absolutely brain dead easy to use
and it basically normalizes volume, and cleans up the files for you. And
its Free as in Beer and Free as in Freedom.
Pau for now...
