The Levelator® 2.0 is Here


After more than ten months of work (and waiting for third-party components), I’m thrilled to announce the release of a major update to The Levelator®. Version 2.0.3 for Windows and OS X is now available for download. Some of the changes include:

  • A number of improvements have been made to The Levelator’s® algorithms based on sample audio files submitted by users. Most notably is a reduction in certain unnatural volume adjustments.
  • libsndfile has been updated to version 1.0.21 which has fixed the following:
    • 24-bit files are now properly supported.
    • Soundtrack Pro 2 .aiff files are now supported.
    • Adobe Soundbooth files are now supported.
    • Unicode filenames are now supported.
  • Very short source files are now supported.
  • You can now drag/drop and audio file onto the application icon in the OS X Dock.
  • The Levelator® now verifies that it has sufficient disk space for temporary and output files before processing the source file.
  • ctrl-o/cmd-o (Open File…) now works after alt-tab has been used to switch applications.
  • The .ini (settings) file is now deleted during installation in order to properly refresh the ‘news’ timestamp. (Fixed in Windows version only.)
  • The formatting of error reports has been improved.
  • Log files are now unique on a per-user basis.

  1. Mr. Kaye,

    Is the Levelator still a product? Is there a command line interface now? Per your post here did you integrate the leveler with audacity? What is the current homepage of the product?
