I was wondering how others treat mp3's with audacity.
Is there such thing as a quick golden recipy. Like adding and or
removing gain plus some auto range compressing and a few other steps?.
I have made this letter longer than usual, because i lack the time to
make it short.

You asked a difficult question, IMO. Are you referring to treating mp3
If the mp3 file sounds bad, I don't know any methods for fixing it.
I've heard about some audio hardware, Crystal something technology,
was it from Creative?
Changing gain won't help. The idea of compression is to rise the
average volume, which also rises the level of (often quiet) artifacts.
Generally, there are different types of artifacts covering the whole
frequency and volume range. Part of them exist with stereophonic
signal and part of them with monophonic as well.
I think that *decoding* is the best step to "polish" the audio. There
is just no way to alter the decoding process, unless you're clever
enough to write a new decoder. I also think you can do something after
decoding as well, but I'm not aware of any methods that would work.
that is said to improve the quality, but I don'tThere are tools for
enhancing compressed images and video, but what about audio?
