    Lame has a set of options "-scale n", "-scale-r n", and "-scale-l n", that can be used to adjust the volume of the encoded sound. I'm converting some CDs of a speaker, made live, on the fly, and the recording system doesn't make the volume very high. When converting to MP3 I'd love to be able to adjust the volume, so that the ultimate listeners don't have to crank their volume all the way up. I don't see another way to do it in the lame man page.
