    Hi,
    It is well known that mp3 encoding increases volume and with tracks at 0dB or even less this leads to significant distortion even at 320kbps. Now having the comfort of CDex isn't it possible to put a function into it that reduces the volume before encoding on the fly so i don't have to do it manually ? Would be nice to have a setting where i can put in for example reduce by -1 dB or whatever i think is needed.
    Normalizing is not the same and i don't want to use that or is there a setting that allows that?
    Cheers,
    Olaf
