Dear Dan,

I must be missing something. I thought that normalizing just pushed all
sounds up to the max of the loudest sound. So it raises the entire "chorus"=
 up to
the point where the loudest starts to "clip". So soft and loud things would=

still be relatively "soft" and "loud". It is just like turning the volume u=
p or
down. Right?  I sure hope so.

My best,

John V. Moore Nature Recordings
