        any recording, actually. I want to listen inside a running automobile, 
and in any recording with too much dynamic range I have to 'ride the gain' 
while listening. Some bird calls are like this, but  I am just as interested 
for music. In my editing software you can't automate the process at all. I was 
hoping for something that would allow me to batch process files.
