    Is there a way to change the default sound volume of a single sound file without having to raise the volume? I'm asking, because I transferred both .wavs and .mp3s to my cellphone, but it plays them with different volumes. I can barely hear one of them even when my phone's volume is at maximum.

    I think you will have to open it in some sound application and amplify it. There's probably some neat little script/program that could do it, but not that I know of.

    Free audio editor. Haven't tried it but sounds good. (hah)

    Audacity works perfectly for that, no need to look further.

    One way I know of is to convert the .mp3 file to a .wav then use creative wave sudio to ampify then covert it back to a .mp3. it should play at the desired volume

    or maybe you can do it with soundforge without converting to .wav

    look for a setting called normalization

    its usually set to 100% but generally you want to set it to like 98%

    what that does is set the highest mean at a certian point
