Make a Song Play Louder in iTunes
Sometimes you’ll run into a a song that plays a lot more quiet than others in iTunes. Instead of being frustrated or turning your speakers up for just one song, you can adjust a songs volume level directly in iTunes.
How to make a song play louder in iTunes
This works in nearly all versions of iTunes for both Mac OS X and Windows:
- Right-click on the song you want to play louder
- Click on the “Options” tab
- Slide the “Volume Adjustment” slider to the right, go for 100% if you want the song to be amplified the most
- Click on “OK” and the song will immediately play louder
The volume adjustment works well and it does not seem to degrade the audio quality of the song by any noticeable amount. I have to do this somewhat often when I download songs from the web, or when I convert web video to MP3 for playing in iTunes.
You can also set iTunes to play all songs at the same volume level, which lets iTunes automatically equalize all songs played.
