Converting FLAC -> AAC (Normalize)

Post by connolly »

Hello, I just finished ripping all my CD's to FLAC using Max, great experience, much faster/easier than my last attempt using abcde.

Anyway I now have ~360GB of FLAC files that I would like to convert to AAC for use in iTunes and on my iPod. I found the convert option in Max, and it seems to be able to do most of what I want, using core audio.
The only problem is that I would really like to run the WAV files through normalize before they're converted to AAC, is this possible using Max?

Max cannot currently normalize files. You might want to check out SoX for that.
