    Reduce volume of MP3

    I have downloaded an mp3 to use as background music for our phone system. However, the volume is too loud, and our phone system doesn't allow us to reduce the play volume of the mp3.

    Does anyone know of any software or other means to reduce the recorded volume of an mp3?

    Audacity. Its OpenSource, so its free. And its very powerful and pretty easy to use.

    As Doc Brown said, Audacity is an excellent program, their is also a portable version which I use. N.B. make a copy of your mp3 to practice with.

    You can also try MP3Gain (http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/). its primary purpose is to even out the loudness of all of your MP3 (so you don't have to constantly adjust the volume between tracks) but it can also be used to reduce the volume. You have MP3Gain open a directory containing MP3 and tell it to set the volume to a certain decibel level and it does the rest. And you can tell it to undo its changes at any time. I use it every time I rip a new CD.

    I've noticed also that every MP3 you download seems to be at a different volume.

    I'll check these programs out. Thanks for the suggestions.
