Using Magix Cleaning Lab to Enhance Your MP3 Experience
 Magix Audio Cleaning Lab 2005 is a great tool for cleaning up those recorded files that need a bit of cleaning. But here’s a little trick that I use to make what I call “MP3 Albums”.
 I became frustrated while listening to my MP3 player because the level of the music varies,sometimes quite damatically,from label to label. For instance ; spin a song from Peter Gabriel’s Us and then play ZZ Top’s Mescalro imediately afterward without adjusting the volume of your listening device. Ok,after your ears stop ringing you might want to seek the help of a hearing specialist. Enter Magix Audio Cleaning Lab. Simply import Mp3 , wave files,or rip the music right from a CD. You can even change the sequence of the order afterward. Then we move to the cleaning stage (you’ll find this tab at the top of the window). You’ll need to select a track. Then on the left side of the window choose the link that says Optimise/Mastering. Choose Optimise Volume. Choose Independent Normalization of all Objects.
Now I have many CDs and some were printed in the 1980’s. If you’re like me (too cheap to buy the remasters this next feature is great). Choose Start Loudness Adaptation (RMS Normalization). Depending on the speed of your computer you’ll need to wait a few seconds for this to complete. Afterward you’ll notice that your levels have been changed. Not only are your volume levels adjusted into closer proximity of one another,they also have a compression ratio added. This means that your songs will sound more like the radio.
 Now I hope you have been logging the names of your songs. You can do this as you go along with the Magix Track List. If you export the songs as individual tracks the names will go with them. However,I like to make albums. Sometimes I’ll have one track fade into another. So I keep a list of my tracks on a Windows Notepad. Then after I export all of the songs as one file I simply open the MP3,go to the properties tab,choose advance,open the comments window and simply paste the Notepad file here for a permanent record of the songs within that mp3 file.
 I hope this has been helpful . And wish you many hours of listening pleasure.

I have recently found some old master tapes with various tracks which I had put into storage for years. I have converted them to mp3 format and copied them to disc.
Using my creative audigy software and programs, I will have a look at Cleaning Lab.

Thanks for the useful information !

I have recorded life from my Spiritual Guru who gave lectures sang devotional songs from 1971.

All these recordings were recorded on Ampex & Studer Open Reel Recorders. All these recordings were transferred into mp3 format and stored in several Hard-disk.

I need a software to do some clean-up, remove tape hiss, remove gaps between sessions, noises and normalize levels. I need the best advice .
