Source: Live stream fromcaptured to .wav with VLC. Encoded to vbr mp3 using RazorLame (-b 8 -m m -h -V 5 -B 64). MP3DirectCut was used to delete the commercials. I used MP3Gain (which does not just do peak normalization, as many normalizers do. Instead, it does some statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear. Also, the changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless. There is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and re-encoding.) to adjust the volume. The result was ID3-tagged.
