Increase volume of a song

Sep 8, 2011 at 6:55 PM

Hi, i'm new to NAudio projects and it's very cool!

I'm creating an audio player, i want to know if it's possibile to increment the max volume of a song!

I've seen also Skype voice changer but when i increment the max volume the song starts to croak!

Can i have some explanation about this problem and how can i fix it?

Thanks in advance!

You should generally increase the Windows volume rather than the volume of the audio data itself, or you will likely get overflow / clipping (going above 0dB). Most music has already had its dynamic range compressed heavily, so there is little to no scope for increasing its volume at the sample level.
