normalizes audio so that the maximum absolute value of its samples is 1.


normalizes the audio signal based on the specified model.


  • The model specification can be one of the following:
  • snormalize peak to absolute value of s
    "LoudnessEBU"normalize to LUFS
    {"LoudnessEBU",l}normalize to l LUFS
  • AudioNormalize[audio,s] implements peak normalization. All samples are rescaled using the same scaling factor s/TemplateBox[{peak}, Abs], where peak is a sample value with the highest absolute value.
  • The parameter s should be a non-negative real number, typically between 0 and 1.
  • AudioNormalize[audio] is equivalent to AudioNormalize[audio,1].
  • AudioNormalize[audio,{"LoudnessEBU",l}] amplifies audio so that the resulting signal has a global EBU loudness of l LUFS.
