    I use wavepad, and always to test recordings to check quality/levels etc.

    Then when it's finished i tend to normalize it & if it's quiet, amplify it slightly.

    Always keep a 320 copy for burning to CD's as well.

    Download the wavepad trial free here.

    Good advice, i always save an unedited .wav file first. then normalize, and save as 320 mp3

    Why compress a WAV to 320 mp3 to stick on a CD when you can burn an uncompressed WAV to CD?

    I know WAV mixes aren't practical to upload to the internet because of the size but if you are just burning it to CD then the original WAV file will be the best possible quality.
