One big app that we use constantly and is arguably the best (free & simple) tool to automatically adjust audio levels for podcasts and any kind of recording is Levelator. There's simply no directly comparable replacement and unfortunately it's a 32-bit app that won't run on Catalina. This is just one app that I can't live without and using a virtual machine for this one thing with such consistency is really a showstopper for "upgrading" to Catalina. Sadly since the app is no longer maintained, there doesn't seem to be any hope to get a 64-bit version from the now-defunct developers.
Does anyone have any method to update or hack Levelator so that it'll run with Catalina since it appears to be primarily a (compiled) Python script?
I'm wondering if perhaps the
python bin can be updated and still execute Levelator's obfuscated script?
