Dear Atte,

what command line options do you use to make it normalize a file? As i 
understand it, it has a preset dB RMS value of -12. Even if i specify 
"-a 1" and -l 0", meaning an absolute amplitude of 1 and a limiter 
treshold of 1, i can hear compression. Weird, perhaps i still didn't get it.

regards, Peter
