Is anyone using Levelator?

My biggest need for audio editing is leveling the volume across multiple clips. I exported the audio of my current video and opened it in Audacity, but the tools there don't seem to do what I want, or at least I don't understand how to get them to do what I want. 

I stumbled upon a tool called The Levelator which does exactly what I want. I realize that it's been "zombie" software since 2012 (no longer being developed), but it seems to work well. 

Has anyone here been using it?

I have not, but it looks like a pretty nice tool.Especially for free.
For leveling narration, it's probably all you'll ever need.

Adobe Audition has a really nice volume leveling feature. "Match Volume"
You can batch edit with a lot of different settings. Check out this video if you have time.Its about 6 minutes long.

I have been using it for many years and iike it. My main audio tool is Audacity. Also heard good reviews of Audition, but if you are looking for FREE tools then Levelator is fine.

Yeah, I like free, as long as it works. Levelator is ridiculously simple to use and it seems to work really well. I'll go back and use it on some of my previous videos to see what difference it makes.

What I noticed with my current project was that in addition to eliminating volume differences between audio clips, having leveled volume seems to make tone differences in my voice less noticeable as well. Love it!
