FAQ: What's volume leveling?

Roon analyzes your music files using the ReplayGain algorithm. Roon also uses volume leveling information provided by TIDAL for their streaming content. If volume leveling is enabled, Roon will automatically adjust the volume to maintain a consistent loudness from track to track. This can be enabled from the queue, by clicking on the "gears" icon on the right.
