I think that there is an option in most media players that will automatically level the sound. See if it's in the ripping options, or if its just a playback option that you can uncheck.

folks, I have a strange question, I've got a bunch of cd's that i've ripped to iTunes, but when I play it back over my speakers, I can definitely hear a "pulse" sort of thing going on in the volume, like the sound is actively being damped at somewhat regular points.
Is this a result of a "smashed" album? Has anybody else heard this happening on their systems? I will say the overall level of the songs I can really hear it on is quite a bit higher than ones that don't "seem" to pulse. I guess I'm curious as to if I'm hitting a hardware limit and it's compensating or this is just crappy mixing? The CDs, specifically (among a couple others) is Project 86: Rival Factions and Skillet: Comatose.
I'm just playing it over a laptop soundcard and logitech x-540's.
