Powershell script to normalize audio to file to 0db using SOX (Sound eXchange)

This script will use SOX to normalize the audio file to 0db with a guard to avoid clipping. The script will make a new directory “Normalised” and save the output normalized file in it. Simply run the Powershell script and Drag & Drop the audio file onto the console, hit Enter, and let the magic happen. SOX Download
