I have recently switched to Reaper. Is possible to direct me to videos that share what external editors are needed to analyze an item that has been rendered? I attempted to obtain mp3GainGUI for my Mac. I could only find mp3Gain. When I went to the editor to I received the message that some external editors failed to launch. It may be possible that I don't have everything I need to analyze. I have audio book preset in my fx folder. ( I received that information from your "Being consistent with ACX video on You Tube). Is there checklist/video that I can review? I need to check an audition to see if it meets the ACX specs.
Thank you,
Adrienne

MP3 Gain is not used for the ACX. This program is used for audio that target a specific db range. The ACX uses the RMS scale for loudness.

In Reaper, the only plugin you need is the "Audio Statistics". This plugin will check your RMS range, (between a -18 and -23), your background noise/noise floor, (-60dbs max) and your total peak. (-3db max). I will do a short video and post it here.
