of course if you know of a volume checker that works with the Chrome OS that would make it easy

Here's a PDF of the file listing, including the volumes.

That will be a start, anyway. :)

I'm sorry but I'm a bit technologically challenged at times. Where can I see the PDF?

That makes it easy, I have a volume changer that should let me correct the low volumes, I try the first 3 in the next few minutes. if they come out right I run through the rest of them

Do I need to re-copy the links for the new downloads and replace the existing ones or will the links in the magic window still work as long as I use the same file names?

The links in the MW will work if you keep the same file names.

Note that a couple of them are nonstandard the way you have them: section 9 is missing the "kb" part of the 128kb, and section 71 has two F's on lagerlof. This is fine; just upload them the same way, and I'll fix the file names easily when cataloging. Or if you do change the file names, be sure to change the link in the MW.

I tweaked the first 3 sections. If my volume changer is working as advertised they should all be within 0.5 DB of 89 now.
Let me know if it worked, If I did I'll do the same to the rest and let you know when I'm done

88.9, 91.8, 90.9 respectively.

They're not all within 0.5 dB of 89, but that will work beautifully!

If you have a chance I would love to get a PDF with the new volumes so I can see how accurate my volume changer is

Looks good! Here's the new PDF:

One thing I notice, however - there is a lot of clipping in the recordings now. That can cause distortion in the audios. I don't recommend using this method on future recordings. I would suggest on any future solos, be sure to state that the DPL needs to check volumes for you. Then you can do compression and amplification on the original recording, such that you can get the volume up without clipping.
