FFmpeg was equipped in late 2016 with a filter that allows for Loudness control.
See loudnorm in the documentation and a Blog post from the author of the filter.
Many thanks to Kyle for this nice feature!

WinLoud 1.2 is a small GUI to help use Loudnorm.
All you need to do is download FFmpeg and put it in the same folder as WinLoud.

WinLoud 1.0

You can create Droplets with your selected parameters.
WinLoud Droplet

You can also use the Command Line version "WinLoudCLI", distributed in the same package
Here is the manual for the CLI:
>WinLoudCLI.exe -h

Win(-dows) Loud(-norm ffmpeg filter) Command Line Interface
version CC-NC-BY 2016 <>

Usage: WinLoudCLI [Options] Infile Outfile

Supported input filetype: aac, aiff, flac, m4a, mp2, mp3, mp4, ogg, wav, wma
Supported output filetypes: mp3, wav
Filetype is specified by the extension of Outfile
The defalut process is 1 Pass. Optionally, the 2 Pass process can be switched on
Even SMARTer: let the program decide if a 2nd pass is needed

Dependency: ffmpeg.exe with libebur128 (which is standard since Oct 2016)
                has to be found in the same folder as WinLoudCLI.exe
