I have ripped a lot of my collection to FLAC/ALAC (lossless, 16 bit and 44.1Khz) but I've noticed that some of my albums (like Tool's Lateralus) is a bit soft. I've set out to tweak the rips a bit. On Audacity I can amplify a good amount without clipping. However, as rudimentary as Audacity is, I'm fearing a loss of audio quality and artifacts being left behind by the amplification process. Should the file be fine after the amplification?
