How do we adjust the volume percentage for programs like Audacity? It only shows me the dB value for the volume.

@Lanikai: Percentage to dB Calculator

Use the signal value instead of power.

There is actually a plugin for audacity that allows you to alter amplitude by percent. I found it after a Google search after looking for one for this exact reason :p

Are the volume values in the list of Mario Kart 8 values represented as "parts of 127"? Therefore, does 113 mean it has to be 113/127, or 88.976377952% (lol), which is equal to -1.0145 dB?

Obviously this will be automatically done in vgmstream when you've managed to inject the stuff, but if we're too impatient and wanted to do it manually, is what I said correct?

@TUK Yes, that's how it works. Volume values are 0-127, so 127 is "full volume," or 100% (Brawl worked the same way). Therefore any lower values are "x out of 127" so we can set up a proportion such as:

113/127 = x/100

and get a percent. Or divide x/127 and multiply by 100. As long as you properly calculate the dBs for your percentage or use the plugin I mentioned above, this is accurate.

A quick question about the setup of the tracks.
Earlier in this thread, someone mentioned about making the music (Track 0 & 1) balanced by selecting "Make Stereo Track" in Audacity.

Do I do the same for the frontrunning beats? Because when I do this, they get noticeably quieter. And I know what we're discussing now is getting correct volumes with the music, so I wanted to be sure.

Frontrunning tracks should already be stereo (stereo means it has two channels... it does not mean it has different sounds coming from the left and right channels). If it sounds mono, (that is, all sounds are centered), but has two channels, where each of the left and right channels is equal, it is still technically stereo.

The front-running beats are two channels (left and right), therefore, they should be made stereo (and are intended to be stereo).
by LaniKai at 4:43 PM EDT on May 30, 2015
Yes they do have two channels. Only reason why I felt the need to ask is because the music tracks are described on the side bar as Left and Right for Tracks 0 & 1 respectively. But for the frontrunnings, both just say Mono. But you're right, they're technically stereo. So I also selected "Make Stereo Track" for the frontrunning channels as well.

That's just because Audacity doesn't ever make tracks beyond 2 left or right automatically.
