I'm still wondering that maybe Reaper is trying to do it "too efficiently", based on pre-calculated data, that maybe sometimes too inaccurate for such a purpose. Why not have an option to calculate the normalization gain coefficient fully from a sample-by-sample calculation taken from the actual audio sample data from disk...? After all, that's how pretty much every other application seems to do it...It takes some more time to analyze the audio fully, but at least the peak level within the file/item might be detected more reliably that way.

It seems as if REAPER already does this, while building the peak file (to get the maximum loudness/peak/sample in the file), but I could be wrong (at least the peak file (and analysis) is needed to apply normalization.
