Locked gain on a PC, or gain info in metadata?

Probably not the right place for this, but I'm sure you chaps will point me in the right direction.

 

We have to send out 'non-technical' field workers to make short recordings in potential recording environments (hotel rooms, offices etc). They'll have a Windows laptop and a UMIK usb mic.

 

Is there a simple way piece of software that 'locks' the record input gain, OR is there a piece of software that includes record gain info within metadata?

 

Cheers

Are you Dave Perry for real, or ?

 

Anyway, just in case others too don't get it really, what would be "record gain info within metadata" ?

 

Metadata of what ?

Of previous sessions ? of offices in general ?

 

Could this be for gaming scenario's indeed ?

 

Sorry if I'm thick or too unknowledged.

Thinking of it again ...

 

If you record something, this requires a certain amount of gain (of the microphone). This is of course in relation to the microphone, the amplifier (at least I think it is) and of course the loudness of the sounds to capture.

Why no incorporate that in the recorded file itself ?

(no idea what to do with it, but I'm sure a dozen good reasons will exist)

But it would require all the parameters (like microphone) to be recorded.

 

Something like MQA perhaps ... (useless for this purpose, but to get the idea).

Similar to Replay gain yes. Basically our field workers will be recording in Goldwave using DirectSound and a USB mic. So we've limited the gain stages but they could still adjust levels within the software. I'm looking for software or s a solution that locks them out, or includes what the microphonr gain setting was at time of recording
