You need to use an audio editor like Audition or possibly Soundbooth - not Premiere.
Joep. right mouse click on the audio clip , left click audio gain and then normalize, ok. About the best premiere can do.
Normalizing a clip will bring it's peak to 0 dBFS. That's significantly above the target of -18.
Are you sure they want the audio between -22 and -18? Thats aweful quiet.
Perhaps they meant the lows should be in that range?
>audio between -22 and -18? Thats aweful quiet.
Nothing indicates that when you talk about Leq values. Leq is a sort of average number telling what kind of constant sound level that could substitute the measured sound. Maybe not very well explained, but here's a VERY simplified example:
A train passes close to your house two times a day, that's noisy as hell, but since it's only twice a day it doesn't bring much to the average of noise for the whole day.
To topic: To increase the Leq level, adding gain would do it, but then make sure the peaks don't get to high. For a start, it could maybe be an idea to play with the dynamics effect (before gain is added).
