Free RMS match/normalize program?

I'm looking for a freeware program that can normalize audio to a certain RMS value. Something I can explain easy how to use for musicians.

Its for mastering evaluation so one can compare the mix to master without the loudness difference, simultaneous playback/instant soloing of the 2 tracks would be nice too.

Someone recommended a jsfx plug-in for reaper but thats probably too cubersome for a musician to setup and understand. Any other suggestion is welcome.

Maybe something like foobar2000 would work for you?

I'm glad to hear it has been useful for you!

I'll second the Foobar2000 nomination, and add that their iOS app also has replaygain as a built in option, and it makes it pretty easy to apply normalization to the entire library.

I'm pretty sure the latest release of Audacity has a loudness feature built in. RMS and LUFS. It's listed on the release notes but not in the manual yet.
