Should I normalize audio tracks?
Audio should be normalized for two reasons: 1. to get the maximum volume, and 2. for matching volumes of different songs or program segments.

When should you normalize audio?
When to Normalize Your audio should come out sounding the same as it went in! The ideal stage to apply normalization is just after you have applied some processing and exported the result. Compression, modulation effects or some other process may have reduced your gain. Normalization can help you here.
Should I normalize audio before mastering?
Mastered tracks should need no normalization. The limiter ceiling dictates the max peaks. If you’re not getting the loudness you want, then your issue is with the dynamic processing as a whole – not simply max peak level, which is what most normalization processes dictate.
What dB should I normalize to?
So you can use normalization to reduce your loudest peak by setting the target to just under -3 dB, like say -2.99 dB.
