depends. that's peak normalisation. what you probably want is loudness
normalisation, which adjusts the levels so that the perceived loudness
is constant across tracks.

in a presentation i heard recently, the presenter played a metallica
single, in direct comparison to pink noise at full scale. the metallica
mix was significantly louder. go figure...

that is a funny definition of normalisation.

like julien suggested, use a standard peak normalizer and then attenuate
by 0.3dB )(if you are sure that's what you want to do).
