should I disable on-the-fly burning in K3B to allow volume normlization?

While trying to burn a CD from individual tracks (WAV files), I found a volume normalizing option in the advanced tab. I clicked it, but K3b said I didn't have the needed program, so I installed it. Now it says "K3B is not able to normalize...when burning on the fly. The external program used for this task only supports normalizing a set of audio files." Apparently I can use on-the-fly or volume normalization but not both. What is on-the-fly burning, and how would the CD burning be affected if I disabled it?

'On the fly' as and when needed in realtime. It might be better to disable it. Allow all file pre-processing to be done first, then burn the results after. Plus you would be able to check the files before burning to make sure they sound ok.
