Would it be possible to calculate the dynamic range of tracks and the album as a whole during CD ripping and write both the track and album dynamic range values to appropriate tags. I would then like to create a container within Asset so that I can sort albums based on dynamic range (or ranges say DR10 - DR15 etc).
Anyone else interested in sorting by dynamic range?

I came across a few sites the other day after someone on a music forum mentioned dynamic range day and the loudness wars cessation campaign.
There's a dynamic range database site which has listings of albums with the dynamic range of the album.
There is a link to a tool for another audio tool which uploads to the DR database.
The database could do with a bit of work to make it more searchable
The upload tool could do with a lot of work too.
Academic really, as I'd rather stick with dBPoweramp Asset
(Not sure T&Cs allow me to post other sites & tools.)
I was thinking as dBPowerAmp /Asset suite is becoming a de-facto standard ripping and streaming tool for those with high end audio systems (Naim, Linn etc) and that high end audio community would be have a greater than average interest in dynamic range this would be something that could be incorporated into the dBPoweramp suite and maybe the metadata providers.
Re: Dynamic Range
Sorry to bump and old thread, but this is what came up in a search.
I was just searching for a way to do this as it would be a nice way to look at different mastering of albums.
