    Replay Gain Clarification

    Hi,

    I am trying to better understand Replay Gain and the reference point that it works to in terms of "volume". I have read the answers to a recent post which implies that EBU R128 is perhaps the...

    Re: Gapless CD won't finish playing!

    I think the CD player is fine. I used Batch Converter to convert the MP3 files to WAV and used the DSP "Remove Silence". I then used Nero to burn an audio CD without the 2 second gaps and it created...

    Re: Gapless CD won't finish playing!

    My normal hi-fi (Sony) CD Player which has never had issue with any CDR/CDRW disc.

    However when testing on my PC in both Nero Showtime & WMP, no issue. The problem is I need to play it in a CD...

    Gapless CD won't finish playing!

    Hi,

    There is a similar issue in another thread but having read it closely I don't think this is entirely the same. I have MP3 files that I want to burn to a gapless CD (fitness music for teaching)...

    Re: FLAC Compression Levels

    Indeed that's what it seems to be! Still no harm in using level 8 and it saves a little bit of space.

    FLAC Compression Levels

    I was not sure whether it was most appropriate to post in this or the Ripping forum as it sort of applies to both...

    I have been ripping to FLAC for the last month at the default compression...
  9. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    Well I redid the lot tonight! I was doing batches of circa 200-300 at a time and no problems.... until I did a batch of 398 when only the first 80 or so tracks had Album Gain added. I redid them...
  10. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    Sorry, it might be a daft question but before re-doing all the "missed" ones, can someone confirm my assumption above? I did test one album and it seemed to end up with the same Track Gain so...
  11. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    And unfortunately it seems there was never any real resolution to the problem which means to be sure I'll have to run every folder individually :( So match for batch processing them all and I thought...
  12. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    Yes, every single album has unique album tags, written originally with CD Ripper, tweaked with with Tag & Rename and double checked with MP3Tag & Foobar. I have been very meticulous about my tagging!...
  13. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    Ok, so I chose both and let dMC work through about 3,500 files in total. I used the Utility Codec and yet on checking the files, some only have Track Gain applied.

    Why would this happen when every...
  14. Re: ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    Fair enough... I am sure I can live with 88db!

    What about checking Album and Track gain though or should I just pick one or the other?
  15. ReplayGain Utility Codec - A couple of questions

    I now have about 75% of my CDs all ripped to FLAC and despite some earlier conversion issues, everything has gone extremely well. I am learning more and more about dbpoweramp and it really is an...

    Converting to MP3 (Lame switches & options)

    I have been encoding at 256kps CBR which to me appears to give a slightly less clinical sound than VBR. However once I start encoding some of the households slightly less aggressive music (i.e. not...

    Re: FLAC>MP3 Tag Mapping

    Yep, well spotted. I didn't realise that was an option I could change :o


    I am thinking I might just go with this option because I have lots of instances where titles are longer than ID3V1 tags...

    FLAC>MP3 Tag Mapping

    Notwithstanding my problems encountered last week with some odd tag issues, I do have a further simple(!) query.

    When ripping to FLAC, the options in dbpoweramp configuration state:

    Re: Volume Normalization

    I shall do! It's certainly the best way to learn about these things and I suppose if more and more software & hardware devices support ReplayGain tags and do read the ones we have found, it's easy...

    Re: Volume Normalization

    Think I might have a reason....

    I think just by loading in files and analysing them in MP3Gain, it writes (fake?)ReplayGain tags so next time you load them in it does not need to re-analyse...

    Re: Volume Normalization

    It's odd isn't it!

    My settings for ripping/converting are pretty much default, I am using both XP SP3 & Vista SP1 (same effect on both) and I have not used any DSP effects since I have been using...

    Yes they do but I thought they used the result of using the algorithm to change the file itself and then include the "undo" information as tags not use actual ReplayGain tags to achieve the desired...

    Possibly!

    If I right click properties and display the dbpoweramp audio properties it says:

    Contains: Album Art, ReplayGain, ID Tag [APEv2 & ID3V2.3 etc]

    If I look at the ID-Tag information I...

    I assume you mean that it changes the actual characteristics of the file rather affecting the sound (listening) quality?[quote]

    Re: Problems with Conversions (Flac>MP3)

    It looks like I can salvage my MP3 files by using the following procedure:


    Copy ID3V2 tags to ID3V1 tags
    Remove all ID3V2 tags
    Copy ID3V1 tags to ID3V2 tags
    Add back Album Art
