    Re: [ReplayGain] Utility Codec Release 3

    Just ripped a 7 track CD to flac with the following Replay Gain Settings:



    If I batch convert the resultant flac files using the Replay Gain Codec I get a couple of warnings:

    Information converting to [ReplayGain], 'F:\FLAC\Artists C\Cameo\[1985-05] Single Life\1.07 Cameo - Little Boys-Dangerous Toys.flac' to 'F:\FLAC\Artists C\Cameo\[1985-05] Single Life\1.07 Cameo - Little Boys-Dangerous Toys.IGNORE'
    Warning: Normalisation gain would have resulted in clipping, gain has been reduced to prevent this: Loudness=-20.02LUFS, Gain=2.02dB, Maximum True Peak=-1.00LUFS, True Peak=-0.20LUFS, New gain=-0.80dB [clDSP::EndConversion]

    Information converting to [ReplayGain], 'F:\FLAC\Artists C\Cameo\[1985-05] Single Life\1.05 Cameo fea. Barbara Mitchell - I'll Never Look For Love.flac' to 'F:\FLAC\Artists C\Cameo\[1985-05] Single Life\1.05 Cameo fea. Barbara Mitchell - I'll Never Look For Love.IGNORE'
    Warning: Normalisation gain would have resulted in clipping, gain has been reduced to prevent this: Loudness=-19.70LUFS, Gain=1.70dB, Maximum True Peak=-1.00LUFS, True Peak=-2.39LUFS, New gain=1.39dB [clDSP::EndConversion]

    These warnings are only appearing when using Batch Convert and not CDRipper. Please advise?

    Which gain value was calculated with CD Ripper? the same final one?

    -18

    Here are the values calculated with CDRipper:



    When re-calculating using Batch Convert/Replay Gain Codec, the calculated values are exactly the same, but the previously mentioned warnings appear.

    You have CD Ripper set to show the information log after ripping?

    OK, I only had Display Error Log ticked and not Display Information Log.

    So, I have 2 more questions.

    1. Can we have these warnings written to the Extraction Log?
    2. Can you elaborate on these warnings, as I am not sure why I am getting them?

    1. Not possible
    2. They are very minor warning, RG works by calculating an average volume for the track then it sets the desired amplification, if this amplification causes any clipping of samples it is reduced (as in the case here).

    What I mean is, why do only I get the warnings when using the EBU R128 standard. If I calculate without EBU R128 there are no warnings. As I understand it, the older RG standard uses -14dB for headroom, so why no warnings?

    The older RG did not warn when it re-adjusts the gain value.

    I'm sure you worked this out for yourself already, but when you click convert, after selecting ReplayGain as the converter, hit Add in the Options section and select Add DSP Effect -> Preserve Source Attributes.

    Ignore that. It doesn't seem to work, 'Modified' time stamps get changed, only 'Created' and 'Accessed' time stamps are preserved (or put back).

    I tried to cheat by selecting multi-encoder, adding no encoders, but still adding ReplayGain and Preserve Source Attributes as DSP options, but this seems to write nothing to the file.

    Is there a workaround Spoon?

    Album gain would be written right at the end after any dsp effect so it is not possible to bypass that.
