Thread: Volume Normalization

  1. #16

    Re: Volume Normalization

    Have you considered utilizing a ReplayGain mindful player for these records (there are numerous all the players I use, LMS, squeezeboxes, foobar2000, Roon Labs). Thusly you could just include ReplayGain labels (collection and track) to the documents and the player would utilize these to alter playback volume, yet the genuine sound in the records would stay immaculate. (ReplayGain labels are essentially labels like some other metadata label, for example, ARTIST, ALBUM, and so on.). You can include RG labels in a mass way utilizing BPA and the ReplayGain utility DSP.

    You are correct and having a player that supports RG is the ideal. However, there are more players and systems that do not support it than that are supporting it. Also for use in the car (at least my BMW does not support RG), the applied gain is a good solution. For that purpose I also don't mind "touched" music data.

    Particularly if you also maintain an archival library that hasn't had the audio modified. Then you can have your main library and a second library for use in autos and other portable devices.
    edit: by the way, one doesn't really need two libraries. One can use something like TuneFusion (by makers of dbpa) to create different versions of files "on the fly" for use in, for example, automobiles. I use TuneFusion to create lossy versions from my FLAC files "on the fly", and could easily include volume normalization in my settings.

    Actually, that is about what I do. I have everything that I own (CDs) ripped as FLAC with dbpa and use a lower quality MP3 version with applied RG for the car and a high quality MP3 for home devices. Since the home device I use (now) also supports FLAC, I could of course use these, however with ignored RG tags since its not supported.
