    Replaygain apply on pre-existing MP3 files

    Hi, I have many Mp3 files purchased online which do not have replaygain tags. How do I scan them for replaygain in dbpoweramp, and then apply replaygain, without transcoding? I know how to do this when I am converting formats only. But if I don't convert formats and just scan them, is it possible? I know how to do this on foobar.

    You can scan and write ID Tags without reencoding (look at utility codec 'Replay Gain'), it is the players job to apply replaggain when playing the file.

    Can you please explain the process. Once I put the files in the converter, don't I have to change the format to something else to make this change? Also, how about if I want to apply replaygain without changing the mp3 format?

    In foobar, this can be done by 'scan with replay' and then 'apply replay'. But I want to do this in dbpoweramp

    No. Download and install the Replay Gain utility codec from here: dBpoweramp Codec Central: Utility Codecs

    Once in converter, you can select [ReplayGain] from the Encoding dropdown.

    Also, can someone please tell me if i need to turn on soundcheck in my ithing for the itunes album or track normalisation to take effect? or will turning on soundcheck change the levels? If I'm not mistaken, the foobar ios player will read replaygain tags by DEFAULT instead of me having t turn anything on?
