I'm a fairly new user to MP3tag (and love it!) and I'm trying to use it to increase the volume on one of my flac files. From what I've read, I should be able to increase the value of the replaygain to increase the volume however I tried this with no luck. The original values in the file were:
replaygain album gain-1.02 DB
replaygain album peak-74163818
replaygain track gain-+0.56
replaygain Track peak-74163818
To try and increase the volume, I first changed the "replaygain track gain" value to +0.96 but that had no effect so I then tried changing it to +1.86 but again no effect. I then tried changing (one tag at a time) the rest of the tags to:
replaygain album gain-4.02 dB
replaygain album peak-74193818
replaygain track gain-+1.86 dB
replaygain Track peak-74193818
again, none of these changes had any effect in the flac file I was trying to increase the volume on. Should that have worked? I read a few posts regarding normalizing flac files and they all recommend converting the file to an MP3, changing one of the ID tag values (I forget which) and then converting the file back to flac but I was hoping to get around all that.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!
