MP3GAIN


#1

Could somebody explain to me how MP3gain works within MP3tag.
I have insatlled it as a tool and it runs ok but the command prompt screen closes before I can see the results.
Does it pupulate a field in MP3tag?


#2

WHo knows? But you can check in the Extended Tags dialogue (press Alt-T).

Second, if you try to use that program from within MP3tag: how did you include it?
Have you checked, what kind of parameters have to get handed over in the command line?


#3

When you process an Mp3 file with MP3Gain it writes an APE tag, so make sure you check the APE box under Read in Mp3tag.

I use Foobar2000 to do tag-based ReplayGain for both track- and album-leveling (NOT hard-coding the new levels in the audio encoding itself) and IMO that's the way to go.

I believe it uses the native ID3/Vorbis tags for MP3/FLAC respectively rather than APE.
