Thanks to westgroveg, we have a brief summary of today's possibilities:



QUOTE (westgroveg @ Aug 16 2004, 12:28 AM)
This thread is always coming backup so here a few extra hints for users
  • Album analyses  calculates track/album values so performing an album analyses is all you need to do.





  • MP3Gain now supports writing changes to ID3 tag so it is 100% lossless, ie. completely reversible.





  • As of LAME 3.96 (track) replaygain values are automatically written to the lame tag,





  • Unlike MP3Gain, values stored in the lame tag need to be applied during playback which requires more CPU processing & the decoder to be aware.





  • Foobar can automatically scan & adjust replaygain values without any need for MP3Gain but of course some of us don’t like this audio player.




  • One more thing, make sure, you tag before using replaygain or instead of your replaygain values being hidden they appear in the comment field for some reason which can be annoying.

Here is a very short and simple description

How to Stopping Clipping in Mp3 Files for Newbies

written by westgroveG




This has been answered by Snelg/User (see post above) but I think this will simplify it for beginners.


"Clipping" is when the music hits max volume and gets distorted.

To permanently remove clipping and keep volume differences between each track on an album you will need Mp3Gain:

http://privatewww.essex.ac.uk/~djmrob/mp3g...FULLinstall.zip

Open MP3 Gain, adjust:

Options\Each Folder Is Album (tick)

Options\Advanced\Enable Maximizing Features (tick)

Then do an Album/Radio Analyze,
If Any Mp3 file in Mp3gain has a "Y" (yes) under the clipping bar then, Go to the "modify gain" menu, "Apply max no clip gain for album".

If you only want to modify files with clipping and don't care about keeping volume differences between each track on an album you "Apply max no clip gain for each file" instead of "Apply max no clip gain for album".

And that’s it, now your files have no clipping distortion.






What do you do if you want all your MP3's to have the same volume irrespective of the source album?

auldyin


PS.

This would complete the instruction. (I am at work at present and cannot recollect what to do.......its almost automatic now and I'll be damned if I can remember what I did)






Answer by westgroveG


To get all your files to have the same loudness,

Do a Radio Analysis,

In the, Target “Normal” Volume Field choose the Volume all your selected files will have (default 89dB is recommended),

Then do a Radio gain.


If you would like your Mp3 files to be as close to your Target “Normal” Volume as possible while maintaining volume differences between each file on an album you simply
Do a Album Analysis instead of a Radio Analysis & a Album gain instead of a Radio Gain.

And if any file still has clipping you should lower the Target “Normal” Volume value.

B.TW This is Basically answered in the Mp3Gain Help file. If you are unsure of anything else you should probably refer to it first.
