Hello,

I downloaded Burrrn today because it seemed like a really simple, focussed but good burning app. I wanted to burn my first album from a bunch of FLAC files and noticed all the ReplayGain, Dithering etc. options. I was in dubio:

1-There were default options (medium dithering etc.), and since I'm no audio-expert of any kind I wanted to trust the person that made Burrn that he put those options on default for a reason...

2-But: if I buy the album in store, there wouldn't be any dithering either or not? And if there would be, it would already be in the FLAC's so there would be no reason to add it another time would there?

So what do the "professionals" here do? Add dithering and stuff or not?

Please don't go around telling other people that they are wrong, unless you are absolutely sure that this is the case, and which in this situation it isn't! Gambit is of course correct and so am i! Either you enable ReplayGain or not in the main window and then you can controll the behavoir of this ReplayGain processing through the preferences dialog under "ReplayGain" and hence, if you don't select ReplayGain processing in the main Burrrn window, then the different options listed in the ReplayGain page under the Burrrn preferences is completely ignored.

D'oh...and thats my problem. The options are completely ignored but still I can select them and change them...and that's bad, wrong, UI design. Maybe I want dithering enabled, so I select it and think it's OK when actually I have to tick another box before it'll actually work...so it gives the user the illusion he/she can change the options when actually he/she can't...so you and Gambit are wrong, concerning the UI.

So because you can't figure out how to use the program/ui correctly, someone else must be at fault? Seems logical to me ermm.gif
