Hey Anyone,
For the past 2 years I have been using Media Monkey to Organize and play my music collection which is now about 42,000 tracks about 75% of my collection has Replay gain Values....I am making the switch over to Foobar2000 and was about to replay gain the other 25% with it (Foobar) when I discovered that for the same album I was getting 2 different values...and it is making me wonder does Media Monkey use a different algorithm or is there something I am overlooking...both are set to tag by ALBUM with the track value put in there also. Here are my results: blink.gif

Miles Davis /Jack Johnson Soundtrack/ crying.gif crying.gif
Trk1 Right Off -FOOBAR--Album Gain -1.97db Trk Gain -2.49db
Trk 2 Yesternow-FOOBAR Album Gain -1.97db Trk Gain -0.87db

Trk 1 Right Off Media monkey--Album Vol=-7.9db Trk Vol= -8.4db
Trk 2 Yesternow Media Monkey--Album Vol= -7.9db Trk Vol= - 6.8db

Could someone shed some light on this for me.
Thank You

I had to register here to say thank as well! I am a MM user for the last 3-4 years and was curious as to what(if any) differences were with MM, Replay Gain/MP3 Gain.

I had posted a question on MM forums right before we left for Hawaii, and my question branched off a bit. Here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic...f=1&t=52653

David's Q & A session on this thread seemed to answer most of my questions as well. Although, can MP3 Gain(Level Track Volume in MM) be done more than once to a track or is it better to go to a different db level from the original untouched tracks? I was thinking of going from 89db currently to 93db.

Thanks, and thanks to the OP for starting this thread!
