You can see one post above yours where your complaint should go. It's wasted here.

This plugin has one annoying bug, in grouping mode it doesnot regard album artist. This leading to treat each single track on more artists albums as separate album. Causing race conditions on r/w operations (especially multitrack albums). Should enable a custom grouping pattern similar like replaygain scanner uses.


Regarding this bug, it indeed confuses artists on albums with track artists.
But it does not try to simultaneously read multiple tracks of the CD ! Maybe you should update your foobar2000 ?
And also, I advise to uncheck the Group playlist items in Preferences (CTRL+P) > Advanced > Tools > Dynamic range meter.
Only this way, the log file for an album with multiple track artists will be complete.

That's right, however the option of mass scanning is not available (I use always the latest foobar build anyway).

You mean you can’t scan several albums at once ? Well maybe but I don’t know as I only scan one CD (scanning CD itself in CD drive) at a time.

Not a very smart suggestion. If you uncheck this and scan several albums at once, all albums will be assigned the average dynamic rating across all albums.

You have doubts on my smartness but I said I scan CD per CD (CDDA, not FLAC, MP3, etc.). I have no such problem you describe. wink.gif
Anyway I said itís the only way and I think itís still true. If you donít do that a single album will be split in as many as you have distinct track artists.

I use right-click show log as it cannot write any file on an Audio CD.
You can try that.

Would this tool give sensible results if used on a 6-channel track? How does it calculate a DR?
