Hello,

I have recently used wavpack to increase the sound volume of some wv-files. I observed that the ID3V tags of the files were converted to ape tags - which I do not like at all. Is there a possibility to maintain the tag format? In the user documentation for wavgain there are no command line switches at all that have something to do with tags...

> Is there some reason you need the ID3v1 tags?

Not really. I'm simply used to them and they serve my purposes.
But your answer seems very important for me in another respect. Do I understand correctly that WvGain does not modify the data values but adds some metadata to the ape tags? This would be different to WaveGain (http://wiki.themixingbowl.org/WaveGain). Does this mean that an audio CD burnt from these WavPack files would not be affected by these changes in sound volume? Sorry if this is a silly question... sad.gif
