Subject: RE: unique, automatically loaded EQ for each song
From: Eriq Jaffe (EJaffe_at_itsgames.com)
Date: 2003-09-30


MP3Gain doesn't re-encode the files, so that's not a problem. If you
process the files using the "Album Gain" setting, the files are normalizes
relative to the other tracks on the album, so you shouldn't lose the
relative context.

Also, MP3Gain is lossless, as it simply stores the volume data in the
header...so it's reversible.

Personally, I coulnd't live without MP3Gain. Granted, most of my tracks are
rock, so there's a lot less quiet-loud dynamic to deal with. But when you
consider how loud some CDs are mixed, it's a terrific tool.

doesn't that involve reencoding though?

either way, it involves changing the file itself. you can't listen to a song
in a global playlist, normalised, then decide you want to listen to that
album, with each song in its original volume context (can't think of the
proper way to say that, but you get me).

We need to be able to store something in an extended id3v2 tag that holds
the normalisation info. Even if it involved running an external app over the
files once, then rockbox reads this extra tag, that'd be excellent.

I use a program called MP3GAIN that adjusts mp3 files to a specified dB
level.

That arses up the natural feeling of listening to them as albums though. AND
it'd take ages. AND you'd have to reencode them all, losing quality.

Winamp does (did?) a thing where you can set an eq for each song, it's
loaded from a database in the WA folder.

Either doing it like that, or adding a custom id3v2 tag would work, i'd
imagine.
