Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I’m having trouble finding out much about MP3Gain 1.3.4
Does anybody use MP3Gain?
Apparently an old App that “levels” the track volume, or gain.
I’ve found some old information about it’s use but haven’t found anything informative enough.
I listen to a lot of different music and want any one song to be more or less as loud as the next. This seems to do the trick but when I set a high db level older recordings that aren’t nearly as dynamic as say Tool indicate that they are clipping. Does that make sense?
There has to be a happy medium but if I assign a lower db number newer recordings seem to have the guts ripped out of them, but if I assign a higher db level the older recordings indicate that they are now clipping.
Also the screen indicates several pieces of information that I don’t completely understand. The information breaks down to:
And depending on the relative volume (db) assigned clipping is indicated as occurring in either the clipping category, the clip (Tack) category, or the clip (Album) category. The indication either goes away or appears depending on how the track is leveled.
How do you get all clipping to go away while maintaining a reasonable volume level?
