Track which is converted very quite, why?

Hi,

I can leave more information later, anyone having an idea? From FLAC source, I convert via latest opus with "--quiet --bitrate 160 --vbr --ignorelength - %d"

No processing.

The resulting Opus file has -11db peaks (according to Ocenaudio wave editor). If I do a quick convert to wav, the wav file has -2db peaks. The strange thing is, it does only happen to one track of the album. The others are converted loud. ?!?!

Maybe someone has already an idea... Must be my fault.

thx

I suppose that Opus decoder in Ocenaudio applies ReplayGain.

Will analyse more precisely and report back, thx.
Oh, how did I write "quiet" 😕

Mystery solved after a quick test: The Ocenaudio decoder applies Opus Headergain value, which is set to -13db on this file. Wasn't expecting that, IMO a wave editor shouldn't do that - just display the pure and raw wave file. But I guess it's a library thing and the developer isn't even aware. Will report.
