Does the coverter have this bug if the custom setting is NOT used? IE if you just choose FLAC from the built in settings?
The four de-facto RG tags isn't shown in fb2k's "Properties" dialog, but fb2k still parses them and lists the gain and peak values in the "Properties" section of the "Properties" dialog. FLAC's ReplayGain implementation also sets a "REPLAYGAIN_REFERENCE_LOUDNESS" tag in addition to the four de-factor RG tags and since fb2k dosen't recognice that tag as being a RG tag, then that tag is also listed among the other non-RG tags in the "Metadata" section of the "Properties" dialog.
Seeing as though Linux can handle the wildcard expansion and FLAC can takes its own format as input, I'm looking at running a simple command line to run through my entire directory structure, but can't find out how to make the command recursive.Any clues how to do this easily people, I have about 350GB of FLAC's I'd like to convert to 1.1.4 -8
find /path/to/flacs -name '*.flac' -print0 | xargs -0 flac --verify --best --force
I know a lot of people have asked in this thead and elsewhere why the FLAC home page had not yet been updated to reflect the FLAC 1.1.4 release (the reason being explained already by Josh).Well I am happy to report that today the FLAC home page got its 1.1.4 update:http://flac.sourceforge.net
Why is FLAC still getting so much more attention by software & hardware developers than WavPack?
Unfortunately, the download link (at least for the Windows installer) is still 1.1.3b.
Well that's the thing. The four RG tags that fb2k usually shows in the 'Properties' tab of the 'Properties' dialog are missing. That's what doesn't make sense. The REFERENCE tag is in the metadata section, but no actual RG tags are present anywhere that I can see. Remember this is flac 1.1.4. I think everything was OK with 1.1.3 when I tested it out.NOTE: Mp3tag sees the 4 actual RG tags in the 'Extended Tag' info. Why not fb2k then?

I've noticed that playback with the in_flac.dll that comes with Winamp 5.33, which uses 1.1.2e libraries I believe, sounds different than with 1.1.4 in_flac plugin. The best way for me to describe the difference is that when I playback .flac files with the 1.1.4 plugin, it sounds as though the equalizer in Winamp is turned off, whereas with the 1.1.2e in_flac, the equalizer settings apply (which makes it sound better on my speakers). Am I missing something here?
