Wxmp3gain's reversible changes that I'm looking for is identified here:
And the unique lossless algorithm normalization I'm looking for is identified here:
This is because my apps don't read replaygain tags, but they do recognise mp3gain's edits (which I can reverse if I want to).

Hi everyone!
I'm sorry if this has already been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer. I wanted to know why some albums seem to have multiple TOCIDs, even though CTDB treats different pressings as the same album.

I verified a rip I've made of one of my CDs and CTDB verified it as "verified OK, confidence 4". A friend of mine has the same CD and his rip was verified as "verified OK, confidence 41", with a totally different TOCID. I'm not sure if we have different editions, but could that be the reason?

Thanks in advance.

  • Yes, I would do it myself if I had the knowledge. I don't.

Default Win dark themes are unusable, however there are many free OS-level options that are usable (and easy to try):


User laziness shouldn't be a developer's concern.

Modifying a whole OS User Interface to achieve dark mode for a single app might be the contrary of user lazyness... but it surely is using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

As a developer, I'd be more concerned about people having to do this just to get my app in dark mode.

The text in bold might appear important to you as an end user but they're unlikely to sway any developer. And popularity votes probably aren't going to help either.
edit: just tested mp3tag and notepad++ since I use them already.... damn they're fugly in dark mode. No way I could stick with either of them

The text in bold is there to highlight what for me is a sign of lagging behind most other developers/apps.
If developers are swayed or not by any of this is up to them as always has been. I'm just reminding them once more that everybody is giving a dark theme to their programs... and there must be a reason why unless all of them are idiots.

The voting is there for everyone who feels like stating what's their stance on this. I expect few votes and no clear winner. We're in a forum that is mostly visited by advanced users and people with some kind of technology background. Basic users either go with what they've got... or they're already using a dark mode player  8)
Even massive Yes or massive No wouldn't mean a thing if you care for giving options to your users,

That you may stick with dark MP3tag ot notepad++ might appear important to you but in any case they're better than a blindingly white app in an otherwise totally dark desktop. They, at least, try to do it, and they finetune the UI colors often if they receive negative feedback.

That experiment shows a louder source file via ReplayGain.
And the poll shows Bass being the difference. Is bass more even compared to non-bass heavy tracks with EBU vs classic?
Semantics aside, wxmp3gain is considered lossless. Is foobar normalization lossless or not?
Other than that, are foobar changes reversible like wxmp3gain?
