Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

You can create custom playlist columns for displaying the ReplayGain info.
Foobar2000 can adjust the volume on playback or when converting using the ReplayGain data.

Track Gain

Track Volume (-18dB is equivelant to the ReplayGain target volume of 89dB)
$if(%replaygain_track_gain%,$puts(X,$sub(-1800,$replace(%replaygain_track_gain%,.,)))$puts(VOLUME,$ifequal($get(X),0,0,$ifgreater($get(X),0,$replace(+$substr($num($get(X),4),1,2),+0,+),$replace($substr($num($get(X),5),1,3),-0,-))).$substr($num($get(X),5),4,5) dB)$get(VOLUME))

ReplayGain's Track Volume (89dB is the dumb way ReplayGain's target volume is officially specified)
$if(%replaygain_track_gain%,$puts(X,$sub(8900,$replace(%replaygain_track_gain%,.,)))$puts(VOLUME,$ifgreater($get(X),9999,$substr($get(X),1,3).$substr($get(X),4,5),$substr($get(X),1,2).$substr($get(X),3,4)) dB  ))$get(VOLUME))

Album Gain

Album Volume
$if(%replaygain_album_gain%,$puts(X,$sub(-1800,$replace(%replaygain_album_gain%,.,)))$puts(VOLUME,$ifequal($get(X),0,0,$ifgreater($get(X),0,$replace(+$substr($num($get(X),4),1,2),+0,+),$replace($substr($num($get(X),5),1,3),-0,-))).$substr($num($get(X),5),4,5) dB)$get(VOLUME))

ReplayGain's Album Volume

Please write a script to search for images in the "Covers" folder, which is located in two versions

1. In the same folder with the album
2. One level above the album being played, when listening to a two-disc edition, it is located in the album folder


And I also want to set up the viewing of the artist's photo, which has the name of the "Images" and is located in the artist's folder, along with other folders containing albums

If the title of the album (which is very common) contains notes (CD1), (Limited Edition), (Instrumental) extension issues "No matching results were found". how to reconfigure the script to cut off the tail of the phrase?
General Audio / Re: MP3Gain Not Delivering The Results I Had Hoped For

I had been using MP3Gain for many years. Just a week ago I finally got bugged enough and decided to abandon MP3Gain as a levelling tool. I found the levelling was not working well with some songs and it got to be too disturbing. I appreciate the loudgain tip hydroplane as I don't have a solution for CD's but had decided the unlevelled sound was better than MP3Gain.

I download a lot from the site Often in the tags of the files, there is incorrect information about the year of publication, as an option, the year of the reissue is simply added, but this does not suit me. I edit folders by discography and then send to player and change tags

As for the naming of albums with explanations in the name - information about the album from the site is not loaded and lyrics are not loaded, if the name has no clean

No idea where the MQA is exactly embedded but it doesn't seem so easy. There is mqascan and MQA identifier for detecting it but MQA identifier seems to miss some files where mqascan does detect it.
Maybe you can find a post Mans Rullgard the mqascan dev describes its working.

Think over whether you have more than one version of a particular (double/triple) CD. For example, you might want to have

Led Zeppelin\1975 Physical Graffiti `1987 1st CD press´ ¶1
Led Zeppelin\1975 Physical Graffiti `1987 1st CD press´ ¶2
Led Zeppelin\1975 Physical Graffiti `1994 remaster´ ¶1 
Led Zeppelin\1975 Physical Graffiti `1994 remaster´ ¶2

sorted in that order. Here I use one folder per physical CD, because that keeps order of rip log files etc, and makes for easier retro-verification using CUETools. I delete the discnumber or total discs tag if it is a 1CD release. I also used different separator characters than "-", because that is used so often in actual metadata. You can also consider use ^¨~§£µ¬, it depends a bit on your keyboard layout. "~" is not far from safe either. Beware that ¤ is often identified with other currency symbols like $.

Also consider "9999" as a placeholder year for e.g.
Led Zeppelin\9999 various rare tracks bootleg

As an option, I would like to see your design-add the name of the third nesting folder to the name of the second folder and enclose it in parentheses
