General - (fb2k) / Re: Boosting volume above 100%?
Last post by bols59 -
I may have done this the wrong way, but here's a screenshot of how I figured it.  The volume does seem louder.  I'll have to experiment with it, but it's deffo a step in the right direction.

Is there any way (Via addons or otherwise) to make foobar automatically add replaygain to files when they are played/added to the library and don't have it?
And related because it could turn into an issue, why doesn't foobar give 0.0 values when something like this happens? It seems counterintuitive to make it seem like replaygain wasn't scanned when the file simply doesn't need it.

2. I thought that I only changed tags in my music collection, then it was possible to make those corresponding changes to the same music in my iPod? Correct me if am wrong about this?
AFAIR no, when you sync only the updated files (since the previous sync) are actually transferred.

Unfortunately I'm unable to check as I've had no success using this plugin with the latest iPhone generations. Maybe if musicmusic is resuming his work on foo_dop I can hope... :)

@TheEmpathicEar: You don't have to synchronisze anything. You can just files "send to ipod" or "delete from ipod". That's one of the great benefits of this tool.

If you change meta in your hdd-collection and want them to be changed on your iPod as well, you have to resync these files. But you can also change meta directly on your iPod, and to make these changes visible you have to "update metadata".
Ok. I thought there might be a way to avoid "Synchronizing" the entire collection - that is, if you only change "meta" as you put it. "
Synchronize", adds/deletes, music files, as I understand it.

@musicmusicmusic
Let's start over. I am confused.
1. I am just changing some tags in one album in my music collection on my hard drive. Normally, if I added/deleted music to it, then I would use "Synchronize" to add/delete music on the iPod.
2. I thought that I only changed tags in my music collection, then it was possible to make those corresponding changes to the same music in my iPod? Correct me if am wrong about this?
3. I always thought that the "Synchronize" function was rather slow because it has to check EVERYTHING in your music collection and then reflect those changes on the iPod.
4. Anyway, I thought it was possible to just change some tags in the IPod that correspond to those changed in the music collection? IOW, w/o having to a complete "Synchronize" to the iPod?

No, it wasn't changed recently. It's been there ever since I started dabbling with foobar2000 well over 10 years ago and was probably built-in from the beginning.

Dude it's been already one hour? Anyway, can't modify and I just read this "Name of the artist of the album specified track belongs to. Checks following metadata fields, in this order: “album artist”, “artist”, “composer”, “performer”. The difference between this and %artist% is that %album artist% is intended for use where consistent value across entire album is needed even when per-track artists values vary." and it answers all my question about the tag. I don't know if this was changed recently but it works wonderfully.

That sounds really fantastic. I downloaded your code a few days ago and tried to read in a little bit - but to be honest: that's a bit more than my scripting skills allow ;) So I'm really glad you found a solution^^.

If you're about to rediscover your work, may I give you a request for a small update: would it be possible to add one or two fallbacks to the artwork source script? So that the plugin searches one after the other (for example "cover; folder; front") and integrates what is found first as artwork. But please don't feel obliged, that would be the only point I noticed in the handling. Otherwise the plugin is just perfect, the on-the-fly-conversion is absolutely ingenious.

I'm looking forward to managing the new ipod as easy and fast as all its previos ones :))
