But it is on the list...
But in your example, isn't foobar going to increase all tracks by +4db, rather than a target db level?He said, "+4 LUFS to target".
Also, wxmp3gain is documented to make lossless edits, by altering the volume on the actual file without transcoding. Are you sure it's not lossless?I agree, It's only a loudness change and it's reversible.
Also, how are you calculating ReplayGain to New ReplayGain? Is there a chart, or conversion table, for each number?I've done an experiment and I don't remember the results but I'll trust Markuza that there's a 107dB difference between the Acoustic SPL level and the digital LUFS level. I assume this is with pink noise. With real music there isn't an exact correlation because they use different equal loudness curves and/or a different reference SPL level and it will depend on the frequency content.
I want to achieve either 75db, -14 LUFS (Spotify standard), or 89db.It's a compromise and a lot of people complain that 89dB is "too quiet". On the other hand if you go to 93dB a lot of your tracks won't be touched unless you allow clipping. At -75dB you might still have a few tracks that can't hit the target loudness if you don't allow clipping. You're also never going to get "perfect" loudness matching because your brain doesn't do this kind of "analysis". You might have one song that starts-soft and ends loud or vice-versa and your brain/perception will do "funny things". Or you might "hear" heavy metal louder than classical when they are really the same volume. Two different people might not agree when two different songs sound equally loud.
I haven't decided which one because I want to allow enough headroom for clipping and listen to all genres of music.
I cannot edit my previous post. Here's a visual guide how to achieve what you are looking for.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)1. Scan the files.
2. Update tags.
3. Open the converter menu.
4. Adjust all the settings that you want. Now click on "Processing".
5. Adjust ReplayGain settings like this. (Example for -14 LUFS)
Now you can convert your files and enjoy. If you still need help feel free to ask.
I've played-around with some of these tools in the past and they were easy to fool and I recently downloaded Bitter (which I tried in Audacity). MP3s from ripped CDs show about 30-bits (which is true depending on the MP3 decoder).bitter can't even survive simple dithering, let alone mp3.
My software cannot survive lossy compression either, but for basic operations like volume adjustment and dithering, it works.
