The Play Dot Sound site makes a good case for decibels. I don't remember why the current tag format was chosen. The gain could have been a straight multiplier too. Maybe the extra digits near fullscale are helpful when doing EAC-style peak level comparisons to determine likely identical masterings. But as the float values get smaller, they are increasignly hard to visualize (in the bitcompare tool the difference values are always small).
I'll confess I don't get it. I understand the need for backwards compatibility. There must be at least five MP3 players on the market capable of reading ReplayGain tags. The data written to tags is one thing though. Couldn't fb2k display volume in both formats while ReplayGain fades away? It seems virtually inevitable to me.The peak level statistic isn't really related to loudness normalization, except in the name chosen in Vorbis/Ape. The player can derive the required format regardless how it is encoded in the particular format. Renaming the tags serves no purpose. I prefer that the original loudness normalization standard remains.
For those that want to know, the SAE 5000 was an analog-only device with a bucket-brigade delay line that purported to "substitute" a snippet of audio immediately after a click was detected by momentarily bypassing the line. Or something like that. I used one back in the 80's. It turns out that the delay line is only 100 microseconds long, so the amount of substitution would be pretty limited. I think that was the sales pitch and in actuality it did more limiting and muting than anything else.
Will check link, thanks!

Ok, got the issue, sorry I didn't remember about this, the problem is that the 600x600.jpg doesn't get copied over with "* Copy other files: 600*.jpg;..\600*.jpg". "..\600*.jpg" seems to not be working there. Is there a way to make that work?

So, now I'm not sure why Case said it didn't work for him.
But I understand power functions are needed to do that, in which case it's impossible to implement via the regular FB2K title formatting strings, right?
What accuracy do you need, really? I mean, the -1.5 dB to -0.5 dB interval - which you possibly could round-off to "-1" dB? - is 0.84something to 0.94something.
Above you had a -1.12, so I take it that integers are not satisfactory. But are integers good enough if it is beyond ... -6 dB?
(fb2k can calculate powers: $mul(3,3,3,3) gives you 3^4=81. But it requires integers. And rescaling to integers and doing high powers before downscaling ... overflow. So it has to be coded a bit carefully.)
Off to research whatever JScript Panel is...
Good idea ... thread: https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,110499.450.html
SweetVinyl SugarCube SC-1Since it operates in realtime, there is no way the algorithm(s) applied can be as sophisticated as those available in a host of other non-realtime restoration products. (Well, not unless SweetVinyl have discovered some extraordinary approach that has eluded dozens of other restoration engineers over the last couple of decades).
“a designed to digitally remove pops and clicks from any record in real-time. playing older records like they’re brand new”
In any case, it admits to working in the digital domain, so that'll put off the hardened vinylphiles.
