"Archive tester" is a UI project I started last year to help myself with the testing of numerous archive files across multiple disks/paths. I think that it may be useful to other people so I recently made it a little cleaner and made it available.

Originally, it tested *.rar, *.7z and *.zip files. Recently I include support for more types supported by 7z.exe, and the support for *.flac files. *

It is still a very fresh project and (constructive) feedback is welcome.

You may find it at:

* You need to give it the path to flac.exe and 7z.exe in the Settings tab. Requires .NET 4.0+. Tested with 7z.exe 16.04 [64], flac.exe 1.3.2 win32/win64. UnRAR.exe is included in the application files.
In fact, I have another request, right click on an audio file inside foobar2000 > Convert > Long list of unscrollable settings other than with a left click in the bottom arrow. Peter, is there a way you can enable the mouse scroll button there?

Automatic scanning would no doubt be possible to implement but it could easily cause issues. You can't for example album scan if you only add individual files.
Storing ReplayGain value 0.00 dB would mean the file's loudness already matches the ReplayGain target level. A file that is nothing but silence is quite different. Original ReplayGain specs suggested storing such error case as "not set". Leaving the adjustment value empty but storing peak tags signals exactly that.

You've already posted in a previous discussion about how it isn't possible...  ;D,110516.msg919089.html#msg919089

I guess you could code in ES6 and transpile it with something like babel? Just don't ask me how. I'm aware of it but I've never used it.

Now that you're using Windows 10, might you consider looking into updating to ECMAScript 6?

Yeah sorry for that, I am always super busy so sometimes I have more time to play around stuff and discover simple things that didn't notice earlier and get me excited, that's another reason I come every now and then and I post 10 different things I try to change then I disappear again for few months.

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.
