Thanks A_Man_Eating_Duck, but my point is not about volume change, this I just used it to verify impact on final encoded file.

My point is whether this sequence is correct:

    FLAC > WAV or PCM (not sure) > RG and/or Preamp > Active DSPs > Encode to AAC

And if correct, then the quoted wiki part is wrongly written.

General - (fb2k) / Editing Metadata after creating Cuesheet.
Last post by Le Croissant -
I hate editing tracks in EAC so I just rip the CD with whatever metadata the inbuilt provider generates (even if there is none).
Then I edit the album in Mp3tag and fill in all of my mucho autismo detailed tags.
And I don't mind the EAC logfile displaying the wrong name, because I can just go by track number.

TL;DR:
I'm guessing all of the Cuesheets are worthless after editing the metadata?
If so how can I generate New Cuesheets with the correct tags?

AAC / An AAC decoder with detailed structure output?
Last post by greg f -
I'm looking for an AAC decoder that produces extremely verbose output down to each field of one or more bits in each frame's structure. While I'm sure tools that can do this exist, I don't know of any, or if any are available to the public. Can anybody point me in the right direction? The tool doesn't have to be open-source or free. I'm interested in considering any options.

Thanks in advance!

When applying replaygain you are altering the volume of the source when it's being encoded to the output format.

Under the other menu there is an option to replaygain-scan output files as albums or transfer replaygain info which will keep the file volume the same as the source but write the replaygain info in to the tags.

The Hydrogenaudio Wiki Foobar2000:Converter page states:

Quote
ReplayGain
    Select the relevant ReplayGain settings to apply to the converted content. This will permanently apply the change to the output file.
DSP
    Apply the effects of any available DSPs to the converted content. Again, this will permanently apply the change to the output file.

Can anyone confirm the Wiki quote about RG is incorrect or what am I missing?

Thanks

Use Room EQ to measure the frequency response of your room with a few different settings of your sub. Compare the resultant "unprocessed" frequency responses. The best setting of your sub corresponds to the flatter "unprocessed" frequency response.
