New loudgain audio replaygain 2.0 (EBU R128/BS.1770) tagger available

loudgain is a command line loudness normalizer that scans music files and calculates loudness-normalized gain and loudness peak values according to the EBU R128 standard. It can optionally write ReplayGain 2.0-compatible metadata and implements a subset of mp3gain's command-line options, which means that it can be used as a drop-in replacement in many situations. It currently works for FLAC, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 files and can thus replace mp3gain, vorbisgain and metaflac.

loudgain defaults to the ReplayGain 2.0 standard (-18 LUFS, "dB" units) but can do a lot more. It is freely available on GitHub and distributed in source code. Self-compiling it on a modern Linux system is easy, though. A special prebuilt binary for older Ubuntu-based Linuxes (pre Ubuntu 18.04/Linux Mint 19) is also provided.

Will test it. Noticed that foobar2000 doesn't accurately compute Replaygain (Winamp and Flac computes same value and foobar differs).

Maybe that’s due to Winamp and metaflac (flac) still using the older RG1 algorithm. Foobar already uses RG2 (EBU R128 based).

Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to any test results (and probably bug reports—please use the issue tracker).
