Hello folks,
I don't know if anyone else is using this "trick"
I rip my CD's one file per album
after ripping I replaygain the wavefile and let foobar modify the cue-sheet
the modified cue-sheet is used along with the compressed wave
this way is somewhat faster than replaygaining the ape or flac
and results are identical, consequently

have a nice day

Interesting idea. That replaygaining the wave is faster than the APE/FLAC is logical, because for replaygaining, the entire file needs to be decoded - this obviously is faster with WAV than with a compressed file. Since APE/FLAC is lossless, the result will be identical.

How do you let fb2k modify the cuesheet?
And how do you let the Replaygain info be saved?

Couldn't figure out, how to get replaygaininfos into my tags (using ogg - should however be unimportant?!).

Has somebody a hint for me?

the cue-sheet points after ripping with EAC to the wavefile
load the cue in foobar, replaygain (as album)
the cue is modified, lines starting with "REM..."

this is special for my purpose
i load the ape and add a cuesheet tag to add the replaygained cuesheet
whenever i load the ape, the album gets expanded with correct replaygain
i keep a copy of the cue-sheet without replaygain for fast burning with several apps

DON'T use anything but lossless codecs, since the replaygain-info
will be inaccurate for lossy files this way
if you want to have correct results with lossy files you have
to process the compressed files,
the process should be the same, anyway

yeah, I've been ReplayGaining wave files and then encoding to APE Extra High for some time now. It does save quite a bit of time.

I don´t use cuesheets etc., but EAC+APE, replaygained.
I modified the "wapet"-ape-tagging tool to do replaygain. It uses the original wav file to calculate replaygain and writes the result toghether with the other stuff in the tag of the ape file. It´s a lot faster than ripping ape first and then replaygain with foobar, and also more easy, because file gets automatically replaygained during ripping.
I posted this tool over a year ago:
