REACT 2.0 is not backward compatible with version 1.0. This version is more powerful, easier to use and configure. It uses only two configuration scripts: REACT-image.cfg, and REACT-track.cfg. Image mode (F10) is recommended, as it may be used for creating both an image and tracks, and is a little more robust. With Nyaochi's excellent ACDIR, it will split the image to tracks while encoding. You can pick and choose from which formats you want by only editing a few characters in the .cfg file. See examples below.

NEWS
  • Only one configuration file for each mode (image/track).
  • Simpler user-configuration, located in first section of .cfg file (Alt-F3).
  • Built-in support for CoverDownloader (albumart.exe). Runs when hitting F10/F4. Alt-F10 for CoverDownloader only.
  • Adds cover pictures to FLAC (with 1.1.3beta) and MP3 by using my new tool, metamp3.exe
  • Optionally scans and tags ReplayGain for all formats. May also apply album gain on MP3/AAC files.
  • Writes ID3v2.3 ReplayGain tags on MP3's (Winamp/Foobar compatible), via metamp3.exe
  • Should fix random REACT exiting, reported by some users.
  • User may now minimize EAC while ripping (EAC will auto-restore when ripping done, and save log).
  • Accepts both "Various" and "Various Artists" as compilation disk.
  • If CreateAllCuesheets=1 is set in INI file, and EAC is set up to extract to a fixed directory, REACT will save all types of cuesheets when hitting F4/F10. Cuesheets can be accessed from scripts by @albumfile@ variable. E.g. "@albumfile@.[mg].cue"
  • The (unsafe) @islast@ variable for track mode is not supported anymore. Use @track@==@numtracks@ test instead, or image mode.

Meddler: You're welcome.

1) metamp3/mp3gain and foobar has different implementations. I think there will be no audible loudness differences.

2) metamp3 is similar to mp3gain, but writes ID3v2 tags instead of APEv2. REACT applies albumgain by default, and adjusts it by 3dB to 92dB, so that it can be played back on every DAP with consistent (and sufficient) loudness. The UNDO tag is there so that you may undo the gain applied with metamp3 --undo-gain <files>.

Edit: You will notice that all your mp3's will get album gain of about -3.0dB (relative to 89) because of the default settings.

If you don't want to apply album gain, set ApplyAlbumGain=0 in the REACT.ini file.
If you don't want replay gain tags at all, set ReplayGain=0 in the REACT.ini file.

phaedra: Thanks, I will update the wiki soon.

Does this mean that ApplyAlbumGain "changes" the mp3 file as opposed to just tagging it? My DAP handles replaygain through tags anyway so I'd rather leave the files alone as much as possible.

Thank you for your swift response and your software, saved me a load of time writing a VB program wink.gif
