Hello,

I downloaded Burrrn today because it seemed like a really simple, focussed but good burning app. I wanted to burn my first album from a bunch of FLAC files and noticed all the ReplayGain, Dithering etc. options. I was in dubio:

1-There were default options (medium dithering etc.), and since I'm no audio-expert of any kind I wanted to trust the person that made Burrn that he put those options on default for a reason...

2-But: if I buy the album in store, there wouldn't be any dithering either or not? And if there would be, it would already be in the FLAC's so there would be no reason to add it another time would there?

So what do the "professionals" here do? Add dithering and stuff or not?

I'm just bringing this up to say that leokennis is absolutely right.

I wanted to burn some flacs to an audio cd, and a little bit of googling brought me to burrrn.

I don't want replaygain.
I see a setting under the replaygain page that is on, and I don't know exactly what it does.
I google burrrn dithering and I am brought right to this topic where people who know a lot about dithering are arguing that it doesn't need to be changed.

This is poor UI design, it should be changed. I could have just looked, saw that replaygain was off and all relevant settings were inaccessible and not have had to research whether or not I was going to screw up one of my CDs. That's the way it should be; I've read your arguments against, and they read like "you're dumb we're elitist, we don't need to improve the usability of this program".

Really the UI template for ALL windows programs with checkboxes are: if it's disabled, it's greyed out; so there is no illusion that the setting will have an effect on the output.

Simple as that. No context, whether it be CD burning, video conversion, ANYTHING: no context whatsoever changes the fact that this is how it should be done.


Consider this a bug report / feature request; that is all.
