Hey Anyone,
For the past 2 years I have been using Media Monkey to Organize and play my music collection which is now about 42,000 tracks about 75% of my collection has Replay gain Values....I am making the switch over to Foobar2000 and was about to replay gain the other 25% with it (Foobar) when I discovered that for the same album I was getting 2 different values...and it is making me wonder does Media Monkey use a different algorithm or is there something I am overlooking...both are set to tag by ALBUM with the track value put in there also. Here are my results: blink.gif

Miles Davis /Jack Johnson Soundtrack/ crying.gif crying.gif
Trk1 Right Off -FOOBAR--Album Gain -1.97db Trk Gain -2.49db
Trk 2 Yesternow-FOOBAR Album Gain -1.97db Trk Gain -0.87db

Trk 1 Right Off Media monkey--Album Vol=-7.9db Trk Vol= -8.4db
Trk 2 Yesternow Media Monkey--Album Vol= -7.9db Trk Vol= - 6.8db

Could someone shed some light on this for me.
Thank You

Well, maybe somebody can do that.

I learned a lot through doing ReplayGain. I've since sat on real standards bodies and been involved with real IPR. Nothing exciting, but still... there is a difference between something that's published by the IEC, and something that someone decides to post on the internet. De Facto standards end up being more important than what's written in the latter case.

Cheers,
David.

First to "2bdecided" thank you so much for all the WORK you have done on "Replay Gain" now and in the past...Thank you for downloading MM and checking things out....If anyone wants the opinion of yer average Music Freak/Computer Geek here it is: Replay Gain is cool!!!Especially so with the current LOUDNESS wars going on . It deserves to be standardized across the board and YES I believe there should be an UP to date Web site or Wiki with ALL of the important info explained in plain English (ie. Not just Geek Speak) Again thank you ,when I started this topic I never dreamed it would still be going 10 days latter with the developer of replay gain contributing. wink.gif smile.gif wink.gif
