wvgain.exe: is there a possibility of a lossy normalization mode also?, [TOS #5] From “wvgain converts ID3v1 tags…keep them as ID3?” TID:90293

Maybe it's a bit bold to come back to this topic again, and to make a request.. blink.gif ohmy.gif
However, since WavPack has a lossy mode in addition to the normal lossless mode, would such a lossy mode not be a good option for WvGain, too? To let the user decide whether he/she wants a truely lossless increase of the sound volume or accepts a slight degradation of the audio data?

The background of my question is that some of my audio CDs (in particular classical music) have very weak sound volumes. The most CD rippers offer a "normalization" but not in album mode. And that's the problem, because you do not want the titles belonging to a classical work to be equal in volume. Only album mode makes sense with such music.

Presently, I must rip this music to wav files, then use wavegain in album mode to increase the volume and then convert the files with WavPack. I think that's a very inconvenient procedure.

@db1989: you are right, of course, sorry!

@bryant: You are also right smile.gif . But only if some other circumstances are neglected. E.g tagging (now we are back to my original question). I usually rip with EAC directly to wv and add ID3V tags. If I could adjust the volume with a single run of wvgain, that would be finished. Now I have to rip to wav, adjust with wavegain, then insert tags with a file tagger (I'm not very good at tagging from the command line) and, finally, uff, convert with WavPack.

Well ok, I see your point, of course and I guess it would be a lot of work. So I will accept what I get - and that's very much! Thanks for your excellent work with WavPack!
