Hi there, I'm converting part of my collection (FLACs mainly) to mp3 using LAME 3.98.2. When I convert a loseless file using the --clipdetect switch, it says some info in the end about detected clipping. It also shows me a value I could use to reencode the file in order to avoid clipping.

The question is, in your opinion, should I reencode the files (as I still have the loseless ones) using the --scale switch to avoid clipping?

Thank you very much for your time and answers.

Is that an automated process or do you do it manually?

I once found a VB script here in HA (I think its name was flac2lame.vbs or something...). I used that for quite a while...

It destroys the relative dynamic levels of tracks per album and can ruin the whole feel of an album in my opinion
Yes, of course, I'll apply replaygain-album values just because of that! So the resulting mp3s have an album gain of 0dB and various track gain values.
