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.
