Not MP3Gain as it crashes under vista 64. But if anyone knows of anything that does the same thing? Cheers.

Best to do it while ripping it, then I suggest EAC, should have this function I think.

When ripping is all fine and well, but what about existing collections?

I used MP3Gain as well, prior to Vista64.

just reading up on mp3Gain,

(ive never had reason to use something like that -- maybe coz i tweak my volume a lot without noticing it? or because this is generally for playing mp3s over speakers???)

and i'm wondering, does it let you pick a preferred level for all your songs? to have much effect on your whole collection this would probably have to be a fair bit lower than maximum to allow for some headroom. so i guess this program spends most of its time lowering volume, rather than the opposite.

music with a lot of dynamic range is going to sound softer than most contemporary stuff which typically features slammed to the shithouse brickwall compression, so the only way it could match its loudness to former without being destructive would be to turn it down. this would be fine if youre re-amping it, but it could suck otherwise, with the wrong set of headphones in a noisy environment.

assuming you can set it to max -- just like 100% normalising -- is there really that much music out there with maximum peaks well below 0 dB FS ?

It's nice to have all the music at the one level. MP3gain doesn't change your files which is what I liked about it, it just adds info to the tags (I think).

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Virtualbox + 32bit OS + MP3Gain :P

This is of course assuming that no one else comes up with a suggestion.

Rob.

by someone called 'nohr' from anandtech:

"MP3Gain 1.2.5 has been working for me on Vista x64 for months. I'm not using compatibility mode or anything like that."

Try that release, or keep googling. there are TONS of tips to get it working on vista.

Yeah funny, I did a small folder this morning and it worked but when I try the whole collection, it scans al the files fine but then borks when applying the changes. I have another google in that case. ;-)
