Me again.

Any chance we can implement a write with replay gain output, specifically track gain..? Used to do this with Fb2k, but I have been mac only for years...

Trying to make a mix and to be able to load a track in to the window and have the output be a wav file with replaygain- track gain applied.

Many thanks.

Does the "add flac replay gain" in the util tab not do what you need?

Thanks for getting back to me. No, it does not because it simply adds the info to the metadata, which is what we want in most cases...


But to make a mix of various sources, I would like to add track gain, and then write a wav file with the gain applied, not simply write a flag with the metadata included...

Thanks.

A linear calculation to raise levels to a selectable threshold would be cool. Maybe I want to max at -0.0, maybe -0.1, maybe -0.2!?? This could replace the "normalize" step in some folks' workflow. It could also be useful when converting older filesets to a favorite jukebox filetype. (e.g. convert to aac128 and set max levels at -0.2!?)

I <3 xACT!

yes. With the track gain, not album gain...

Thanks so much!

Bump.

I actually just used home brew to install flac and i can do this from the terminal window / command line using the "apply replay gain which is not lossless" command.

Sorry to have bothered you, and Again, thank you very much.

Hello Scott! I would like to bump this topic because I have a feature request.

Could you please implement something like rsync so that I can use xACT to securely move files from my sd card, with verification?

Thanks for all the great work! For reference, I'm currently on xACT v2.44, under Yosemite, or perhaps I'll try my High Sierra install if I have to.

This is why I have started making MD5 checksums on the original files on the SD cards. If a FLAC operation could go wrong, so could a file transfer (copy).

You know, those files on your hard drive are COPIES of the masters, unless you are saving the SD cards or something!?

To be truly paranoid, I would want to run the checksum operation twice on the original to be sure that THOSE are the same.

My reasoning ,no matter how perfect it  is  (flac) I’d prefer the wav vs flac. Flac is compression ,and things *can go wrong*  would you rather have a dat master Or a dat clone? They are identical but most people would choose the master I think.

You basically want an rsync wrapper to choose a file or files to read and a location to copy to?

Yes, please!

"rsync" would probably be it's own new tab, and have radio button check box options for the user to control a few of the key flags? (recursion, delete original, etc)

The main thing I'd be looking for is some sort of verification feature, but the rsync manual page seems to indicate that rsync does what I would want as a matter of course!
"rsync always verifies that each transferred file was correctly reconstructed on the receiving side by checking a whole-file checksum that is generated as the file is transferred"

I guess it would be cool to spit out the stats in a new window, in case the user wanted to copy them down or save them.

xACT is already indispensible, but this would be a very handy feature for me. Thanks!!
