    Replaygain and high-res audio?

    Anyone aware of any initiatives to implement replaygain for higher resolution audio - I've got a few 24/96 albums in my collection and replaygain isn't supported. Seeing as things will increasingly move in the direction of higher resolution, wouldn't it be appropriate for RG to support same?

    Linux finally gets a great audio tagger: puddletag - now packaged in most Linux distributions.

    I have many 24/96 files with RG tags (FLAC) and they work fine... why do you think it doesn't work?
    You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...

    Using Robin's script I get
    Code:
    ERROR: sample rate of 96000 Hz is not supported
    Looking at metaflac's arguments:
    Code:
    --add-replay-gain     Calculates the title and album gains/peaks of the given
                          FLAC files as if all the files were part of one album,
                          then stores them in the VORBIS_COMMENT block.  The tags
                          are the same as those used by vorbisgain.  Existing
                          ReplayGain tags will be replaced.  If only one FLAC file
                          is given, the album and title gains will be the same.
                          Since this operation requires two passes, it is always
                          executed last, after all other operations have been
                          completed and written to disk.  All FLAC files specified
                          must have the same resolution, sample rate, and number
                          of channels.  The sample rate must be one of 8, 11.025,
                          12, 16, 22.05, 24, 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz.

    So I'm guessing this is out of the replaygain spec or is this one of the few tweaks that Josh may need to make to METAFLAC?
