View Full Version : FLAC replaygain tutorial please...

Hi there,

Could someone please give me a step-by-step guide on how to use replaygain with FLAC with my squeezebox2?

I know how to get the tags into the FLAC files. No problems there. I've read about adding a config line in a file .... but I get lost in the instructions...

Could anyone please give me a step by step tutorial on how to set up FLAC replaygain (no cue-sheets, album gain) with my squeezebox2

I know how to do it with squeezebox1, I can make a guess with squeezebox2. I assume you want to use flac decoding on the hardware itself.

Create a file called 'slimserver-convert.conf' in the base directory of your slimserver install (in the same directory as convert.conf). In this file place these two lines:

flc flc * *
[flac] -dcs --force-raw-format --endian=little --sign=signed --apply-replaygain-which-is-not-lossless=a --skip=$START$ --until=$END$ $FILE$ | [flac] -cs --totally-silent --compression-level-0 --endian little --sign signed --channels 2 --bps 16 --sample-rate 44100 -

Now restart slimserver and give it a try. Again, this is just a guess but I hope it works.
