View Full Version : (Kinda) Replaygain for internet radio stations?

I set all of my local MP3 to around 89dB with MP3Gain. Obviously internet radio stations are much louder. So if switching from normal MP3s to radio, I have to lower the volume quite a little.

So I wonder if it would be possible to use a (kind of) replaygain feature for internet radio stations. Maybe even one replaygain value for every (favorite) station. But for the beginning, one global value would be nice.

That's not possible. ReplayGain data is stored
directly in the MP3 - specifically, at the end of
the file.

You'd have to have some way of inserting it in at
the end of the file, but:

- since you don't originate the file and you can't
modify it as you send it to your Squeezebox, this
isn't possible

- since it's a streaming MP3, i.e. one with no
end, there's nowhere to put the ReplayGain data

The program MP3Gain will actually modify the MP3
to force its playback at the ReplayGain corrected
level, but you'd need to modify the file in
real-time. MP3Gain can't do that.

Sorry.
