I recently upgraded my setup to 6.2.1 for SS and fw28 for SB2. I am enjoying the new Random Mix feature, but would like to know if there is away that SB2 could auto-adjust the volume since my FLAC files across CDs have different volume levels.

TIA,
EarthBased

This is possible if you use ReplayGain on the FLAC files. You have to set SS to use the track gain (not album gain) value to get the equal volume on randomised tracks...

I create my FLAC files using dbPowerAMP and to my knowledge it didn't (doesn't) have a ReplayGain feature. How can I add this metadata to my existing FLAC files? Also, can this tool add both track ReplayGain and Album ReplayGain so I can use track when using RandomMix and Album when doing album playlists?

Thanks,

If you're OK with running perl scripts from the command line, have a
look at my apply_replaygain utility:

There are ways to do this in programs such as Foobar 2000, and the command line utility in FLAC itself (I think its called metaflac?)
Both track and album gain can be calculated and used accordingly by slimserver (I think thats the SmartGain function, see here: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?AutomaticVolumeAdjustment )
