    undo mp3gain tags - how?

    I've understood that MP3gain volume levelling can be undone by removing the tags, but can anybody tell me how to do this exactly?
    I have noticed the 'remove tags' option in the program, but when removing the tags the track does not seem to be restored to the original level.
    When re-doing the MP3gain operation, I see that the starting level of the tracks still is the MP3gain level (I use 88 for this), and not the original cd leven (sometimes > 94).
    So probably I'm overlooking something?

    Your help will be appreciated very much

    Oops. Don't remove the tags first - they contain the undo information.

    You'll want to undo the gain, then remove the tags.

    Use the undo function in MP3gain ( /u switch in Windows). This has a very interresting side effect: The gain adjustment in the file will be undone and the replay gain tags will be updated and can still be used! If you had a tag with -0.5dB after treating the file with MP3gain, you will have something like -8.5dB after running MP3gain with the /u switch.
