    Spotty with ReplayGain

    When listening to a Spotify playlist containing recent recordings and recordings from the eighties, there’s a clear difference in volume.

    All of my players are set to “smart gain”. When playing back local files, the volumes are similar, so I think this is a Spotify-specific problem.

    Additionally, for each player I have ReplayGain enabled in the Spotty options. (Aside: It took me a while to find this option, and I’m not sure that it’s helpful for it to exist. I feel like it should default to on if ReplayGain is active for the player)

    I notice that running “ps” mentions “spotty --enable-volume-normalisation …”, which seems correct.

    Any ideas? Does anyone have this working?

    I don't think that replaygain works (fully ?) with Spotty if you're using the native OggVorbis support. If you disable spotty -> OggVorbis on the FileTypes menu, the stream will be transcoded to FLAC and then it works OK.

    Thanks, this was helpful. After some additional experimentation, I found that it also works when playing to a group of synced players.
