QtGain
Audio
Score 72%
Description:

QtGain is a simply frontend for MP3Gain, VorbisGain, AACGain and Metaflac which analyses and adjusts your media files so that they have the same volume without the need to reencode the files. Further information about this lossless method can be found at the MP3Gain homepage (http://replaygain.hydrogenaudio.org/) or Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replay_Gain).

With QtGain you can simplify this job to replay gain your media files. Simply add your files or folders via drag & drop or select a folder with a file dialog. QtGain starts gaining immediately after adding some files and of course you can add more files while QtGain works on your files.
Files which are already gained and need no recalculating are automatically skipped. Files which cannot processed are automatically listed in a dialog box at the end of the job.

I have included in the new tarball a .desktop file as well as the missing program icon and a makefile. I think that are all necessary files but I can visit the irc channel when I have time.

It would be nice if QtGain could tell you which files were skipped and perhaps why.

Hi and sorry for the late reply. QtGain skips only files which are already gained and there is no need to recalculate the replay gain. Files with errors are automatically listed at the end of the current job in a dialogbox which also shows the type of error.

Ok that makes sense though Id still think it would be nice if the dialog box showed both errors and skipped files.

Ok, I added this feature in the upcoming version 0.82. You can switch logging of skipped files on/off in the preferences dialog.

Hi, can you add 'flac --replay-gain' support?

Thanks.

Hi,
I just uploaded a new version which can replay gain Flac files. You must install metaflac which should be included in every package of Flac.
Have fun!
