Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

You're talking about the Tags > Mpeg option screen?
If you've only got ID3v1 selected in the write area, then are you only writing ID3v1 tags?

 

Apart from that I already use those settings (it's basically the standard config in MP3Tag I believe). I always put in the lyrics into the ID3v2 tags (using the 'UNSYNCEDLYRICS' field, and I also put the CD cover (max 50KB) into the ID3v2 tags. I'm not sure whether you do these things.

 

My feeling is that the changes made by Sansa in this latest firmware have basically broken the MP3 ID3v2 tag handling with 'large' tags (being that I have the lyrics and the CD cover in there). Not only does ReplayGain not work for me for most tracks (as its not even detected that they're present), but many albums no longer display the CD cover, and even in albums which do display the CD cover, various tracks do not. This was not the case on the previous firmware (but I don't wish to go into firmware downleveling to do further testing on that).

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

First of all, when importing things into windows media player (which is what I use to sync my fuze) there's an option there to "apply volume leveling labels to all files." Isn't that exactly what I'm looking for? Why do I have to use media monkey?

@ mmike. "Song" means it will use the track gain values instead of the album gain values. You'd select "Song" normally only if playing mixes and playlists etc. Listening to albums with "Song" selected can give weird results - which is what I should get with my After Forever example. The fact I don't get a weird result is what indicates an issue with the Fuze in that example.


 

If I understood this correctly, then why should you get weird results when playing albums on "song" mode? Wouldn't that just make all the songs on the album the same level? Usually they already are pretty much on the same level so you don't really need it, but why would you get a weird result?

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

I try to use replay gain on my Fuze, and it goes to a white screen and locks up??? I have version 2.02.28A of the firmware installed...Everything else seems to run smooth...I flashed the firmware twice to make sure it was not a bad write...Any ideas?

You're not the 1st to report this problem with the latest firmware update. Could be a bug with the most recent release. Until they (SanDisk) gets it sorted out, it might be prudent to 'back-date' to the previous f/w version.

Another 'Just updated firmware....replay gain choice locks up my player.'

 

..if anyone is keeping track of it.

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

In addition to the "+" bug, it seems to be dropping zeros.  That is, a gain of "-2.03" turns into "-2.3".  Is anyone else seeing this?

My Fuze also has the replay gain problem of going to the blanc screen. Also if I select 10 seconds on the backlight timer it goes to blanc screen.

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

Windows Media Player supports autoleveling.  Any idea if WMPs implementation is compatible with the fuze?

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

OK, I'm new to the Fuze AND to Replay Gain AND especially to Media Monkey.  My Fuze contains about 3 GB of music.  I'd like to apply the Replay Gain feature, but I haven't a clue how to proceed.  Here's what I've done so far:

 

Downloaded and installed Media Monkey

Transferred entire music library to Media Monkey (I was using WMP)

I analyzed the volume levels for all the music by leaving the process running overnight.

 

Now, the question is:  how do I upload just this new volume/replay gain information to my existing sets of playlists on my Fuze?  I have no clue. 

 

I've done everything else without the Fuze connected to the computer, and I have generated a long list of Replay Gain values.  So how do I update just those values on my existing music?

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: Replay Gain: A how to informational

I guess that Replay Gain will only level a number different tracks processed through some program like MediaMonkey to a similar loudness level so that it feels like “all files are created equal”, but it will not provide some weak single silent MP3 (lame) files with additional power since it supposedly doesn't change the original audio data.
