Lossless adjusting of loudness for MP3 and AAC files
Authored by: atverd on Apr 07, '05 12:01:50PM

You may put it in your Home directory and call as "~/aacgain" from Terminal. Or if you want to call it from Desktop call it as "~/Desktop/aacgain" .

The best way would be to create "bin" directory in your Home and add this line to the end of your ".bashrc" file in your Home dir:
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin


Then copy aacgain to that "bin" and after restart of the Terminal you should be able to run it as simple "aacgain" without specifying full path. And you may put other command line tools and scripts to that "bin" directory in future.

Thanks for the compile of this app. However I notice it is version 1.2.0 but the aacgain site has the latest as version 1.3. Can you do a recompile using the newer source code? Thanks again.

1.3 is not that much different from 1.2 (1.3 assuming -t as default now and some other small changes) and it's not ported to Linux yet, so I cannot just compile it for Mac - it would take a bit more time and I don't want to mess with source code which I don't understand. Actually I was waiting for that 1.3 and after it's release and few questions to it's author I decided that 1.2 is fine for now.
