About VolumeLogic
Authored by: c15zyx on Apr 08, '05 01:24:57PM

Uhm, there is a significant difference between SoundCheck/Replaygain adjustment and what VolumeLogic does. VolumeLogic can do a better job in making sure all parts of the music are equal volume, but it will *destroy* the dynamic range for more quiet passages of songs. To preserve the dynamic range as it was originally intended, you adjust the perceptual gain for the whole file/album, not specific passages within songs. ie. One song has a louder part followed by an intentionally softer part... normal gain techniques keep this difference, but with VolumeLogic it will applies compression on the softer segment to maintain volume, even though that's not how it's supposed to be!
