Lossless adjusting of loudness for MP3 and AAC files
Authored by: oink on Apr 09, '05 12:24:11AM

I encountered something strange with this program and my ipod shuffle. I ran it this morning to batch process my 200 or so aac files using just the -r switch. Later in iTunes, I expected to see various volume adjustments within "get info" but they all showed no adjustments. Uploaded some files to the ipod shuffle and they either crashed the ipod, hanged the ipod, or shuffling through silence song files, basically no sound was heard and I didn't seem to be able to do anything but turning it off. I initialized it twice and eventually figured it might have been the adjusted files. I tested it with freshly encoded files from CDs and they work fine on the ipod shuffle. I am trying to undo using the -u switch but it only works with some of the files. Can anyone else confirm this?

it is important to use -t option when processing files for use with iPod Shuffle. You can undo tracks rendered unusable by:

aacgain -t -s d <track file>

Or you can use scripts as I prepared end mentioned them in one of my posts.
