Lossless adjusting & iPod Shuffle
Authored by: blubbernaut on Apr 10, '05 09:26:13PM
iVolume is a lot easier to use (with options to auto detect albums) and works only on the tracks you have currently selected in iTunes. It also remembers which tracks its already analysed, so it doesn't spend time redoing it (unless you ask it). AND most importantly the adjustments get carried over to the iPod shuffle. Make sure you select the iPod option. That means the when played in iTunes, the adjustments aren't as good, but at least your eardrums wont bleed when listening to the shuffle!

Lossless adjusting & iPod Shuffle
Authored by: jmdennis1967 on Apr 11, '05 03:47:52PM

This may be easier but it also cost money to use this program for more then 20 songs. I for one like the other program being free and if you have already done the gain on some songs you can just select the songs you have not done this one and do it on those all for free. I like the look of iVolume but have not really tried it since it will only do 20 songs. I used the free applescript that was written and this seemed to do a great job for me so no need to use iVolume.

I paid for iVolume some time ago, but prefer the aacgain approach because (1) it's free, (2) it seems to be more actively developed, and (3) there is not need to futz around with Apple's volume slider bugs with the iPod. Number 3 is a huge pain in the arse. Further, I seem to detect distortion in songs adjusted via iVolume/iTunes Volume Slider.

Number 4 would be the fact that I host my songs on a separate server volume that I access via AFP (either on a LAN or via ssh tunneling on a WAN), and I like being able to run a command line tool to do the work on my server without my attention being required. I execute the command from within 'screen', then I can detach it and let it run without requiring an active ssh connection.
