Lossless adjusting & iPod Shuffle
Authored by: jctull on Apr 11, '05 05:15:54PM

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.
