"reset on new track" in cue file
« on: 28 May '07 - 13:01 »
When playing an image file + cue shouldn't the "reset on new track" affect sub-track changes? currently it affects the whole image file as one track.

I'm not sure that'd be a good idea. For example, when playing a continuous mix with a CUE sheet, you probably wouldn't want the level suddenly changing/resetting.

You can argue the opposite as well : if the cue sheet consists of tracks with different volume levels (as is the case with many album images) you wouldn't want one track level to stay to next one.

Maybe the behavior should be binded to the replaygain selection : when 'track' replaygain is selected the reset will happen every sub-track change; when 'album' replaygain is selected it will be reset at the end of the image file. what happens when replaygain is switched off - you decide. ;)

With replaygain in effect, the amp should be left at the same level throughout anyway :)

Note that there is only a single "track" and/or "album" replaygain level stored in a file (in case you were thinking that there are individual levels for each cue point).

I am using track replaygain along with autoamp-reduction for files without replaygain info. This is why I thought about linking the autoamp behavior to replaygain selection but I guess it is not good enough as a generic solution.

Note that there is only a single "track" and/or "album" replaygain level stored in a file (in case you were thinking that there are individual levels for each cue point).

I was only referring to the auto-amp reduction and 'fade-in & reduction' when talking about reseting amp after each track but because  you mentioned it... ;)

here is an example of a cue sheet with replaygain info for each track :

I am using track replaygain along with autoamp-reduction for files without replaygain info. This is why I thought about linking the autoamp behavior to replaygain selection but I guess it is not good enough as a generic solution.

Since 3.4, auto-amp is automatically disabled when replaygain is in effect, unless you adjust the amp yourself (at which point auto-amp will kick in).

here is an example of a cue sheet with replaygain info for each track...

Well, that's me told then ;)

I've not seen a CUE sheet with replaygain info before (not that I've been looking). Do you know what they're created by, and are they fairly common?

The replaygain info was written to this cue sheet by foobar. I don't know how common it is .
