Do Banjo Kazooie and Tooie need re-ripping as well? Already have someone using the lazyusf1 based plugin because the new one crashes or locks up or something.

Kazooie is perfectly fine afaik, but Tooie has two songs with issues: Mayahem Temple and Glitter Gulch Mine Dark n Dingy Interior.

To back that statement up, yes, Banjo-Kazooie is fine.

Banjo-Tooie needed re-ripping anyway as all the songs have a cutoff at the beginning (like DK64 had until it was re-ripped)

Could lazyusf be updated to adhere to the volume tags inside the USF files if they're present? I just noticed some sets adjusted in Winamp play back at their original volume in foobar2000, ignoring these tags.

Hi, could people instead be asked to ReplayGain scan their sets before uploading them?

None of my xSF inputs obey the volume tag, as that is user configurable, and not automatically probed, and if the user does ReplayGain scan their own files, changing the volume tag immediately breaks those scan results.

Hi kode54, thanks for the reply!

I currently convert the files to FLAC and apply replaygain tags to the new files to solve volume leveling issues. The problem is whilst some sets like Chameleon Twist 2 are very soft, others like Banjo Kazooie are very loud and cause amplification clipping and distortion (visible in waveform editors like audacity). I was hoping that having the volume tags read might help prevent it.

The recent Diddy Kong Racing rerip is incredibly loud, even though I know the game actually is, but it's definitely not ditortion levels loud.

The distortion is minor but present. As a quick example, track 4a of that rip clips frequently. I had a look and lowering the volume tag doesn't fix the clipping. The waveform is quieter, but the peaks are still flattened. It would provide no advantage over replaygain tags then, so I may as well use them.

Sorry to bug you over nothing, kode54.

Unfortunately, the volume tags only affect the output of the emulator, which is already clipped 16 bit sample data. It may reduce the effect to turn off the resampler in the USF decoder preferences, but loud files will still clip in the emulated "hardware" (really software synthesizer and simple DAC) before any volume tag can fix them.

So is it something that can be fixed by reripping or is it a limitation of lazyusf altogether? Because I swear the original Perfect Dark was way louder before the rerip.
