Replaygain just adds a tag, it is up to the player to adjust the volume in response. It's rather like the "volume" tag in PSF, but with more logic involved (normalizing the volume of a whole album, etc). A basic flac decoder will ignore it completely.

OK, I understand it a bit more. As long as the data itself isn't being altered and the original content of the CD can be restored, I'm good. :)

Jelbo, I just wanted to point out one other thing. At the very end of my tutorial, I suggest the use of the HkSFV program. Once you install it, you can use it via the context menu.

After you've made all of the changes you want to make to your archive, right before compressing/archiving the album, select all of the files or right-click on the folder itself and create just the MD5 file. This will be useful since you're sending the archive over the internet and sometimes tiny bits of data can get lost; this will allow the downloaders to check the MD5 files to see if that's the case and re-download if necessary.

I'm aware of all the CRC32/MD5 stuff, and I use QuickSFV for that (with some self-hacked icon resource to please my eyes on the context menu icons ;))

Do you think the batch thing is a good idea? I'd like to make the ultimate OST rip and that would make it pretty nifty.

I could use some help though, so if you want to lend a hand on some of the things that'd be nice. On my todo list are:

-check correctness of current tags/filenames
-make .bat files that work with cmdline tagger to switch between track title naming options (effective on tags, filenames, hashfiles, playlist files and .cue sheets)
-fix .cue files based on actual filenames (different .cue file sets when the track title switching idea becomes reality)
-make scans and polish them up
-make .nfo :

I'll be home in about 7 hours from now so we can set up some FTP connection or whatever is suitable.

Indeed, that should work.

I think it's a good idea, it would satisfy the purists that prefer to have the original tags as well as the English speaking people that prefer to have tags that they can actually read. :p

LOL. Just make sure to describe the function of the batch file in the filename so that no one thinks it's some sort of virus. :D

- Well I usually trust the information given at VGMdb and it has the Japanese translation as well.

- LOL. I know very little to nothing about creating batch files, I may not be able to do very much for you in that area.

- You can easily create multiple CUE sheets by opening the CUE current CUE sheet in the Notepad change the filenames data there. When you're done making your edits, save the file under a slightly different name with the extension: .cue.

Change similar information such as artists and folders by navigating within the Notepad to: Edit -> Replace (Ctrl+H) and type in the "Find what:" field, for example: Unknown artist / Unknown title and replace it with the artist(s) and title or whatever it is that you want to replace it with.

Hm, I'm not exactly sure how to setup an FTP but it should be fine for you to upload it to a file hosting site(?). Maybe someone else here might know how to do this. Sorry.

All-in-all, things are looking very good, I'm really looking forward to this rip. :D Cya.

Hey, does anyone own an original copy of the Super Mario Galaxy Original Soundtrack Platinum Version?



Please respond if you own that soundtrack. Thanks.

Shame you know little about batchfiles.. I'm pretty much a rookie on that part as well, but I know some handy search and replace tricks in UltraEdit to help me out.

The same technique is imo rather impossible to use on the .cue sheets, that'll have to be hand labour. I'd like to ask you to do the .cue sheets, you said you were fine with the tagging bits ;)

I can set up an FTP server for you, but all I ask is that you add me on MSN or send me an e-mail so I can give you the details.

Some initial tests with tag.exe were unsuccessful (all tracks got the same title :S?), so I'll have to look into that again or use a different cmdline tagger.

I do have Mario Galaxy, and the English release too, so it'll have official English titles. You'll have to remind me of the link to your ripping guide though.

Really sorry about that, I've only used a batch files once and I had to look up a fair amount of info just to add like 2 lines of commands. :/

Sure, shall I use the CUE sheets that you sent to me? Um, also, could you please explain in detail what it is exactly that you want me to do with them again? :p

I don't have MSN, so I guess I can set up a temporary E-mail address.

Awesome. :) I do prefer the Platinum version because of some of the music on the second disc, I don't mind about the titles so much. I'm just making some minor changes to the tutorial, nothing significant, just trying to make it easier to understand.

Please tell me if there's any portion of the tutorial that sounds confusing. Here's the link: How To Make 1:1 Copies of Audio CDs Using Exact Audio Copy

I'm just going to throw this one out there and hope that someone has it:



Project Soul the Primary Sound Box -Soul Edge ~ Soul Calibur I & II-

I just found out about this one today. Soul Calibur music is some of my most favorite music to listen to, especially Soul Calibur II OST. Again, if someone has the album, please rip it according to the tutorial.
