QtGain

   0.9.5  

Qt Sound Application

Score 78%
QtGain

Link:  http://
Minimum required   Qt 4.x
Downloads:  4269
Submitted:  Apr 23 2007
Updated:  Jun 23 2011

Description:

QtGain is a simply frontend for MP3Gain, VorbisGain, AACGain and Metaflac which analyses and adjusts your media files so that they have the same volume without the need to reencode the files. Further information about this lossless method can be found at the MP3Gain homepage (http://replaygain.hydrogenaudio.org/) or Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replay_Gain).

With QtGain you can simplify this job to replay gain your media files. Simply add your files or folders via drag & drop or select a folder with a file dialog. QtGain starts gaining immediately after adding some files and of course you can add more files while QtGain works on your files.
Files which are already gained and need no recalculating are automatically skipped. Files which cannot processed are automatically listed in a dialog box at the end of the job.

NEW: You can now rename all your folders which contains the files and of course the media files too with QtGain. All you need is to switch on the setting and choose a scheme how the folders/files should be renamed.

NEW: Download Cover Arts and Replay Gain your files at once.
QtGain shows you after processing all files the downloaded covers and you can decide to keep them, load another one or delete it.

You need id3v2 if you want to use the new features.

Lower the "Target Volume", the default is 89db. Replay gain your files again with the new setting and clippings pp. should be gone.

Execute mp3gain via shell with the parameter -h, read the instructions. The parameter -u is just what you want to undo the changes.

 Using ID3 Tags instead of ape

 
 by rojthevorlon on: Feb 16 2011
 
Score 50%

Hi,

Great app but can you provide the option to use id3 tags instead of ape? Nothing uses ape tags any more and hardware players (including Rockbox firmware) do not and never will use them - they use ID3 tags for replaygain information.

I note that the version of mp3gain that your app uses has the facility to write id3 tags. Can you provide the option to use those instead of the now obsolete ape tags?

Thanks and your app is extremely appreciated.

Hi,

mp3gain is the only replay gain tool that supports writing ID3v2 tags. But these tags are useless for your mp3 player, because mp3gain stores only "Analysis" and "Undo" information. Every time you replay gain your files with mp3gain, it changes directly the loudness of all frames, your songs have the same loudness independently of the used device.

Hi, I love this application, but I think the GUI really needs an improvement.

I did it (by organizing everything in layouts) and i think the outcome isn’t perfect, but really an improvement.

where can I contribute? should I just upload them somewhere?

Here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/?ospy9k6y62qa603

If you don’t like it: It’s just a quick hack. We can build upon it.

But using layouts and standard widgets like groupboxes is always better than imitating them (e.g. using manual placement instead of layouts and a bold label as header for a setting group instead of a groupbox)

it’s better because it looks native on every platform (e.g. group headers are aligned and formatted like the ui guidelines of the platform want them) and is semantically meaningful (e.g. blinds get to know which settings are grouped under a common label)

The design from the main window of QtGain is taken from OpenOffice.org (word counter/statistic). The reason why I don't using group boxes is because they reducing the free place for the other widgets, so it would be necessary to enlarge the main window. On the other hand under Gnome the thin lines are not shown and IMHO it looks not so good for the main window. The changes in the preferences dialog can be adopted from your mock-up.

Here a screenshot: http://www.myimg.de/?img=Testb36d4.png

Ok, at first it isn’t a mockup, but a fully functional replacement of the current ui files (you can compile the program with them)

i’ll respond to your issues individually:

1. the gnome HIG tell us that separators aren’t to be used if not really necessary: http://developer.gnome.org/hig-book/stable/controls-frames.html
furthermore i think that space isn’t an issue at all. the window is still small enough to fit on any netbook/tablet screen.

2. if you think it looks better this way, you can set the “flat” property on the groupboxes. if the lines are not shown, you are right; vertical alignment is probably better.
also, you could move the status to a statusbar, although the designer is limited in a way that doesn’t let you do it. i did it manually: http://paste.kde.org/89149

At the moment I like the current ui more than your suggestion for the main window. But if you have other ideas how to change the ui or icons its no problem to change that, if it looks prettier.

Hi, I'm using Gnome and the links working for me. What desktop are you using?
* Can you open the project page via the link in the about dialog?
* Can you please start QtGain in a shell and click on the links, is there any output?
* Does right click working for you? There should be a context menu (Copy Link Location)

Thank you for pointing that out!

I'm using Linux Mint with KDE 4.4.5 and Qt 4.6.3. Right clicking on the links shows the Copy & Select all context menu, but there's no console output when clicking on the links. The link to the project website also doesn't work.

Hmm, I have no clue if this is a bug in KDE or Qt, both versions are quite old. I just download a daily of Ubuntu 11.10 and test it if it works with a newer version.

Silent update:

I have discovered that QMessageBox generally can't open links in KDE, I don't know if this is a bug but all other DEs have no problem with html links. QtGain now uses its own dialogs to display the messages, these dialogs should also work with KDE. I have updated the debs so everybody can test it, there are also some ui changes.

The links are working now, but I realized that the drag and drop functionality is broken (v0.9.2 worked for me on KDE): when dropping folders or files onto the GUI, it immediately shows status cancelled.

I just tested it with Gnome and it works as it should. I didn't change anything at this behaviour for a very long time, I don't know why it doesn't work for you.

 FLAC takes long

hi, as i have increasingly more FLAC files, i notice that running QtGain over my whole library makes it blaze across MP3 files (I guess it skips them if they are tagged – good).

But it reprocesses every FLAC file. can you make it skip FLACs that are already tagged, as well?

This is a limitation of metaflac, it ignores replay gain tags and reprocess every file. You can find a feature request here: http://sourceforge.net/p/flac/feature-requests/107/

thanks for the info!

but even if it isn’t your fault, we could still implement it ourselves, e.g. by calling

metaflac --show-tag REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN $filename

if that outputs a line, it is already tagged and we can skip it.

I don't use flac nor I have flac files to test it. If it possible to detect gained flac files with your workaround fast and safe then you can send me a patch and I will merge it to the current version.

 Re: Central repo / Review

I also would love to have the code in a central repo to see current development and for easy contribution.

The program works good for me. I need it to gain both ogg and mp3 files. So good to have one tool for all.

Minor issues:
- During operation the About box is not accessible. When there is long operation one can take the time and read it. :)
- Main dialog should be resizable
- The second paragraph of the qt-apps.org description could be added to the dialog as introductory text:
"Files which are already gained and need no recalculating are automatically skipped. Files which cannot processed are automatically listed in a dialog box at the end of the job."

Wish: It would be nice if there were a simulation mode. As new user I first would like to see what would be done before I start the operation. (Or instead have some help text as said above)

Best wishes
