Not all CDs sound equally loud. The perceived loudness of mp3s is even more variable. Whilst different musical moods require that some tracks should sound louder than others, the loudness of a given CD has more to do with the year of issue or the whim of the producer than the intended emotional effect. If we add to this chaos the inconsistent quality of mp3 encoding, it's no wonder that a random play through your music collection can have you leaping for the volume control every other track.

There is a remarkably simple solution to this annoyance, and that is to store the required replay gain for each track within the track. This concept is called "MetaData" – data about data. It's already possible to store the title, artist, and CD track number within an mp3 file using the ID3 standard. The later ID3v2 standard also incorporates the ability to store a track relative volume adjustment, which can be used to "fix" quiet or loud sounding mp3s.

However, there is no consistent standard by which to define the appropriate replay gain which mp3 encoders and players agree on, and no automatic way to set the volume adjustment for each track – until now.

The Replay Gain proposal sets out a simple way of calculating and representing the ideal replay gain for every track and album.

Why would anybody even want to have it so that they have the same volume when playing there music. Being a producer myself we know that great mixing starts with differ variable volumes within each pattern or loop. So why mess that up. Besides there's already this option in Windows media player to normalize the volume when ripping in a cd. How stupid! ~ Robotic Joe
