Venger Posted January 4, 2016 Share Posted January 4, 2016 Hi,I've been using Poweramp as my music player of choice on a Samsung Galaxy S3 for about 3-4 years now.The recent purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S6 (with no SD card slot) turned the task of getting my music off the old phone into a bit of a nightmare - some was bought under itunes on an ancient G4 mac, some I ripped from a large CD collection, some was bought from Amazon's mp3 store and some is my own stuff recorded at home. Add to this that it was all located in about 3 different places on the old phone, including the SD card, meant I found it a complete pain trying to get it all onto the new phone.Anyway, after many hours it's finally all on the new phone but now something is glaringly obvious - vastly differing volume levels from track to track.Now I know this is not a new problem, several hours spent on the internet this evening has shown me that many people face this problem and there appear to be just as many suggestions about what to do but in a way, I find myself between a rock and a hard place...I don't want to ditch Poweramp, so I guess the Replay gain function would help with this problem but that (correct me if I'm wrong) is only reliant on accurate tagging ?It seems the go to suggestion for tagging is foobar2000 but that's Windows only and I have a mac ?(N.B. on the subject of tagging, what exactly needs to be tagged where in order for Replay Gain to work).I stopped using itunes for purchases years ago when Apple forced the upgrade to version 10 which my computer was too old to run but I do still use it for playback of existing music or stuff I rip onto the computer.Is it possible that I could tag with this ?Only trouble is, I guess I'd need to go through every piece of music I've just spent 3 days transferring onto the new phone, checking tags....and not all that music is on the computer anyway ?Sorry, a rambling post, I'm just really unsure of the best way to proceed to ensure an even volume across all tracks that won't involve days of work !!Any ideas gratefully received Cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
