webrider: Pending Lowlander's reply to you, this is my understanding:
First I select the song-titles I want to equilize the loudness, then I select in EXTRAS "Lautstärke analysieren" (could that be also for all my songtitles, ie more than 6000)
I don't think there is any risk of that! It will operate only on the tracks you have selected (selektiert?), i.e. highlghted.
But here I am now not sure what to do, because it appears a popup window, which is saying, that this "Lautstärkeanpassung" is changing the music files definitely, are you sure the you want to equalize these song titles?" What happens if some titles are still ok, will they be changed once more and loosing quality?
My understanding is that, yes, all
tracks will be changed. This is the reason for the warning. When I try this I intend first to make a copy
of the target files. Then I will listen to the results - it will be a long job! If I am happy enough, then I will delete the copies.
Or is that generally not the right way? And if I'm adding new music-files, and after a certain time I don't know which titles I already changed, can I also repeat this procedere without loosing quality?
I would expect that, yes, each 'leveling' would
lose a little quality. And that would be cumulative. Only trial and error (or feedback from other users?) will provide good information on this. And, of course, 'quality' is a very subjective term - sometimes even controversial! I am not an 'audiophile', but I respect those who are, with much higher listening standards than mine. And at the moment I don't have a lot of HD space. Also I play music on my Pocket PC, where space is even scarcer (noch knapper?). So I'm generally quite happy to convert anything at 128 MBps or higher to 64 MBps WMA. But I expect may here would find that unacceptable!
