Did you delete them from MediaMonkey and PC, then replace them with a new unlevelled copy, or just delete and replace them on the PC?

Hi, hoping someone can help me with this volume issue:
I'm a guitarist using backing tracks through an mp3 player - I have leveled the volume using mp3gain, and they were working well. Somehow, with a few tracks, I seem to have leveled the volume within the actual track eg quiet fade ins are now same volume as rest of track? I've deleted these tracks from laptop, and imported fresh copies (which play perfectly well on another computer!!) and the same volume issue appears when I play the track - same in iTunes as well as MM? Is it a problem with settings in MM? What am I missing? Would appreciate any help - Regards

PLease note that MM5 also read/write all the standard and non standard tags, which you can view/edit in file properties (under custom tab).

Do you have the option to auto-analyze for unknown volume enabled or perhaps the tags were written by MP3Gain.

Hi Mark.

I am not exactly sure of what you are asking.

Download mp3tag and browse to a file.
Browse to a folder that has some of your audio tracks, right click and select "Extended Tags".
You should see the Replay Gain tags in there.
You can delete them from there, if that is the question you are asking.

The advantage of Mp3tag over other taggers is that it can display all tags, standard and non-standard instead of defined program tags.

Sorry to bring this up again. I just can't work out volume levelling so I have turned off everything in MM. Clear (using the script previously mentioned) the Track Volume fields.

I then used MP3Gain to increase volume of an album's tracks by 3db. I then see that MM added values between -1.1 and -4.5 to these tracks. Can I stop this? I just want to be able to adjust volumes outside of MM but have MM ignore whatever I do.

Regards, Mark

I have had this for ever. But I don't think I mentioned that before. I have been rereading this thread a little bit. Not my posts so bear with me.
But in my situation I've noticed it's only the various artists albums that mess with the album volume level at least on my song's. The ones I put in the computer so I am not worried about this.
But I know I mentioned before that the free offered songs online that say trial or temporary download , they do have a delete code in them some how that deletes on xxxx number of days. I got around that by re recording them to a wav in a wav editor, that removed the delete code, and made the song different from the download version. It didn't delete anymore. This thinking has given me the idea that if you re record the song to a wav then use mm to convert to the mp3 again, using different settings it will be one without the volume code.

Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags

@Lowlander I think that did it!

After I was done I was right clicking the folder and doing the add/scan.

I tried what you suggested, closed/opened twice and add/scanned twice and still no values showing up in the Track Volume field. I also disabled Level File Vol. as well.

Thanks guys!

Have you tried Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags afterwards?

Anyway if you disable Play > Level File Volume the values won't be used on playback or modify the Track Volume (use F2 to inline edit the value in the Tracklistings).

That is why you use PM and it is for stuff only, I delete every media after its use/analyze. Will let you know when I dl it for analyze so that you can delete it from google drive.

Well, I have checked properties/attributes of the files to make sure not protected or locked. I tried in library and direct. I also wiped the library out, edited the PC copy, then rescanned everything back to the library, and made no difference.

I have a Google share thing, but, if I send a link to a music file I'm worried it'll be a violation of forum rules (file sharing/piracy) and I'll get booted or something.

I noticed today though, if I play the song it's a bit quiet. I delete the value and click play and it's louder. So deleting that field does affect the playback volume. But, restart the app and the value is back again and so is the low/high volume.

If they are MP3s, try wiping all tags and resync tag from MM library. Maybe you have double value entered somewhere.

If you wish send me a DL link to one stubborn file in PM so that I can check.

Old thread resurrection I know, but... was a solution found since, I guess a decade ago?

Same issue here. Over 5,000 tracks, and about 800 refuse to let me wipe that Track Volume field out. Soon as I rescan or reopen MediaMonkey... there they are again.


Deleting Track Volume

by THRobinson » Sat May 23, 2020 1:12 pm

When I bring up my library, I have about 5,200 tracks, and 800 show numbers in the "Track Volume" column.

Searched on here a bit and ended up getting an addon for deleting values in fields, and after searching for help on that found that "Levelling" was the field to delete. Why two different names? no idea.

I highlight the 800 tracks, clear the field and voila! that field is empty!

... until I refresh or go back into MediaMonkey again and then the data is there.

I have tried the library, and just now switched to the files directly and same deal.

How do I clear the Track Volume field, and keep it cleared?

Have you tried Trixmoto's "Clear Field" script?

Type in "Leveling" (without the quotes) and that should clear both fields.
