Deleting "Track Volume" Field

by THRobinson » Tue Jan 26, 2021 12:44 am

I'm certain I had a thread for this last year... can not find it at all.

Basically, TRACK VOLUME regardless how often I cleared it, kept showing back up. Someone said delete it from the Library and the Computer and then Synchronize Tags... if I recall correct... and it worked.

Wiped my PC out, reinstalled everything, just cleaning up the system.

When I first ran MM, I realized I didn't go to Options->Player->Volume Levelling and uncheck everything. So some stuff was added to the library before I had the chance to do that.

I'm not sure if the 220 files with TRACK VOLUME are new from that? if so, why's that turned on by default? ...or, if these 220 are the same files as last year.

I grabbed an addon, and used it to delete the Levelling field which wipes that column clear. Then the PC copy. Then I hit CTRL+S to sync tags... but this time, not working. They constantly pop back up.

Any ideas?

If you have done that and files do not contain replaygain index in file s it should not be imported.
Only way is to either open support ticket and supply us with original file from HDD for analyze or you can use free HEX editor like and load the file to see if you can search for word GAIN (case insensitive) in file.

Good catch I completely forgot on that

@Lowlander: correctly?

A quick note: If the music file has not been re-encoded,
you can enter -99999 in the "Track Volume" field.

Ah, you said replace so it didn't sound like you had removed them from MediaMonkey. What's confusing here is that you say iTunes also has this issue, indicating it is something with the files.

I'm not sure I understand - I've deleted them from MM library, then deleted all trace of them from music folders on my laptop, then added a folder from a hard drive with tracks that are fine, re scanned these into the library, and still have this issue??

As you didn't remove them from the Library they still have the values in the database. Remove them from the Library and rescan them into the Library.

Hi, I've replaced them with unlevelled copies from an external source, which show no signs of volume issues on other devices. Cheers

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.
