    Default mp3gain messed up my waveforms.....

    So i got my mac yesterday and I am super hapy.

    I went ahead and downloaded mp3gain on my old pc to run all my songs through there before i transferred them over.

    I set it at like 92 db and ran it.

    After its done i transferred them.

    now the waveforms are SUPER tiny on traktor on my mac

    I know mp3gain is only for PCs. anyone know of a way to fix this?

    thanks!

    Revert to your backup ? Anytime you do something to change your music library you should only do a few songs at a time to test it out.

    92dB?? So it set the gain value of the mp3 file to 92? Doesn't Traktor read that info and adjust the waveforms accordingly somehow? As far as I know mp3gain isn't destructive (it only adds info to the tags) so it shouldn't be a problem
    I used to link music in my signature but nowadays I don't.

    Apparently you can undo the changes, but the mp3gain website doesn't have that info on there. Lot's of forums with people wanting to undo the changes because it screwed something up. Google undo mp3gain and you'll find your answer.

    Just dont see the point of MP3Gain.

    It seems like messing with tunes that maybe dont need messing with.

    Traktors Auto Gain works fine enough without having some other program mauling your mp3s.
