wvgain - adds ReplayGain information to wavpack files

wvgain [-options] INFILE...

wvgain perceptually analyzes WavPack audio files for volume, calculates ReplayGain information based on this, and adds the appropriate APEv2 tag fields. ReplayGain-enabled players will use this information to produce the same perceived loudness on all tracks. Both individual track and whole album ReplayGain information can be calculated.


album mode (all files scanned are considered an album)


clean ReplayGain values from all files


display calculated values only (no files are modified)


ignore .wvc file (forces hybrid lossy)


new files only (skip files with track info, or album info if album mode specified)


quiet (keep console output to a minimum)


show stored values only (no analysis)


write program version to stdout


don't set (n = 0 or omitted) or set (n = 1) console title to indicate progress (leaves "WvGain Completed")
