Hi MotleyG...like increase the volume of the songs with replaygain according the clip , so they could sound all loud or at the same volume but not weak/low volume...This defeats the purpose of Replaygain. The concept is to provide somewhat similar reference levels to each song in your library, if you have calculated Replaygain for all songs (I recommend it IMO). Part of that concept is to also ensure the tracks keep their dynamic range intact (Track values) and also maintain their range versus tracks from the same Album (Album values).
Setting the target reference levels too high can cause clipping. The default is -18dB which may be a touch too low for the average user. But raising this to -6dB or higher is probably where you are finding the clipping. I also wouldn't recommend moving the Replaygain slider to an additional +6dB for these tracks that have already been set too high. This could also be the reason other tracks that do not have the Replaygain values sound much quieter for you.
I got the purpose of Replaygain , but there are other players that can do it on the fly using the replaygain values , for example aimp can play all at the same volume and not so weak
I 'm big fan of Musicbee , I would a feature like it
