I recently bought a Sony NW-A45, but didn't realize it doesn't support Replaygain tags... a not unusual situation by all accounts; the player has its own "Dynamic Normalizer" setting but it's worthless.
I went to Edit/Preferences/Devices, highlighted the SD card, clicked Configure/Music and selected Synchronize All Music.
I then went to Settings, and here's where I'm not too sure about how things should be.
All my music files in MB are FLAC files with Track Level Replaygain tags and embedded Artwork, so I don't need to "convert" them, I just need to permanently adjust the volume for use in the DAP.
So, in the On-the-fly Conversion section I left the "Convert to" box unchecked.
I checked Level Volume/Tracks at same volume, as well as Embed Artwork in the music file.
Is this correct?
Also, is MB only
permanently adjusting the volume of the files transferred to the DAP, and not
the original files on my HD?
I know I'm not messing with Playlists as yet, I just want to get the track volume thing squared away first!
