General Development

Over the past few years, I have been slowly but surely building my own music player. It's been a wild ride. The codebase has radically changed several times, but is always converging on a better music listening experience.

In this article my goal is to take you along for the ride.

How come that is so important? Where do you get such shitty encodes that you need to volume-correct each song? Kazaa?

Replaygain is awesome and it's a must-have feature for me. If you have a CD collection spanning many CD's and many years you'll notice when you rip it to digital media that they're all mastered at different volume levels. It's *really* annoying when you're listening to one track from, say, early 90's with the volume cranked up and then the next track comes on and it's from the loudness-war era and you blow out your eardrums.

Right, but if you're ripping your own cd collection anyway isn't it easier to normalise each track to 0db peak right then?
