Thanks for the help! That's great.
Now I started looking for an sox alternative that could do gain
adjustment without having to decode/reencode the mp3, since I seemed to
remember such a tool existed.
This led me to mp3gain. Reading it's man page:
"mp3gain can analyze and adjust mp3 files so that they have the same
Hmmmm. Now I'm thinking, isn't this exactly what I wanted in the first
After running "mp3gain -r *.mp3" on the same files as I tested with in
the original mail, and checking them with ebur128, it seems that the two
programs do not agree how to measure the perceived loudness. mp3gain
uses the replay gain algorithm, what ever that means. Any ideas whether
mp3gains measurements should fare worse than ebur128?
The reason I ask is, that I'm tempted to just use "mp3gain -r *.mp3" :-)
