I'm using Windows7 64bit. What is the best FLAC encoder to use that runs on 64bit? I tried using FLAC Frontend and it does not work. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Foobar2000:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/15577/how-to-rip-an-audio-cd-to...oobar2000/

I've probably proselytized about it before, but it's a great application. It lets me manage my library quickly, it lets me cross-encode if I want to, manage my iPod, burn a playlist direct to CD, and is quite customizable.

If you use a standalone audio player, go with foobar2000.

Reason,
I finally got around to installing Foobar2000 with the latest FLAC Frontend.

However, can you or anyone out there please help me solve the following mystery. I can't understand why albums I ripped years ago using EAC as MP3, 320kbps, LAME files sound a lot louder (at the same WMP volume setting) than the same album I'm ripping using Foobar2000. The MP3 files sound louder and richer. In contrast the FLAC files at the same volume setting are hard to hear and sound dull.

What am I doing wrong with Foobar2000? Does it require I apply Foobar2000 DSPs? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Forgot to mention that my setting for the Commandline Encoder Settings - Editing Preset is set to the value of 5. Other than that I have not changed any other settings. Any help as to what I need to do so that my FLAC files hava a stronger sound level capability will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I've been Googling "Foobar Low FLAC volume" in the hopes of solving my low volume FLAC files problem. Is ReplayGain the reason why my FLAC files have a low volume threshold? When ripping an album to FLAC does ReplayGain need to be disabled? Any info greatly apprecaited. THanks.
