ReplayGain tagging in Linux, using 'id3' format


I need to tag some mp3s with replaygain, I need to use the ‘id3’ standard rather than ‘ape’.

mp3gain defaults to using ‘ape’ tags, it is rumoured it can to ‘id3’ but I can’t find any documentation, anybody had any luck with this?

The other option is to use foobar2 in WINE, but I’d rather find a Linux native solution.


Mp3Gain can change the volume of MP3 files, losslessly, without writing tags. This will leave your existing tags in place and unaltered. To do this:
Select “Options - Tags - Ignore (do not read or write tags)” from the MP3Gain menu.
