    Hi, I have got myself a sansa fuze and am in the process of ripping (legally) my CD collection so I can put it on there. I am using vorbis format, as I have done some testing that gives me as good sound as mp3 but at a lower file size, but I am finding that the volume of the rips could do with being a bit higher. I am using Sound Juicer on ubuntu heron, and the gstreamer settings are
    audio/x-raw-float,rate=44100,channels=2 ! vorbisenc name=enc quality=0.15 ! oggmux
    is there a way I can increase the rip volume (rather than attaching gain tags). Or is there a way of/am I better off ripping FLACs (or similar) at a higher volume (maybe using a different app) that I can then encode to vorbis?

    Cheers

    Have you checked the volume setting on the fuze? It has a limiter that is turned on by default.

    Settings > System Settings > Volume. Switch to high.

    Forgive me if you've already found this, but it drove me mad... :D

    Yeah I'd already found that, thanks anyway.
    Anyone know of a way to adjust the volume of ripped files, please?

    Cheers
