Right, and thats even if it has the tag info to do so, and its an ape tag which i don't want anyway.

Others have argued it's double application but it really isn't and wouldn't matter if it were. It's metaphorically the difference between turning the volume knob once, or twice. Mp3gain literally changes the physical file, whereas RG much more elegantly leaves the file in the state in which it finds it, and can be turned on or off on playback, as well as support track and album gain simultaneously.

The only use case mp3gain makes sense in imo, is if the file has to be used on a device which doesn't support RG, which is increasingly rare.
