Gain staging is a slightly controversial and confusing subject. But it’s important enough that there are lots of articles and videos made about it. Often with conflicting advice. Which makes it even more confusing to those of us with no decades of audio engineering behind us. …
Thanks to a nudge and a small donation from one of the users, I’ve added track grouping and an additional sorting option to the Spotify Playlist Sorter.
Grouping lets you group tracks by artist, album, or release year, and then tracks are sorted within each group according to the “sort by” criteria.
Sorting by album track number
There’s an additional sorting option letting you sort by the album track number. This is useful when grouping by album to preserve the album track order in a playlist.
