Deployment Method:

📝 NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade bs1770gain -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade bs1770gain -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Audio from different sources can be expected to be different loud and it would be nice to automatically adapt all these audio sources to the same loudness. Fortunately the ITU-R in their BS.1770 standard defines an algorithm which makes it possible to measure the loudness of a certain audio source. Based on the ITU-R BS.1770 measure several standards bodys defined what they think is the preferred loudness audio should normalize to, notably

  • EBU R128 (Europe) says -23.0,
  • ATSC A/85 (Northern America) says -24.0, and
  • [ReplayGain 2.0] says -18.0.
    BS1770GAIN implements the ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement algorithm and makes it accessable to a user in several ways as known from the EBU R128 standard, i.e.
  • measurement of the integrated loudness,
  • measurement of the maximum shortterm loudness,
  • measurement of the maximum momentary loudness, and
  • measurement of the loudness range.
    The integrated loudness is the two phase gated measurement of the mean loudness as described by ITU-R BS.1770. All measures are described in detail by EBU R128.

On top of that BS1770GAIN provides to additional measures not related to loudness:

  • measurement of the maximum sample peak (ordinary peak), and

  • measurement of the maximum true peak (peak due to upsampling).
    Besides measuring the loudness BS1770GAIN is also able to adapt it conformant with the above mentioned statndards. There are two ways to achieve this:

  • write REPLAYGAIN tags with the respective information to the file and leave the task of applying the gain to the playback device, or

  • actually apply the gain.
