I haven't tested recent version with AudioMuxer but can.

In my mind the main reason for AudioMuxer integration was to use AudioMuxer for the resampling, but now that is build into SpecWeb.

Also the dynamics of the original stereo are preserved in SpecWeb, through up/down sample, where as in AudioMuxer the dynamics are changed to eliminate any true peaks (intersample) above 0dB.

My preference is to preserve the dynamics of the original stereo mix (true peaks > 0dB and all).

Side note:

For those of you keeping track, the "loudest" song I have found to date is:​
Savant - ISM - 13 ISM.flac​
It has a True Peak of +4.24 dB and an LUFS of -5.26! :eek:
One more time, not saying "louder is better", just saying if the stereo track was loud, the upmix should be loud too (and have the same "bite" etc.).

But I'll ping the author of AudioMuxer if there is an update he needs to make.

AudioMuxer 0.9.6.4 is "working" for me here with SpecWeb 2.2, if I reset the SpecWeb settings, in AudioMuxer, to find the new 2.2 version.

The problem is that 2.x has settings that AudioMuxer doesn't know about, as well as updated defaults, so it "works" but it's not giving all you the updated features or defaults.
