For example, I am volume matching an EQ. I make an adjustment, press space to reset the values. If the EQ volume has gone down then everything but the Post Gain dB value changes. It just gets stuck. The only way to do a real reset is to press the reset button, this is a shame as it seems natural to press space to me.
Hopefully i understood you right:-), and i tried to fix it: post gain is now reset after pressing space in Auto gain mode set to On
As Reaper still sends some samples through the engine even after stop, such samples are played with post gain 1.0 (!?!)

The "Diff RMS Avg" is calculated from "Final RMS Avg dB" - "Source RMS Avg dB". xxx RMS Avg is the full integrated RMS over time, no window used here. Level matching based on only 300ms did not make any sense to me, i needed to match the loudness of the complete song, or at least large parts of it. Just compare to Schwa's Audio statistics.

i added the "Auto gain" button in order to switch from auto to manual (left click cycles up, right down). AutoGain off is equivalent to Wittis "scan off"
and keeps the Post gain value.
I also added the button "Hold" which pauses complete measurement.

:-) right, but this is a limitation of JS, only to change with new graphical controls (bitmaps)

Well, sometimes yes, depends on your plugin chain. I found it useful at least to have this option, but very seldom.

V 1.6 just released.
