Default CLI Loudness Script

I present a command-line script to calculate individual track values of integrated LUFS, LRA and true peak using ebur128. In addition it will calculate the album integrated, LRA, true peak, momentary max and short-term max. The script presents all information in an html table format as well as on the screen.

Prerequisites: ebumeter, sox

Usage example: album-ebur128 *.flac

I recommend copying to /usr/local/bin or other appropriate directory included in $PATH. The loudness_analysis.html file is created wherever the script is run.

Any feedback for improving the likely inefficient scripting is very welcome as are any feature requests. A good use case for this script would be for comparing reference albums in order to achieve similar loudness values in a Reaper mastering session OR as a final check post-export.
