The `gain' effect seems superior as it can "see" across the effects
chain to take into account extra/lost headroom.

For example, this allows me to add the the "gain -h" effect at the
start of my effects chain before the RGFX placeholder in my source
command, so when I play a file requiring a -6dB ReplayGain adjustment,
I will only need an additional -4dB of headroom to accomodate the
10dB boost at 20Hz I use (for listening through headphones):

Before:
  RGFX='vol -6dB'
  sox "$INFILE" $SOXFMT - $TRIMFX $RGFX vol -10dB equalizer 20 0.7071q 10

After:
  RGFX='gain -6'
  sox "$INFILE" $SOXFMT - $TRIMFX gain -h $RGFX equalizer 20 0.7071q 10
