Re: WavPack 5.0.0 Final Release Reply #25 – 2016-12-17 01:05:13 Quote from: Steve Grant on 2016-12-15 13:55:37Quote from: lvqcl on 2016-12-15 11:48:06Seeking speed or decoding speed?Well that's a very good point. I now realise that either could affect the scan speed. I just tested a 4min track and in flac it took 0.43sec to scan & load. The same track in WavPack took 1.35secs. Now these are not particularly long times, however with long tracks DJ's seem to get antsy if the track doesn't appear in the display almost instantly.Yeah, fast decoding is one of FLAC's strong suites. The “fast” mode of WavPack gets pretty close, but the “high” (-h) mode that you used is easily half as fast (although 1.35 seconds for a 4 minute track is not exactly crawling).Using the command line program you could try transcoding a track (or a folder of them) to “fast” mode and test it again. Use the command “wavpack file.wv -fx6v” or “wavpack *.wv -fx6v” to get the best compression with the fastest decode speed (the actual transcoding will be petty slow, but the resulting files will not be that much bigger than what you have and will decode twice as fast, or so). Note that the transcoding will copy all the tags and any extra RIFF info, and won't delete the original until the transcoding is verified.
