Skip Silence DSP accidentally enabled for months while ripping music 2018-10-19 21:50:53 Oh boy.I archived a lot of my music in the last months as lossless FLAC. I usually rip the music as WAV first and then convert it in Foobar into FLAC. I had this preset saved which I use for all my music. Well, seems like this preset also saved my active DSP which I used for trial and error to remove hidden track silence. Back then I guess I saved this into the preset as well and didn't notice it for months.Come to think of it, that also explains why I never had to bother with any silence while I listen some of those rips. Quite cool actually since I hate silence anyway. Still, the fact that now all my rips are pretty much changed from the original source is a bit annoying. Beside of the fact that someone could theoretically just use Skip Silence as a active DSP in Foobar2000 while listening to music. Maybe there was artistical silence in my tracks and now it is pretty much removed. Thing is, I wouldn't know I guess since I never noticed this. Which also makes me think if it really matters that much after all. Was cool not hearing silence on my audio players as well. Usually skipping silence and stuff doesn't work on those walkman players for on the go.My settings in the DSP are 500ms for it to toggle and the threshold is -90db. Which means it toggles really fast but the threshold is really low.I came here to get some opinions from other people whether it would really matter or not because I am darn not sure at all anymore. First I was shocked but now thinking about it... I guess it can't have removed that much "artistical" silence beside of the endings. Or can it? -90db is really silent, no? So maybe it doesn't even toggle in some cases because of white noise recording sound? Often the ending silence and silence inside audio can differ... Also the fact that I didn't even notice is another thing that makes me think. Maybe I shouldn't care and perhaps keep it like that? Of course I wouldn't have 100% genuine audio raps anymore with this DSP or would I?... MEH.I have no idea anymore. Would be cool to get some input and thoughts of others.Damn, must sound like a first world problem audio thread. Guess I am an audiophile and this is really something which has been on my mind for some days.
