Also, I don't get why the Foobar status bar shows a 24-bit bit depth for HDCD tracks, yet the Foobar column says 16-bit and my Audiophilleo1 transport only detects 16-bit. Is it because I am using WASAPI in Windows 8 as my output?
I figured out how to get my transport to receive all 24-bits. You have to go into Foobar's Advanced options and set the HDCD decoder to Halve output volume Always. This makes me think the only way to get bitperfect output is via this method when using the HDCD decoder. The Foobar column shows the source bit depth by using %__bitspersample% and the Foobar status bar shows the output after the HDCD decoder processes the source file when using the same %__bitspersample%
Hi Kode54,I am having an issue decoding lossless HDCD to another lossless codec or to WAV. If I convert a track to WAV I have "Additional decoding" unchecked, yet the WAV file loses the HDCD encoding. If I delete foo_hdcd.dll and restart fb2k to decode the same file with the same converter settings, the HDCD encoding is intact when I reinstall foo_hdcd.dll. Do you have any idea why this is happening? It seems like postprocessing decoding is happening whether the box is checked or not.Using version 1.15
I found an album where foo_hdcd works very strange.
I can't just bitcompare them as newer edition has audio signal placed after several samples of silence (audio tracks begin just several samples later than in previous edition, or it's just case of different ripping settings).
As far as I know you don't say about internal function of bitcomparator. So you think that I should edit tracks in some wave editor?
.. "halve output volume" parameter to Never for HDCD encoded track ..? Does it effectively disable the peak extension?
i *think* the links on the page might be dynamically generated and may expire after a certain time.
Haven't actually listened to it, but if I deduce from the title that this is the Genesis track
