Eg: g:\Audio\Metal\Swallow the Sun\2021 - Name Album
My music is sorted on the disk by genre - I want to sort genres without nested and parent folders, how to experiment with variables?
%_path% / %_directoryname%
Do you have that dash in the name of your genres "Pop-Rock" or you just used it on the forum?
Do you put hard rock bands in "Pop-Rock" as well. Right?
Case, what do you think of these two software packages; Audio Optimizer and Fidelizer Pro? I do not own them but found them referred to in some other discussions. They are supposed to shut down extraneous processes in a Windows based music server to reduce jitter. Are they snake oil in your opinion?They might in theory work on some machine, but not the way the authors describe. There are known cases of harware monitoring tools and broken drivers causing DPC latency issues that make realtime audio playback glitchy. If these tools happened to close whatever process or driver was responsible for the issue then they would introduce an actual improvement in sound. But if one suffers from this problem the solution is not to buy these expensive tools but to uninstall the bad software / find the broken driver and update or disable it.
Just run a test with a new portable installation, authorization is working here too.. Thank you!
Often a FLAC is created with a padding block in the header.
As long as the edits of the meta data fits in, the file is not rewritten.
If it doesn't the file must be re-written.
Proper tagging software won't alter the audio part. The MD5 also remains the same so you can always test the audio part
