Support - (fb2k) / Export attached pictures suggestion

Pressing "Export" attached pictures opens usually the folder containing the audio files. This is not the case anymore. The last opened folder is opened instead. What can I do, to get the default mode again?
Support - (fb2k) / Re: About DSP dialog
Last post by GeSomeone -
Since it exists, I use the DSP  component Channel Mixer. I know it is old and there haven't been updates for the last 10 years or so, but it always worked without problems until foobar2000 beta14.
Now whatever I do in the DSP configuration of this component, foobar2000 crashes, even when I only press cancel.

P.S. I joined this topic because I suspect the changes in the DSP dialog might be related to this.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Encyclopedia Metallum tags ? - How to find automatic tags by country for artists

Not fb2k, but for Mp3tag - and not even a ready to use solution, but:
For someone who can do a little bit of scripting, it should be possible to fill in a few lines in the Metal Archives source scripts at and get country.
Check this:
It gives country.

If you have a look at one of the scripts, say
there are lines
Code: [Select]
findline "<a href=\\\""
# Artist
findinline "\\\">"
sayuntil "<"
say "|"
meaning that it looks for a line with <a href=\" (the slash is also an escape character) and picks "Artist" as the string between \> and < - just after nationality. So a hunch would be - I have not done anything to test it! - that you could insert the "# Nationality" part and get it to work:

Code: [Select]
findline "<a href=\\\""
# Nationality
findinline "\\\">"
movechar -6
sayNchars 2
say "|"

# Artist
findinline "\\\">"
sayuntil "<"
say "|"

I called it "Nationality" as a "country" tag would often refer to the country of the release (a UK version, a US version, a JP version).
(Discogs has no format for nationality AFAIK.)
General Audio / Re: Questions on "loudness wars" and/or bad CD engineering - doing a FLAClibrary

In terms of loudness war the situation is not completely hopeless.
The implementation of loudness normalization in various streaming platforms discourages loudness war. It will not change the industry instantly, just wait and see.

About declippers... it's easy to visually smooth out clipped waveform but whether it really sounds better or not is another thing. Unintentional and single instrument clipping is slightly easier to fix but intentional distortions caused by loudness war mixing techniques are basically hopeless.

Is there a way to find tags by country, for artists

Like for example, beattles are from the UK
you click on something and foobar finds out they are from the UK and you can tag the file

On the website Encyclopedia metallum all the band countries are shown

manually it can be very long to tag all files

can discog addon for foobar do it?
is there a encyclopedia metallum addon for foobar?
Or anything that could find the country of the artists

thank you
