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.
I'm trying to convert a mix of hi-res and 44.1k files together, hence the question.
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 https://github.com/antonio-gil/Mp3Tag_WS_MetalArchives and get country.
Check this: https://www.metal-archives.com/search/ajax-advanced/searching/albums/?bandName=Black+Sabbath
It gives country.
If you have a look at one of the scripts, say https://github.com/antonio-gil/Mp3Tag_WS_MetalArchives/blob/master/Me%26tal%20Archives%23Search%20by%20Band%20%2B%20Album.src
there are lines
findline "<a href=\\\""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:
findline "<a href=\\\""
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.)
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.
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
You can check the location above -- sometimes I forget to post about updates. More and more people are realizing that they have DolbyA encoded material and didnt know it!!
