Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

From a DAC, it outputs in stereo, one RCA for L and one for R.
Well, that will supply signal, but volume, etc? Computer?
Using a lower level signal (1-2v from dac) without additional gain from a preamp etc may limit your overall max volume, increase hiss, etc.


I see. The DAC is an ASUS Xonar Essence ST.  (Computer PCI-based card)

Any reason why the Automatic track change option is gone or missing from Fading under Playback->Output? (With ASIO, WASAPI exc. and DS)
This would be a great option. The DSP crossfade works but with very limited option. ie it shouldn't fade in...

I'm using 1.6.5

New updates on World Map:
- Works with multiple selected tracks (draws all points on the map), allowing to show statistics of an entire playlist or library.
- Mouse info:
   + Tool-tip shows the tags added at properties for playlist creation (ctrl modifier).
   + Tool-tip shows the number of tracks for a given country..

- AutoPlaylist creation:
   + On click over a point, an autoplaylist is created with any artist on your library from the selected country. It also checks for the any know artist from that country, so those artists are always matched (even if your files have no tags updated yet). Also uses the data from the JSON file, covering any possibility. The rationale is simple, if Ziggy Marley is from Jamaica, the query will look for any track with locale = Jamaica but also for any track with artist = Ziggy Marley... since that artist is always associated to the same country.

   + Ctrl modifier: forces an autoplaylist  with artist from selected country AND same tags (2 ,configurable). Currently set to style and genre. When selecting only 1 track is easy, the autoplaylist created forces same genre or style. When selecting multiple tracks, the auto-playlist must match any of the combinations of genres or styles of any given track. In other words, selecting a rock artist's track and a folk artist's track from USA would produce an autoplaylist with artists from USA and genre Rock or Folk.

- Config:
   + 2 tags for ctrl modifier autoplaylists:

      - Picard's Plugin does not exist yet.

Obviously, something similar can be done with "Search same by tags" from previous post. Setting to match the last locale tag and same genre or styles.
But there are some differences:
- The map works even without tracks tagged (while the playlist tool creates the queries based on tags from the selection). Therefore the map works in more situations.
- Playlist creation is done visually selecting a point. To do the same with the other script, you would need to select specifically a track from X country first. With the map you can select the entire library and filter your country with a mouse click.
- The map approach uses all tags from all tracks selected (linked to the selected country), linking easily similar music from the same culture, i.e. you can create autoplaylist from Mali with X different genres just by selecting some of your favorite tracks from Mali. Doing the same with the other script requires a lot more of work.
- Obviously the map is an UI panel, the other is just a tool for playlist creation.
- And the map panel can also tags your files while the other tool is only meant to read and use them.
