General Audio / Re: Dare I start another vinyl topic?

I want to hear from those who hate vinyl exactly what it is that they find so objectionable.
Once I experienced the convenience of using a clicker to pick anything from my library for instant playback, there was no going back.  The fact that digital sounds to me as good or better than what I got from my turntable was just icing.

I'm not suggesting that an LP and CD of the same recording would be indistinguishable - of course they would sound different (and especially so for classical).

I certainly acknowledge that lstening to vinyl direct from the TT is always accompanied by annoying noise.

In selectively quoting your earlier post, you have removed your follow-up comment that it is intolerable. Let me refresh your memory:
In case you missed it, I own a TT. I find plenty fastidiously cleaned vinyl quite enjoyable. But as a classical music fan, with my decidedly non-audiophile, slightly capable system, near intolerable.
So you find fastidiously cleaned vinyl quite enjoyable, but you also find it near intolerable. It's often difficult to figure out exactly what you mean to say.
I'm saying I agree with Cliveb regarding classical vinyl/playback noise. If you can decipher what he's saying about classical vinyl that I agree with, you should be good to go.


I didn't realise you had a problem with Arny. I put the two of you together because
Please don't.

Now I have a question for you. Do you listen to "live" vinyl with some sort of active analog declicker/noise remover, or just (digital) noise removed recorded vinyl rips? Genuinely puzzled as to what sort of "vinyl" playback you speak of.

Well, there are no such functions in JScript. But you could probably make something with window.setInterval, i.e. get, compare and update theme values from registry every N seconds .

Is there a way to detect if the windows theme, or the screen settings were changed?
Can you elaborate your question a bit? =)
Are you talking about Windows (e.g. Windows 10) theme? Or fb2k theme?
And there a lot of various screen settings as well both in fb2k and Windows...


I'm talking about the windows 10 theme. I have a script that reads the registry key value of the accent color and other related settings such as transparency mode and whether the accent color is applied to the window titlebar. The script than refreshes panel stack splitter in order to apply the new accent color, if changed. At the moment it is triggered by the on_size and by the on_playback_new_track events, but I would like to execute the script when one of those screen settings is changed, or when a new theme is applied.

Post those files.  I'd be interested in doing the test.
OK, here you go. The ZIP file contains 8 FLACs and a readme file.

While I play a psychologist on TV, I'm not really one in real life, so I can't help with that level of disconnect between what I actually wrote vs what's going on in your head. Sorry Clive, no hypotheses to put forward there, perhaps you could help?
I have a hypothesis that might help. It's because you tend to write in riddles. You routinely lob in mischievous remarks that I for one have difficulty deciphering. I *think* you do it to try and be funny. But I could easily have got that wrong, too.

So I *still* don't know whether you think vinyl has audible problems over and above surface noise and clicks. I kinda got the impression that you do, but I guess I could easily have misinterpreted your posts.

A staight answer to a straight question would be helpful at this stage. Any chance of one?

Oh and that's a pretty uncalled for low blow lumping me in with Arny. Not nice.
I didn't realise you had a problem with Arny. I put the two of you together because I got the impression that you both have a dislike of vinyl and might be the sort of people who would claim to be able to identify it easily. No other reason.

Damn.... It seems I deleted the last release of the component after installing it. Can someone link me to a copy?

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: JScript Panel
Last post by TheQwertiest -
Judging by the first post of this thread, it seems that marc2003 was either banned or moved to read-only on hydrogenaud.io.
Most likely enraged by such turn of events he deleted his git account (jscript included).
Though I doubt that we'll get the full story anyway...

A shame really, fb2k does not have that many active 3rd party component developers, especially in UI department...
Oh well, thanks @marc2003 for all your hard work! My fb2k experience would not even have been started without your component! =)
