MP3 / Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface?
Last post by BrilliantBob -
That's a pretty meaningless ABX test. You don't need to prove that you can't distinguish a encoded file from the source.

What you should be doing: Post an ABX where you successfully distinguish the (in your opinion) inferior Mp3 with default encoder settings and same bitrate from lossless source. Then you should do ABC/HR tests to show that you can distinguish the two Mp3s from each other and that you consistently rate the one with your snakeoil commandline settings as higher fidelity.
I apologize if someone felt embarrassed by my posts. It was not on purpose. I'm new to this forum and I do not know the procedures very well. Others have posted spectrograms and have not been admonished for it. They are only indicative, OK, they do not have scientific value. But as you can see from the posts of others, nobody knows all. I thought the forums were for questions, discussion and exchange of ideas, I do not think they are canonical churches with rigid rules like "forget it and stick with the default settings."

I'm trying to find a combination of settings in LAME to get a .mp3 as transparent as possible, regardless of size. For storage on android. Maybe it's silly what I do, I do not know, but it's worth trying. I'll complete the analysis with the evidence suggested by Deathcrow, which I thank, and let you draw the conclusions. Thanks for understanding and patience.

General - (fb2k) / Re: Skip Silence DSP accidentally enabled for months while ripping music

But did you keep the log files? They make it easier for CUETools to find it. Anyway: if you have a directory for each album (each "physical disc" in case of 2CD/3CD/nCD albums), then install CUETools; then either choose drag+drop and give it all the directories, or point it at the parent folder. I suggest you first make a test run without without setting it to write tags. Then, if there are many that are found in AccurateRip, you can let it write AccuraterRip tags, use foobar2000 to find those which are OK and move them out of the way, and then you see which ones are "damaged" ... if you like to call them that.

Just skimmed through several  speech,music and mixed materials without finding anything wrong. New detector works really great.

Thank You  for a new version and demo.  :)

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Spider Monkey Panel
Last post by TheQwertiest -
I have the following code in ratings.txt to set ratings using keyboard shortcuts:
Code: [Select]
// RATING HOTKEYS
function on_main_menu(index) {
switch (index) {
case 1: // set rating File>Spider Monkey Panel>1 is run
panel.metadb.SetRating(panel.tf('$if2(%smp_rating%,0)') == 1 ? 0 : 1);
panel.metadb.RefreshStats();
break;
}
 }

This, and every variation I have tried crashes foobar instantly. Now I'm assuming it's either something with my configuration or my code since I pretty much modified what I had in js_panel, but just in case it's something with spider monkey I thought I'd the thread aware this is happening. (Crash reports and full code attached if needed). Thanks.
Thanks for the report!
This is a known bug, which will be fixed in v1.0.4, which is expected to be released before the end of the next week.

PS: You can use the `nightly build` from the link in the OP for the time being. It should be noted though, that `nightly build` might be less stable than the `release build` and might have API incompatibilities, which are not documented. So it should be used only if you want to help me by testing it (thus making `release-build` more stable), or if you want to get your bug-fixes as soon as possible by accepting the risk of potential instability.

Samples and ABX tests for my settings will follow, working in progress, but I want to know first about this ATH type. Can you explain me about ATH type 5 please?

Off-Topic / Re: Just doing my part: Trump is an idiot
Last post by Audible! -
Not to belabor a three month old thread, but holy crap.

Making excuses for the torture and murder of a Washington Post columnist by the Saudis?

It'd be more shocking if it wasn't such "small potatoes" relative to the sheer number of people (>5 million) on the brink of starvation due to the Saudi "coalition" war of aggression upon Yemen (which wouldn't be possible without US/UK midair refueling of the Saudi Air Force, let alone selling them the bombs and ammunition for their US-made warplanes).

Luckily, the Georgia Secretary of State (Republican, naturally) is running for governor whilst simultaneously expunging the voter rolls of 107,000 registered voters.

These guys :(
