Please re-download foo_midi.

Note that I did not bump the version numbers for these changes, since if it worked, you don't need to reinstall it, and if it didn't work, you obviously need to fetch the .fb2k-component file manually.
Okay, tried that, but it just ends up giving me the same error popup as before.

Code: [Select]
Failed to load DLL: foo_midi.dll
Reason: Unknown error code (317)
General - (fb2k) / Re: Group By - Albums of same name

I use those fields too, but do not wish to display them in the main playlist view because I find that the album list looks cleaner with only artist and album, and if all entries have similar, compact length.

I do not find a "query". The only method of customizing the groups is under Playlist View. The display "pattern" is all there is.

Here is what I see after dragging albums into from the media library. Releases get merged under same group, even if they differ by various properties: cat.number, medium, release type, or declipped processing performed. I think these manually split albums look nicer, and it is obvious what the difference is by looking at the tracklist or the selection properties box.

But after posting here, I realized a couple of obvious things. 1) I can use a custom tag field with no contents to split off releases manually. 2) And that the "checksum" is an indirect, awkward method. Forget I mentioned it.

A better way would be to add a "query" value for each custom grouping preset in addition to the "display pattern", kinda like Standard Sort Patterns work. I can specify a long list of fields to sort by. If they are present, they are taken into account during sorting, if not, they do not show up anywhere. Then a script could pick up all differences automatically.

I saw that low voltage spec.  Makes no sense to call it a preamp.

For preamp, I'm checking this one out (or simmilar):
I have active speakers, so I don't neet amplifier, but preamp. Considering I need HDMI inputs, too, I'd rather buy something like this, than something from those companies that sell gold-plated quantuum transformers in their equipment...

According to

The relevant specs are:  Output (+4 mode) 318 mv or 0.318 volts.  IOW this device appears to be is in trouble with just about any industry standard power amp, consumer or professional. I'll bet that there is an amp from the vendor that works, though! :-)

Support - (fb2k) / CD Ripping Problems
Last post by Rizado96 -
Hey all,
I'm having a weird issue with ripping CDs. It seems to read the first track, but then keeps ripping and overwriting that same track over and over, so at the end of the rip I still only have one file. I've tried to rip with both FLAC and LAME MP3 encoders, but the issue persists with both. I've tried some quick searches, but I can't find anyone with the same problem. I don't know what could be wrong; It's never done this before. I'm running v. 1.3.17 and Windows 10, and my CD drive is a USB Apple SuperDrive. Below is my list of components copied from the preferences pane. If there's any more info I can provide that will help, just let me know. Thanks in advance!

Vinyl / Re: 33 vs 45rpm -- Technical Differences
Last post by Atmasphere -

This thread was first prompted by my seeing several 'audiophile' releases of albums, where a typical LP had been spread across two 45rpm records on account of its purported benefits to sound quality. Audiophile claims are nebulous at the best of times, but knowing more about digital audio, I wasn't sure if there might be something to this one.  :D

There could be, if the groove modulation is also higher. There is certainly the room for it. Quite often though on such reissues, the master tape has degraded as they do over time. But it might be worth a listen, especially if the original is not available.
