3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Dynamic Range plugin
Last post by ngs428 -
Thank you for persistence. There was nothing in the crash logger as this heap corruption killed even foobar's minidump writer. It took a few tries with different track counts but I managed to trigger the crash here too. I had gotten a little too carried away with c++ templates. There were several bugs like misconception that comparing pfc::string8 with < and > would work for comparing sort orders and the worst issue was use of memmove to reorder the codec arrays.
Now albums consisting of multiple codecs should no longer crash the log writer with version 0.6.

Thanks for the update!

Swi:  since Foobar's "Default: Primary Sound Driver" output uses wasapi shared, this causes the output to pass through the Windows Mixer, which as Chibisteven pointed out can cause pumping when it own built-in processing is engaged.

I understand that many have completely valid reasons for using wasapi shared, as in wanting to use various effect DSP like fade in/out, not have system sound alerts rendered inaudible, and who prefer a hands-off approach to concern over what sample rates are natively supported by their audio device.  But if you are using it just because it came as the default choice, you might want to try changing the output to "Default: Primary Sound Driver (Exclusive)."  It will avoid the mixer's pumping limiter sound and other handling.  Easy enough to switch back to the default shared choice when that environment suits you.

I do use a manually adjustable VST limiter/compressor plugin for dealing with radio streams whose clipping and compression is sometimes all over the map.  For me, the "bit-perfect" concept must yield to being able to have an enjoyable listening experience!!

Folder:   $directory(%path%,$sub($sub($len(%path%),$len($replace(%path%,\,))),1))

and so on...
Works for me
Thanks, but it's not really working for me, as I have several library folders which are located on different discs and have different depth. Whereas the above scripts start counting from the root of the disc for all the folders. I could probably go into reorganising and moving everything to the same levels, but that's not something I want to do now and it's easier for me to keep using the old version until it get fixed (I hope it will be).
Does anybody knows whether Peter has plan to implement native support for that feature? That is what I miss very seriously.

Indeed, I've offered $300 cash bounty if they can get this implemented along with the other issue of last modified sorting. Starting to think I'm gonna be on 1.6 for a few more years

Taken offline because someone/something appears is DoSing the server. Will be back shortly.

Extensions will be restored, I'm looking at them one by one, if they're actually still needed. This stuff was set up over 10 years ago and I wasn't in charge of it then.

With the "Advanced Limiter" DSP, the volume began to jump less, but It's all the same jump pleasantly and the volume at the end it gets quieter/silence, with the "Advanced Limiter" or without! Change, please, this topic on "Why jump volume foobar2000 1.6.x with output "Default: Primary Sound Driver"?"

foobar2000 outputs floating point when using the "Default: Primary Sound Driver".  When what you're playing is too loud or the DSPs you're using cause too much of a volume increase you can have pumping problems where the volume goes from loud to soft because of Windows' built-in limiter as you're simply exceeding the maximum allowed.  The "Advanced Limiter" caps it at 0 dB which can cause the pumping problems to disappear.  Try reducing internal volume either through using ReplayGain by turning down the preamps or using a DSP until the pumping stops.  You can use foobar2000's peak meter under visualizations to see if you're still going over 0 dB or not.

At first glance I noticed fewer installed extensions but assumed it was still a work in progress.
User groups are a bit different too.

Sorry it took me so long.
It's back and mostly working, running on latest mediawiki.
If things go haywire, it's been thoroughly backed up and can be reverted to current state.
Some things look weird, front page clickpic in particular. Looks like clickpic template isn't working properly, I've not been able to figure out why, hopefully someone can enlighten me or edit it.
