... the other (Rollin's two tracks) seem to have had a liberal and deliberate amount of EQ boost applied in the treble frequencies due to artistic choice/"sounded better to the artist and/or the engineer".
That is noise shaped dither.
Some of the frequency analysis could have contained in it noise-shaped dither, but if you look at the actual spectrograms, there's segments of the songs that seem to have a deliberately loud section in the higher frequencies; the fuzzy, purple mist does seem to be noise-shaped dither, but I mean the red or bright sections.

The really sad thing about this story is that it is not surprising or unexpected. I know of no other interest where there is such a wilful refusal to consider rational, scientific or engineering based explanation or where the concept of objectivity is derided by many. I would like to think stories like this would cause people to question the snake oil and outright chicanery of large parts of the industry but those with an open mind are unlikely to need to be told this stuff while the hard core subjectivists will keep their heads in the sand and dismiss it as trolling from those lacking the golden ears and insight to know why spending $$$$$$$$$$$`s on snake oil is sensible.

Hello! On the pages of this forum not once discussed the problem of adding an external image for stream items. And I would also like to add logos to the names of Internet radio stations. But to date, unfortunately this feature is still not realized. And as it turned out, the reason for this in fb2k behavior. For example see some discussions at these threads: Reply #233 by @luigimercurio for m-TAGS component Reply #17 by @Case for External Tags component So let me ask: Dear @Peter, could you comment on your opinion on this feature for foobar2000 (adding an external image for stream items), please. And if you don't protest about that, then tell us please, is it possible to realize this feature in future versions (or let to support for 3rd Party components)? I think stream items users (for example internet radio) will support me.

Bugs: - extreme Tempo values (like sudden move of slider to -95%, even from previously set -40%, not just "zero") hangs foobar entirely - sometimes entering manually "zero" into Tempo GUI element and pressing enter does not change anything. Zero is displayed, slider resets, but sound is still changed. Moving away from Tempo'sGUI element and going for example to Pitch, causes that slider of Tempo again shows position adequate to the sound that is changed. Going back to Tempo and accepting "zero" with enter mostly solves the issue. Used algorithm: RubberBand.

Sorry, if I hurt your feelings. I didn't want that. I will calm down and share you on the human side... I will now listen to Beethoven's Appassionata instead. Thank you for bringing this to my mind. Maybe you want to share me with this idea.
