Audio Hardware / Re: Homebrew CMI 8738 drivers
Last post by McLies -
Hello to all, and thanks to Dogbert for the straight-through driver for C-Media chips.

I'm experimenting with building a retro system using Windows 98SE.

Does anyone here know if Dogbert's C-Media Driver will work with Windows 98SE ?

FLAC / Re: Embedded Cue Sheets
Last post by schiff108 -
or CUE Corrector8)

CUETools?
Do you have the EAC logs?

I know the both tools.
To my understanding, both tools assume that the Cue Sheet is already there.

I am looking for a tool with the following features / flow. (it's my dream):
1) Open a flac file w/o any tags.
2) Enter the required tags while the tool has all the knowhow where to store the values (like the foobar2000 GUI) considering as well embedded Cue Sheets.
3) New function to mark in a wave presentation where the tracks begins to automatically provide the Index information for the CUE Sheet.

If you don't know:
1) Foobar2000 supports embedded Cue Sheets.
   You can load the Cue Sheet and maintain it afterwards, but you cannot generate.
2) MediaInfo is a great tool to see all tags of audio files.

3) Example of a flac file with an embedded  Cue Shee (printed with MediaInfo:

Support - (fb2k) / Re: %CONTENT GROUP% mapping error
Last post by Scaramouche -
I can confirm the behaviour described in the previous post for FLAC files (with metadata writing mode compatible to various software). Since I have used GROUPING throughout my music files for the main title of classical works (e.g. "Symphony No. 3 e-minor op. 34", "Piano Concerto No. 5") this field is quite essential for me.

....Can't you just remove your corrupted files so that they don't bother you again?
In case of a playlist with radio stations with for example :
Unable to open item for playback (Network error): "http://streaming206.radionomy.com/A-RnB-FM-WEB1"
I don't want to remove that radio station b/c sometimes the radio station stream is down temporarily.

Opus / Re: Opus 1.3-rc
Last post by fabiorug -
I tried this - opus-tools-test-1.3-rc-fix.zip -
It's almost twice as efficient as aac Itunes . Obviously it has different types of artifacts compared to aac Itunes.
It's not bad I think. When the full 1.3 Opus will come out? Probably in July this year?

General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?
Last post by andy o -
AFAIK the only codec used both for music and BT A2DP in any significant way is AAC. Usually speakers and headphone manufacturers will advertise it if they use a non-SBC codec, it's selling point. Most modern Sony speakers and headphones use AAC at the very least, with higher tier ones using also LDAC. I know MP3 also can be used for BT, but no one that I know uses it, especially not any mainstream devices. In contrast, AAC over A2DP is supported in AOSP since Android 8.0, so probably all devices with 8.0 and above will support it. I think Apple also supports AAC on Bluetooth. Now if the devices will or won't reencode the AAC stream is up in the air, who knows.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: (Android) Notification disappears while on pause
Last post by andy o -
That "Do not optimize" option mentioned is to disable Doze for that app, and AFAIK Doze only works after quite a while when the device is resting and the screen is off, not just a couple of minutes. On Oreo, power management is more aggressive. Apps that aren't targeting Oreo have a toggle in the App Info->Battery screen that says "Background activity" under "Manage battery usage". It's enabled by default, and if you turn it off you might have issues with notifications. Apps targeting Oreo don't have that toggle, and presumably can sort themselves out with Oreo's new power management features, so if the fb2k app is targeting Oreo, it might be buggy, if it isn't, then check if that toggle is on or off.
