General Audio / Re: Detecting whether a 24-bit file has been upconverted from 16-bit?
Last post by Replica9000 -
As a sidenote, I scanned my entire FLAC collection with my script, and I found an oddity: the album "Smash" by The Offspring only has 15 effective bits (out of 16, it's a CD rip). I wonder why that is.

Not to hijack the discussion (and not wanting to start a new thread) but my pressing has no such wasted bits in case you wanted to investigate further.*

*Note: The album gain of my backup image reported a RG value of -7.82. Other than that, the spine area of the back label of my pressing has the number 86432-2. Good luck!

My copy also seems to have only 15/16 bits.  The barcode is 0 4577-86432-2 6, disc ID c20af40e

Last post by TT -
I added a disk art place holder option to my version of Georgia a while back because most of my albums don't have any art., but I used a slightly different approach.  Instead of having to enable or disable it, the place holder I select is always active, but only displays if no disk art is found.  The advantage to this approach is that it is automatic as I switch from one track to another..  If a track has disk art available, then it's displayed, otherwise the place holder is displayed.  This is just a personal preference and may not suit everyone, but I thought it worth mentioning since the subject came up.  However, the place holder art I found was not nearly as impressive as yours.  Thank you very much.

I'm also very impressed with your new artwork layout.  It offers almost all of the features of the full layout in a much more compact form and is very convenient.  And I didn't even have to change the theme colors to my liking.  I just use the new Reborn theme and let it select the appropriate colors.   You've really outdone yourself with this newest version.

Hi Martin!

Glad you like it =),
At first, I had exactly the same approach as yours, if no disc art found it will show the placeholder.
This makes of course sense, but the disadvantage is that you can't then switch to my placeholders IF an actual disc art exists.
So I made this option that it can also show the placeholder if users would like to switch between actual album disc art ( if it exists ) and my placeholders...

Well it's just two mouse clicks to change =)

General - (fb2k) / Re: Make foobar playback order options mimick Poweramp
Last post by samuelawachie -
That foobar skip component is very helpful indeed and thanks for recommending that to me.
But there's still a functional case of that Poweramp options that I couldn't replicate.
Let me describe a scenario:
In my database, you have Artist Arthur (having 1 song), Artist Barry (having 35 songs) and Artist Cherry (having 120 songs)
If I set Shuffle (Artists) in Poweramp, it will treat Artist Arthur the same as Artist Barry and Artist Cherry; meaning that all 3 artists have a 1 in 3 chance of having that artist played. And then it moves on to the other two. SO if it plays 1 song from Artist Cherry, it will move on to say Artist Barry even though there are 119 songs still left by Cherry. etc. etc.
But in Foobar, Artist Arthur has a 1 in 156 chance of being played. In otherwords, it is not really shuffling the "Artists" category, but shuffling the "songs" in the said category.
So what I'm asking is, can this kind of "Category" shuffle be done in Foobar? (and I mean, shuffling the "artist" category only, as I don't have songs in "album" form. I just have some songs from some albums that I love, and they are all in one big "Music" folder)
I know that Foobar already has the ability to shuffle albums, tracks, and folders, but in my case, it's just one big Folder, and most of them are picked individual tracks from albums.

So you actually want the opposite?
Disable the disc art placeholder and show the disc art of the album if available?

If so, you need to select Options > Details > Disc art > Display disc art placeholder > No placeholder.

This will disable the disc art placeholders and show the actual disc art of the album.

This theme is awesome. This new update made great theme even better. Thanks TT for making this
Just one question, Is there anyway to show disc art placeholder when there is no disc art available?


Thanks,
about your question. THAT was the purpose why I've made them =).
Please read the detailed update description again:
https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=121047.msg1004353#msg1004353

You can find them under:
Options > Details > Disc art > Display disc art placeholder

Maybe I've forgot to mention that also:
Options > Details > Disc art > Display disc art if found
must be activated, but anyways it is activated by default...

-TT

Yes i have ticked "Display disc art if found"
but if i have also activated display disc art placeholder, it only shows placeholder art even if there is disc art available in the folder.
maybe bug or i messed something with my install...
