General - (fb2k) / sort mp3 folders by playcount
Last post by zoumbro -
Hello guys. Is it possible to sort my music library from Most played folders to these non played?
I use foobar statistics. None of what i tried gave me the result of Sort descending folders by playcount, only for single tracks.
Hello, my question is simple ... the answer I dont know :)
I use a NAS for mp3 storage and I use to listening music from different devices under the same lan. How can I manage to synchronize (automatically) a playlist from one device to another one? Is it possible?
Opening of such file is currently stopped by a sanity check, assuming that a file with apparent sample rate greater than 1MHz must be malformed.

Since there seem to be legitimate uses for such files now, I'll allow it from the next version up.

Until then, you can mitigate this by using WavPack.
XMPlay can internally downsample and play the sample back if I select "apply sample rate to all file formats" in settings. Sound Forge 6 and 7 can open the file and process it with most tools. Of course, direct playback isn't possible. Sample rate and byte rate are dwords so they should be able to hold these values.

Beta version is now final. Details in previous post.

Because of the breaking changes, v1.2.4 will remain available on the official components site and on the github releases page.

Certainly EQ can flatten frequency response.     But...   Don't blindly trust the curves (especially at the highest frequencies) and make sure the results are "natural" sounding.

Can I use some global EQ (i.e. separate from the settings in the mix) to make it emulate something more neutral like studio monitors?
A good pair of headphones is probably "better" (flatter) than a pair of monitors, especially if the room isn't acoustically treated and measured/equalized.   ;)   Except with headphones, you don't "feel" deep-strong bass in your body like you do with speakers/monitors (assuming the monitors/subwoofer are capable of that).

So I'm trying to use these headphones for audio production:
From Recording Magazine:
As those of you who have followed this column for any length of time can attest, headphone mixing is one of the big no-no's around these parts.  In our humble opinion, headphone mixes do not translate well in the real world, period, end of story.  Other than checking for balance issues and the occasional hunting down of little details, they are tools best left for the tracking process.

XMPlay 3.8.2 crashes for me when i try and play your sample.

(Maybe the developer could add a switch to the fine component, that -when f2k is closed- hides the DeskBand Controls in the taskbar. (you can also hide it manually, but we are all lazy...)
But its already present - See settings / foobar2000 plugin / Hide if foobar2000 is not running.
U're right :-) Great.

Another question about profiles:

When I load a profile, say "test1" and then close the settings and open it again, the profile <new profile> is shown.
Thats irritating.
Think of a user which has 4 presets and boots the computer after a long period. How would he know, whats the name of the actual loaded profile is? It would be userfriendlier if the name of the loded profile would be visible in the pulldown menu after starting the settings-windows.
