3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 DeskBand Controls
Last post by fuffi -
(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.
CD Hardware/Software / aucdtect

Struck a problem with this app. It used to work fine but now reports "??" for every lossless file I check, rather than OK or Fail.
I've since reinstalled it) but no improvement.  Anyone else had this/fixed the problem?

Or perhaps there's some other program I could try?

Audio Hardware / EQing headphones
Last post by Benliq -
So I'm trying to use these headphones for audio production:

It appears to start dipping at 2k and then exhibits a bump at 9k.

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?

Since then, are those "popclicks" still there with no delay option ?
Actually, I'm routinely using it for encoding video soundtrack. Don't use it for music.

Alright. Actually i'm also referring to this. So is it safe if I use nodelay for video soundtrack right now or is it better if I take care of the delay manually?

Ah, yes, I did do that at least a few times in its lifetime.

I noticed a bug for the "tag writing" feature : when the tag is generated, quite often, there is an invisible additional special character at the very end.
For exemple if the tag is "Pop/Rock; Art Rock; Prog-Rock; Album Rock", the fist genres will be ok, but the last one will be diplayed in Foobar like this "Album Rock (...)"
I guess this unwanted additional special character is most likely "carriage return" or something similar.

ironically a DAP that is too loud at volume 1 is what got me into the audiophile world some years back. [...]
Of course one could try things like
(Looks like if you want it cheap at eBay, you must either take a Y adaptor or a long cable ... no small thing that only fixes volume? I didn't check thoroughly though.)

Not all files require conversion. I agree with your point, but it does not apply to those files being copied without prior conversion.

Google Play Music has been replacing whichever uploaded song matches theirs and keeping the original file when it doesn't.
