today i created a fresh 64bit wineprefix, installed only dotnet20sp2 (x64) and to my surprise, cuetools (libflac) was working just fine.
in the changelog of cuetools you find:
I moved from Visual Studio 2005 to Visual Studio 2008, sorry folks, you might need to install yet another MS redistributable (most likely it's already installed): x86 version, x64 version. If you don't see libFLAC in the list of flac encoders, that means you need this redistributable. Although you can just use libFlake instead, which doesn't require it.
is vcrun2008 needed at all?
p.s. it even works with dotnet20sp1 alone - is wine transcendent or what?
It seems to me that there's an amount of confusion reigning here regarding what the measures actually mean.Thanks, that is realy useful. It is clearly more compex than I thought. I think I am just going to take the plunge and get the SMSL SD-793II and see how it goes. The reviews are not bad.
I would be interested in the reaction of those investigators, and vice versa, as to how this could in fact be done physically in the place where this allegedly happened. And how the effect was accomplished through numerous normal physical barriers and then affected some while not affecting others.
In the official IEEE publication Spectrum, two enterprising US & Chinese professors and a grad student have put up a fascinating article providing a plausible explanation for the combination of audible noise and (potentially) detrimental health effects that might be linked to exposure to high powered ultrasonic devices, and most saliently, why ultrasonic devices would be used in a diplomatic context (to quash and/or engage in eavesdropping). In essence, their explanation boils down to Intermodulation Distortion causing the audible effects. Their Spectrum article is essentially distilling bits of their research paper manuscript (pdf direct link), (much of) the abstract of which I'll quote below:
Quote from: Yan, Fu & Xu 2017
We created a proof of concept eavesdropping device to
exfiltrate information by AM modulation over an inaudible ultrasonic carrier. When a second
inaudible ultrasonic source interfered with the primary inaudible ultrasonic source, intermodu-
lation distortion created audible byproducts that share spectral characteristics with audio from
the AP news. Our conclusion is that if ultrasound played a role in harming diplomats in Cuba,
then a plausible cause is intermodulation distortion between ultrasonic signals that unintention-
ally synthesize audible tones. In other words, acoustic interference without malicious intent to
cause harm could have led to the audible sensations in Cuba.
I found out that the Peace GUI EqAPO has a MeierCrossfeed functionality.
the problem doesn't show up.
I will do some testing to try and reproduce it consistently
so we will have some more clues, hopefully.
