Opus / Re: What is the bitrate of your Opus files?
Last post by ThaCrip -
The majority of my music is metal, mostly heavy/thrash/death/power/every other subsubsubgenre, and some classical and opera.

I am surprised you can listen to 'Death Metal' as that music is horrible, but yet, you still like Classical. maybe I am mistaken, but I would not expect to find many people who like Classical liking Death Metal or vice versa.

I see Classical and Death Metal as polar opposites as I always thought that Classical music is the closest music one can get to Heaven and Death Metal is the closest music one can get to hell as Death Metal just screams negativity.

basically... Death Metal is the only music I cannot stand. because while there is other music I don't care for that's the only one that stands out in a negative way.

with that said... thanks for your input.

CD Hardware/Software / Re: AccurateRip version 1 vs version 2 CRCs inermixed?
Last post by ThatsGobbles -
The order of the results are not important to AccurateRip, so intermingling is possible.

Thank you, this is good to know! So does this mean that as long as that a given CRC (V1 or V2) for a track number N is found in the Nth position of any of the pressings, that the CRC has found a match, and the corresponding confidence is the confidence of that CRC?

Opus / Re: What is the bitrate of your Opus files?
Last post by yourlord -
I do 112kbps these days. I used to do 96kbps and would still be perfectly happy there, but I got to where every once in awhile I could notice an odd artifact here and there. Storage space isn't much of a concern these days so I just bumped to 112k and haven't noticed anything since. The majority of my music is metal, mostly heavy/thrash/death/power/every other subsubsubgenre, and some classical and opera.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Mono Playback Volume is very low (about -10dB)
Last post by Case -
Curious about your audio setup. As I mentioned earlier there should be no difference on stereo equipment between real mono and mono mirrored to stereo. Certainly works that way with built-in Windows drivers.

It may be common convention to play mono as stereo but it's not what the source is. Default mode of operation in foobar2000 is to play audio with the exact channel mapping it contains. Nothing is upmixed unless the user asks for it.

AAC / Re: TVBR vs CVBR
Last post by david-lisb -
Like i say, at 128kps i can abx almost all the musics (lag of high frequencies) , at 160 kps, it's much better. and at 192, fully transparent for me.
But to go 'safer', i choose 224k...
256 is overkill i think

General Audio / Re: Album Art Downloader XUI
Last post by AlexVallat -
It would be data inside the JPEG file, in any case. Not in the HTTP Header, if that's what you were thinking. Doesn't really matter where inside it is, the file would still need to be downloaded. Analysing and converting image formats is out of scope for AAD, as I mentioned before, the right software for doing that is batch image conversion.

AAC / TVBR vs CVBR
Last post by david-lisb -
Hi,
After a lot of abx, i will convert all my music to aac 224k.
160 is the lower for me, i can abx easly at 128, 192 is good, so for safer i choose 224).
And i will keep the lossless files of course ;)
