Vinyl / Re: 192/32 needed for digitized vinyl to sound as analogue as possible
Last post by Groove -
Somewhat telling that the OP hasn't returned to defend his position, however:

...to have the sound as analogue as possible...

Do you seriously believe there are degrees of analog? Digital vs analog is a clear-cut, black & white distinction. Can something be "slightly digital" or "mostly analog"? No, it either is analog or it is not analog. The only way to keep a recording "as analog as possible" is to USE an analog recording system.

Certainly you can capture a saturated analog sound digitally.

How many bits and what sample rate you need to achieve that is a different discussion.

Support - (fb2k) / Library files could not be written. Bug?
Last post by maddog-ware -
Hello there,

I am new here. I'm using foobar2000p since 2011. From this time forward I have the portable installation on my Windows-Share (small home-server) in my music-folder. Mostly I run foobar from this remote directory on my desktop pc. Until version 1.1 I had no problems using a big music library (around 500 GB Music).

My problem cames slowly in version 1.3. On closing foobar sometimes I'm getting the error 'Library files could not be written (Directory not empty). If you choose 'cancel', your recent library changes will be lost.'. After a few clicks on 'repeat' foobar quits successfully. Since the update to version 1.4.1 I'm getting the same error nearly everytime. Clicking 'repeat' doesn't work anymore. It seems that the error occours on (bigger) changes in library. If I run foobar without making major changes in the library the program closes successfully.

Console shows:

Code: [Select]

Running this portable foobar on the local machine (home server, Win 7 x64) there are no problems.

I've tried to run this portable installation from network share under Windows 10 x64:
  • with administrator privileges
  • in windows 7 compatible mode
  • with full access rights for 'everyone'
  • after deletion of the library-folder
  • with clean portable installation of version 1.4.1

no chance! Old version 1.1 is running perfectly.

Do you have any ideas? It would be wonderful if you can help me.

Thank you a lot and greetings!

Is there anything correct here? I don't think so.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_discogs
Last post by fuffi -
I found another release, where foo_discogs aborts and the user needs to restart f2k. Otherwise, the foo_discogs window is not closing and accepting any pressed buttons.

https://www.discogs.com/release/9456725

See the screenshots for the error: invalid map<K, T> key
The release date for that release on Discogs is invalid. The next release of foo_discogs will catch that error rather than crashing.
Thanks zoomorph,
I just wanted to try to fix the invalid date (now, there is a nice error description), but the date is empty?

Will the component now always show an error on empty release dates? This, I would love to silently be dropped and not shown as an error, because no date is no error, IMHO, its just no release-date.
Or am I missing something here?
The release date coming from the API is actually invalid (even though it shows blank on Discogs website). If you replaced it with a valid one, it would probably start to work.

Hmm. Ok, The Release Date from the "webgui" => https://api.discogs.com/releases/9456725
shows "2008-16-12".

How can I see the invalid date, like you see it? 8-)

Or I might open a ticked at discogs, maybe there is a problem with the release?
