General Audio / Re: Downsampling Vinyl-Rips to CD
Last post by hintlou -
Specifically, by default, SoX automatically adds TPDF dither when the output bit-depth is less than 24 and any of the following are true
This is true for SoX commandline tool. But you aren't using it.

If you use ffmpeg, it will NOT dither by default. You need to set dither manually.
-af "aresample=44100:resampler=soxr:precision=33:osf=s16:dither_method=shibata" (if using this command you also can ommit -ar 44100 -sample_fmt s16p)
More dither methods are available, see

Which dither_method be used usually for downsampling to 44.1K?
Opus / Re: Opus 1.3 is out!

You mean, to replace (a+b)+c with a+(b+c)?  Well, Visual Studio Opus project has FloatingPointModel==Fast in Release configuration.

I actually recommend against enabling that for Opus without very careful testing.
Hm, that wasn't entirely clear to me... Do you mean that fast math hasn't been tested with Visual Studio builds? That's how I read it, but as lvqcl says, the Release configuration for the Opus project does use FloatingPointModel==Fast (though the ReleaseDLL configuration uses Precise). See;a=blob;f=win32/VS2015/common.props

(Also, any particular reason to set StructMemberAlignment to 16 bytes? Just curious.)
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: External Tags
Last post by Case -
New version posted. The component now listens for file deletion and moving callbacks and automatically moves and deletes external tags as needed.

And I added a wrapper method that allows forcing streams to go through the component so you can add album art. You can manually add url wrapped inside "exttag://(url here)" string or turn existing playlist entries to the wrapped format from the right click context menu.

Next plan for the component is to add an optional sqlite database for holding the tags.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Mark recently added album as 'NEW'
Last post by Serj -
How can I mark new music with some visual badge? Is it possible?
Currently I use Colums UI and Album list panel. I'd like to see every new entry in album list with badge 'NEW'. May be it possible with other extensions set? Thanks.
