General Audio / Re: Removing Spaces or Gaps between Tracks
Last post by JabbaThePrawn -
Some great suggestions here!  Thank you.  And yes, j7n, the Wave Editor I've been using is by Abyss Media.  I have also downloaded foobar2000, and although it seems like a nice enough player I miss the ability to right click a folder and select 'play using foobar2000.  And if I play a file that came into my computer with gaps, foobar recognizes them and plays back the silence (sounds like a stupid sentence, but I'm sure you know what I mean).

I will investigate the 2 products mentioned for removing spaces at the beginning and end of tracks, although as I've already indicated, Audacity seems to work consistently to do just as well.
Audacity will need to decode the MP3 for editing, then re-encode it. That's not ideal for lossy formats. MP3DirectCut doesn't have as good an editing interface as Audacity (which I love using for lossless work), but it edits an MP3 without decoding/encoding the file, which is more ideal. And removing silence is a simple enough job.

These extensions are extensions for search. In 'Search (Integrated)' UIE and in 'Search on Youtube' window (menu View -> Youtube Source) you can find search config menu (where 'Order by Relevance' etc. are placed). This menu has additional column 'Extensions'. There is placed everything that affects search results but is not part of standard search features.

That said, one need to use search to add playlists with these meta tags. A bit illogically, but first of all, whole this feature is generally not applicable, since video can belong to multiple playlists. Because of that it is not something that can be configured globally (via component preferences) and thus it is isolated in Extensions.

Alternatively, you can append playlist URL query part with fb2kx_plmeta=1 parameter and load it using standard way (e.g. File -> Add location...).
General - (fb2k) / Re: Illegal filename characters replacement
Last post by Case -
I'm sure it is, I actually asked Peter a bit earlier about proper way to handle it. Perhaps my playlist altering method is flawed as the player loses track of the metadata in anything but autoplaylists.

I just posted a new version with some improvements but no playlist refresh fix yet.

The results of the rename operation are now shown on the opened dialog screen. Makes it easy to see if there are errors.

The component should now handle all the reserved names and take into account file system component length limits. Empty filename is replaced with string "(empty)", reserved names get zero width space appended to them making them legal and still accessible with all programs.

The component length limit affects all file systems, for example NTFS allows full paths to be over 32000 characters long but individual directories and filename+extension can't exceed 255 characters. Now the components are truncated if necessary and ellipsis character marks the truncation.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help
Last post by colagen -

With the latest jscript panel release, there is a new dodragDrop functionality, which is great, now we can do drag and drop between jscript panels (for the moment, you can't do drag and drop within the same panel and outside the panel at the same time, you have to choose between both actions, but it's the only flaw)

My issue is that an empty semi-transparent rectangle is drawn while dragging tracks next to the mouse pointer, it look a little bit buggy (on windows, this rectangle contain a preview of the dragged content, for ex file icons, but here the rectangle is just empty), is there a way to remove this rectangle ?

Support - (fb2k) / UPnP output to UPnP renderer converts all to fixed rate.
Last post by adamo.a -
I'm using Grandinote Volta dac which is able to stream audio files at 44.100, 48.000, 88.100, 96.000, 176.200, 192.000 bps, 16b, 24b and 32b, also DSD64 and DSD128, but foobar converts everything to a fixed rate; the only working rate for me is 44.100.
Is there any possible way to disable this kind of convertion?

Last post by lvqcl -
Well, first, the algorithms of SoX resampler and Secret Rabbit Code were written by Rob Sykes and Erik de Castro Lopo, so kudos to them.

Second, not sure what you mean by performance. Speed-wise, SoX is faster than SRC (mostly because of their algorithms). Quality-wise, they are mostly the same. All high quality resamplers are the same: transparent.

The feature with signal extrapolation is neat though.
Support - (fb2k) / RG mode and preamp smooth transition
Last post by arch21 -
Currently changing RG mode and preamp from preferences while playback is running make a hiccup on the sound. I hope it could be done smoothly like adding/removing or changing DSP presets

Changing RG mode from toolbar sound like need to restart playback first to make it applied. I hope it could work while playback is running.

Regards :)
Audio Hardware / Re: How to monitor the output band to external DAC
Last post by Arnold B. Krueger -
That's not correct. A 24 bit file has 8 additional low-order bits, not high-order.
Yes and no...

If you look at the raw numbers, no...   You can't add more lower-order bits to a 16-bit integer because they would be to the right of the decimal point.    

IOW if you try to add low order bits to an integer, it stops being a true integer and picks up fractional data (and not additional information).
