Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Often in the tags of the files, there is incorrect information about the year of publication, as an option, the year of the reissue is simply added, but this does not suit me. I edit folders by discography and then send to player and change tags
Proper solution would be to edit tags first, then use File Operations to automatically create correctly named folders and move files there.

Do you have a link to a resource where I could find more info about creating my own impulse files (for dummies)
"Empty" impulse is just one sample with maximum amplitude, surrounded with silent samples. It can be created, for example, in Audacity with Generate silence and then using Draw tool to "draw" one sample with maximum amplitude. Then apply to impulse the same affect you want to be applied to audio signal. This can be done in any audio editor.
Some questions about convolver are asked by wcs13 and answered by me in this and this threads.
To correct some of my statements in that threads , i should note that sometimes impulse needs to be pretty long to get high accuracy in lower frequencies. As you can see, impulses that you have downloaded, are long - ~500ms.

Is it possible to route the audio from vlc, media playing from my internet browser etc through the foobar processing?
It is possible, using foo_record component and virtual audio card, but audio will be delayed, so not synced with video.

do you know of any software that can apply similar processing globally to the pc's hdmi audio output?

You could always run it full screen at hi res and click the "Print Screen" button to screen grab it, then paste it in to any art app to save it.

For proper exports I have used RX Advanced "Export Screenshot" function.
General Audio / Re: Metadata padding and (NTFS) file system block/cluster size
Last post by Porcus -
In order to pad tags before audio, you need to know exact audio size beforehand... but generally you cannot.
Why not, if you already have a file?

If you are reading a stream and putting it to a file, then sure. But a typical tagger considers a file which has audio and maybe tags - and then you know audio, don't you?

As for whether it is warranted ... if some piece of software already has a functionality to reclaim padding, then yes it is.

I got the same issue. foobar2000 v1.2.17 on iOS 14.4.2 doesn't find any upnp server. Foobar2000 prints the message "No network connected!"
I checked the permission for foobar to connect to my local network, I reinstalled foobar, I tested the upnp-servers with other apps (VLCmobile, mconnectLite, JuP&P). All apps do work without any problem, but foobar2000 still does not. However foobar did find the upnp-servers without any issue a few days ago.

In foobar you could use Masstagger component with 'Guess values from filename' ...

(This does the same as the right-click tracks > Properties > Tools button > Automatically Fill Values - except Masstagger lets you save it as a preset to run quickly)

using the metatogger, I rename the tags in the track files from the folder names. I do not know how to configure it in the case when you need to cut off the part from the beginning and the tail

%album artist%\%date% - %album%\%discnumber%\

How to replace

CD1 - Album
CD2 - Bonus

to a simple number without "CD" and ending with " - Album"

If using Masstagger, select all album tracks > right-click > Tagging > Manage Scripts
Clear button (to remove previous)
Add > 'Guess values from filename'
Code: [Select]
%album artist%\%date% - %album%\CD%discnumber% - %discsubtitle%\%tracknumber% %title%

^ The DISCNUMBER field should only contain a number, therefore the above would move "Album" or "Bonus" text to DISCSUBTITLE field. (Note: You may need to fix the %tracknumber% %title% part to match your filenames, if they have a dot . or - for example, make the pattern match)

Check the preview to see the result before running the script. (You can also save it as a preset to run from context menu, and then make it a toolbar button / keyboard shortcut)


As an option, I would like to see your design-add the name of the third nesting folder to the name of the second folder and enclose it in parentheses

Name Album (CD2 - Bonus)
What are you trying to rename here? If you mean tags, really the ALBUM tag should not contain that information - it should only have the album name.

Instead, just use title formatting in your playlist grouping to show that information using the various tags. For example make a playlist grouping like this -

Code: [Select]
%album artist% - %album%[ '('CD%discnumber%[ - %discsubtitle%]')']
