General Audio / Re: lowpass wav file to remove FM pilot signal
Last post by pdq -
Thought I throw my 2 cents in.  FM radio caps out around 15 KHz, so resampling to 32 KHz would remove the pilot tone and have no audible effects.
Wouldn't that push dither noise further into the audible range?

I am using the Archlinux AUR package. After updating the pkgsums to match the updated patch, the build fails on:

Code: [Select]
gcc: error: xmmlib.o: No such file or directory
(Full build log)

The build function uses:
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static

I removed "--disable-static" and then it worked.
Any insight?

The downside is that under 48 kbps it sounds more "cassetty" and muddy than HE-AAC, through in my opinion less artificial (HE-AAC sounds metallic to me at low bitrates).
You'll probably agree with me (and with TOS #8 ) that statements such as these would only make sense if backed up by ABX tests results.
Other than that they're not helpful at all, are they? Not even to justify the nechroposting.

Is there any way to import an fcl while missing a panel? I'm missing Lyric Show which I'm not entirely sure what it is. I've tried multiple lyric components but no dice. I'm on a new computer and was able to get all of my old panels except for that so I can't import the fcl I made years back.

Turns out it was the very first Lyric Show Panel. Import successful. But maybe there should be some sort of safe guard for this. Where you can import it but missing panels are replaced by a blank one.

The main reason I haven't switched to Opus is that I heard somewhere that it reconstructs high frequencies so that they are basically synthetic..like in HE-AAC, for instance. Is this a correct assumption or not?

Nah, it does not. It has a special "band folding" method of encoding high frequencies at low bitrates, but it always operates at 48 Khz. It does not bluntly downsample it to 22 Khz and then fake half of the frequency spectra. The downside is that under 48 kbps it sounds more "cassetty" and muddy than HE-AAC, through in my opinion less artificial (HE-AAC sounds metallic to me at low bitrates).

Yeah, I came back to share the fonts after finding out it was those, anyway you can download them on megafonts.net (don't know if I am allowed to link them)

It seems to be for everything though @marc2003 (play/check), anyways thanks really appreciate it.

It is worth noting that the gains from mp3gain are not very accurate compared to modern replaygain tags.
"not very accurate" could mean at least one of two things here.  The first is not up to discussion: due to the MP3 internals, volume can only be shifted in fixed increments (1.5 dB IIRC), while an RG tag allows for finetuning.
But a different question is whether the loudness measurement - how much should one apply - is up-to-date.  Opinions differ on whether the original RG specification or the EBU R128 specification is better at differentiating loudness.

Last post by marc2003 -
You can supply $findfile with multiple paths and it returns the first one that exists...

Code: [Select]
$set_ps_global(do.artist.pic2,$findfile(path1,path2,path3))

To get the parent folder, you'll need to do something like...

Code: [Select]
$replace($directory_path(%path%),%directory%,)artist.*
