General Audio / Re: How to identify MQA decoding?
Last post by Wombat -
Comedy gold! The message yesterday was no fake. Today on facebook:
"P.S. This is a revised version from our post yesterday! Which was not a fake. Upon request from MQA, we deleted that post."
MQA obviously disliked the facts they based their first message on. They may not be allowed to say MQA is crippled 17bit PCM at best.

hi, another question. When using vsti plug-in, every time start new playback, my mouse cursor show loading icon for a moment. What could be the reason? Is it normal behavior? I'm using Windows 8.1 64-bit and Yamaha S-YXG50 Portable VSTi v1.0.0.

The reason why this is happening is the following: http://imgur.com/a/l10Ws
That guy is wrong on both accounts. All requests are going to api.discogs.com, and the User-Agent was Opera/9.50.

I've now changed the User-Agent to foo_discogs/2.13 to see if that will fix anything.

Release 2.13 changes:

...what makes a non-audible clipping non-audible?

The attached song has a peak of 1.39 in ReplayGain and no distortion can be heard, I wonder what makes it so.

The audibility of clipping is reduced when it is less frequent and when each individual instance of clipping has a shorter duration. 

If the duration of the clipping is short enough any harmonics created can be moved to frequencies where the ear is less sensitive.

IME most experienced listeners listen for IM as a sign of clipping.  A little clipping of short duration can make the music seem more bright.  Heavy clipping much of the time makes music sound like mud.

This is obviously related to the characteristics of the program material. 

Compressing it can often make it more audibly clipped when it is clipped at all because compression tends to make clipping more frequent and make each instance of clipped samples be longer.

There is already a default entry after first installation of onewaysync. You can make it reappear by removing all encoders from the list, then restart foobar.
For the lame encoder you can find reasonable settings in the HA wiki. Searching the forum you will find information for other encoders as well.

Since these devices are transformers, and don't change the data, how can they work?
Those work with devices which take also S/PDIF signal from digital XLR input. I think most professional DSPs do, there is not big difference in AES/EBU and S/PDIF coding. I have used Behringer DCX2496 and DBX Driverack Venu360 with that Neutrik transformer and can confirm those work.

Support - (fb2k) / Ripping from a homegroup CD drive
Last post by ronkuzar -
When I try to "open audio CD" the program doesn't recognize the CD located on another computer on my homegroup. I can view it on Explorer and play music from it. Can this problem be solved?
