Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding
Last post by j7n -
I can't hear any significant glitch with this sample. The click is blends in with the nasty noise. Strangely, upsampling with SoX makes the click slightly bigger compared to a direct encode, letting opusenc.exe do the upsampling. I can hear it in the 48k sourced encode, as a short hiss impulse on the right side, but it still seems acceptable for a lossy encode, and not noticable without focusing on the position. No bass content in this sample either.

Perhaps the player isn't fully gapless?

I will delete these attachments soon as they don't show anything special.

A better encoder, which is aware of the contents of the previous track, would be nice to have.

Gné ? You don't compare the same thing. One is a complete UI, whereas other is just an element. And the release date has no value as long as it works.
But if you want to compare Facets and Filters from columns UI, then you just have to try both and decide by yourself. I personally love Filters from Columns UI.

Hi all

Many thanks for your interest in my topic !

Here are the 2 samples : last 10 seconds from track 1 and first 10 seconds from track 2.
They are the first 2 tracks of the album Amplifier Worship, from the japanese band Boris.

The glitch is very easy to ear (at least with decent headphones). I first noticed it with 128 kbps Opus, and still ear it the same after re-encoding at 256 kbps. The bitrate doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.

I can hear a faint puff in the left channel in the linked Marillion sample in a 192 kbit/s Opus 1.2.1 encode. But only on headphones at loud, probably unsafe level. The click gets much fainter at 256 kbit/s. This clip has the lowest frequency at around 50 Hz, so the issue with highpass I raised earlier doesn't apply. But we don't know the OP's samples yet.

I tried to ABX 192 and 256 kbit/s concatenated with Foobar multi-track decode feature without any dsp at 48 kHz.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Powerful music. I will try to listen to the album in following days. Thank you for this discovery.
