General Audio / Re: This is a High Resolution Listening test
Last post by 16Bit Audiophile -
This is a cool and fun test. I just ran this by chance, daytime, my girlfriend doing some noises closeby.
First time I managed 8 times: iMac > RME ADI-2 Pro > Oppo PM-3
I wanted to do better, so I swapped the headphones with custom-fit IEM. I could hear the "high resolution" of the 9th time, but not the complete sentence. I forced myself to get past the first two parts by going beyond comfortable listening and I could hear the 10th time as noise - if at all. So I guess 9 is the absolute limit for headphones or private listening, IMO.

I thought I'd have another go to see how much the DAC can handle, so I slowly increased volume as the track played. I easily managed 13 times at max volume and was able to understand the first word of the 14th time. Since I was using high gain, the noise floor made it difficult to understand the rest. But of course this test is irrelevant because I would be deaf in a normal listening test.

I guess it's impossible to hear the full dynamic range of a CD. I chose my username well...

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_discogs

Heh, funny, I have trouble getting feat artist injection to work correctly too...
Maybe someone is keen to lend a syntax-hand... :D

I had this for a while - which is meant to add 'DISCOGS_CREDIT_FEATURING' to the title, IF it exists:

$if(%DISCOGS_CREDIT_FEATURING%,%TRACK_TITLE%' (Ft. '%DISCOGS_CREDIT_FEATURING%')',%TRACK_TITLE%))

Turns out, this only partially works... i.e. if I tag it fresh, it does not work... but, if I re-run the same through foo_discogs, it then, and only then (on 2nd run) does add the (Ft. '%DISCOGS_CREDIT_FEATURING%') tag to the title correctly.
If you see what might be causing this, and maybe even how to correct it so it does work on first run, that would be swish.
Churs.

General - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 for mac
Last post by parTiHKAL -
I've lurked these forums far too long, so this'll be my inaugural post. I love and have been using foobar for ages.

@Peter so, I was able to isolate one bug.. upon initially pointing foobar 2.1.13(1) to my master folder (includes flacs, mp3s, imgs, zips, 7z, wavs, logs, cues, etc.), it faults upon trying to handle ZIP archives. to make sure, I confined away all zips from said folder, and foobar was happy to file away the rest of the folder's contents.

I'm a developer, bit of a hacker myself, so I knew to use Xcode/Instruments in this instance. hope this helps some :) sorry for not submitting a formal report. please understand: reasons ;)

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Custom tag values separators
Last post by 0x4D657373696168 -
You have to set the field "mood" as a multivalue one to let FB
separate the values when it finds the ";".
Preferences -> Advanced -> Display -> Properties dialog -> Multivalue fields

Miracle! Just what i needed, thanks!

One question, please:
how do you add the mood tag? By your judgment? If automatically, how?

Only by myself. Listen to a theme and decide under what kind of mood she's good.
