Other Lossy Codecs / Re: Index tables for unofficial IMA ADPCM bit depths
Last post by Klymins -
@Case Codec's are not only required for high-performance computers, they are also required for tiny microcontroller's and etc.. Using a modern codec like MP3 can be very hard or impossible with these tiny MCU's and etc.. So, ADPCM is still required for some low processing power tasks. I'm asking this because i want to use ADPCM with Arduino. Anyway, thanks for recommendation.
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: [fb2k v2] SQLite Utilities (foo_sqlite)
Last post by dpc666 -
Well, just to be clear, what I'm thinking of is not to create F2k standard autoplaylists (I know those only work with standard library queries) but rather to automatically fill regular playlists based on SQL queries, without explicit user interaction. The main obstacle I can think of here is the question of how to schedule playlist updates. I don't know how autoplaylists update their contents, and I don't know whether those triggers are also exposed to components, or whether that would even be practical given the performance limitations of SQL requests.
But exactly your request is present on my playlist manager, in "Smart Playlists", and they are updated on real time whenever the source changes. In this case they use other playlists as source, and apply a query on them. Such special playlist may also be locked by the component, so it can only be changed by it, whether on demand or by any callback.

Oh, I wasn't sure what they do, but I read something in the release notes about support for foo_sqlite stuff. So I guess that's what they're for. I'll take a look in the docs.

Hmm I looked at the docs and it doesn't seem like XSP queries as described there are nearly as powerful as SQL queries. I'm mainly using SQL queries for contextual queries, i.e. using the "OVER" operator to get statistical max(), min(), sum() etc. values from previously defined sets of tracks (especially artists and albums). Apart from the ability of XSP to use playlists as pools (which would require me to generate absurd numbers of playlists) it doesn't sound like smart playlists can do that sort of stuff. Is there another way to dynamically generate pools independently of playlists, analogously to partitions in SQL? Is there a more extensive documentation of XSP queries somewhere that I can refer to?

ADPCM stopped being relevant long before Adobe Flash was a thing. Only place where it would make some sense is in some ancient software that supported nothing else. In that setting unofficial variations make no sense at all.
Replacing a lookup table with a linear variant would mean worse quality per bitrate. Storing an index number for something that could be directly computed simply by multiplying with a constant is a waste of space.

General - (fb2k) / Re: Tagging with an iterative loop e.g. tag automatically according to folder order
Last post by SimBun -
Thanks, but I've got thousands of folders without a consistent structure, so parsing strings would be laborious.

Also, I'm wanting to edit the album tags as I go (to removed 'CD 1'-type suffixes and make the album tags identical, so manual tagging would be quicker than parsing.

Really, I'd want something that works in a similar way to the 'Auto track number' function, but for Discnumbers.
You could do it with foo_sqlite, but if you're just doing one album at a time it's probably just as easy to do it with Masstagger scripts and keyboard shortcuts e.g. one script to set discnumber to 1 (Ctrl+1), one to set discnumber to 2 (Ctrl+2) e.t.c., and do it from the playlist window.

I don't use the Properties panel for editing but given there's an 'Auto track number' I'm surprised there's not an equivalent for discnumber.
