This add-on works pretty well for me. Sure, Picard adds richer tags but is far from easy to handle. The only thing that this plugin doesn't get right is to add the "albumartist" tag always. At the moment, when "artist" is found, "albumartist" is left empty. This leads to problems with other software.
If this small change were possible, that would be great!

I had to rewrite the wrapping logic to fix that but frankly it was stupidly implemented earlier. CUE inputs should now work with Converter. The rewrite also allowed me to remove old HLS stream related hack I had in place.
I think this is very likely a driver issue. I have not had a single issue with Pulseaudio in years, on multiple machines with onboard audio, USB DACs, S/PDIF output, DisplayPort/HDMI output, you name it.
Perhaps I am extremely unlucky. Sounds sometimes breaks down both for built-in soundcard on the mobo, and an external USB DAC (which main function is to record guitar but I tested how it could work for output because I can). By the way do you think it's worth it to try replacing the kernel with some kind of "realtime" versions as described here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/RealTimeKernel to see if it makes the problem less frequent at least?
There are still distros where you can choose not to use it.
Idk if this is a good investment of time to try different distros now, I have too low IQ (and so I chose the "easiest" way because of that) so it'll probably take too much time. Maybe I'll do some testing from live images without installing, AFAIK they should work exactly as the "real thing".
Just as a reminder, let’s leave commentary about sound quality that is not derived from proper scientifically contolled tests out of the discussion please.
This one isn't about quality though; when sound completely disappears or becomes replaced with noise very vaguely resembling what it should have been. Am I right?
I have looked at the symbols exported by the provided dll and it lacks some which I need, like the hip_* ones, which are available on your libmp3lame.dll.
Could you please recompile ? And could you provide one version for cpus without sse and one for cpus with them (corresponding to the libmp3lame one you provide on your site) ?
I pretend to make my program compatible with old cpus but at the same time, I pretend to make it as fast as possible on the said cpus... so I will be testing whether some registers exist and, then, load the correct dll.
