Since foobar2000 still supports Windows versions as old as Windows XP - and that's not expected to change this decade
BTW ffmpeg developers consider dropping WinXP compatibility: https://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2017-December/222354.html

P.S. Though according to https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Downstreams version 3.2 will be supported up to 2022-06? So basically nothing to worry about, sorry.

The Zoom recorder has a 1/8" input for line signals. Although the preamp has RCA output jacks, they are obviously taking the signal outside of the differential domain. One of the advantages of running differential circuits is lower noise. My concern was thus increased noise in doing a direct connection since I would be loosing the differential operation, plus it was a hassle to pull the FocusRite from the studio. So I set up the Zoom. This particular preamp is about 25 years old, being one of the first MP-1s built and so is a little nosier than later units. The Zoom was simply placed on a table, but what I didn't think about is that there is an arch between the living room where the speakers reside and the table. Imaging detail is diffused by both the arch and the flat plane of the table forward of the microphones in the Zoom.

There is a hum in the recording- the hum comes from the furnace fan. Having lived in Minnesota (which gets cold) and the same house since 1971 I no longer think about it.

I was asked to record a quieter portion of the LP. The first cut is a good 6 db louder through most of the track. I did prove my point despite the usual remonstrations.

Audio Hardware / Which RCA input to use, 700mv or 900mv?
Last post by Nikaki -
Hello.

I recently got a new pair of active speakers (S1000DB), and I'm using both analog (PC) as well as optical (TV). The speakers have two analog inputs, however. One RCA pair is "700mv" and is labeled "AUX", the other is "900mv" and is labeled "PC." My analog source is a PC with a Xonar D1 sound card. I'm not sure which RCA pair to use to connect the 3.5mm line out from the Xonar to the speakers. I would assume I should connect it to the "PC" RCA pair, since the source is a PC, but this produces a quieter signal than the "AUX" and optical inputs.

The specs of the Xonar say:

Output/Input Full-Scale Voltage, 2 Vrms (5.65 Vp-p)

But I don't know what that means...  :-\

What I can say for sure, however, is that when I connect the optical out of the Xonar to the speakers at the same time as the analog out and switch between the sources, the 900mv PC connector is much quieter compared to the 700mv AUX connector. The 700mv AUX connector is in fact exactly as loud as the optical connector, which (perhaps naively?) makes me believe that's what should be used here, even though the source is a PC sound card.

Does someone know which is the correct RCA pair to use here?


Edit:
The full specs of the sound card are listed here: https://www.asus.com/us/Sound-Cards/Xonar_D1/specifications

Can I compare two objects?
For example.
I have two massive of embedded covers
I need    if (embedded_1[0] == embedded_2[0] ) {.........}

or

var img1 = gdi.Image(img_path + "1.png"),
var img2 = gdi.Image(img_path + "2.png"),

if ( img1  ==  img2 ) {.........}

As you can see the motor force (BL) is making the conversion of the energy of electrical world to the mechanical world.

Then buy it from a reputable source.

Well..To know if it's a transcode or not !

Because I'm incredibly stupid, I've not figured out to get multiple fields working with a single GUID. Could the next SDK example include that as well?

For now, I've hacked around it with multiple GUIDs which seems to work fine. I'm using it to store playcounts from last.fm and I've finally been able to ditch foo_customdb (hooray!  :P )
