Audio Hardware / Re: Buying vintage receivers
Last post by bdunham7 -
If you are buying them because of style, then go ahead.  Both of the units you listed are not stellar performers and are the type of thing I would expect to see at a garage sale for $10--at least before the recent vintage craze.  I have (and work on) older gear like this and I wouldn't waste money on service unless they need it.  Neither unit would be worth a restoration IMO.  The Hitachi unit, however, would not suprise me if it simply fires up and worked fine--those were especially simple. 

I have 40 year old stuff that works fine.  I have others that do not and some are not simple fixes.  Wholesale "recapping" is appropriate for 1930's equipment and certain 2000-era equipment, but not these.  If you do need work, you need to find someone competent and judging from the online forums I've seen, that is going to be a challenge.  As far as DIY, unless you have good equipment and experience, your chances of success are not good.

Yikes, I'm so confused, I don't want to bother you but could you make a video or explain more step-by-step.
Sorry I'm quite noob, I'm only experienced with installing components into Foobar etc...
CUETools / Re: Cannot verify one track album rip without cue file
Last post by Sohl -
I can keep the cue file if there is absolutely no work around.
There is. In settings, "AccurateRip" tag, let CUETools "Write AccurateRip tags". Then it will write tags enough to find it. Also, under Advanced, the bottom option:  Put "Write CDTOC tag" to "True".
I checked the accuraterip tag box on verify and had CDTOC on true, but cuetools isn't writing the tags when I go to verify the album. I tested both 2.1.7 and 2.1.6. I have no clue if i encountered a bug or not.
Opus / Re: Opus 1.3 is out!

Not necessarily. 10 has a Vista vibe to it, which also sucked, and I skipped it in its totality. Though 10 is supposed to be forever, constantly being updated. (It just gest worse all the time...)
I liked Vista. On 1GB of RAM.

... Now I'm running Kubuntu 18.04.1 on 32GB of RAM. *shrug*
Support - (fb2k) / Re: IS there a timer function to run a sound file every 15 minutes?
Last post by anamorphic -
Hi there,

There is a component foo_scheduler that might help - though I have not used it to know how well it might work for your purpose. The discussion thread might have answers.

To go outside of foobar, you could also look at Windows Task Scheduler app, and run a command line to the specific sound clip. Click 'Create Task...', name it, set the trigger to 'Daily' and 'Repeat every 15 minutes', set the action to 'Start a program' with foobar path and filename. This would interrupt whatever you are playing in foobar, sending the file to a 'New' playlist (see Preferences > Shell Integration > Always send new files to playlist : New) and then you could automate a resume - perhaps using foo_playlist_attributes with 'Continue on playlist...' (set to main playlist) and 'Bookmark last playback' (on main playlist). Foobar could even fade in/out between playlists.

Just some ideas there. Depends how you'd want to use it I suppose.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: iPod manager
Last post by TheEmpathicEar -
I deleted the above mapping. Now I am back to the steps to reflect this on my iPod. I looked back to post 4075 - around there. It's easy to find "Load library". But, for me, I can never figure out how to access this playlist and right-click on everything and choose "Rewrite Database". I used "Facets" exclusively. Can someone explain this in a way that is useful to me? I NEVER see anything like "iPod View" or anything like that on my screen. And, is it"Rewrite Database" that I want and not "Update Metadata"?
