3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Mirror files from source to destination during sync (Foo One Way Sync)
Last post by McVicar -
PS and for what it's worth, two-way sync is the backbone of the iTunes / iPod setup. If you sync tracks to an iPod and then make changes to those tracks [ratings, genres, etc.], when you next sync the iPod with iTunes, those changes are copied across to the original library.

Although there are options to convert files on OWS, as far as I can tell they are secondary to the main function of simply transferring files onto a mobile device, so your point above about reduction in file quality is only a concern if files were converted on the original sync to the mobile device.

I'm really looking for the same sync functionality I had with iTunes if anyone else has experience of using a mobile device as their main music player in conjunction with Foobar. Thanks.

Code: [Select]
SELECT "%album artist%",album
FROM MediaLibrary
WHERE ("%album artist%",album) IN
      (SELECT "%album artist%",album
       FROM MediaLibrary
       GROUP BY "%album artist%",album
       HAVING count(distinct "%added_timestamp%")>1)

Thanks but it's giving me this error.

I've tried to fix it with this but I haven't a clue when it comes to SQL.

Code: [Select]
SELECT a."%album artist%" "Album Artist"
FROM MediaLibrary a JOIN (SELECT album,"%album artist%"
      FROM MediaLibrary
      GROUP BY "%album artist%",album
      HAVING count(distinct "%ADDED_TIMESTAMP%")>1)

FLAC / Re: horrendous file bloating when using Flac 1.3.3 binaries from Rarewares
Last post by ktf -
That depends on how you look at it.

The original overflow possibility has been in FLAC probably since its inception. Triggering this original overflow much became more likely with the introduction of new apodization (partial_tukey for example) functions in FLAC 1.3.1.

I've tried to fix this overflow, the commit was merged into mainline git on 15 March 2020. This has not been in any release yet, so 1.3.3 is unaffected. This commit fixes the overflow in certain cases (specifically, the corner case I was researching at the time), but worsens it in other cases (like this particular sample), because I did not notice possible overflows using this value further in the code.

However, I'd like to stress that hitting this problem is still very unlikely, especially on music files, and it does not produce invalid files, just hugely bloated ones.

General Audio / Beatles' Sgt. Pepper remix with Dolby Atmos spatial audio on Apple Music
Last post by Brazil2 -
Producer Giles Martin about the remix of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with Dolby Atmos spatial audio on Apple Music:
"You're dealing with a record that's been around for 50 years that everyone loves, and no one's ever said sounded bad"
"It's a bit like someone you love for years having a slightly different haircut"
"It's good, but it’s not right... It doesn't sound quite right to me."

It's obvious that the composers of these tracks put a lot of care into panning the sounds and that is an integral part of each track.  Just like listening to a stereo audio file in mono is not the way it's meant to be experienced.

libsidplayfp does not support splitting individual channels of a single SID chip into separate speakers.

Sorry, if you want to use a SID emulator from 16 years ago, be my guest.

If it means hearing the track the way it was meant to be heard then I will gladly use a 16 year old emulator.  I take it you have no plans to support the HVSC then?
