General Audio / Re: WMP Tag Plus - MPEG4, Vorbis and FLAC metadata support for WMP
Last post by Tim De Baets -
Announcement: WMP Tag Plus 2.10 is now available for download. This is a bugfix release that fixes the "Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled" error message in the Spring Creators Update of Windows 10. Additionally, a compatibility issue with Symantec Endpoint Protection software has been fixed.

These same fixes were present in Windows Media Player Plus! 2.10, so if you already installed the latter update, there's no real need to also install this update.

See the Version History page for a detailed list of what's new and what has been fixed since version 2.9.

The spectrum analyser is the only visualisation that's built into Columns UI – if you had others with Columns UI before they must've been third-party components. Do you still have your old foobar2000 installation available to double-check how it was set up there?

space is not a dimension ?



A location in space can be described with three dimensions, and space/time (in certain circumstances) 4 dimensions.  However, the number of dimensions for a sound pressure measurement is scalar pressure + time.  One can mix multiple pressure measurements (along with other intelligence in the data -- incl spatial location of the measurements), then allow the sound to help describe the environment (including the source locations.)  This description of the environment is what sonar does (and how the brain calculates the spatial relationships.)

Are you a vacuum cleaner designer ?
(The smallish high RPM motors embedded in the dyson appliances are horribly noisy and is a real pain to endure)

A mathematician should think about the Inverse-square law, no ?

Not directly related to Sir James Dyson, however I did recently mention his gathering of the dyson.com domain early in the Internet, therby frustrating my own ability to get it back then :-).  I am of much less noteriety -- only writing a part of the early FreeBSD kernel code and doing various interesting things at Bell Labs many years ago.  Most recently, working on audio processors including a fully functional DolbyA decoder -- (some interesting things now happening in that realm.)  Basically, just a geek.

Regarding the inverse-square law -- that can certainly be part of the calculation used to help determine information about the environment given multiple scalar sound measurements vs. time.

Try:

.reinstalling;
or
.Shell integration>Folder context menu: unclick, OK, restart foobar, go again, click it again, restart foobar—just in case—.

That is what I would do as first steps. In fact, I will do the second one first and then the first one.

What about this release?

https://www.discogs.com/release/11422773

If I remove my ALBUM ARTIST tag with the format it's okay:
Code: [Select]
$multi_if($multi_and($any($contains($first(%<<RELEASE_FORMATS_DESCRIPTIONS>>%),$array(Compilation,Mixed))),$multi_greater($length($unique($flatten(%<<RELEASE_TRACKS_ARTISTS_NAME>>%))),$div(%RELEASE_TOTAL_TRACKS%,2)),$multi_greater($length($unique($flatten(%<<RELEASE_TRACKS_ARTISTS_REAL_NAME>>%))),$div(%RELEASE_TOTAL_TRACKS%,2))),VA,$joinnames($multi_replace(%<RELEASE_ARTISTS_NAME>%,'Various','VA'),%<RELEASE_ARTISTS_JOIN>%))


Here's the error when I use that:

Code: [Select]
[17:18:23] foo_discogs: Error processing field RELEASE_TRACKS_ARTISTS_REAL_NAME : Error loading artist 6246945: Page Deleted or Missing (404)(url: https://api.discogs.com/artists/6246945)

I've narrowed it down to this:
Code: [Select]
%<<RELEASE_TRACKS_ARTISTS_REAL_NAME>>%

July/19/2018:

Version 1.2

This component adds two options on Toolbar Menu > Edit.

Remove playing track: it removes the current track on the playlist that it is playing although the playback continues on that song—you still hear the song—.

Remove playing track and advance playback
:  it removes the current track on the playlist and the playback goes to the next song—you hear the next song—

In both cases, I could not find the option of doing automatically.
