Opus / Opus 1.3-rc2
Last post by jmvalin -
I just released Opus 1.3-rc2. This is a second release candidate for the upcoming Opus 1.3. Changes include:
  • Fixing an issue with bandwidth detection
  • Enabling Ambisonics support by default
  • Using mapping families 2 and 3 for Ambisonics (instead of experimental families 253 and 254)
  • Enabling hardening by default

This release also comes with three other releases:
  • libopusenc 0.2
  • opusfile 0.11
  • opus-tools 0.2

With these releases, opus-tools now depends on both libopusenc for encoding and on opusfile for decoding. The main difference is that opusenc is now able to use look-ahead, which helps when encoding speech and music at low-ish bitrates. Please give all of these a try and report any problems.

Source code: opus-1.3-rc2.tar.gz
Win32 binaries: opus-tools-0.2-win32.zip
Win64 binaries: opus-tools-0.2-win64.zip

Edit: Add win64 binaries

I see a lot of derision for high bitrates and "peace of mind" thinking.  OK, I accept the consensus that 96K AAC with a good encoder is "good enough".  However, I have more storage than time and I have no need to economize on space, within reason.  I see no reason not to retain higher bitrates, especially for lossy--even that 320kbps MP3 doesn't cost me much space.  I archive everything as it is received or recorded, whether that is MP3, FLAC, DSD or the 24/96 "needle drop".  Then I typically convert to FLAC of one sort or another for convenience and true gapless playback.

Any chance there is a 64bit one? ; I ask because those encode files quicker than the 32bit.

but speaking of 64bit.... is there even a official Opus 64bit? ; because I noticed in the Foobar2000 Encoders Pack it only offers the 32bit one.

I compile the Opus GitHub repos using Visual Studio 2017 using the Release x64 configuration  :))

In Foobar2000, you should be able to locate the opusenc.exe file. I didn't installed the encoder pack but I have it running the local executable. The same applied for EAC to rip Audio CD to Opus directly.

wow...it's was so simple as put "%_directoryname%|%tracknumber%. %artist% - %title%" as view script.

next step will be to parse one by one...

$puts(index, $strstr(%_directoryname%,' - ')) >
$put(artista, $substr(%_directoryname%,0,index)) >
$puts(resto, $substr(%_directoryname%,index, $len(%_directoryname%)))

$puts(index, $strstr($get(resto),' - '))
$put(album, $substr($get(resto),0,index))
$puts(resto, $substr($get(resto),$get(index), $len($get(resto))))

$puts(index, $strstr($get(resto),' - '))
$put(year, $substr($get(resto),0,index))
$put(resto, $substr($get(resto),$get(index), $len($get(resto))))

not working but i'll get there.

thanks anamorphic to alert me to documentation from a component!

thanks for the help...the problem is "just" to use de folder name as an item on library, the year on another column it's not a problem for me.

i want the library to detect folder with media and add them to library parsin the folder name (artist - album - year - stuff)

Hope my PR is included into opus-tools. Been fixing a few bugs in the latest commits but it should all been fixed by now.
