Unless you need to encode a lot of music very quickly I would use the standard lame builds.  The difference in speed is not that compelling on modern hardware.

General Audio / Re: 32-bit floating-point (WAV) files "in the wild"
Last post by Nick.C -
David made a change to WavPack to permit the storage of floating point audio using the same compression method as for integer audio (around the time I was developing TransPCM - which can output Float16 audio from several different inputs).

For Float16, I made use of the full range, i.e. ±65504 at the top end to ±5.96046E-08 as the minimum subnormal, giving a range of 1,098,975,582,421:1 (or approximately 40 bits) with up to 11 significant bits.

One other option is to just let foo_wave_seekbar finish scanning it's current to-do list and then force a scan of the rest of the DST files sometime when you don't really need the computer for a while so that it doesn't have do it the first time you play a DST.  I usually do a seekbar scan of all DSD files when I first add a new SACD or album to my library...

ran a new cable outside the wall, with a bit of dressing/channel mount to make it look nice?

You're even more confused than you think. LAME != FLAC. One's an MP3 encoder, lossy by definition, the other one's a lossless codec.

Aren't i an idiot?! Shows you what two hours of sleep will do! I meant to say the rarewares lame3.100-64 or the tmkk build.

Sorry about that!

tmkk's binaries aren't just a different compile. They use replacement functions that are faster but also produce different results.

"Different results" as in different from all other builds, or ... ? What exactly are the replacement functions in question? Maybe I am just dense, but this thread has taken a turn toward the confusing. Or rather, I am confused! So which is the better choice? The tmkk Windows build or the flac-1.3.2-git-20171020-x64 build available at Rarewares? I am just trying to follow all of this and am obviously failing.

Either one is super handy if you want to listen to a particular track or album on demand, at any given time, as long as it's featured in their library.

Or figuring out what track or album to buy for your personal music library, too.
