General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?
Last post by IgorC -
aptx and Opus have totally different design goals. 
aptx and Opus have similar goals.
Main goal is a high audio quality at low latency.

aptx doesn't need to save that much bits, but it needs to have the lowest possible latency (not even 20 ms) and be very easy to encode/decode. 
Latency numbers:
aptx (low latency mode) - 32 ms
Opus - 26.5 ms (by default). Configurable down to 5 ms.

General - (fb2k) / Re: QUERY SYNTAX | Search how many files within an Album
Last post by fohrums -
I wouldn't bother excluding actual number 1 tracks, because as long you retrieve the correct track number from every single file name, you can simply overwrite it.

davideleo & Case thanks for chiming in. What started this was that I got this all-tracks-as-track01 error from VirtualDJ writing in tags and the program hang forcing me to restart it to a devastating outcome :( I still however need to do this per Album because some tracks were already MOVED/RENAMED with the track01-error (like so):



I made a few tests on sample filenames based on the filename structures you posted, and this seems to work:
Code: [Select]
$puts(myvar,$trim($substr(%filename%,0,$strchr(%filename%, ))))$ifgreater($strchr($get(myvar),-),0,$puts(myvar,$substr($get(myvar),$add($strchr($get(myvar),-),1),$len($get(myvar))))$ifgreater($strchr($get(myvar),-),0,$puts(myvar,$substr($get(myvar),$add($strchr($get(myvar),_),1),$sub($strchr($get(myvar),-),1))),),)$get(myvar)

I attempted this to no avail, any ideas? Of course i'm searching through my whole entire library, but to be sure I even used that Album from the image above [Blu - Good to be Home (2014)] and the results still show no results.

I understand you want to recover the track number from the file name. I wouldn't bother excluding actual number 1 tracks, because as long you retrieve the correct track number from every single file name, you can simply overwrite it.

Audio Hardware / Speakers recommendations?
Last post by Thomas C. -
Hello,

Current context: These are my current speakers : Sony SS-RX99: this seems to be the specifications of SS-RX88 and SS-RX99 : http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/3864701111.pdf
I got the a with a Sony system in the nineties and always been satisfied with their sound. I guess the reason is that I rarely bought another more expensive hi-fi system, but even when it was the case with a Denon system, start of the 2000s, coming with speakers S CG 101 BK (or something like that), I moved the Denon speakers out of my main installation and I'm still using the Denon system with the Sony speakers.
What I like about them is that they have what I consider a clear and broad sound.
No bass or highs bias, and I don’t feel like there are many frequencies missing.
That’s probably obvious for some, but I never put much money in "exploring" various speakers.

Not the same thing with earphones what I could appreciate things like the Shure SE-425.

What I would like to recommendations for: I would like to find speakers that are lighter (I mean in weight), smaller, and have at least equally natural and clear sound.
A nice-to-have, feature would be if they could accept speaker input as well as from compute line out+aux.

As for budget, I don’t really a have defined one. I guess I like them to be less than 400 EUR, but I could put much more for something very satisfying that I keep as long as the Sonys.

Thank you

I tried that but it didn't seem to help much at all as it still listed many Albums with correct tracklisting. Something I did forget to mention is that there is about three different types of filename structures that I went through over the years. I would appreciate it if possible you could instead try and get Albums that has multiple tracks w/ multiple-track#1's  ???

Filename-Structure#1 01 foobar
Quote
%tracknumber% %title%

Filename-Structure#2 02-09 Foobar
Quote
%discnumber%-%tracknumber% %title%

Filename-Structure#3 01-01_01-04 Foo Bar
Quote
%discnumber%-%totaldiscs%_%tracknumber%-%totaltracks% %title%

I will say though that from my knowledge, this seemed to help
Code: [Select]
(tracknumber IS 1) AND ("$left(%filename%,3)" IS 01- AND "$substr(%filename%,4,5)" GREATER 01)

What you want to query can't be queried by the built-in tools. But if the filenames are constructed the way your screenshots showed, you should get some results with this:
(tracknumber IS 1) AND ("$left(%filename%,2)" GREATER 01) OR ("$left(%filename%,3)" IS 01- AND "$substr(%filename%,4,5)" GREATER 01)

Support - (fb2k) / Foobar2000 suddenly loads only 10% of my music
Last post by frankcastle294 -
Hello,

I've been using Foobar2000 for a few months, during which I've created my own layout, created and used operations, and created a new directory on disk using these operations.

Anyway, I have it monitoring my main music folder (all artist folders are inside). It was going great, until a couple of days ago, I find that its only loading a small set of artists and not even all their albums. I removed the path to the music folder and added it again, it adds the same exact songs it had before, re-scanning does nothing of course. So that would mean there is something special about these tracks, but I cant figure it out for the life of me. I've checked the metadata side by side of working and non working tracks, but with no luck  :'(

In the attached screenshot you'll see two full albums on the left, whereas on the right, foobar is only loading 1 song from each of these folders for some reason.

If you need anything from my side to help me better, please let me know, any help would be much appreciated
