General - (fb2k) / Re: How do I create a playlist in Foobar2000
Last post by j7n -
In iTunes all I had to do was create a new playlist, name it, and drag songs from my library to the new playlist.
It is the same procedure.

Right-click the tab control that shows the "Default" playlist, and choose "Add new playlist", then "Rename". Go to Album List or another playlist, make a selection of one or more tracks and drag them over the header of the newly created playlist. If it is not already in foreground, it will be focused after a second. Release the mouse to drop the tracks and add them to new playlist.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Issues with Scarlett 6i6, WASAPI and exclusive mode

I don't have the device you have but since no one else replied I decided to do so.

System sounds can't prevent WASAPI exclusive mode from working with the settings you have. Only another exclusive WASAPI session can prevent a new session from opening.

You might be able to see what has the device locked by running "powercfg -requests" in an elevated command prompt.

Note that ASIO is still bit-perfect even if it can mix in audio from other sources. If you want to prevent extra sounds IMO the best option is to disable the unwanted sounds.

Here is what I want to do:

Create different playlists like "Favorite Jazz Tracks", "Easy Listening", "Favorite Songs By Led Zeppelin", etc.

In iTunes all I had to do was create a new playlist, name it, and drag songs from my library to the new playlist. Easy peasy.

I followed the instructions posted by anamorphic and all I get is a new playlist for every song. So if I want favorite rock songs playlist with 10 tracks, all I can get is 10 separate playlists with one track each. There is no "add to current playlist" option when I right click on a track. The only options I have are "send to selection playlist", "send to new playlist", and "send to new autoplaylist". None of these will add multiple songs to a playlist. This is extremely frustrating. Foobar is such a fantastic program I can't believe it is so difficult to accomplish what should be a simple task. What am I doing wrong?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Foobar2000 version 1.4.2.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_discogs

However, for example, releases with 1.01, 1.02, 2.01, 2.02, etc, are not recognised as multi-disc releases and are instead counted as 1 through to 40 tracks (if there were 20 tracks on CD1 and 20 tracks on CD2, for example)

Thanks again for the plugin, it's such a godsend!
The plugin uses the standardized track formatting described (somewhat loosely) in the Discogs guidelines...but I don't have any time to work on such changes right now.

Your component and maintenance are invaluable. When you do find time once more...  :))

When I scan multi-discs with x.xx format, it only shows the first track per disc and lists the others as +HIDDEN.

e.g : https://www.discogs.com/master/view/233656
[r2086887]
In the future, it would be great if it were possible to expand +XX HIDDEN and apply the data to the files

Hello,

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately foobar decided to stop working on my ubuntu laptop where I was facing the issue (still using faucet on my main PC so collapsing the album list is not an issue). I'm using audacious now, pretty cool winamp clone.
Still, thank you very much for the answer and the link, I'll keep that in mind if I have to use it.

I know it's a bit late to make a reply now, but, "Made Album List remember expanded nodes." was introduced in foobar2000 1.4.0.
There are no option to turn it off, yet. I hope the devs can make it optional in a future version of foobar2000.

EDIT: Peter said the following: For now, old album list DLL should work just fine in new fb2k.

Install the component via the File/Preferences/Components page. Either by drag and dropping it to that window or by using the Install button. Then you should have the menu options mentioned in the linked forum post.

Last post by Em -
it is almost certainly not foobar2000 draining your battery. to check go:
settings > battery > usage details
click the 3 dot menu in the top right to see the full list of items including wi-fi and network standby

to answer the original question, musepack is highly optimized. unlikely to fix your problem though.
