My standard playback is "portable". The .wav files will be put on a high-capacity USB stick to plug into the port on my truck, or the port of my Sony Blu-ray USB port to play through my main stereo system. Both have limited file support (e.g. not .flac) and I'd like to avoid the compression of .mp3
make it possible to raise one level up, if a two-disc edition, to the folder with the artistMrakobeб this should work
In general, I ONLY looked at the "Images" folder
I added the ability to view only selected folders. See the menu item "Search in folders".
Management and settings:
main menu - rigth mouse button over the image;
text menu - rigth mouse button over the text (font size - Ctrl + mouse wheel over the text).
You can use the --import-id3 option to bring in the metadata as well, which is handy.
Searched up on whether that was supposed to work on those files, found only this thread.
http://www.lindberg.no/hires/test/2L-056_03_stereo_DSD64.dsf has tags (ffmpeg finds them), but I cannot get them over to wavpack.
Odd tag format?
* You cannot use Windows "Exclusive mode" on a sound device that does not support DSD though.
* If so, you must use wavpack.exe to convert - not foobar2000. The easiest is to drag and drop onto wavpack.exe, but better is to use command-line wavpack -h -v -m infile.dsf (that gives higher compression, writes audio MD5, and verifies afterwards, always a good practice).
If you want to convert to .flac or .wav or .aiff, then the conversion will not be completely lossless, but for all practical purposes so, because fb2k will by default select a stupidly high sample rate. My attitude is that if you don't convert losslessly, then you may as well get the file size down: keep the dsf of .wv for archive, and ask yourself what do you need for portable use.
I have a number of already-converted .dsf files that I want to convert to .flac and/or .wav files. I see that Foobar2000 (for Windows 10) is likely the tool I want to use. What I'm not sure about is which SACD plug-in for Foobar2000 I need to facilitate the .dsf to .flac or .wav conversions.
Any suggestions/recommendations are appreciated, and thank you for my "newbie" question.
