I suspect you didn't make a note of the panel stack splitter settings that were applied to the old panel before replacing it with a new one. Try re-importing the old .fcl file and take a look / ask Tedgo for help.

Nothing wrong with the album art images or text shown in Biography panel.
Things marked in red rectangles gets broken.
To get out of Biography panel I have to point exactly right on the thin red vertical buttons that are barely visible.
Look at updated image in link.
Tried a ton of things and I can't get it right.

Do I understand correctly that you call DAC noise audible when you can turn up the volume enough to make it audible?
I have to because ajinfla doesn't accept noise floor as a potential issue otherwise. Personally I prefer to use a DAC that is indeed inaudible with the listening levels I use in my listening conditions over a DAC that has audible hissing.

Also noise audibility depends on your hearing, background noise and how well your headphones isolate.

In an anechoic chamber where surrounding noise level is at -9.4 dBA a DAC would require super high SNR not to have audible hissing with normal listening levels.

This only shows that there is noise in electronic systems. It doesn't answer the question whether and when it becomes audible.

You don't get what ajinfla is saying. Are you sure it is not you who is being dense?
ajinfla didn't allow me to choose a DAC based on its noise audibility. I called him dense because he argues that proper DACs make no audible noise under any condition.

Is there any way to tell Picard that "these are from the same album", instead of it identifying compilations with thirteen artists as music from thirteen different albums, but I suspect that in my problem cases, MusicBrainz simply does not have the comp.

If Picard does not work: search in Discogs. Either with the Discogs search function, or with Google. Or search with Google.

Simple answer: If it does, something is woefully, tragically, terrifically, reprehensibly, ridiculously broken, and your computer wouldn't boot with that cable in place.

Copy the orphaned files to a separate folder and use the Scan function in MusicBrainz Picard.

i think the "stop playback after current" button is backwards. it's supposed to be filled with color when it's active, but it's filled with color when it's inactive instead

or maybe something in my config got messed up. i installed an older version and it works as expected

FLAC / Metaflac
Last post by bunbury200 -
a question, to editing flac with metaflac.exe How do I select the .flac file without changing the file name to flac1.flac?

I do this: metaflac.exe --remove-all --dont-use-padding flac1.flac

I mean, How do I do it with the filename with spaces? ej: Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs.flac

General - (fb2k) / Monitoring the audio buffer
Last post by Cutter -
Hello

Is there a way to check if foobar2000's audio buffer ever gets empty during playback? I'm experiencing occasional glitches (robotic "buzzes") when my hard drive is under heavy load. However I did not experience those glitches before switching to Win10 from Win7 under the same conditions.

Thanks.
