Audio Hardware / Re: Speakers recommendations?
Last post by Thomas C. -
maybe something like the Behringer B110D?

It looks like it's actually heavier and slightly bigger according to specs.
On pictures it looks slimmer though ... then I'm rather confusion with it's connectors ... not that I don't know them, but I didn't expect these on a speaker (or maybe is it an "outdoor" transportable speaker?).

I'll have a look, a still take suggestion.

In first post I forgot to give dimensions of the Sony, if I buy anything new, I would really like it to take less "desk" surface, height it somewhat less important:
Depth: 30 cm
Width: 23 cm
Height: 26 cm

Weight: ~7,5 kg (according to specs), ~5kg according own test

I also have a preference for grey, wood, possibly white colours rather than black or red etc..

General Audio / Re: What lossy format to use for Bluetooth transfer?
Last post by saratoga -
i am aware of aptx, but to me it still just proves how shitty today’s standars are. we already have opus. if aptx is better than opus then i want to encode my audio to aptx and listen to in even on my phone with wired headphones AND bluetooth devices WHITHOUT trancoding.

Aptx is something like 20 or 25 years old. It's not that we already have Opus and aptx is some new format just coming out. It's been around long before opus.

Anyway, I would be very surprised if any devices actually skip transcoding even when given AAC files, so I don't think this is a real issue. It's all going to be transcoded, and the choice of AAC or Aptx are probably going to sound similar.

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.




Sorry, I guess I gave too much for granted. The titleformatting expression I posted is not a query. You can use it in the Automatically Fill Values dialog as the source string. It should give you the correct tracknumber for any of your files with either of the three filename structures you listed above. If it works, you can update the whole library with it, no need to do it on per album basis.

aptx and Opus have totally different design goals. 
aptx and Opus have similar goals.
Main goal is high audio quality at low latency and affordable bitrates.

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
aptx HD  - down to 1 ms.
Opus - 26.5 ms (by default). Configurable down to 5 ms.

P.S. Correction to aptx-HD numbers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AptX

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.
