3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_truepeak True Peak Scanner
Last post by Just_Addict -
Then in Foobar go to File > Preferences > Advanced > Enter "True" in the filter and at the top, change the minimum peak sample rate to 352800.  Higher rate the more accurate the results.  Also you want have even multiples of yor sampling rate, so 88.2k*4 = 352800.

I just scanned a SACD release (24bit/88.2kHz) with my Foobar 2.1.5 64 bit and the latest True Peak Scanner 0.6.10.  Worked just fine....

Console stated:
True Peak Scanning track: D:\Music\FLAC HD\Davis, Miles\1959 Kind of Blue (SACD 2.0) (88.2kHz-24bit)\Miles Davis - Kind of Blue (SACD 2.0) (88.2kHz-24bit) - 01 - So What.flac
Oversampling to 352800 Hz with Resampler (SoX)

Maybe, like you said, you need to clean some components up too...  Good Luck!

Yeah, that didn't help either...
"[13:22:47] True Peak Scanning track: Z:\Music\AlbumsExt\Frank Sinatra\1957-00-00 - A Swingin' Affair! [2013 SACD] 24-88.2\01. Night And Day.flac
Error: failed to instantiate ReplayGain scanner
Oversampling to 352800 Hz with Resampler (SoX)"

I'm guessing it's the bold part in your msg above that's the kicker... for various reasons I can't (and won't) run the 64bit version...
In Advanced I set this

There's no Minimum Rate setting  in "File > Preferences > Advanced", neither something I can set to True, unless you meant the Aliasing/Imaging tickbox. 

In the regular preferences I could set this in the ReplayGain Scanner section choosing SoX as the resampler for True peak scan.

The dropdown in top has a list of values but doesn't have 352800 as choice, even though it accepts it if I just type it in. 
But even if I choose Upsample 4x (which comes to 352800 for my SACD's as well), I get the same error.
Other Lossy Codecs / Re: lossyWAV 1.4.2 Development (was 1.5.0)
Last post by Nick.C -
It could be another manifestation of the padding bugs that have recently been bothersome, or it could be that the MP4ALS program does not deal with odd length chunks properly (and that the 'fact' chunk length is odd).

Are you processing to WAV then using the codec or are you piping direct? If the former then some issue with the 'fact' chunk is more likely to be the culprit.
Other Lossy Codecs / Re: Quite OK Audio (QOA)... anyone ?

I have wrote QOA encoder, it distorts less higher frequencies and helps a lot for @Klymins 16000Hz sample (still not perfect, but at least it does not give those harsh sounds that make it trivially easy to ABX especially at lower sample rates) at cost of little smaller dB of SDR/PSNR score.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Scrobbling troubles...
Last post by Spirit.Crusher -
Alright guys, thanks for the input, but I cannot solve this. Yet...

Uninstalled all the apps, starting from zero, no positive results.
Please, can someone explain everything, step by step, eventually with screen pictures?

I'm not so into IT, I'm already on my fifties, but still want to enjoy the small pleasures I have.

One more time my need: I want to scrobble to my lastfm account, everything I listen on foobar2000, under Win 11 Pro. Thanks!

All the best!

I removed the rounding code. All math is done in DIP not pixels. If you think about it: rounding the values before giving them to Direct2D prevents it from choosing the correct pixel when it's time to create the final picture.
225 DPI with 7 bars and gauge gap of 1 DIP renders correctly now AFAICT.
Good to know it now renders correctly. Can you point me to the version/beta of your plugin that renders correctly with different windows scaling?
Speaking of pixel perfect. Can you please point me to version/beta that handles windows scaling correctly?

You are scanning FLAC files in 88kHz/24bit/2ch which were originally converted from a SACD (iso), not the actual SACD (iso).
Scanning an SACD iso is a lot slower than just scanning hires FLAC.
To quantify a lot slower ... here some results:

Testset is only 1x ISO with 12 tracks or 12 FLAC8 files, so utilization of CPU cores/threads is not optimal, but it gives a rough idea of what to expect.
All TP-scans with SOX resampler including LUFS-I, PLR, LRA, LUFS-S/M, DR and Clipping.

which is absent in this CodePen project and even older version of this component

Was there a reason to revert that change? As of now it looks odd to resize the window in such a way where all the bands are laid out without any gaps
Different opinions. I can't please everybody. There was a heavy push to get everything pixel-aligned. There is no such thing as half-a-pixel: if everything needs to be aligned and evenly spaced then the bars needs to have a width that is an integer and therefor the whole component width can not be used.
