Title: TT dynamic rate meter installation problem
Post by: anc on 2021-05-02 19:45:02
Hello. I have a problem with installing TT meter from DR database. I installed newest version of fb2000 and downloaded the component file from here: https://dr.loudness-war.info/. When i go to preferences>coponents and click "install" I do not see the TT meter dll file in foobar's file browser (like the file  was not recognized as the foobar component) so i cannot choose it for installation. Does the newest version not support this component? Also - i did a portable instalation - can this be a cause?


Thanks in advance for any help

No, it's nothing to do with having a portable Foobar.  That plugin shows up just fine here when I go to "Install".  Are you sure you're downloading the Foobar version (foo_dynamic_range_1.1.1.zip) and not the "offline" version (DR-Meter-1_4a.zip)?

Here's alternative install instructions and a toolbar icon ~ https://audio-file.org/2020/06/03/foo_dynamic_range-foobar-dynamic-range/

Just as an aside, LUFS Integrated is a far better and widely accepted measure of perceived loudness, and is already built in to FB2K. No need to use an abandoned, buggy component, just use this string instead:

$if(%replaygain_track_gain%,$puts(l,$sub(-1800,$replace(%replaygain_track_gain%,.,)))$div($get(l),100).$right($get(l),2) dB,)

Hi I've been using

$if(%__replaygain_track_gain%,<$puts(temp,$num($sub($replace(%__replaygain_track_gain%,.,,+,),-19500),5))$ifgreater($get(temp),20000,<->,$puts(temp,$num($replace($sub($get(temp),20000),-,),5)))$num($substr($get(temp),2,3),1)<.$substr($get(temp),4,4)< lu)

any idea why they differ? also i noticed your values are in db and none of the three (your string, the above string and the DR rating seem to correlate

(the string is not mine, and I can't remember the thread it came from ATM)

The first string shows how far the loudness is from zero, and the second string shows how far it is from the reference of -23 dB. I posted the second because someone asked for it "in LU", and they didn't like it because of too much color. Change the first number to -21800 and it will be relative to zero.

Of course loudness is not the same as dynamic range because it does not get compared to the maximum level.

A "component" is the zipped package, not the DLL. Don't extract it. Or if you do, install it by copying the DLL file manually.
