hi, kode54.
After installing 7-ZIP Reader (also EX version. made by other dev), unlike other archive reader, 7-ZIP format is shown in "Set Programs Associations". Is it by design maybe?

It's been a while, but I've just released foo_run 0.3.8. 8)

It's basically a maintenance release and comes with the following changes
  • CHG: preference page now uses apply logic and doesn't display legacy warning anymore.
  • CHG: removed some outdated default services and added Wikipedia and DuckDuckGo.
  • CHG: updated to foobar2000 SDK 2018-03-06

You can get it via the link from the first post.
Support - (fb2k) / Re: Foobar freezes PC during search

To add a cherry on the top: in my case also it didn't matter if I used integrated HD 4200 with 128 MB of RAM, HD 5770 with 1GB of GDDR, 750 Ti (I am not sure if it had 1 or 2 GB of GDDR) or now on 1080 Ti with 3GB of GDDR (if I am not wrong, I'm on mobile now and can't check what's inside my box). Large library = few sec. freeze after typing first 1-2 characters. Always. Simple as that. Using custom tags and altering LargeFieldsConfig.txt only makes it worse - this is exactly my experience with Phenom II 1100T, 8/12/16 GB of RAM, all above mentioned gfx cards and WD1002FAEX exchanged later with ST1000DM3 as OS drive. Music resides on WD30EADS and this for sure impacts autoplaylists initialization and scanning, as WD Green sucks badly in such scenarios. However rescanning occurs here very rarely. Other apps that bloat memory are Firefox x86, its plugin container etc., Thunderbird and Windows 7 background services. Doesn't sound like environment specifically impacting foobar's performance, just very usual PC usage. Even if I switch to Windows 10 and start Forza Horizon 3, foobar can play music in the background, Firefox can idle and everything works fine. Still on Win10 there is the same freeze when starting search in foobar (of course when Forza is not running even in the background :-)
Audio Hardware / Re: How to monitor the output band to external DAC
Last post by Anakunda -
I would like to have a 24/192 FLAC file that would acousticaly indicate if it's downsampled somehow. Is there such a killer sample one?
Some DAC's have display or operate LED controls that show what format it's actually playing but not this.
It seems there's no other way to see the DAC receives the audio "untouched".
General - (fb2k) / Re: UPnP MediaRenderer output | discussion
Last post by sakuya -
I use Marantz NR 1608 for DMR.
But, it doesn't appear in the devices selection (output).
Environment : Win10(64bit) + foobar2000 v1.3.17 + MediaRenderer output v1.0 beta 18

On the other hand, it appears as a media renderer in "devices and printers" window on windows10.
And Windows Media Player can "Cast to Device" to NR1608 and plays music.

Is there anything I shuld check else?
General Audio / Re: Removing Spaces or Gaps between Tracks

You are likely editing and re-saving .MP3 or another lossy format. This involves opening, decoding, then re-encoding the lossy material to a new .MP3. Your "Wave Editor" also likely does not support encoding gapless MP3s, or decoding them, for that matter. So there may not be any gaps on your files to begin with, and your editor is adding them, and possibly destroying the gapless information already encoded into the original files.
Actually, most of the music files that people send me or I download are MP3 files.  And I certainly don't edit them if they don't need editing.  If they play through just fine they don't get edited.  And 95% of the files I get are 'normal' recordings - the tracks are already separated by 1 or 2 seconds, so if a quarter of a second or so is added between tracks it won't be noticeable.  Live recordings I get are especially prone to these annoying spaces - quite often the applause or musician banter is 'gapped'.
Stop re-saving MP3 files, you can't really edit them without losing more information than just the gaps. Save to FLAC, or WavPack, or another lossless format, but try to start with a lossless file to begin with, rather than any MP3 files.
I have no control over the format of the recordings I get.  And if they're MP3s that flow from one track to the next I'll just have to use Audacity to remove the spaces.

...and when burnt to a CD.  Of course this removes the ability to hop from one track to another...
CDs are easy...   By using a Cue Sheet you can add track markers to a CD made from one-long WAV file.   I've made a few crossfaded "mix CDs" and several "live" CDs that way.

You can write a cue sheet with Windows Notepad (I usually start by editing an existing cue sheet) and then you'll need to use burning software that supports cue sheets (I use ImgBurn).
