Indeed, it will not improve the sound, and in fact will add a small amount of noise. Plus it will make your files much larger.

There is no point to this.
FLAC / Upsampling 44.1->88.2, 48->96

I understand that my dac-amp can probably benefit from higher sampled input. I don't believe my device upsamples my audio from 44.1 to 88.2.

DBPoweramp (seems faithfully) to produce FLAC. Is there a plug-in or software to which I can boost this 16/44.1 to 16/88.2, or even 24/88.2 without introducing bad data. Some audio is 48khz, looking for a way to extrapolate 96 from it too.

Possible explanation: I've found Asus's sound cards to be quite crappy. Bad drivers, bad sound chip, and big problems. They're highly sensitive to DPC latency (check with LatencyMon), and also have poor circuit isolation. I tried my front panel connection with them, and unlike my onboard audio, they had noticeable crosstalk between the front microphone and the front headphone output.
I am working on a 5.1.4 speaker layout and want to time align the 10 channels of playback in foobar.

Any chance channel mixer could be updated to support 10+ channels?

If you want pre-built, check here:

OK- I have it recorded. Does this site host sound files?

Hi Davideleo,

Your skin seems pretty. If you did that without JS knowledge I'm impressed and hopeful. Can I download it somewhere, so that I take some inspiration from it please?

Thank you for the link. Actually, that's also the only guide I found that seemed interesting. But I find it complex for the moment, and I struggle to understand Eole skin with it (I must admit I have not read much of it in fact).

I just want to be sure that I don't miss any necessary knowledge/guide before starting, although I know learning by oneself is very powerful (but also potentially longer).

Thank you for your help!

FLAGS DCP (Digital copy permitted flag) is read from the CD. This won't be on every CD you rip.
The developer didn't explain in the release notes why REM Composer "" is now added to the CUE in the recent version of EAC. Older versions did not have this.

As a wise man said once: If you want skins, use Winamp ;)
