Well, first, the algorithms of SoX resampler and Secret Rabbit Code were written by Rob Sykes and Erik de Castro Lopo, so kudos to them.

Second, not sure what you mean by performance. Speed-wise, SoX is faster than SRC (mostly because of their algorithms). Quality-wise, they are mostly the same. All high quality resamplers are the same: transparent.

The feature with signal extrapolation is neat though.
Support - (fb2k) / RG mode and preamp smooth transition
Last post by arch21 -
Currently changing RG mode and preamp from preferences while playback is running make a hiccup on the sound. I hope it could be done smoothly like adding/removing or changing DSP presets

Changing RG mode from toolbar sound like need to restart playback first to make it applied. I hope it could work while playback is running.

Regards :)

That's not correct. A 24 bit file has 8 additional low-order bits, not high-order.
Yes and no...

If you look at the raw numbers, no...   You can't add more lower-order bits to a 16-bit integer because they would be to the right of the decimal point.    

IOW if you try to add low order bits to an integer, it stops being a true integer and picks up fractional data (and not additional information).

Basically I can't redesign foobar2000 database without making existing components not work - the metadb interface presented to components has very strong ties to the existing database design.

foobar2000 mobile - and foobar2000 for Mac prototype - already all use SQLite.

I had it installed for a few days and was very happy with it. It was the perfect app for enhancing my media library, cause I am a data and addict. I also got along with a not 100% accuracy. Unfortunately foobar began to crash from time to time, resulting in a loss of playback statistics and changes in my media library (everything was lost, since foobar was opened the last time). Dunno what caused this. I had the feeling it depended on the tags of specific songs, I was able to replicate the crash, when I listened to these specific songs. It could be that this was triggered when autocorrected for example the artist or the song title, but that's just a guess! The crash happened when the play count was counted +1 (at 1:00min of listening).

Hope this can help.

First of all, you should install foo_jesus. That'll at least help you out when foobar crashes and you won't lose "everything."

Secondly, was it crashing on every song, or just specific ones? Can you upload a sample mp3 here that has that issue? I also might need a copy of the database from the index-data folder (it's named 0C1BD000-43E7-4078-B885-48EE4249DEC2). Really do not want this thing causing any crashes.

BTW, just to double check, you were using v2.0.3 right? That fixed a crash when a file was missing required tags.

Ivqcl, I am currently using your excellent Sox resampler mod2, and have noted your comments here about Case's improved SRC.  Am wondering as to how you would compare the two as to performance..  We've got two geniuses at work here who respect each other, so I'm very curious as to both of their impressions!
