Lossless / Other Codecs / Re: Quick question about Lossless/Studio Monitors
Last post by greynol -
At higher bitrates, lossy artifacts from a well tuned codec are almost never identified as spatial/directional, regardless of the grade of gear let alone headphones vs. speakers, etc.  Even at lower bitrates, non-spatial artifacts are still going to be more noticeable than spatial artifacts.

Hi there,

Where you have %title%, instead put $replace(%title%,'(','[',')',']') - I think that should do it though I have not tested.

See foobar Help menu > Title Formatting Help for more info on functions.
General - (fb2k) / File Renaming On Conversion
Last post by Fletchesus -
Total newbie to file naming and syntax - have searched but unable to find the answer to the following: I wish, on conversion of file to flac in Foobar, to, in each filename with a parenthesis (i.e. "(", or ")") to convert those parentheses to "[" and "]", respectively. In other words, replace round brackets with square brackets. Can anyone provide some much guided assistance as to what command and where I should add to the following string (which is what I typically use in conversion): $caps(%album artist% - %album%/%tracknumber% %title%).

Many thanks.

About "Monitor for changes" though, if foobar2000 is closed and I use a 3rd party tagger like MP3Tag, will foobar2000 pick these changes later when it runs, or is a manual scan needed
No, manual rescan needed. This is what "Rescan On Startup" option is for - changes outside foobar.

If you leave it off, just remember to rescan it yourself every so often after you update files (or leave foobar running to monitor changes)

And does it monitor "everything" at all times while running [...]
Everything. Any changes made in the library folder - taggings, renamings, movings, etc.
