Title: How to setup a listening test on linux?
Post by: Losk0 on 2020-12-12 12:21:52
I would like to do some listening tests for vorbis and opus at different bitrates on my LMDE PC (it is debian based).
Just, I don't know which software can be used to the purpose, can you help me?
I apologize if this is an already asked question, I'm totally newbie here.

When I Google ABX software Linux I get

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man1/abx.1.html

I just use Foobar2000 under WINE on my Linux Mint v20.1-Cinnamon PC. then you should be able to ABX with that on Linux. I can't imagine you would have any major issues installing Foobar2000 under WINE for LMDE4.

Install wine package;

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install wine

download foobar2000
associate .exe or .msi files with /usr/bin/wine
run foobar installer, create portable installation in the HOME folder
run foobar2000 as needed from that folder.
