"Last custom version of HTTP Control is needed"
This is the key... It requires a *custom* version of this component. Google the app, or have a look somewhere in the help screens I think (I don't have it in front of me right now).
The latest post I just read said that the difference between an R2R DAC and a Delta-Signal DAC is "night and day" and no blind testing is necessary because of that. Soon as someone says that no blind testing is necessary, alarm bells go off in in my head.
I lived happily with a schiit bitfrost ("uber" model, non-multibit) for a number of years, then purchased the multi-bit upgrade for that unit. I found a noticeable/audible improvement to the sound. It is hard to quantify, but all my music sounded better: more clear, less harsh, better detail. Given that I had liked the huge improvement of my original bitfrost (over cd and dvd player internal dacs), I was worried the multi-bit upgrade would be unnoticeable, but that was not the case. It was a very satisfactory upgrade.
The program is set up with a copy of lame_end.dll in its own directory, the program's Encoder tab setting seems to recognize it, and the program's Device tab setting points to line-in. The problem is the lack of any way to record (or playback) from within the program.
Below the audio display is a panel normally full of icons. One of these is a red record button. It was there initially but disappeared somewhere between first display and getting the configuration in place.
The rest of the icons are displayed -- prior to opening an mp3 file. When I open a file, all of them disappear.
Is anyone making the equipment? Cutting lathes, etc.? From what I understand they are maintaining old equipment and there is a "shortage", but maybe not enough demand to stimulate new production. Is that true, or can you buy a brand-new LP-lathe?
The problem area is actually pressing machines, not lathes. But there is at least one new pressing machine now in production.
Seems to me I saw an automated machine in production as well.
And of course, that's the LAST format AFTER you've "arrived".Not sure how to interpret that. Remember a band called Arcade Fire? They had a number one hit a couple of years ago. They were on an independent label, but you could find their LP at Best Buy, Target and almost any record shop, nation-wide. Google...
And, I'd guess half of that is probably purchased as a collectible, never to be played as music... That's fine, but compare it to T-shirt or poster sales, not music sales.
Although an obvious strawman, are you seriously suggesting that $500,000 is going to spent by (mostly) kids on recordings they will never play? On its face, that sounds pretty ludicrous. Do you have any evidence for that?
nevermind I was being dumb
and can't delete posts on here wtf?
Compatibility of WMA Pro with various platforms is very limited. It has pretty good quality, but it never took off.
Can't tell if you're joking or drank too much Sony kool-aid, but no. Close to "perfect" for 2ch in homes, sure.No, I'm not joking, and of course I'm talking about 2-channel stereo. And, I'm talking about the traditional understanding of "audio quality" ... Noise, distortion, and frequency response.
According to Forbes, LP sales are projected to be over a billion$ US this year, first time this century.Is anyone making the equipment? Cutting lathes, etc.?

In my town, your band simply has not arrived until it has a vinyl release. There's lots of local bands with LP titles and its been that way for 20 years. It might be different in other towns, but I can name a few other metro areas where the same thing is happening- New York, Chicago, Denver, Seattle...And of course, that's the LAST format AFTER you've "arrived".

Isn't WMA kind of a dead format? The encoder is choosing to use that low bitrate setting btw. Try using AAC or OGG...
The recent listening tests showed that both could achieve transparency at very low bitrate settings.
Always worth remembering that new CD sales still outnumber new vinyl, something like five or ten to one depending on which region you look at. And are still comparable to "album downloads" (excluding streaming). Out of the three, only vinyl is increasing (with blips) but it would be massively premature to think it is going to be the major player any time soon, even given the inflated prices for new vinyl. I guess that doesn't make for good headlines ...

Not if you want to stick with columns ui.
There is a sorta workaround but it requires work. You can encapsulate each filter window in its own panel stack splitter and extend it beyond the horizontal splitter size which would hide the scrollbar underneath the splitter. Repeat for each filter window.
