General Audio / Re: MQA (at least on Tidal Masters) sounds "muddy" to me. Am I nuts?
Last post by greynol -
But these fossils are believed since they have long and successful careers in the industry. Of course being a fossil guarantees a loss of the ability to hear high frequencies, those frequencies being the cornerstone of the technology. There’s also the attempt to fix an unknown problem, and surely other things I’ve missed.

General Audio / Re: MQA (at least on Tidal Masters) sounds "muddy" to me. Am I nuts?
Last post by Wombat -
We had a long thread already about the MQA nonsense.
The only attempt for a fair comparison i know between MQA and non MQA was organized by Archimago at his blog. MQA sounding muddy was surely not the outcome.
At Tidal i doubt you can do comparisons easily because almost certainly the MQA versions are different masters and even if they come from the same nobody knows what things were exactly done to the MQA version.

Many glorifying reports on forums are coming from shills being part of fossilized gangs of the audio business hoping to make money like in the good old times.
I don't remember this video was linked here already:

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: External Tags
Last post by Nisto -
@Case: Really unfortunate about the inability to automatically refresh the displayed tags. It worked in earlier versions - what has changed? Are you required to pre-create the external tags for it to work?

There seems to be some bugs. In my case, simply opening "edit file tags" and doing a "remove tags" on a FLAC file won't save the changes (I've looked at the actual file outside of foobar2000; it still has the same timestamp and binary data). Also, adding a new tag will remove all the tag data - yikes!

Vinyl / Re: Needle Drop?
Last post by JabbaThePrawn -
I've digitised a few hundred LPs, EPs and singles, and still don't have a word for it. "Rip" doesn't feel right, and "needle-drop" sounds like an expensive accident.

Support - (fb2k) / playlists (I mean bug)
Last post by zadane -
1/ Clicking on CUE file (disk 1 of two-disc set)
2/ Add file (CUE file for disk 2 of two-disc set)
3/ Save playlist (m3u)
I get this (list of M3U):
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 2).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 2).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 2).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 2).CUE
instead of wanted
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 1).CUE
1968 (03) Wheels Of Fire\Wheels Of Fire (Disc 2).CUE

Of course, I could use FPL playlist. Foobar treats correctly this playlist (and I don't mind its 7 times bigger.) 
But (Foobar or my Win7) cannot remember association with FPL files and no system facility (or reinstalling
Foobar or anything I know) can repair it.  This may look silly, but "manually" correcting m3u files 
(once after creating) is smaller problem for me than answering "use Foobar" every clicking FPL.

Any third way out (like debugging M3U creation)?
(As FPL works fine, algorithm for creating playlist when CUE files used  is already done.) 

Thanks, Marian

General - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 safe mode ?
Last post by Case -
People offer alternate solutions because they try to help you. Would you prefer no replies or a simple "No" reply?

I'm pretty certain Peter has zero interest in adding a kiosk mode for foobar2000. If the kiosk mode is a setting in the program whoever has ill intentions can just as easily disable it as he can edit the settings in normal mode. If the simplification is wanted in an alternate product it already exists - Boom.

You don't want to hear this but IMO the best way to protect your files is to use access rights and give the suspicious user only read access.
