Find the money for the measurment mic. Mow 5 lawns. Wash 10 cars. Come one man. Do it right. :)

Remeber that if you use a "App dB meter", or any dB meter as a matter of fact - it always needs to be the same distance from each speaker when you are matching levels.

The other alternative is a speaker relay. Also a bandaid of sorts, true. I never turn anything on or off without the speaker relay disconnected.

thanks. BTW this is a technology that has undergone some recent upgrades in terms of strength of materials and quality of applicator guns. Even headphones labeled universal or windows phone compatible haven't worked. The only thing that has worked is Bluetooth headphones but Bluetooth makes music sound like trash. Do I have an option for something that's actually of decent quality and has mic control. I just got to this amazing site not long ago. It’s really very nice and I will only say thanks for sharing this great information with us.View at custom essay writing service (https://www.essayguardian.com/) page if you are interesting on online essay services.

As I said, I honestly do not have even $1. I also said that I'm all for getting the best sound but unfortunately, I just don't have enough money to buy anything. And if you're asking, "Well, you have a 5.1 setup, you should have at least a bit of money to spare." Well, truth is, I don't. It'd get complicated if I explain why, but really, please just take my word for it :D

There is a memory leak in this plugin, which is very annoying as I have to constantly restart explorer.exe in order to get my memory back. It happens gradually over time after it plays a bunch of songs, and it's really noticeable when you remove and add the deskband constantly from the taskbar. Can you please fix this?

Remove album gain tags from these files.

I am not always using replaygain - only on personal compilation folders... why folders, it's easier for me to sync them with my mobile phone - but I also listen to them at home or at work. I need (hehe) a way to automatically turn it on and apply to playlist.

This closely resembles the classic Radio Shack SPL meter used by many do-it-yourself home audio calibrators (including yours truly)

It's $40 bucks.

Well, it was indeed sold as a set (DVD player + speakers).
If I'm getting you correctly, is it enough to set the speaker volumes to the default zero?

I don't have any control over the frequency response anyway so I guess I might just try to run Adobe Audition, analyze the audio that my external mic receives, and try to set the volumes so that they have the same LUFS loudness.

Thanks for the answers! I really appreciate it.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_random_pools

Amazing. I commend you on this plug! Thank you!
iTunes is starting to feel like that old girlfriend that seemed so nice at the time :o

Anyway, just wanted to ask if it's possible for each pool to be assigned its own playlist to auto-add to.

See screenshot for better understanding. Forgive me if this has been suggested before.

I'm looking for a codec that's suitable to compress the audio of old computer tapes.

Took me a couple tries understand what you need, but the nail finally dropped: you mean something like the audio from Datasette tapes, like for a C64 and a PET, correct?

If that's the case, I remember a dude at some Demo party had a similar system. In case it's the Datasette it's a little tricky because it doesn't use sines for '0' and '1', instead it writes square waves directly onto the tape. He used some sort of App on his phone to generate the files on the fly. I.e. the files were in binary form, and the App would generate the tones and output them through the headphone jack.

Another dude I know keeps the files as MP3s, because the SNR of those tapes wasn't exactly superb to begin with. Especially the tape machines were kinda low-range, etc. He just plays them back on his phone and it works every time. Even with C64 "Turbo Tapes".

So for archival reasons, having binary versions of the information is probably the best way to go, for quick playback from a phone, just go with the most convenient audio format.

EDIT: Just in case anyone cares, the binary files were tiny, even though they were uncompressed. A couple kilobytes at most. I'm guessing that if you'd use anything else but a stream compressor like xz or lz77, you'd get so much overhead it wouldn't even be worth doing.
