General Audio / Re: Fake 24-bit FLAC?
Last post by kode54 -
I think he was trying to imply it's not lossless because you can stuff any data you want into it, including decoded MP3 files. But in that case, CDs aren't lossless either, since you can burn audio tracks from any lossy source you want.

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

It would be because I'm probably doubling the volume of the NukedOPL3, and an update to NukedOPL3 doubled the volume, negating that change. I do need to update the component.

MP3 / Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface?
Last post by A_Man_Eating_Duck -
If you upgrade your gear in the future all you need to do is redo the EQ settings to suit and not have to rerip and reencode your music again in to further "tweaked" mp3s.
You can't save EQ settings as metadata?
The EQ would be set up for his current setup, with different speakers\headphones or even device the EQ might need to be changed to suit. still far less painful then manipulating the sound of the mp3s.

Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding

Given that almost everything written here is incorrect

Given your precision...I find your claim lacking.

My point was very to the point.  It stands by itself why opus can't be considered for music tracks (re: album play and general single play - pick album gain for the gain to use and consider yourself lucky enough).  You can start here.

https://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/codec/current/msg02944.html

as a mid-way point.  If I come to find specifics in the source (it's been a long while since I looked at it) I may update here.  jmvalin made a comment about fb2k doing something on its own.  It's not in the opus spec.  The spec (as I remember, and from reading Monty's very-old-now comments, about opus) looks like opus was intended for video/web play, not music album play.  Microsoft in newer Windows 10 also looks to be using it only for web play (the browser, for audio of videos using opus).

Point is, if it can't do replay-gain right, it won't sound gapless when using RG.  Not even close.  Dismiss RG if you want.  I can't.  And what exactly is your problem with this now?

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Request: fb2k and musicbrainz

Pointers much appreciated. I had a quick look at foo_renamer - there is no documentation but it seems to do the opposite of what I want: Replace normal characters with their "beautified" versions.

Edit: I found the function under Right-click "utilities". Indeed, it renames characters to the opposite of what I want. Furthermore, the characters in the settings dialogue cannot be changed, "APPLY" is greyed out when I type in a different character.
