Can someone post optimized x64 binaries?

My Intel C++ config is now broken so not able to build.

General - (fb2k) / Re: [Suggestions / Wishlists] for future updates
Last post by Porcus -
* A "Repository for uninstalled components" folder, and so that the Install button defaults to opening that folder. Suggestion: append version to filename, and touch the "last modified" timestamp to uninstall time.

Reasons:
Sometimes one needs to debug crashes by removing components one by one until the issue disappears. If that is the seventh component, ...
And, I guess is only healthy to get rid of unneeded components from time to time, and then the user can be less cautious about what to uninstall.
In both cases, letting the file explorer sort by uninstall time (= modification time) makes everything easier, I guess.

* And with a folder for "previous versions".


Any subfolder organization can be done by the user in the file explorer, and the user can also delete - no reason for fb2k to keep a database.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Columns UI

Is that your actual layout?
Yep ^^

I would expect that pushing those controls further to the right would move them further away from the items in the tree view for the majority of people, which wouldn't help usability.
Yeah, didn't consider that...

The layout tree view is actually slightly larger than it was in previous versions, if you still need a bigger one I'd argue that the best way to achieve that would be a resizeable preferences window (although, I accept the chances of that happening for the preferences window managed by the foobar2000 core are slim...)
Resizable window would be really useful. May be something like additional 'layout editor' popup window, that is not bound to fb2k preferences page limitations?

I could make it display a custom title instead if one is set. (Not all splitters support custom titles for contained items, though.)
If possible I wanted the ability to add label to every panel, not just splitters. Let me illustrate this with my `awesome` MS Paint skills:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Other possible implementations: `Label` (`Panel Type`) or even only `Label` without panel type.

General Audio / Re: Is it all bull**** now?
Last post by Porcus -
Some people say studio monitors sound flat, but the last time I checked, THAT'S THE POINT. They reproduce sound as accurately as possible, with no "color" or "depth" or "emotion" added to it, so I hear what the recording engineer heard, and what the musician wanted me to hear.

I wonder why a recording engineer wouldn't rather use a tool that magnifies errors so they can be detected (and diagnosed) immediately.

General Audio / Re: Flacit audio legit?
Last post by j7n -
The site appears to be automatically populated from torrents. I downloaded a few mp3 files using the built in player (by changing the song number in the URL), of releases that can't be sold online (Audio Fidelity and MFSL). They use standard p2p naming scheme in the tags.

Face Value {2010 Audio Fidelity 24 KT + Gold, AFZ 084}
Equinoxe [MFSL Ultradisc II UDCD-647]

Unsurprisingly, for an automatically generated collection, not all albums can be played. The MP3 files are Lame-encoded 320 kbit/s, but not gapless.

Looks like a scam.

Development - (fb2k) / dsd wavpack decoding
Last post by amiti -
How does foobar handle dsd compressed files in wavpack input plugin?
Currently it seems the plugin outputs 24bit 352.8khz pcm data.
Is it possible to allow the dsd stream into the sacd input plugin thus processing dsd data with more advanced settings (filters/volume correction/64fp precision)?


Please delete. Updated input sacd plugin is processing wavpack dsd data.

Opus / Re: What is CVBR used for?
Last post by jmvalin -
CVBR can be useful for real-time communication and streaming. It means that the rate is almost constant, but can have short variations as long as they're compensated by opposite variations soon after. In some way, CVBR in Opus is equivalent to what MPEG codecs call CBR (with bit reservoir).

Opus / Re: Opus 1.3-rc2
Last post by jmvalin -
For this look-ahead to work does it needs the input to be a file, or this pipe thing from foobar will also work?
It'll work just fine with a pipe. That's the main advantage of delayed decision compared to two-pass encoding. That being said, the whole point of libopusenc is that applications like foobar can now easily link to a library rather than have to call a separate executable.
