Other Lossy Codecs / Re: Quite OK Audio (QOA)... anyone ?
Last post by Kraeved -
I feel that the final word about lossy codecs for transparent music listening has not been spoken yet, that's why am quite excited about QOA. Musepack is an underrated gem that could have become the advanced heir to MP3 but somehow it didn't happen, OGG Vorbis (not to mention Opus with its own quirks) could be less resource-intensive and faster in terms of decoding, Apple's supervision still casts a shadow on well-tuned (q)AAC. After several weeks of testing QOA, I want to ask for one thing — to improve gapless playback, actually there is an issue on Github.

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

component 0.7.1 on my Foobar2000 2.1 as well. But after calling it from the View/Visualizations menu, the player crashes.
I'm now getting crashes as well with version 0.7.1.0 beta. It began with crashes on exit of foobar2000 and now it crashes at start, I can't run foobar2000 anymore. :( I've put back my profile backup and I'll stick with version 0.6.0.3 for now.
Does fb2k crash or does it hang? A hang is caused by a deadlock which will be solved in the next beta.

Many thanks for this plugin  :D

Bug:
- the tooltip that displays the frequency is right-aligned, but is out of view when displayed for the higher frequencies.

Left-aligning it would work better and may be ok the lowest frequencies too.

CD Hardware/Software / Re: [EAC] I'm no able to copy the first track from a specific CD
Last post by fooball -
I'm trying to copy image + cue using EAC and split the generated .wav file into the tracks using CueTools...
You don't seem to have understood the first few replies to your original post.

These mixed-mode CDs have two separate parts to them: a non-Red Book data area (which a CD player – and EAC – ignores), followed by a standard Red Book section which is essentially continuous WAV data with a cue header [the "Red Book" is the specification for audio CDs].

The non-Red Book data may be MP3 or something, but it won't be WAV.  It's like "bonus" material.  Try looking at the CD in your File Manager rather than with EAC.

Genre can already be remapped to style, so I don't understand your request.

I want to be able to merge multiple tags (genre + style) but that requires a rewrite of the statistics framework which was initially thought for one tag per axis (timeline script).
EDIT: will be possible as long as you separate tags by ', ': '%GENRE%, %STYLE%'

Already noticed the problem with title duplication for different artists, which again requires a rewrite.

About your last concern, what do you mean by duplicates? Show an example. The online version just uses whatever ListenBrainz reports.

General - (fb2k) / Re: Dynamic Loudness Control
Last post by francesco -
1)  I only have a resampler in the chain so that in the rare occasion I'm listening to something whose native sample rate is incompatible with my audio device, I can actually hear it (like some odd radio streams with 22050, 32000, 88200 kHz).  It's set so ONLY the incompatible rates get resampled, all else passed through as-is.  I use Wasapi Exclusive as otherwise I don't want the original sampling rate messed with.  No I do not have a DAC.  BTW the order of the DSP list is important, it is the order in which the effects are applied to the audio.

2)  That's the idea anyway, haha..  Actually it applies an adjustable blend of compression and limiting.  "Loudness" is not the primary goal.

3)  Since Polyverse came out with Wider 2.0, the previous 64-bit version (1.1.3) has been archived and can be downloaded directly here:

The last 32-bit version was 1.0 and can be downloaded here:

thanks I will try settings like yours , and i will test as soon as i can
about the eq , i used to put at the top , but it's not very reactive ,it needs some time to change the audio when i increase /decrease sliders , and i don't think it's the buffer

i use too but sox mod 2 ,just because I can set resample only frequencies , would nice to have wildcars a mod 3 20??? to 43???
do you use Wider only for radio?
well thanks Sveakul , appreciate your help
