Thanks for the comments :) I too realized that this "problem" might be better off posted on the general topic forum, but I wasn't really sure about it so I ended up posting it here.

The tracks are purchased tracks from an online store, so this would not be the case.

The thing is, I would like to have my files joined album-wise because it is easier and more comfortable for me to manage them that way. If there was an update to the cuesheet format that would be really great.. Especially in these days the music files people are dealing with are not limited to CD resolutions, so the old cuesheet format might need an update to better serve the modern era. It shouldn't be really hard to update it while keeping it compatible with the old format, but I guess the real problem would be whether there is enough need to actually do this.

Except £15 is a lot less than $50 :) Well built and will last along with all those other things don't come for £15.

If it's an error in the track you downloaded and paid for then report it :)

I want to convert my ~2k files with AC3 5.1 and AC3 2.0, should I wait for opus 1.3? What settings do you guys recommend to opus 5.1 and opus 2.0 to achieve transparency ? File size isn't really a issue here, I just want to have a library fully open source

If file size isn't the problem: Keep the your files as-is, in AC3. You've got nothing to gain quality wise, only to lose. AC3 is so old it *may* already be "free" in terms of patents having expired or being close to expiring and there are open-source implementations.

I still care about streaming my stuff, and AC3 isn't supported on most platforms I stream : browsers, phone.  Only my streaming boxes like chromecast/roku can accept AC3 but I think plex still transcode it lol...  and opus is "future proof"

And I thought there is a transparent quality where the quality will be identical?

For smooth loudness changes use a compressor for the microdynamics, rather than a "leveller" for the macrodynamics.

i will check it, thanks.

and the R128 normalization. it delivers some sort of real radio feeling somehow. it is definetely a great option for parties (in my case).

i am not a programmer, even if interested, but when the lookahead is seeing a louder part coming, the sound gets noticeable reduced in also noticeable steps.

if i could program this, i would add an exponential curve that gets applied to the part where the sound gets loude (or quiet), i mean to deliver a "smooth" loudness change.

it sounds pretty easy to look at this with simple mathmatical terms, but like i said i do not know code (except some html), so i do not know if this is going to be lots of work to implement. but it would be great!

Well, that was just posted in totally wrong thread... Currently the preferred way is to drag & drop them - both in order to change their order and in order to enable / disable them (dragging between active and unused lists). And as far as I understand you, this is something that makes impossible to easily use DSP manager with screen readers... Despite I don't use them, I would also welcome restoration of Add / Remove and Up / Down buttons, as an alternative option for managing DSP chains.

hey again!

when i load the .tags file that i created for a folder containing gamecube .adx files, m-tags uses the folder name as the title for "all" .adx files.

which is strange because it worked well with my .flac files for example.

any idea how to fix that?

EDIT: i see. it adds |1 to the end of the file name: "@" : "101 - title.adx|1",

it wouldn't be "that" problem to delete this automatically, but also interesting why m-tags is doing that for .adx files.

EDIT2: i will check the dedicated m-tags section soon as well.

For M-Tag you should check for its dedicated thread here at HA, and maybe there is an answer how to transfer tags between databases (file based and M-Tags based). Thread should be linked on component's download page.
