Opus / Re: Suggestion for a simple psychoacoustic improvement: transient bit-boost.
Last post by Photon -
Even in mp3 there are long & short blocks - you can spend given amount of bits on a short block to encode temporally demanding transient with less tonal resolution, or you can encode with a long block a rich sustained sound for higher tonal resolution at the cost of temporal resolution. I doubt opus would be so efficient if it hadn't similar mechanisms.
I'm already aware that OPUS encodes transients differently just by skimming through the paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1602.04845.pdf

I'm talking about boosting bitrate for transient frames beyond the default behaviour (either by tweaking an existing parameter, or adding a new one).

OPUS is already excellent, don't get me wrong -- just interested in slightly different tunings to squeeze a little more out of it.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / WASAPI shared output (foo_out_wasapis)
Last post by GCRaistlin -
There's a bug in v0.4: if 2 audio devices are present WASAPI output will always use one of them - even if another one is selected.
I have Realtek HDA and Creative Audigy 4. I select WASAPI output for Creative but the sound is going from Realtek HDA. See the attached file.

Support - (fb2k) / PC foobar2000 v1.4 - not picking up proxy settings
Last post by christopher -
In the Networking section of fb2k, you can choose "No proxy", "Use Internet Explorer settings" (aka the Windows system proxy) or "Specify proxy address".

Up to and including v1.3, "Use Internet Explorer" settings worked great. However in v1.4 this function seems to be broken - you have to always manually specify the proxy address. Inheriting the proxy details from Windows / Internet Explorer doesn't work. This is on Windows 7 64-bit.
