Support - (fb2k) / Possible error "Track information" database could not be written" since 1.4
Last post by Rollin -
Since foobar2000 version 1.4 i sometimes get error "Track information database could not be written (Acces denied)" when closing player.

If i press Retry (Повтор), everything is OK.
As i never seen this error before 1.4, i guess it is somehow connected with using of  transacted NTFS . Also, i should note that i never had any problems with saving fb2k's configuration and database if player was normally closed. And nothing was changed in my system.
So, is it possible that using of transacted NTFS not always works as expected?
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: External Tags

Question: how is the component supposed to work with "/" in ID3 tags? ID3 was invented by someone who didn't know enough about music to think about AC/DC ...

Feature request - although I am a bit hesitant to post such, given the work you have to put into it:
Is there a way from within foobar2000 to check if the media file is more recently updated than the tags file - or has different tags? Reasons:
* Tagging with other applications. Picard, MP3Tag, CUETools ...
* General robustness towards errors or mistakes or "potentially unwanted" behaviour. (Inter alia, the "/"?)

 (btw, I fully understand the backwards compatibility concern, but with all this testing I have had so many .tags files open in Notepad++ for human reading ...)

Test versions taken down as I released a new version with the changes. The file move issue Porcus reported with folder tags also affected APE tags so that was fixed too. Only other change from the third test version is that "Edit file tags" menu isn't shown when only selecting streams or archives.

Hmm. Ok, The Release Date from the "webgui" =>
shows "2008-16-12".

How can I see the invalid date, like you see it? 8-)
year 2008, month 16, day 12.
OMG... thank you. I fixed the release date.

Just another note to:

Oh, thats not a good fix. Now, every second or third release will not open.
Some [M]aster releases do not open after some hours of work with tagging music with the fine component.
Foobar2000 restart is necessary to open the Master Release (and show all the releases) again.

For my testing I used "Figub Brazlevič" as artists and "Audiodope" as Filter.

The two shown results were
[M] Audiodope 02, 2013
[M] Audiodope 03, 2016
but the first (Audiodope 02, 2013) couldnt be opened.

(I guess its hard to reproduce as it worked fine after some tests, the glitch came after some hours of tagging...)
Vinyl / Re: 192/32 needed for digitized vinyl to sound as analogue as possible
Last post by BrilliantBob -
If I take a look closer to my new Cds (EAC accurately ripped and so on), I can't understand why the "factory default" CD sound is likely flat, louder and way beyond the full scale (0 dB). All right, sounds good for a boombox but for my PC Hi-Fi system it's a little bit more harshly. I have to de-amplify to -12dB and then to make some compression and normalization to -3dB to get an acceptable sound from CD. I tested CDs from various artists, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Genesis, Alan Parsons, The Band, Fleetwood Mac, Manfred Mann's Earth Band and all sounds are way beyond the full scale (0 dB). Is this a CD standard? Not happend when I record the same LPs from new vinyls to DSD 5.6 MHz and then converted to wav 196/32, 96/32, 48/32 or 44/16.
WavPack / wavpack support in 7zip (3rd party plugin)
Last post by kC_ -
I normally use the wavpack frontend gui but only just came across this not sure if its already known about, but may help others..

seems to work pretty well, simply extract the required 64/32 bit version into a subfolder called codecs
e.g C:\Program Files\7-Zip\Codecs

then select audio files & archive
in the additional parameters field enter
yx=0 0=WavPack2 1=lzma:d20 b0s1:1

would be nice if 7zip jist automatically did this kind of like winzip does with the zipx format, but still this plugin seems to work well enough (but you can only include audio files)
