Probably went out of business because no one in their right mind wanted his stupid junk other than the idiots with the money to waste on it.
Atma-Sphere is out of business? His website doesn't suggest that, though.

I quite like the retro design of the MA-2 and MA-3 amps, especially the old-style VU meters. Makes me wanna get a bunch and use them for a small module that displays CPU load or something.

FLAC / Re: script to update all music library to 1.3.2
Last post by polemon -
Is it actually worth bothering reconverting to a newer FLAC version?

I'd assume the compression might be a little better in the newer versions, but anything else than that?

Alternatively you can use Ferocious resampler for downsampling

https://github.com/jniemann66/ReSampler/releases/tag/v1.3.6

I do not comment on sound quality, but I used these parameters with great results

-r 44100 -b 16 --dither --mt --doubleprecision    (no aliasing)

or

-r 44100 -b 16 --dither --mt --doubleprecision --lpf-cutoff 92 --lpf-transition 9                 (slight aliasing)

It guards against clipping by default (unless explicitly switched off).

If you want to downsample to 48000 Hz, just change the -r parameter.

Oops! Sorry, HydrogenAud.io haven't send mail to me any longer from Unknown days.
I haven't noticed for your message.

foo_video is very picky at file extensions.
Yes, Because...
Code: [Select]
std::vector<const char*> extensionsList{".mp4", ".mkv", ".avi", ".mpg", ".flv"};
My skill was very poor at the days.
foo_video is first C++ programing to me.
Someday, I must change this code.

I've seen his preamps go for ca. $500 as used gear. Not really good residual value...

I wouldn't even bother to use his preamps if they were free.  From the manual it looks like pure junk that doesn't last long.  I've left computers on 24/7 for years and only needed to replace fans or drives after a couple of years.  For something that's supposed to amplify sound it certainly doesn't last that long considering you have no moving parts other than a simple fan in some amplifiers.

If I can get something off ebay that still works 20 or 30 years after it was made or needs new capacitors to last another 20 or 30 years then that's fine to me.  Having to replace parts every 5 months is wasteful and makes me think that the product Atamsphere was selling is an unreliable piece of junk.  A product shouldn't need to be repaired every 5 months to continue working properly.  Probably went out of business because no one in their right mind wanted his stupid junk other than the idiots with the money to waste on it.

Very simple one for recompressing FLAC. Has to be run in folder where we want to do it.

dir /b /s *.flac > flac.txt
for /f "usebackq delims=|" %%f in (flac.txt) do flac.exe "%%f" --force --verify >> results.txt

Thanks, I am looking into the two threads.

Isn't that ironic?  The audiophool has a company in the Twin Cities and not far away either.

*throws brick through business window with a note attached saying "Stop committing fraud ya fool from the HydrogenAudio Forums called "Atmasphere""*

Dude, no violence, please. AJ and greynol know you, listen to them.

Nah, I wanted "Atamsphere" to crap his pants a little, so he wouldn't be so full of crap.  No point in violence.


Checked Google street view on the address and there is a very good chance that he's been out of that address for some time.

Current tenants seem to be a home healthcare agency and a computer repair shop.


Maybe the Attorney General Lori Swanson shut down his business for fraud?  Or most likely he didn't really get that much business.
