General Audio / EAC Generates Incomplete CUE Files with PC Engine CD Rips
Last post by Jedi Master Baiter -
I ripped a mixed mode CD (a PCE/Turbografx CD game), and whenever I try to create a CUE sheet, I only get the first two tracks:

REM GENRE Game
REM DATE 1988
REM DISCID 6F09781A
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v1.3"
PERFORMER "Shofuku"
TITLE "[HCD8002] Fighting Street"
REM COMPOSER "Yoshihiro Sakaguchi"
FILE "Shofuku\[HCD8002] Fighting Street\01 Warning.wav" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "Warning"
PERFORMER "Hudson"
REM COMPOSER "Hudson"
INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 MODEx/2xxx
TITLE "Data Track"
PERFORMER "Shofuku"
REM COMPOSER "Yoshihiro Sakaguchi"
INDEX 00 00:44:65


I believe this is caused by the data track being on track 02 screwing things up (I've generated CUE sheets for mixed mode CDs with the data track being on track 01 with no problems).

How do I get around this?

I also decided to use CUERipper, but that crashes whenever it reads this CD.

Haha :)

That "straight line" above 15 kHz is very common problem. I will simply quote 2Bdecided's post from 2010.

CRT TV in the studio. That's the line whistle - the sound coming from the back of the CRT TV tube at the line frequency of the video signal. 15.625kHz for PAL; 15.734kHz for NTSC.

It's quite common in recordings. Occasionally it can be horribly loud, and people with good high frequency hearing can be annoyed by it. It doesn't "look" that loud in this case though.

Cheers,
David.

In most cases, you can simply ignore it, it will be inaudible.
There are some exceptions, of course.
One of the worst ones I have encountered is "Justify My Love" from Madonna.
I am pretty sure every single person here knows that song. That song is very quiet, lots of whispering and this problem is very audible.
You can "fix" it by using notch filter or playing with eq.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Georgia-ReBORN - A Clean foobar2000 Theme
Last post by TT -


                                               
                                                                   is reborn again!




I present you the last final update before the first public release, this is a truly special one and puts the last final
piece of puzzle in its place to finally complete this theme!

As you have already noticed Georgia-ReBORN has it's own corporate identity ( logo ), every theme has it's own
color modified logo to nicely present and support its theme. There are 11 logos for FHD + 4K in total,
I hope you like them  8)

Now let's move to the highlight of this update and why it's so special.
Last update I've worked on designing and implementing WilB's latest library into Georgia-ReBORN,
as you've already know, theme 'White' and 'Black' has it's own dynamic color based accents that will change
based on album art, it's an awesome feature @MordredKLB has invented. While implementing it to the library,
it reminded me that I wanted ( 1 year ago ) to unleash it's full potential. This means wouldn't it be amazing
if every time you play a new album the whole player would fully change it's color? That's right! I present you
this special theme Options > Theme > Reborn. This is was quite the challenge to realize it, I've put a lot of work
to tune it's tones to generate pleasant themes. I think overall it's pretty cool, once again, every new album you play
will be a 'Reborn' experience. This wouldn't be possible without @MordredKLB work, so credits goes to him, thanks!
Btw, I don't think I have ever saw a music player that has this special feature/theme!

Lets spoil you all with another cool feature, Options > Layout > Artwork
Now this Artwork mode has become a new favorite of mine, it will remove all unnecessary stuff and just show the album artwork.
You can easily switch between panels and also change it's player size Options > Player size. It's pretty cool if you have loaded
your playlist, let the music play and switch to Artwork mode while sitting in your couch or working on your computer while multi tasking...

And last but not least, I have designed 13 disc art placeholders, Options > Details > Disc art > Display disc art placeholder
If you are too lazy to download the disc art from fanart.tv, you can still use these disc art placeholders to enjoy the experience.
There are 4 cd art and 9 vinyl art placeholders designed with love to get you excited and show off to your friends ;)
Be sure to check the option Spin disc art while songs play and I recommend to set Spinning disc art redraw speed to 75ms.
You can also play around with the option Display disc art above cover especially if you use the transparent cd or vinyl placeholder!
You should try Cold fusion, it has the biggest WOW factor, you can also try the bright placeholders with theme White and the dark ones with theme Black.

These were the highlights of this update and I have finally completed this theme, this is also the last final update before the first public release.
In the future, I'll only fix possible bugs if they remain and update components if new versions will be released.
I hope you're pleased with this theme and recommend it to other fellow music lovers, thanks!

Support - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 v1.6.5 - Album Art Viewer showing wrong cover during track change
Last post by Sergey77 -
It seems problem is fixed in 1.6.8
I also noticed that the behavior of the Album Art Viewer has changed, for example for the URL of the playlist items.
But for local files like mp3, the behavior hasn't changed. It is the same as mentioned here: Reply #5
When moving to the next file, the cover changes if the next file has a different album name or a different artist name, this is typical for "Front Cover".
However, this is not the case for "Back Cover" and seems to work as expected here.
I am attaching the video to demonstrate what was said.

Thanks for the component.

Can you explain how should I get playlist items with "/playlists/{playlistId}/items/{range}"?
"/playlists/0/items/0:10?columns=Title" returned items but without column values.

columns are title formatting expressions, so your example will look like

"/playlists/0/items/0:10?columns=%25Title%25"

%25 yields % due to url encoding
