Audio Hardware / Re: Searching for a tube amp / compressor
Last post by oo131193oo -
ok just in case i wrote it not clear:  i already own the two jbl monitors...
And so a tube amp just can add warm sound and distortion ? Is there a hearable difference to VST ?
Seems like i better stay with my jbls and my behringer equalizer..
General - (fb2k) / Re: Can foobar can remain partially off screen when switching from Clone > Extended?

Hi kode54

Thanks for the reply.  OK, so it is a Windows thing...  But I don't fully follow what you say in the second half of your reply.  Are you saying that an application can get passed the Windows behaviour by "saving" where the windows are on the screen as a configuration (or possibly two separate configurations; one for cloned and one for extended)?  Or have I totally misunderstood?  If I am right, is something like this available in foobar, or perhaps via an additional component?   

If none of that's a goer, can anyone think of another way around it?  I've been look at some freeware apps that manage dual/multi screens.  Things like Dual Monitor Tools and MurGeeMon.  Can't quite get to grips with them yet, and I think they do A LOT of stuff which I wouldn't need.  But what might help is if you can have window layout configurations with a hotkey shortcut assigned.  At least then when I switch between cloned and extended I can just hit the relevant hotkey to have all my windows magically jump back to where I want them.  Not sure if that's possible though... 

If anyone knows anything about any of this - please chime in!

Aaaand? Does that asymmetric search disregard "all-caps" strings? I remember it was all about diacritic characters (in Polish: ą, ę, ś, ć, ń, ż, ź, ó, ł). And as far as I remember it was supposed to work like this:
- non diacritic search gives both non diacritic and diacritic results;
- diacritic search gives only diacritic results

Looks you edited your post with link. Seems we have tertiary model, while secondary could be better...

I've been using cassettes in the 90's myself, but I don't remember Cobalt tapes.
Interesting. I've never heard about cobalt tapes! Never seen them in any store back then, and I was browsing in many audio stores back then. The only "out of the ordinary" tapes I've seen where very expensive "ceramic casing type IV" tapes, but I suspect these were just BS. I guess these were the "gold HDMI cables" of their time :P

But cobalt, never heard of that one.

Well, normally I listen to Trance and Progressive House, but I like all the good music, not only electronic, so today it happened that I wanted to listen to "Get Lost" by Gossip. I switched to playlist with all my physical CDs ripped, hit F3 and typed "GET LOST". Exactly "GET LOST" as Caps Lock was accidentally pressed a while ago. And guess what - I found nothing... I switched off Caps Lock and typed simply "get lost" and I found the track that I wanted to listen to. I thought that maybe "get" and "lost" are some key words, as at least "get" seems to be HTTP command - I was thinking about searching in foobar with words like HAS, IS, NOT. So I just witched CL on again and typed "JOYFUL NOISE". And again nothing showed up. Typing "joyful noise" returned whole Gossip album.

So - is it a new bug or is it an old feature, that search queries typed in Caps Lock does not give results? I never tried that before...
General Audio / Re: This is a High Resolution Listening test

6 times with speakers, 7 times with headphones.

Not sure what this test is about though. The results are the same with 44.1kHz and 22.05kHz and 16-bit. It doesn't sound different. Theoretically, 24-bit could allow very silent audio to be clearer, but I don't think higher sample rate will offer any advantages whatsoever.
