WavPack / Re: WavPack 5.5.0 Release Candidate
Last post by Porcus -
So it seems that the status on file restore and foreign metadata is as follows, assuming compliant < 4GB files, excluding raw PCM - and excluding the TTA and WMAL formats:

WAVE: WavPack/Monkey's/OptimFROG/TAK/ALS do full file restore by default. Monkey's and ALS "enforce" this: they have no provision to switch off metadata storage (but by now support piping, so can be fed just a PCM stream, and metadata can be destroyed by outputting to different format). FLAC can optionally store the metadata but has no ambition of recreating the file structure. (ref)ALAC has no such provision.
All accept both old WAVE and WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE input, all can force WAVE output regardless of input (well TAK/OFR cannot do anything else but .wav and raw) - but none have an option to select output between the two.

RF64/BWF/w64: Essentially as .wav support as goes FLAC/WavPack/Monkey's/ALS. refalac supports RF64(/BWF?) but not w64. OptimFROG/TAK have no support for these.

AIFF: Monkey's supports big-endian with full file restore, reject the little-endian - apparenty ALS as well. FLAC reads both endiannesses as infile but upon asked to output AIFF will write only big-endian. Again FLAC has no ambition to preserve file structure.

CAF: WavPack. User can force either endianness for output. Monkey's seems to have gotten it, but I don't know what endianness(es) (haven't tested the fixes after initial .caf-supported version bugged) - presumably with full restore, as that is how the ape works.

AU/SND: Monkey's only. Presumably with full restore.


Yeah, AIFF is on my wish-list, and in fact there's a half-done version in an old GitHub branch. I got bogged down on ID3v2.2 support

2.two ... and then you got 2.4. And who knows about Lyrics (is that extension even possible in WAVE/AIFF?)

But if you don't need to import them to WavPack's tagset, is this in principle any worse than what you do about ID3v2.nonthree-tagged .dsf?

(don't ask).
Oops I did it again.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Playlist-Tools-SMP

More test. With your last github files, no old files.

Using the _switchPaths.bat

The 32bit test didn't work in this .bat. I must copy the fart_32.exe to fart.exe to run the .bat.

After this the buttons_toolbar.js didn't crash foobar anymore, but crashes the panel. The readme popups are shown

FLAC / Re: FLAC v1.3.4
Last post by Porcus -
Also, maybe for situations when it's not really about sound, just some physical processes, maybe radio frequency even. (archives/test cases for software-defined radio?) Possibly useful if the signal may share some statistical properties with that of sound, making it somewhat compressible by similar algorithms.
(But then, even ~1Mhz might not be a high enough upper limit)
--> over at the WavPack forum: https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,122626

WavPack handles "any .wav" sampling frequency, that is integers up to 4 GiHz. That covers most amateur radio bands. (There are radio bands above https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9-centimeter_band , and then ... well, out of luck :-o)

The only practical application I know of for such high sampling rates in terms of music production is capturing the bias signal present on tape to digitally correct temporal distortions, ie. Plangent Process
