Other Lossy Codecs / Re: SACD to lossy vs. CD to lossy: do sample rate and bit depth matter?
Last post by pipoawas -
Well, I believe that the target-question should be: "How to correctly feed a DSD into a lossy encoder in order to obtain the best possible quality result ?"
That's another good way of putting it, yes  ;)

  Just because you can hear pure-loud 20kHz signals in a hearing test doesn't mean you'll hear them in music.   And not everybody can hear up to 20kHz. 
(...)
But if you have too much frequency range sometimes you can get unwanted side-effects with subsonic or ultrasonic signals or capability...   You don't want subsonic or ultrasonic "junk" going through your amplifier and to your speakers

Two pertinent facts, thank you. Also, DC in audio? A continuous voltage? That isn't even audio anymore, why did the MP3 format allow that?

The filter length is 729, longer than the other two filters (641), so will take more processing power. However, despite the longer filter length, noise rejection below 20kHz and above 50kHz is still slightly worse than the other two shorter filters. The S-Audio filter probably spend too much on the not very meaningful "passband ripple of 0.00001 dB".

What's that spike at 1KHz?  It can't be that most of the music is situated at around 1KHz range.
EDIT:  Got it, it wasn't music, just a sinewave test, at 1KHz   O:)


Thanks for your inputs guys.  :))

Support - (fb2k) / Re: Playback highlight does not follow track 'Now Playing'
Last post by Treelady -
Sorry for such a basic question, but in my Library Viewer, the highlighted track does coincide with the track playing.
If you have Playback -> "Cursor follows playback" enabled, your "purple bar" will always highlight the track playing at the commencement of every track change, until or if you opt to "browse unfettered". If you're browsing Finns, once there's the track change from Midnight Oil's "Rising Seas" to "The Barka..." the highlight will reflect that 'til you go back to browsing


THIS - That is what I needed. Thank you John.   -- The confusion is cursor follows playback has an expressly specific meaning in professional audio.  It means that when you stop playing, it will pick up again.  The other option is playback returns the the starting point when play was hit (in a track).  So, this language means something else to me.  Sorry for the dumb question, and thank you all for taking time out of your day to respond.

Last post by DClaville -
yes but if you select a artist or genre and even just one album and want to play a different track then what is playing currently you have to be able to select it and click play or double click it. so you cant do that but as i said you can just add the playing column so it shows what track is being played as it seems thats what you are after

And what you are browing in on the left side is a different component called Library viewer that is separate from play list viewer that you have on the right side there

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: JScript Panel script discussion/help
Last post by ms1602 -
Thanks for the help!

I noticed that if there are only 2 graphics in the folder (for example, front and back covers), when I go to the second photo, it automatically changes to the first one after a second or two. When there are 3 photos (front cover, back cover, disc) this problem does not occur. One more question - if the name of the disc file is also in .png, should I enter:

this.files.push(this.folder + "\\disc.jpg;disc.png");

?

Edit:

Okay, I see that now the covers saved in the file are not displayed, only those in the folder. Can't you combine it so that the built-in ones and those in the folder are displayed? Do you have to do either way?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're saying.

I dont think thats possible and if it did that how could you browse around while something is playing?

I've always been able to browse unfettered while anything else plays.

Here I'm viewing a Neil Finn record (and any other one I want) while Midnight Oil Plays.

Support - (fb2k) / Playback highlight does not follow track 'Now Playing'
Last post by Treelady -
Sorry for such a basic question, but in my Library Viewer, the highlighted track does coincide with the track playing.  For example, if I start a record, the 'focus band' will remain on track 01, despite being on another track.   In the following graphic, a purple bar shows where I started, but a white dotted box (added for this example) shows the track that is actually playing.

All other components, lyrics, wave displays, follow the track, but the Library Viewer doesn't show what is 'Now Playing"  Is there a setting that I'm missing?

Support - (fb2k) / foo_upnp / stream videos to the network
Last post by ANGO -
The upnp server runs well with audio files. But if there are video files in the playlist, only audio will be played. The video files are recognized as audio files.

Is there a possibility to stream videos to the network via Foobar?

FOR SMP PACKAGES:
Update of following packages
- {E85C9EF0-778B-46DD-AF20-F4BE831360DD} - Library Tree, version: 2.2.0-Beta.1 -> 2.4.0
- {F5E9D9EB-42AD-4A47-B8EE-C9877A8E7851} - Find & Play - 1.0.0-Beta.1 -> 1.3.0
----
I wrote this text to help those who will have difficulty installing and configuring this version of SMP.
I hope this will be useful. Maybe you can use it to repackage a new version of release and also update the readme, and your installation page. So the product of your work is still alive since 2022.
Note to users : as for an x64 version of the product, do not count on it, that would suppose that all the dll components are compiled in x64.
-----------------------------------------------------------
@TheQwertiest,
Perhaps you can do a new bundle of : 5.0.1 or 5.1.0 in

https://github.com/TheQwertiest/CaTRoX_QWR/releases
with
- {E85C9EF0-778B-46DD-AF20-F4BE831360DD} - Library Tree, version: 2.2.0-Beta.1 -> 2.4.0
- {F5E9D9EB-42AD-4A47-B8EE-C9877A8E7851} - Find & Play - 1.0.0-Beta.1 -> 1.3.0 ?
, an update in changelog
, a note for installation compatibility (with what I wrote above), and update instructions here : https://theqwertiest.github.io/CaTRoX_QWR/docs/installation/ .

Thank you,
This is my way of thanking you, and trying to avoid that others often ask you these questions.
Regards.

I just registered here because of your post to thank you. I like the Catrox theme, but had problems and error messages.
I was able to fix some. Thank You! :)

I also shared two additional solutions to issues with the developer:
Panel crash 1: https://github.com/TheQwertiest/CaTRoX_QWR/issues/24
Panel crash 2: https://github.com/TheQwertiest/CaTRoX_QWR/issues/21

I hope there is an update in the future.
