MP3 / Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface?
Last post by A_Man_Eating_Duck -
If you upgrade your gear in the future all you need to do is redo the EQ settings to suit and not have to rerip and reencode your music again in to further "tweaked" mp3s.
You can't save EQ settings as metadata?
The EQ would be set up for his current setup, with different speakers\headphones or even device the EQ might need to be changed to suit. still far less painful then manipulating the sound of the mp3s.
Opus / Re: Opus gapless and glitchness encoding

Given that almost everything written here is incorrect

Given your precision...I find your claim lacking.

My point was very to the point.  It stands by itself why opus can't be considered for music tracks (re: album play and general single play - pick album gain for the gain to use and consider yourself lucky enough).  You can start here.

as a mid-way point.  If I come to find specifics in the source (it's been a long while since I looked at it) I may update here.  jmvalin made a comment about fb2k doing something on its own.  It's not in the opus spec.  The spec (as I remember, and from reading Monty's very-old-now comments, about opus) looks like opus was intended for video/web play, not music album play.  Microsoft in newer Windows 10 also looks to be using it only for web play (the browser, for audio of videos using opus).

Point is, if it can't do replay-gain right, it won't sound gapless when using RG.  Not even close.  Dismiss RG if you want.  I can't.  And what exactly is your problem with this now?

Pointers much appreciated. I had a quick look at foo_renamer - there is no documentation but it seems to do the opposite of what I want: Replace normal characters with their "beautified" versions.

Edit: I found the function under Right-click "utilities". Indeed, it renames characters to the opposite of what I want. Furthermore, the characters in the settings dialogue cannot be changed, "APPLY" is greyed out when I type in a different character.

Music databases deal with human-readable titles in natural language with complete punctuation, not filenames. MusicBrainz isn't unique in this regard, exept maybe in that it requires diacritics in French uppercase and Italian too.

You can use $replace() function to define a table when renaming with File Operations, followed by $ansi() to remove all remaining special characters. I use $replace() by default in my collection to avoid compatibility issues with old software, and also save the cleaned "ascii filename" in a tag field for non-English titles, so it can be restored later or searched by. See this example in Mp3Tag for a proposed table for common symbols.

The substitution should really be configurable to permit choosing whether a character is replaced by one or two symbols (ä->ae,å->aa,ā->aa). A tabular GUI for configuring this is something I don't expect to see in Foobar.

Not sure what the maximum number of parameters for replace() in Foobar is. It is sufficient to handle a few languages.
