CUETools / Re: Is Cuetools 2.1.7 working? not all decoders/encoders showing.
Last post by ssjkakaroto -
I can duplicate the formats page you're seeing by blocking access to the plugins folder.
Could the new directory you extracted the files to require elevated permissions?
Could you try extracting to a different location and double-check that you extracted everything?

As I hinted above, Gregory should be back in about a week or so.
I checked the permissions and everything was ok. The folder is on a non-system drive even. I tried extracting it to a different folder on another drive and the result is the same. Even running CUETools as administrator doesn't change anything.

CUETools / Re: Manually fixing a rip offset
Last post by blurry_light -
I'm not quite sure a simple offset would introduce such artefacts in an otherwise completely perfectly ripped audio CD [...]

... and the rest of what you point out, means that if the track boundary is so way off as to be audible, the offset issue could be when the master was produced, rather than when the CD was ripped (and +48 samples @1/44100 seconds won't be that much, eh?)

Yeah, I mean, when AccurateRip tells me there's a partial match because my copy has a constant offset throughout all tracks, I often don't even bother with it. It's as if I had a different pressing, that's all.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: %CONTENT GROUP% mapping error
Last post by thomian -
With the new mapping you now must use $if(), where you didn't before, because a mixture of Grouping and Content Group now exist. Select a set of FLAC/WavPack files, add Grouping, two fields appear instead of one. This obscure field is promoted to a standard, but only half-way because Apev2 isn't affected. This new mapping is in no way "compatible with old foobar2000 versions", because the mapping didn't exist until the current version.

This problem would be solved, if all tags are mapped to %grouping% instead of %content group%.
Mapping to %grouping% may even reduce coding effort, because remapping of Vorbis, APE, WavPack etc. would be unnecessary. The tags of MP3, M4A and WMA have to be mapped anyway.

Scientific Discussion / Re: Help me understand why sound is one dimensional
Last post by silverprout -
IMHO the 1D point of view don't conceptualize the reality because all audio measurements are performed by people who have the sound field in mind.


If a person has a picture of what they expect the sound field to be -- and then uses a singular real data point, aren't they really sustituting 'fake' (not necessarily invalid) effective data points for real ones?  No matter what you are imagining, there has to be some kind of framework -- and in space, there are normally 3 dimensions.  One can abstractly create more dimensions for some kind of analysis purpose, but in reality there are three dimensions in space.   Adding more dimensions isn't just describing space, but rather some kind of hyperspace (no scifi here.)

We have a tension, an intensity and time at the input of the loudspeaker coil, we can also try to link the voltage and the intensity through an imaginary thing called phase... also linked with the coil motion... and the air motion... abstraction is infinitely complex.
I only matter about what i'm imagining when i perform a measurement, the loudspeaker surface is radiating within two modes, a pistonic and radiative motion that generate a complex soundfield composed of a cloud of air of physical elementary particles moving relatively coherentely with the emissive surfaces when you are close to them and doing unpredictible things when you get farther (everyting is also highly impacted by the signals)
You should also add all the reflexions and the air volume when you are in a room, as you are probably awared of expertise is everthing and a clever measurement can validate a very complex theory.
If we don't matter about how many dimensions to use, could you say if there is a way to beat a human brain in this field of competence ?

... i'm not as intelligent as Garry Kasparov, but deeper blue is still biting the dust.

Audio Hardware / Re: may i know your favorite headphone?
Last post by jjb70 -
A kind and generous person stole my Sony MDR-Z7's. Looking at replacements I'd have been happy with another pair of Z7's but the UK distributor of Beyerdynamic was selling "B" stock 2 gen T5P's on EBay for £399. I liked the T5P (I have friends who used them so was familiar with the model) but the UK SRP is more than I'd be willing to spend on a pair of headphones. However at £399 it was worth a go so I went for it, despite being called "B" stock the item was unopened and new and I suspect that the distributor has over stocked and are marketing these as "B" stock to avoid devaluing shop stock by advertising it as a 50% discount on regular new stock. I'm delighted with them, and they can easily be driven to a sensible volume directly from my smartphone and tablet and sound terrific without needing a separate headphone amp or DAC. For any other British users of this forum who have had an interest in these headphones but baulked at the cost they should check this opportunity out.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_dsp_effect
Last post by JohnTravolski -
This new version is great, but there is one peculiarity I noticed.  With the playback rate section, if I exit foobar with the playback rate section enabled (and, say, for example, the playback rate at -10%), then whenever I open foobar again, the playback rate will say 0% and the "enabled" checkbox will be turned off.  Despite what the GUI displays, however, the playback rate of the audio remains at -10%.  As soon as I click "enabled" again, then it immediately jumps back to 0%.

Basically, the actual playback rate remains the same, but the GUI doesn't display it correctly after closing and opening foobar.
