3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: External Tags
Last post by sveakul -
Thanks Case for the explanation.  As I understand it then, the changelog entry meant that the reload info call was just eliminated in cases of initially creating the external tag, not when going back to it later to change/add data and using the "Edit External Tags" menu selection.

This leads  me to a related question.  So when editing an already created APEv2 external tag for a stream, is there any difference/preference in doing so via the "Edit External Tags" choice which first does a reload info prior to bringing up Properties, or by just selecting "Properties" right off?  Is the first choice really only needed when the tag is being initially created?

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_midi
Last post by betr -
Sorry if this is an old topic, but I'd really love foo_midi to provide a separate volume control for MIDI output - at least a volume slider on the Preferences page.

There are two reasons: 1) the various MIDI playback methods can be drastically different in volume, which means our MIDI playback may be significantly louder or quieter than normal, and we may want to adjust the volume at the same time we select our MIDI options. 2) Unlike PCM audio, we can't batch-adjust gains on MIDI files.

Personally, I find Secret Sauce (my main playback option) so extremely quiet I need to turn up the system volume for certain songs to be sufficiently loud. I would prefer being able to mix MIDI and non-MIDI files in a playlist without having to worry about volume.

They are sounding bad.
I don't hear a difference between mp3 and flac with them.

You may want to rethink your understanding of audio codecs or be a little more exact in your statements.

In addition to smaller file size, a main point of mp3 is that there is a bit rate in which it is indistinguishable from lossy.

Not hearing a difference between Flac and Mp3 [at some encoded bit rate which differs across people] is expected outcome.

It is not a sign that some piece of hardware is faulty.

OTOH, if your preference is for less bass, certainly differing headphones have differing frequency responses.

OR, you could save cash and use an equalizer.

What do you mean, headphones aren't made for lossless? Headphones are headphones, either they are good or bad sounding, they don't give a rat's ass what you feed to them.

Because some headphones have "bass boosted", "ideal for this and this genre" or whatever in their description.
Too much bass is deadly for metal at all because you only hear wrrrrrr.

What did you use before, if you are not satisfied with the current ones? What is the problem with the current ones?

The headphones are 24.99 bucks hardware piece.
I used to have Teufel headphones they were way better.
But I want to have even better ones to unlock full capabilities of lossless audio.
Lossless music is nothing with cheap or crappy hardware like devices, headphones etc.

My actual end device for portable music listening is a Samsung Galaxy S8 in combo with the Sennheiser CX300 II.
It's a pretty cheap equipment, but I did as much as I can to get the best out of it, like magisk audio mods, kernel editing etc.
So I even need better earphones and asked for help.
