i purchased a very nice vintage Pioneer Pl-560 turntable w/ a Grado GT cartridge. During the playing of some records i hear distortion from mainly the left channel. I have adjusted all aspects of the turntable ie; leveling' azimuth, balancing the tonearm, etc. I guess what I'm trying to determine could this be due to the cartridge failing or is something else the culprit. Hoping some one can give me some insight.did you manage to fix the problem i have just bought a pl560 same problem
I can try to implement Unicode support using the same piece of code as the Windows FLAC uses. That makes it quite simple, as it implements support for both command line arguments and fopen with UTF-8 strings, and converts them to UTF-16 for Windows' Unicode API.
But as you're more interested in transparent quality/high bitrate, forget this. It won't happen.
Volume is sometimes lowered (by -0.1 or -0.2 dB) with lossy encoders in order to avoid clipping. It's not really significant.
Thanks - that's a helpful insight
I must have missed this feature. Can you toss me a URL or let me know where I find the info on to set this up ?Here it is: Third-party binaries.
I don't think that was a general recommendation. Opus will resample to 48 kHz (possibly less if you choose a ridiculous bitrate) but there isn't generally anything to be gained by doing it yourself.Haven't heard anything about fixing gapless encoding in Opus.The tiny glitches, not even always audible, between Opus tracks that do not use the latest encoder are not quite the same as not being gapless. Opus is inherently gapless and you'd have to go to special effort to put actual gaps between tracks. I'd expect the glitches to still be present in Android, but it also depends what you use for encoding/transcoding. See this thread for some more details.
Theoretically it's possible if you encode an album as 1 stream and then split it without transcoding - but I'm unsure if there's a tool which can do that properly. (IIRC it's not so simple because in a middle of a stream an Opus packet requires a few previous packets to be decoded accurately)
So there shouldn't be a problem if I batch convert the whole gapless albums with the latest opusenc? That's what I do anyway, I batch convert the FLAC music folders.
lvqcl developer mentions in that topic: "If your input files are 44.1 kHz: try to resample to 48kHz before encoding". opusenc resamples to 48 kHz before encoding.
Why not convert an album or two and see what you think. I don't think you'll have a problem with the gapless playback. Any glitches are extremely minor which is why it took so long to work out what the OP was hearing on the other thread. I'm less confident about the replaygain, but it should be possible to get it to do what you want even if it takes a bit of experimentation.
