 Replay Gain 1 album?

 
 by brihall on: Feb 29 2008
 
Score 50%

How can I use the ReplayGain tool in soundKonverter to set the album gain for all files selected as a single album, like can be done in foobar2000 on Windows?

The replaygain tool appears to group albums and set the gain within those groups. I want it to calculate across all files I select, no matter what the tags or locations are.

hi, maybe i could add an option to use tags/directories/nothing for grouping albums. but i'm not sure if that's necessary. if you want all tracks played at the same volume, you should use the track gain (that's what it is for).

 Resampling FLAC...

 
 by RonF on: Mar 7 2008
 
Score 50%

Is there a way to modify the existing FLAC plugin to permit resampling? I see that resampling is available for MP3 and OGG encoding, but is lacking for the other formats. Could a FLAC resampling plugin be written, calling mplayer or sox to do the job? This seems a lot more mysterious to me than the plugin I wrote to decode AIFF, so I am not sure how to start.

the flac man page (eg. konqueror: man:flac) shows some 'format options' like --sample-rate=#. but it confuses me a little bit since flac is lossless. so i thought to be better off ignoring these features.
if you know, what you are doing, you can add these options to the flac plugin.
and did you finish your aiff plugin? if you want, you can send it to me so i can include it in the next release.

The FLAC "--sample-rate=#" option is to tell the codec what the sample rate of the input file is, if it cannot figure it out itself, or if it is not 44.1 KHz. It does not serve to resample the input to another rate while generating the output.

I need to resample for the following reason: I have BOV music-video files, (the DVD chapter format - every chapter translates to a BOV file,) where I believe the embedded music track is in AC3 format that plays at 96 KHz - 24 bit samples. I intend to write a plugin for soundKonverter using the mplayer backend that will decode this into a WAV file, but it will be at 96 KHz! I need to be able resample to 48 KHz or 44.1 KHz! I can do all this on the command line, but it would be nice if soundKonverter could "just do it."

The best way I know of doing this now, is to use sox: "sox input.wav -r 48000 output.wav".

So, the pipeline is mplayer | sox | flac.

Oggenc can resample for ogg vorbis, but FLAC cannot - therein lies the problem.

Anyway, my AIFF plugin is working for decoding, but I need to extend it for encoding as well. I will play with that over the next few days, and then send you something.

 Why not use pipes?

 
 by jajaja on: Mar 11 2008
 
Score 50%

why not use pipes to encode on the fly? This way one could avoid gigabyte-sized wav's on their harddrive....

example with mplayer to convert to mp3 on the fly
the file to be converted from: input.file
the file to be converted to: output.file
Quote:
Create a named pipe called pipe.wav
#: mkfifo pipe.wav

Now execute the following command. It will hang, as it is waiting for the data to flow through the pipe.
#: lame --preset standard pipe.wav output.file
(add your favorite lame options (including ID3 tags))

In a different terminal, execute the following command, to get the data flowing.
#: mplayer -ao pcm:file=pipe.wav input.file

thanks, that's a nice approach. however soundkonverter 0.3 would need some rewrites. i'm trying to work on version 1.0 now and i'll write it with pipes in mind.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
