seems to work fine on my iphone 5...  there are those little ad banners which are always annoying, but being quite green that's about all i can tell you.

 

can't complain for a free app since there's not much competition bigsmile_face.gif

Just picked up the FLAC player last night for my ipod touch.  I can say that I am supremely happy!

 

The description on the apple store and on the developer's website states that it supports replay gain.

 

I ripped my FLAC files with dBPoweramp and have replaygain values embedded, but not applied.

Can anyone tell me how enable the replaygain feature in the FLAC Player?

 

Many thanks.

On the Now Playing screen there is a volume slider at bottom left.

To the left of the slider is a mixer symbol. Tap that and a pop up appears. The pop up has a set of equalizer sliders and an extra one labelled Gain which can be adjusted between 0 and 2. Is that what you are looking for?

I don't think that's what I'm looking for.

ReplayGain is an analysis of the tracks and the album in relation to a specific dB level.  When ripped with dB Poweramp, or analyzed with Foobar, you can write these ReplayGain values into the metadata of the file for use at a later date.  They are saved in the metadata, but not applied to the file itself so it is completely benign and does not affect the file adversely.

 

What I was hoping to find would be a setting that states, Use ReplayGain Album setting, or Use ReplayGain Track setting.  It would then read the values that are saved in metadata and adjust the volume to a lower level and then all the tracks would sound relatively close to the same level.

 

It would be nice to try this, but not a deal breaker.  It does say on the website and on the Apple Store that it has "ReplayGain Support."

 

Thought I would ask the community before I ask the developer.....

 

>>>>5 min later.  After playing around with it some more.>>>

So I think I just found it.

From the ipod touch home screen, click on <Settings>.  Choose <FLAC Player>.    Brings up a menu for <Acknowledgements> and <Settings>.  Click on settings.    The following choices are available.

 

**Exclude from Backup (Excludes FLAC Collections from iTunes and iCloud Backups)

**Load ReplayGain  (Automatically load ReplayGain values if present.  Album gain values are used during album playback, otherwise track gain is used.  Requires EQ/Gain turned on)

**Show Hidden Files  (Show hidden files (dotfiles) when browsing network folders.)

**Reset Database  (Erase all playlists and bookmarks.  Only rest the database if FLAC Player fails to open>0

 

These settings will take effect the next time you open FLAC Player

I have used it constantly the last few weeks, it works fine. I can't tall you anything about the sound quality but I can tell you it is a pain to use. Not in the sense that the GUI is bad, but I run out of room on my 8GB iTouch 4th gen too fast. The GUI is beautiful and simple, but if you go back to the menu to chose a song, the music stops. Ads are annoying, but turning off the wifi gets rid of those. 

 

Hope that helps, such an old thread.

I am planning to purchase a wireless hard drive to stream .flac to my ipad when mobile. Most probably it will be wireless plus / 8player combo. I am also thinking to purchase a much larger (4TB) desktop drive to have all my media (music + films) at home in order to stream from there.

 

Most of my audio files are .ape/.cue and some (few) cd's have split .flac songs.  I was wondering:

 

1) If it is possible to stream .ape/.cue to my Ipad or if the files need to be split to individual .flac songs for the player to recognise.

 

2) In general how do you prefer to store your music? In  one .ape/.cue file or separate .flac songs? Are there any advantages/disadvantages with one or the other methods? I use Audirvana which reads all of the above.

 

3) Regarding home streaming, and since we are not talking about itunes airplay (flac + various video formats), is it possible to have a *non* - wireless  drive to connect it to macbook and stream from there with an application similar to 8player? Or should i look for wireless drives for home use also?

 

 

 

Many thanks for your suggestions !   :) 

 

p.s. i did not want to start a new thread as it is related.

FLACPLAYER

My "portable" is a 64Gb iPod touch 4 iOS 6.1.6  ($130 on Craigslist) running FLAC Player, and the sweet Centrance M8 ($700).  Plays up to 24/196.  Very happy with this set-up.

 

I was very pleased to see that the iStore offers a backwards compatible version of FLAC player for iOS 6.1.6.

 

 

CABLE

8-wire, flat, silver plated cable from China ($135) for my LCD2F. 

 

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/8-cores-Silver-plated-Flat-braid-Headphone-Upgrade-Cable-for-Audeze-LCD-2-LCD-3-/121387534352?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item1c4342c810

 

8mm paracord climbing rope from Mountain Equipment Co-op ($9)

 

Remove the core from the rope, but leave one string in the sleeve as a leader.  Melt the ends of the sleeve to prevent fraying.  Note the 4-pin to 3-pin connections with a multi-meter, then de-solder the 4-pin plug.  Slip on a piece of heat-shrink, pull the flat cable through the sleeve with the leader string, and re-assemble the 4-pin plug.  Stick the heat-shrink at a comfortable point in the Y junction.

 

The silver cable is a little brighter than stock Audeze.  The sleeving prevents tangling, reduces handling noise, and feels nice.

I am running FLACplayer on my iPOD Touch iOS 6.1.6.   I name all my album art .jpegs the same as the album name before importing the music files to the app documents via iTunes. 

 

However, some album art shows, and some does not.

 

Any known solution?

 

Thanks
