post #43561 of 156168

How is the replay gain thing Foobar has in it? I was wondering why it was louder than winamp(besides my EQ) and then saw that it has some feature that try's to make things equally loud. I don't like things messing with the sound that don't have to so I turned it off but now I'm curious about it.

Would you refrain from reading a mathematics text on the train just because your are afraid of people staring at you? I know I wouldn't.
I had a friend like that in high school. He often was reading some 1000+ pages math books (the one I took a look at was actually well-written and if I had actually read it entirely instead of some random pages, maybe I'd even understand some of it ;-)) on school breaks. He was one of the youngest (if not THE youngest) member of Polish Mensa and even gave a lecture about 4-dimensional geometry on some elite Young Mathematicians' Congress.
Also an awesome guy in person. :-) Wonder what he's doing now, haven't seen him since I graduated from high school...

You can disable replay gain easily by going to Preferences -> Playback and then Replaygain -> Processing -> None.

I personally like replaygain. It ensures that you don't have to adjust volume between albums. And when you're listening on a song basis you can still enable album replaygain or song replaygain to get roughly the same volume across all music, without sacrifice of dynamic range.
Additionally you can add a preamp to it as well. This can ensure that dynamic range is preserved, as well as pushing the volume as close to maximum.

Pfft. 4-dimensional geometry.
It sounds really cool, but it's actually nothing more than a bit of trig and algebra, with the only added difficulty that you can't imagine what's going on any more. All you can do is model it mathematically.


In truth, math is not that difficult if you've got a talent for it, and the willingness to study. If you're recently talented (which I am) and willing to study it in your free time (which I am not) then you have all it takes to become a so called prodigy.

Got the blue WASDKeyboards keycap o-rings. Kind of weird feeling now, but the bottoming out noise is severely cut down, although the reduction in bottoming out depth is a bit awkward since in fast-paced, frantic typing I sometimes get into, I'm more used to the deeper depth. Still too early to say anything about it, although I now welcome the noise reduction. Sure the 'click' of the Blue MX cherry is still there, but my problem is more with bottoming out during serious typing and gaming.

An awkward story to go with that, when I see that I got the pickup slip for them (the dorms here don't have mailboxes for each room, which is logical since there's 16 rooms per floor, and there's 15 floors) I thought that it was kalbee's gift of the new headband for my T50RP. Was kind of disappointed that it wasn't, although I am still happy that I got it.

Looking at your Last.fm library I don't really see anything remotely similar. But you don't seem that active on there, so it's hard to judge from there.
She's got her own unique style in any case, and many people either love or hate it.

"the alleged prodigal son" would be a sweet custom title. Not that it would be put there by currawong though.

Oh I'm not really worried about that, I guessed it would work well enough, I'm wondering if it has a detrimental effect on sound quality.

Also belatedly I finally realised why did I feel like I know "nipponsei" when someone suggested to me to check them out for recent Full OP/ED. I feel so damned stupid when the realisation hit me just now lololol

MLA is created by the devil himself and will inflict over 9k damage without fail!
Lol. Which one you play? Did you play ML

As for the games, Birthday, Boys, Sales, Indie bundles.... with the occassional, fine ill actually bother to spend $8 on X game.  My BF3 tag is NXNeko, I got it played for a little then never touched it again... was all ronery. Be my SR3 buddy, yesh.... ill be gone 13th for a month su nows the time.
... 535 games -_- omg... .

I havent played that game in a while. I only regot it in humble bundle.

Why you going away?

Its basically a volume normalizer

That would indeed be pretty cool.

According to my knowledge of signal processing, psychoacoustics and digital logic, it can not possible affect the sound quality in any audible way.
At worst it will create a noise of amplitude 1 LSB, that is -96dB full scale. This is not audible. And in reality the noise will be even lower. You'd need to lower the volume this way a couple thousand times to even hope to get an audible result.

Yeah, last.fm just recently started working with my iPod since iTunes 11 was released...
I'll take a look.

YAY... ended up pulling a allnighter on MLA because I can't stop playing....

Final arc!!!

I'm playing MLA right now, will play ML after this.

Decided to start with MLA because it seems more exciting....

(in case you didn't know: MLA is the sequel to ML)
