Interesting re the difference in Sound. I haven't noticed that. Many of the other players I can hear some distinctions between them, but Fidelia sounds identical to me using a Benchmark HDR. Granted, I don't have any of its bells or whistles turned on. It'd be interesting to hear what your settings are for that. I'd also be interested if you could hear a difference between the first version I posted (link in 1st post) and the second, as I swapped the audio playback engine between those.
I do have Fidelia Advanced, but in all honesty haven't gotten around to using exclusive / hog mode. Likewise, I found this thread after you posted the most recent build, so only have that to go on. In terms of differences (perceived or otherwise) vis-a-vis Fidelia, I do not find them to be pronounced but they are sufficiently 'there' for me to identify them without navel-gazing. Let me repeat, too, that I do not find the characteristics I noted to be at all a turn-off.
These were in my mental to-do list already. I'm having a hard time reconciling keeping it small and out of the way w/ making this part usable. I think I'm just going to have to break the music selection stuff out into its own window.
The separate window idea is sound, and the interface in your second post above looks to be getting there. As you know, Fidelia uses a separate window, but even that isn't particularly feature risk when I compare it to Foobar.
Ok, I'll make sure the sample rates and other pertinent info makes it in there. As for what happens when it sees those files, it resamples everything to the sample rate of the output. So, on my Benchmark for instance, its set to 96k/24bit, so a 44k/16bit track will get resampled to match. It wouldn't be too hard to add an option to match the file. I think that's what you're asking for, right?
Yes - matching output to file (rather than resamplng or upsampling). I'm pretty sure my dac does no resampling, so I just want to be sure that if a track is 44k/16b that's what it gets, and if it's 96k/24b that's what it gets, etc.
You're the second person to mention this. The up/down drag motion adjusts the volume up/down. My intent was to make it work like a dial, where you would drag it in a circle, though I haven't gotten around to writing the gesture handling for that yet. Its supposed to control the master volume. I just went and checked based on your feedback, and I must've forgotten to hook it back up after changing audio engines . I usually keep it at max and control it via the knob on my dac. I'll get this fixed asap.
I wondered if that was the intent - it is a very small dial, though, so I was struggling to attempt different gestures with the trackpad...
Hey, thanks a ton for all the feedback and the kind words! I'm glad its moving in the right direction, even if there's still alot to do.
No sweat - keep at it. I'll keep an eye on your progress, and am happy to offer comment.
