Opus GUI v1.16 released

Opus GUI v1.16 released

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.16:

Opus GUI v1.16

This release adds a new text file called audioformats.txt. In this file, you can specify the file extensions that the GUI will process:

You can add new extensions as long as ffmpeg supports it, and they will be processed only if ffmpeg is present. Otherwise, only WAV files will be processed.

This version also has some bug fixes and improvements and updates the Google APIs to their latest version.

You can download this release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.5 released!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.5 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released Audio MD5 Checker v0.5:

Audio MD5 Checker v0.5

This release adds a FrameMD5 check in addition to the usual MD5 check performed to the audio stream. This makes it possible to see where the mismatches are in a file.

Here’s how to use the new MD5 feature of it:

  • All files will be checked with both MD5 and FrameMD5.
  • When the file checking finishes, double click on either the source or comparison file. The whole FrameMD5 information will be shown.
  • To show only where the MD5 mismatches occur, double click on the number shown in the “Frame Mismatch” list.

MP3Packer GUI v1.0 released

MP3Packer GUI v1.0 released

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released MP3Packer GUI v1.0:

MP3Packer GUI v1.0
MP3Packer GUI v1.0

This new tool allows you to recompress your MP3 files to save additional space. It can process MP3 files encoded with VBR and CBR bitrates. In both cases, you can save a couble of bytes or kilobytes, depending on the file.

MP3Packer maintains the original file tags, meaning there is no metadata loss.

MP3Packer tries to recompress the file losslessly, meaning the audio should not be changed. However, it is recommended to test the audio streams with Audio MD5 Checker to make sure they are identical.

You can download this new tool on GitHub by clicking here.

You can also see the software source code here.

The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is on sale!

The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is on sale!

Hi everyone,

Today is Black Friday, and it seems Amazon is having a sale for the iFi IEMatch 2.5mm Audio Attenuator.

This device usually retails for about $59, but today, you can get it for just $49. That’s the same price of the 3.5mm version!

If you’re an owner of sensitive IEMs, you may have experienced the problem where you hear some background noise, or the volume control stepping is really bad. It is either too low, or too high, with no middle point. This little adapter will reduce the hiss and noise from the audio source in which it’s being used, as well as helping you at having better volume control.

The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is basically the same as its 3.5mm version, except that it is designed for use with 2.5mm sources. It has the same 2 operational modes: High, and Ultra. High reduces the audio volume by 12db, while the Ultra setting reduces the audio volume by 24db.

I’m an owner of the iFi IEMatch 3.5mm version, and use it with my Hidizs MS4 in the Ultra setting. It works wonderfully when used with some USB DACs that are way too loud when used with this sensitive IEM.

Since I now own a 2.5mm DAC, and another one is in the way, I’ve decided to take advantage of this sale to use it with my 2.5mm DACs and have better volume control.

I’ll write another post detailing the improvements of using this with my DACs. In the meantime, you can take advantage of this sale by clicking on the link below:

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Hi everyone,

Last week, I released Opus GUI v1.14:

Opus GUI v1.14
Opus GUI v1.14

This release adds a new “CPU Threads” option to limit the number of threads used for the encoding. This was added because sometimes when encoding multiple files, ffmpeg may get stuck due to having 100% of CPU utilization. Limiting the CPU threads will prevent this issue from happening.

You can download this new release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!
