Introducing the new, better PAQCompress GUI

Introducing the new, better PAQCompress GUI

Hi everyone, I started this year being productive and have coded for the past couple of days, hence my absence of posts in this site. I’ve worked on updated a graphical user interface I wrote several years ago for the PAQ Compression software. At the time, I had limited skills writing code, and my GUIs were not that great. Hence, I took that software and rewrote it from scratch to provide a better user experience. I also updated the software…

cmix_gui v1.5 released!

Hi everyone, Yesterday, Veterans Day Holiday, I was working at improving the cmix GUI software. New versions of the cmix compression software were released and so, I added support for them. cmix GUI now supports cmix_v16c, v16d, and v16e! Other improvements includes fixing the log window as it seems cmix switched from using Standard Output (stdout) to Standard Error (stderr). This prevented the log from showing the output. Also, in the process, there were code improvements performed. Lastly, the software…

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

Hi everyone, Today, I have released v1.2 of FLAC GUI: This version adds Multi-Threaded encoding, meaning that each of your CPU threads will encode a file, significantly speeding up the encoding process. For example, if you have a folder with lots of music files and you have an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU which has 16 threads, you’ll be encoding 16 music files at a time! This assuming that the folder contains 16 or more files. If the folder contains…

FLAC GUI v1.1 released!

FLAC GUI v1.1 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I’ve released FLAC GUI v1.1: This new version includes 2 options that will further improve the compression of the FLAC files. These options are: Exhaustive model search (-e flag in the flac.exe command line) Exhaustively search LP coeff quantization (-p flag in the flac.exe command line) By enabling these options in the GUI, you’ll save a few kb per FLAC files but the encoding time will be a little slower. If you don’t mind waiting a few…
