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.

You can download this release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1 released!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve released my new tool, Audio MD5 Checker:

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1
Audio MD5 Checker v0.1

This is an essential tool to have to compare audio hashes when you are recompressing FLAC files, converting WAVs to FLACs, or recompressing MP3 files.

The tool makes use of ffmpeg to determine the audio hash and checks if the other file audio matches, making sure that the recompression or conversion went correctly.

The tool is open source and the code can be seen here.

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

You’ll need to have ffmpeg in your system. If you don’t have it, please refer to this guide.

Enjoy!

Opus GUI v1.0 released!

Opus GUI v1.0 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.0, which is a tool to encode FLAC or WAV files to the Free and Open Source Opus file format:

It is very easy to use, just follow these steps:

  1. Browse for a folder that contains FLAC or WAV files.
  2. Browse for a folder to store the encoded files.
  3. Write a bitrate number. I personally use 64 to encode files to 64kbit using Variable Bit Rate.
  4. Press the “Start” button.

That’s all! Your files will be encoded in no time!

You can then use an Opus-compatible music player like foobar2000 or use a hardware DAP like the Hiby R3 which works really good with Opus files.

Download

To download Opus GUI, head to the following link:

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

FLAC GUI v1.2 Released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released v1.2 of FLAC GUI:

FLAC GUI v1.2 Screenshot

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 less than 16 files, the software will use a number of threads that match the file count. If the folder contains more than 16 files, it will encode 16 files at a time until it finishes.

As of the GUI, being now a Multi-Threaded software means that the GUI will not get locked as it did in previous versions. The stability is way better now.

Download this new version at the GitHub project release page.

Enjoy!

FLAC GUI v1.1 released!

FLAC GUI v1.1 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve released FLAC GUI v1.1:

FLAC GUI v1.1 Screenshot

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 extra seconds or minutes while wanting to save a few more KB, then these options will greatly help.

You can download the software and view the source code at the flac_gui GitHub repository by clicking here.

Hope you enjoy it!

NOTE: The FLAC executable was compiled for the x64 bit architecture. If you want to use it in a 32-bit OS, you’ll need to find a compatible FLAC version.
