Re: unwanted pauses in middle of tracks

I experience this same problem when I stream my audio files from a NAS attached to my home wi-fi network. I recently purchased a Drobo-FS NAS, an Apple Airport Extreme router, and an iMac (running Snow Leopard). (All of these are the most recent hardware versions.) The iMac accesses the audio files ...

Re: Decibel can't play WavPack files

I had doubled the buffer sizes some time ago, and that's how I've been using Decibel. I changed the buffer sizes back to their default values, and that solved the problem with WavePak. The files now play properly. The reason that I doubled the buffer sizes was because of a problem I experienced with...

Re: Decibel can't play WavPack files

Here is a link to a WavPack file that I created with xACT. http://www.mediafire.com/?79i5s5hdx5z7xk7 This file, like all other WavPack files that I have tried to play with Decibel, plays with the sound chopped up. I am able to play all WavPack files using Cog without any problem. Decibel plays all m...

Re: Decibel can't play WavPack files

I assumed that the forum didn't want people posting attachments containing WavPack files, so I didn't want to try to circumvent this restriction.
Besides, there is nothing special about the WavPack files that I create with xACT - anyone with a Mac can do it.

Re: Decibel can't play WavPack files

I would be happy to send you a file for testing, but when I tried uploading a file on this forum, it said "The extension WV is not allowed." Also, the file size is limited to 7 MB, so I had to create a very short file (which I did, using xACT 2.13), but then I got tripped up by the "WV extension is ...

Decibel can't play WavPack files

When I try to play WavPack files of standard music CD rips, Decibel plays them with what sounds like about 5 total dropouts per second - in other words, with a constant staccato articulation. Cog is able to play these WavPack files without any problems. If I convert the WavPack files to flac or ape,...
