Re: Can't open Decibel

If you purchased Decibel through the Mac App Store the direct download version of Decibel should recognize your app store receipt. However, Apple recently switched their Mac App Store signing certificate. This change precipitated these problems because of a previously undiscovered bug in Decibel's r...

Re: Decibel on an older Mac running OS 10.5.8

The minimum version of Mac OS X required for Decibel 1.0 is 10.6. I don't remember offhand which version made the jump to 10.7. All previous versions are available from http://files.sbooth.org/archive/ if you'd like to try them.

Re: Play or Decibel...the next stage

Unfortunately getting Decibel to work on PPC machines isn't really practical. Decibel makes use of many APIs that are not available in Mac OS X versions prior to 10.7 and I would essentially be maintaining two versions of the app. As to the difference between a watch folder and the library, a watch ...

Re: converted files now named "01 Unknown Track" "02 Unknown...

Max's preference file is in ~/Library/Preferences/org.sbooth.Max.plist . The situation you describe is very odd- do the files end up with the proper tags and incorrect names, or are they missing tags as well?

Re: AIFC conversions & Metadata / Tags Preservation

You didn't miss anything. Max currently only writes tags to plain AIFF files, not AIF-C.

Re: Integer Mode

The latest versions of Decibel (1.3 and up) no longer use integer mode. This was a decision I made because of changes in Mac OS X as well as my desire to avoid custom drivers.

Re: fix or workaround needed track order wrong using network hrd

Fundamentally there is nothing different about dragging files from different folders. It's possible that the underlying file system presents the files in different orders; Decibel does not sort the tracks as they are added unless there is a sort descriptor set by clicking the table column headers. I...

Re: Save equaliser settings, Not relogin lastfm after restart

Decibel should save the equalizer settings between launches. I take it this isn't working for you in 1.3.2? If you'd like to save the settings as a preset for restoration later, this is something I've added to the feature request list. Similarly Decibel caches your last.fm login and it shouldn't nee...

Re: Re-naming files in Decibel

Decibel doesn't support metadata editing or renaming files. You can use Tag to edit metadata in AIFF files until this is supported in Decibel.

Re: High-res files convert to only 16-bit

I reviewed the source code (it's been a few years since I've looked) and for conversions to Apple Lossless from FLAC my impression is that the source bit depth should be preserved. I also did an experimental transcode of a 48.0/24 FLAC to Apple MPEG-4 Audio (Apple Lossless) and it worked as expected...

Re: Mp3s not playing on Mavericks (10.9.5)

Is there any output in Console indicating what went wrong? I can't think of a reason why Play wouldn't work on Mavericks but I haven't tested it.
