Discuss Decibel, a high quality audio player.

I've noticed that while playing back CDs with Decibel, there is a pause and a small clicking noise when the player skips to the next track. This is not normally a problem, but for some CDs of classical/contemporary music there are a lot very small tracks for one piece, sometimes 20 or 30 seconds in length. With these discs the pause and click is a serious problem. Itunes does not pause excessively between tracks, though often a small click is audible. VLC does not make a click noise when the track changes, but there is a significant pause between tracks. Therefore I'm stuck using iTunes for such CDs.
Since CD media is quite slow, the default buffer sizes are probably too small. If you make them larger as described in http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=4743 does it help?
thanks, everything seems to be working fine after doubling the buffer sizes. Occasionally I'll get a tiny artifact (barely noticeable) when the track changes, but now there is no pause between consecutive tracks so the rhythm is not messed up. Playing CDs in Decibel is now a much smoother experience for me than in iTunes or VLC.
