View Full Version : dBPowerAMP Player still being worked on?

09-22-2004, 05:04 PM
I have been using dBPowerAmp media player for so long now really for 4 main reasons:

2. The MINI-AMP! Thst thing is amazing...a lot of skins have it, if not you can add it yourself...its so cool! I keep it in the corner of my screen all the time!
3. The 'My Music Collection' feature is great! I love the selective option too because it lets you choose which bands you want it to play and not play..
4. Customizablitiy (is that a word?). It's so customizably, almost everything can be changed on it! And the skin creator makes it REALLY EASY!

But now I've been using beta 4 of RC3 for a very long time now, the last release was back in March...is there every going to be a newer version? I love this program, I'd hate to see it die like that...

I'm sure it's still being worked on, but right now Spoon seems to be concentrating on getting the dMC 11 done. One thing at a time.
(If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me Spoon or moderator people)

i think that sounds about right to me. hopefully Spoon can get some time before the end of the year or early next year so we can finally see live streaming and dirX plugin capabilty.

Should get around to a big update for dAP in about 2 months.

just getting a leg in here incase you forgot.

the EQ boost needs to work as intended http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=2327

and a 20 band EQ instead of the 18 http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=2222&highlight=equalizer

then i can start making all my pre EQ pre sets. i have been waiting a long time for this one :)

09-26-2004, 04:37 PM
Trouble is the eq behind the scenes is 18 band, the new default skin will have a 20 band eq which is mapped into 18 band.

09-26-2004, 06:09 PM
i'm not sure i understand? you can do a true 20band? or no?

if you map a 20band slider to an actual 18band freq range then you are just assigning two sliders to one freq?

can't you just divide the freq range from 55hz to 19Khz equally by 20?

or better still 22hz to 22.050Khz divided by 30 equal Q parts:)

oh and keyboard shortcuts please, please , please....

at least more underlined letters in the mmc (like the edit tag)...

09-28-2004, 03:47 PM
ATM the mapping of the EQ is not great (ie just dropped), if I can remember a frequency graph will be created and the exact 18 points taken from that.

09-28-2004, 04:54 PM
how about this?

lbc[0] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[0]); // 20 Hz
lbc[1] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[1]); // 25 Hz
lbc[2] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[2]); // 31 Hz
lbc[3] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[3]); // 40 Hz
lbc[4] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[4]); // 50 Hz
lbc[5] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[5]); // 63 Hz
lbc[6] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[6]); // 80 Hz
lbc[7] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[7]); // 100 Hz
lbc[8] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[8]); // 125 Hz
lbc[9] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[9]); // 160 Hz
lbc[10] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[10]); // 200 Hz
lbc[11] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[11]); // 250 Hz
lbc[12] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[12]); // 315 Hz
lbc[13] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[13]); // 400 Hz
lbc[14] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[14]); // 500 Hz
lbc[15] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[15]); // 630 Hz
lbc[16] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[16]); // 800 Hz
lbc[17] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[17]); // 1.00 kHz
lbc[18] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[18]); // 1.25 KHz
lbc[19] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[19]); // 1.60 KHz
lbc[20] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[20]); // 2.00 kHz
lbc[21] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[21]); // 2.50 kHz
lbc[22] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[22]); // 3.150 kHz
lbc[23] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[23]); // 4.00 kHz
lbc[24] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[24]); // 5.00 kHz
lbc[25] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[25]); // 6.30 kHz
lbc[26] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[26]); // 8.00 kHz
lbc[27] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[27]); // 10.00 kHz
lbc[28] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[28]); // 12.50 kHz
lbc[29] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[29]); // 16.00 kHz
lbc[30] = lpreamp * GetEqdBValue(StoredGraphicEQ.Position[30]); // 20.00 kHz

just working off Graphic Equalizer Studio v2.5 : http://www.audio-software.com/index.html

the default value there is 1/3 octave and Q factor of "6". but their Q factor is adjustable. any chance of an adjustable Q in dap? perhaps no point as when you bring in dirX compatability this pas EQ will plug straight in :)

the only thing thats keeping me from using dbpoweramp player is no repeat one function. The only thing. Plz make a beta with it included.

10-09-2004, 12:45 AM
I would like to second that request too.... please could you add a repeat function???

10-09-2004, 04:22 AM
repeat one (and repeat) are available thru QueMaster (it has to be turned on all the time you want to repeat) ... download and take a look at the help files if you have problems, and eventually you can ask me if you still have problems....
I have to say that the feature is a bit buggy but it should work, especially for repeat one...

10-09-2004, 01:15 PM
I think you might need to work on the shuffle a bit more... I have about 700 songs in MMC, and it seems to never play some of them...

10-09-2004, 03:04 PM
as one in dAP it is called "random play of MMC"...

as second it depends on how the songs are rated, when they are added to the collection and a number of other stuff ment to play you only the stuff you like the most... it doesn't work perfectly always, but for me and a couple of my friends it is almost perfect...

10-26-2004, 06:55 PM
I would like to add one more suggest:

Is it possible for a visualization in DAP? Perhaps compatable with Windows Media Player and WinAMP visualization...

10-27-2004, 06:55 AM
I'm a newbie here...
I've tested DAP (april beta) and couldn't play any radio streams (pls ed).
Can anyone confirm this ?
I've downloaded and installed most popular codecs.

Yes I can.
No it doesn't.

i am really keen on seeing dap get an EQ overhall , any chance of this getting done? http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showpost.php?p=25631&postcount=11

it would be great to use the EQ and make up pre sets. but as it is now and always has been , the EQ can't seriously be used becuase when it gets fixed any pre sets that i make now would be useless. as it is a great feature to have and use the add EQ on the fly to a song or album but no point in using it if th eEQ setting are going to change one day.

03-18-2005, 03:09 PM
The eq is not going to be changed (that is the values it works on), I am though going to release a new default skin with those values on it (so 18 eqs bars off the top of my head).

I have been working on said skin for about 9 months - just cannot get enough free time to complete it (5 mins here and there)...

03-18-2005, 04:07 PM
ok well that's a little dissapointing. yes i think it was only 18 band and not 20. well at least all the skins can be corrected then to reflect the true values. i will have to wait for directX feature then to use external EQ software.

03-19-2005, 03:55 PM
Of all the Eqs you cannot get a better one (ok it is very very good, might not be the best), it needs the data in 18 bands, I could generate a virtual averaged table and hide it inside but for the best method and most accurate I think 18 bands is the best, just needs new skins.
