    Silence Removal not always the same?

    Is it just me, or the Audio CD - Hidden Track Silence Removal DSP isn't always acting the same?

    When I rip a CD with an hidden track, it seems to work:
    Audio CD - Hidden Track Silence Removal: Deleting Silence From: 00:03:26,611 to 00:03:34,931

    But then, sometimes if I scan the same CD again:
    Audio CD - Hidden Track Silence Removal: Deleting Silence From: 00:03:26,611 to 00:03:27,998

    Or sometimes, it doesn't remove anything...

    By the way, I use the default settings: -dbsilence="-45" -window="4000"

    It's strange, isn't it?
    Am I the only one with these strange things happening?

    Well, after more testing, it appears that when there are different times in the log (such as 00:03:26,611 to 00:03:34,931 and 00:03:26,611 to 00:03:27,998), the actual converted files are exactly the same duration (same number of samples). So it's good news. (But it's kinda weird.)

    But then, sometimes, it doesn't detect anything, and the next time (I mean the next rip of the same CD) it detects silence...?!

    Is the CRC the same for each rip (as shown in CD Ripper)?

    Positive!

    And all tracks were tagged as Accurate.

    Each time.

    Is the first or last track on the disc?

    Once it was the last track of a CD (with an hidden track after a short silence of about 10 seconds).

    Another time, it was a CD with a lot of silence at the end of each track (about 5 or 6 seconds). Sometimes, the DSP was trying to remove them, sometimes not (when ripping again)... I was perplex.
