    Re: dBpoweramp R202x Release

    R2024-04-01 (Windows)

    FLAC encoder, limits to 655350Hz, returns an error message if source more than this

    Opus updated to 1.5.1

    Overwrite page:
    automatically tracks which files exist and shown in red, extension shown also.
    'No to All' renamed 'Skip existing' and the button will disable if no files are being overwritten (after renaming)
    Overwrite (x) shows how many are being overwritten
    also the headers autosize when size window, so extension always shows on edge
    detects also later encoded files which would overwrite files which are being written during conversion
    'Overwrite' button changes to 'Convert' if no files are being overwritten

    Right click folder >> Batch Convert, Batch Edit Tags set also by Placement option (Windows 11+)

    if a file 'NoRegCheck.bin' is placed in the same folder as dBpoweramp programs, it disables the update check and registration code entry.

    dMC DSP Volume Normalize: redesigned page, for EBU it allows editing of the reference target level, also added a new option 'Reduce if above' which is ideal for using with floating point and reducing to a desired final dB value

    ID Tag Editor - ALT + Right Arrow to move to next file, ALT + Left Arrow to previous file

    CD Ripper - if already had ripped CD and try again, but cancel at overwrite page, then would show the ripping results, even though did not rip
    CD Ripper - if internet access is disabled and no metadata then says so on Metadata info tip, also the Manual Search page is not shown
    CD Ripper - Speed up of metadata lookup when servers are down
    CD Ripper - Manual Metadata review, remembers the last position, even if dragged to other monitor, or resized for next showing, note resets to default position on CD ripper restart

    Control Centre - disabling access to the internet shows a warning message about CD Ripper having no metadata

    Wavpack DSD Encoding enabled

    Fixed WAV tag writing settings not being respected in specific scenarios.

    Improved ReplayGain peak scan accuracy, allowed >1.0 peaks for various lossy codecs.

    Made proper Opus gain fields written when writing ReplayGain tags.

    Overwrite prompt dialog updates: show collisions if multiple source files produce same output, show existing files in red, show how many files are about to be overwritten.

    Made possible to read .M4A files renamed to .AAC and vice versa.

    Third party codec libraries updated.

    CD Ripper: Prevented AccurateRip configuration from being opened with no drive selected.
    CD Ripper: Better feedback with unchecked "allow dBpoweramp to access the internet"
