HDCD Decoding/Ripping support

Postby Falcon » Sun Sep 04, 2011 8:35 pm

I got some HDCD discs in my collection, which I yet had to rip with dBpoweramp which supports HDCD decoding and automatically encoding it into 24bit FLACs. Is there any chance that we will get this feature included in MediaMonkey (Gold, if it depends on any license cost)!?

Same here - I would love to know that I can rip HDCD into 24-bit FLAC or other lossless format! That and SACD. Does MediaMonkey have any add-ins or plans to support audiophile formats (all kinds)?

I agree. I'd like to see full hi-def integration into MM like:
- ability to transcode 24bit on the fly to portable devices only supporting 16bit
- sample size (16bit - 24bit) in the song properties. I'd like sample size to be available in columns and as a filter for playlists.

At the moment, only bitrate and frequency indicate songs are 24bit. The strange thing about frequency, is that it is called Sample Rate in the column and filter.

Just wanted to add my support for this feature. It's probably about the only major omission, from my point of view.

For me personally, I'd prefer to have my (FLAC) files stored as they appear on the CD, then have MM apply the HDCD processing on-the-fly during playback. (But I suspect it would make sense to implement decode-during-rip and decode-during-playback in the same release.)

- HDCD support, i.e. options for both decode-during-rip and decode-during-playback.

I'd like to see HDCD decoding added, too.

Please add HDCD decoding support (both playback and ripping) to MediaMonkey's official wishlist.
If needed, because of licensing, it could be a paid addon.

edit: please note that this is very important to me, it is my only post (I think) in these 4 years as a member. Indeed, there is only other thing in my wishlist, but I have to search before I create a post about it.

Any sign of HDCD support yet? All I keep seeing in the new builds is "Added support for new iDevice". Surely, providing the best possible audio reproduction is MediaMonkey's core business. Support for closed-system Apple devices is a nice-to-have for a subset of all users. It should not take priority over MM's core functionality! :-?

HDCD would be nice. There is one good reason for that: some HDCDs use Peak Extension. If supported by the player, dynamic range is increased by 6dB and possible clipping reduced compared to a player that doesn't support it. There is indeed an audible difference if the mastering engineer used compression and (soft-)clipping for non-HDCD players.

But to be honest, there are only very few HDCDs and even fewer that really use Peak Extension (or even any other HDCD function, some are rather fake).

Another advocate of HDCD support here.
If Foobar can have the option (for free) why not MediaMonkey?

Does anyone know if it is absolutely out of the question or wether its under considertion. Microsoft no longer support HDCD so I cant believe there would be licensing fees involved, especially if the Foobar plug-in is free.
Can the Foobar plug-in be adapted for M Monkey?

Yet another advocate for inclusion of HDCD decoding. Will it ever come it is still available on plenty of CD's and we cannot use the full capability of this format.
