Resample (Upsample) Wav Without Interpolation (Sox) – Internal digital volume control
Sound quality Studio vs ? – Audirvāna Studio – Audirvana – A new resampler DSP for foobar2000
Super Best Audio Friends. Read these “rules” AND introduce yourself before your first post. A healthy approach to understanding measurements Being true to what the artists intended. SoX does not. At least not Sox as it is implemented in Volumio, Audirvana and everywhere else I’ve tried upsampling. Your experience may vary. I’m starting this thread to document my attempts to get SoX to deliver better results. I’ll try to find a free FLAC which benefits greatly from upsampling, and upload upscaled variations with different settings for others to try.
Please make suggestions if you’re further along this path.. Like x 3 List. Last edited: Aug 7, Woland , Aug 7, SoX documentation isn’t up to date with the code. Like x 5 Epic x 1 List. Like x 1 List. After downloading a few hours of free music, the best candidate track I have so far is this one: Paisley Dark Edits Box 6 by Jezebell alternative suggestions are welcome though.
Woland , Aug 13, Thanks Woland for this interesting discussion. I just got turned on to upsampling. I’d tried it before a few years ago using SSRC and it seemed to make the sound worse so I thought no more of it. I don’t stream so it’s incredibly easy to offline upsample entire folders of music.
With Yggrasil A2 I can upsample to at most The difference it makes is really noticeable: Top end is a lot more precise, hi-hats and ride cymbals have clearly delineated attacks rather than a fuzzy halo Less “grain” and a more liquid, organic sound Less congestion in the mids Less body and density – some people might not like this I can’t comment on bass as my system doesn’t reproduce bass at the moment waiting on subs.
My SOX recipe is: Code:. Garns , Aug 26, If you do ever want to play with dither.. That targets the dither to the bit depth of the DAC chips rather than the 24 bit interface. Woland , Aug 26, OK, I couldn’t resist modding sox to allow for longer filters. Like x 2 Epic x 1 List. Garns , Aug 27, I’m not sure where exactly this should go – maybe we need a HQPlayer thread.
Anyway, I’ve been looking at how one can use JRiver as a front-end for HQPlayer and there are some folks using batch files and such janky solutions. All of a sudden it occurred to me I might be able to use a virtual audio cable to pipe out of JRiver and into HQPlayer, and sure enough it works. I just got it working, so the jury’s out on whether there are any sonic nasties, but I won’t be able to do much critical listening until tonight. In theory, though, it should be fine.
Note, this should work for most any player, it’s not particular to JRiver. GoodEnoughGear , Aug 30, Had a go at adding dither to my sox upsampling recipe: Code:. Like x 1 Epic x 1 List. Garns , Oct 18, It’s awesome seeing original content, Garns. Woland , Oct 19, If you really want to get great results out of SoX, either use the sinc filter or better write your own custom filter and use the coefficients with fir filter. The SoX fir filter supports up to a maximum of K taps.
I would be happy to provide a custom coefficients file. Be advised though if the DAC is delta sigma type, 4x up-sampling to Woland , Nov 2, Dislike x 1 List.
So prompted by this I finally figured how to successfully edit the SoX source to increase the maximum filter length. In fft4g. Epic x 2 Like x 1 List.

If you are running Red Hat Linux check out the Planet. There is also SoX which uses libsoxr the SoX resampler library to change sampling rates by this method. Description: online technical paper. Sox Sampling rate conversion speed. The resampler is currently available either as part of libsox’ the audio fileformat and effect. The signal source is originally at 8 kHz sampling rate and written to a 16bit single channel. Sox is used to perform sample rate. If you now have several conversion rules activated at the same time on LMS e.
If the input and output files have different rates then a sample rate change but for CDquality sound you should instead use either resample or polyphase. Abstract: This document describes digital audio samplingrate conversion and related concepts. Opensource software is provided and pointers are given to. Since SoX has multiple rate changing effects the user can specify which to See also resample polyphase and rabbit for other samplerate changing effects.
Values are normalized so that the maximum and minimum are 1 and 1. This file format can be used to create data files for external programs such as FFT. SoX has a high quality resampling algorithm that is also highly configurable. A comparison of resampling with several different settings albeit. It can convert audio files to other popular audio file types and also apply sound effects. I am sorry but my post above was withdrawn by me because I was answering the wrong person No pun intended.
Someone is trying to be a moderator without being a moderator, but is giving the real moderators a headache in the meantime, because now the real moderators have to read all the flagged posts to see if moderation is warranted. Bonkers indeed. ASIO drivers are developed by the audio card manufacturers and interface directly with the applications to get the best performance high data throughput, synchronization, low latency and is not bound to any fixed number of input and output channels.
In order to use an ASIO driver, applications must be able to support this interface, which is the case with Audirvana. You can be right. There is a long history behind ASIO it was basically developed to reduce latency for musicians and sound engineers to access the hardware directly. In those times in the ancient Windows versions WASAPI and Kernel streaming did not exist yet, so Steinberg provided a way to bypass the Windows sound system and get to the hardware directly.
Sound quality Studio vs 3. Is there any way to make r8brain work together with Audirvana 3. Ok, thanks, I will certainly give it a try. This interface gives the programmer also direct access to the sound hardware just as WASAPI does, but with some minor differences nothing to do with sound. Members Current visitors. Log in Register.
