00:12:49scott666closest it gets is .mod

00:19:50midknight2k3why not midi to mp3
00:20:02Zagormidknight2k3: midi is not a sound format
00:20:22midknight2k3isn't it an odd sound format?

00:21:58Zagorbookmark patch going in Real Soon Now®
00:22:11midknight2k3i can't wait
00:22:16midknight2k3say.. does it also save the settings?
00:22:20midknight2k3like resume and shuffle?
00:22:30Zagorit has to

00:22:32midknight2k3i had a suggestion for that
00:22:44midknight2k3i cant remember it anymore..
00:22:53midknight2k3naming bookmarks
00:22:59midknight2k3when you hit save you get the keyboard
00:23:06midknight2k3just OK to save as the normal name or naming it?
00:23:09midknight2k3i like thazt
00:23:43Zagorwhy would you want to give a name to your bookmark? you already see the track name and position
00:24:07midknight2k3what if its a long file?
00:24:11midknight2k3name the subsongs
00:24:19midknight2k3sort of... i think its a good idea anyway
00:24:25Zagori don't :)
00:24:26midknight2k3or like for audiobooks
00:24:37midknight2k3think about it!
00:24:41midknight2k3maybe a long recording
00:24:55midknight2k3like a concert
00:24:59midknight2k3label each song?
00:25:12Zagorthey are bookmarks, not labels
00:25:23midknight2k3but labeling a bookmart
00:25:29midknight2k3thats what you call smart
00:25:32midknight2k3double in one
00:26:09Zagorno, that's what you call cumbersome, having to go through the damn keyboard every time
00:26:18midknight2k3just have an option?
00:26:22midknight2k3well never mind
00:26:24midknight2k3it was just an idea
00:26:28midknight2k3i thought it sounded nice
00:26:53Zagoryou're doing the "maybe this is possible" thing again, without actually considering if you'd want to use it yourself
00:27:15midknight2k3well i ..
00:27:20midknight2k3i don't..
00:31:39midknight2k3forget it
00:31:45midknight2k3you're against me all the time i think
00:31:59scott666why not just split the file?
00:32:07midknight2k3and HOW?
00:32:21scott666on a computer?
00:32:40midknight2k3and i'm sure everybody has a track splitter
00:32:44midknight2k3and knows HOW to
00:32:52midknight2k3and feels like plugging it in every recording
00:33:16scott666they can press play when they need a new track
00:33:37midknight2k3corrupted my files when i did that
00:33:41midknight2k3er my recording
00:35:10scott666not mine

09:29:31midhaarrockerMoin Linus! Your hint was gold. With some experimental code that lowered the prerecording quantization I was able to reduce the arbitrary latency of my trigger down to <100ms.
09:29:55 Quit AciD (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
09:30:05Timbelsyou kept on working on that recoring patch midhaarrocker?
09:30:08midhaarrockerBut I failed to go frame accurate yet.
09:30:09Timbelsi thought u stopped
09:30:46midhaarrockerI didn't see what I could do. Now I do.
09:30:55LinusNmidhaarrocker: not frame accurate? why?
09:31:38midhaarrockerWell, it _is_ on frame boundaries, as I use the same code.
09:32:54LinusNok. "frame accurate" means "exact timing" for you?
09:34:08midhaarrockerI don't search for the offset from the prerecord_index to find the nearest frame boundary before the trigger occurred yet.
09:34:50midhaarrockerI tried to, but it's a bit difficult to debug that without serial mod....
09:35:02LinusNyes it is
09:40:32midhaarrockerMy idea was: prerecord_timeout - current_tick gives me the offset from the prerecord_index. Now instead of searching for the first frame only I could loop over the frames until the sum of the frame times (obtained mp3headerinfo) exceed that offset. Used as a post-incrementing loop this should result in the frame boundary just before the trigger event.
09:40:59midhaarrockerWould you allow such a loop in the mpeg thread?
09:43:40LinusNbut what if the frame count reveals that you need a few more frames than that?
09:43:47LinusNwould you search backwards?
09:44:00midhaarrockerno, it would be searching forwards
09:44:32midhaarrocker(using mem_find_next_frame
09:45:55LinusNstill, the sum could exceed the offset a few frames before the actual trigger point
09:46:59midhaarrocker? How that? the offset point is just a time.
09:47:39LinusNmaybe i just don't understand what you mean
09:48:06LinusNwhat is prerecord_timeout?
09:48:09midhaarrockerprerecord_timeout is the timeout, when the next prerecord index should be written.
09:48:34LinusN(doesn't have the code in front of me
09:48:57LinusNi thought you wanted the prerecorded data
09:49:33LinusNi thought you wanted to include the hold time of your trigger
09:49:54midhaarrockerlol, no. Thats a different beast somewhere else.
09:49:58midhaarrockerI just wanted to know the time that has elapsed since the last prerecord index was written.
09:51:12LinusNi thought that you wanted to include the audio that was recorded during the hold time
09:52:39midhaarrockerThat's another problem but only when splitting while recording. Let's solve that later..
09:52:42midhaarrockerIf we save the data not from "n seconds before" but from "n seconds before + offset" the quantization of the prerecording woul be gone.
09:55:10LinusNthen i get it
09:55:40LinusNand i wouldn't mind such a loop, since it would be 2-3 frames max, if the quantization is 100ms
09:57:27midhaarrockerWell, it increases the memory consumption as the prerecord_buffer grows from int[30] to int[300]...
09:58:31LinusNthat's acceptable

15:13:59midhaarrockerLinus: Concerining triggered splitting while recording - with a minimal trigger duration - Do you have a good idea how to solve that? The problem is that we have to split somewhen "in the past."
15:14:21 Quit Strath ("Application closed")
15:18:16LinusNi think we could use the same mechanism as the prerecording
15:18:58midhaarrockerThat would mean that we don't write the last n seconds but keep them in the prerecording buffer.
15:19:12midhaarrockerwrite = write to file
15:20:01midhaarrockerAnd those n seconds are a new parameter in the mpeg code (prerecording time usually differs from the minimal trigger duration)
15:25:56LinusNor rather, we extend the prerecording mechanism to work with spluts as well
15:32:19midhaarrockerSo that it automatically uses the appropriate settings to fill the prerecord_buffer depending on wether the recorder is prerecording or recording ?
15:32:41midhaarrockereither the prerecord or the split time?
15:33:05LinusNwell, there is no such thing as a prerecording buffer
15:33:16LinusNit is the same buffer as for recording
15:33:27midhaarrockerI know, its an array of indices
15:33:53LinusNah, ok, now i know what you mean
15:34:39midhaarrockerYou named it prerecord_buffer (which confused me slightly at the first glimpse)
15:34:46LinusNyes, and when it saves to disk, it always leaves as much in the buffer as the presplit time says
15:35:05midhaarrockerok, seems we're talking about the same idea.
15:35:39LinusNproblem is, the buffer saving mechanism doesn't know how many bytes to leave
15:35:59LinusNit will have to use the prerecording buffer to find out
15:36:10midhaarrockercould some watermark be abused for that?
15:37:52LinusNwell, it would be WATERMARK-calculated_prerecording_amount
15:39:08midhaarrockerhöhö, I thought it the other way araound some presplit time increased watermark.
15:39:54 Quit MT ("changing servers")
15:40:15LinusNsilly me
15:40:48LinusNactually, the watermark won't matter
15:41:17LinusNit just needs to save a little less that it does today, now it saves the entire buffer
15:43:40midhaarrockerok. That means that the end-of-data mechanism gets extended by a presplit time condition rather than tuning the watermark according to the presplit time.
15:43:41 Join MT [0] (
15:44:08midhaarrockeror is there no watermark at all while recording nowadays?
15:45:09LinusNyes of course, it must have time to save the data before the buffer is full
15:45:23LinusNso we have a quite generous watermark
15:46:39midhaarrockerNow it's silly me. I always thought about the watermark neglecting that it is dynamic to the spin up time...
15:47:24LinusNthe recording uses a constant watermark
15:49:58midhaarrocker* some fog in midhaarrockers brain dissolves and he recognizes that all these watermarks don't really affect the presplit time thing *

18:33:58matt1anyone know how to fix the charging circuit on a 20GB Jukebox recorder? Mine wont charge
18:33:59 Quit earHurts (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
18:34:33midhaarrockerhow did you fry it?
18:35:52matt1no idea. I bought it like that :( (unknowningly, from eBay)
18:36:26midhaarrockerAre you sure the charger is broken and not the batteries?
18:37:32matt1ive tried it with differnet batteries and a different charger. I presume even if theres no charge in the batteries, and you plug the charger in, the Archos will turn on right?
18:38:21midhaarrockerno, when the batteries are drained the archos won't boot. Wether the charger is applied or not doesn't help here.
18:39:52matt1right. Ill give it another go, but im sure ive gone down that route. It is possible to blow the charging circuit though? If the batteries are charged, and the chargers plugged in, the batteries just drain as normal
18:41:42midhaarrockerIf you're only playing music with the archos the batteries should get charged. If you use the archos as an external hd for your pc it can consume so much energy that the charger can not compensate and the batteries get drained.
18:42:13matt1no, i was just playing music. Its pretty baffling to be honest. Unless im just not using the right spec charger :S
18:44:45midhaarrockerBtw: there is no real charging circuit, but only a DC-DC converter in the recorders. AFAIK it was the players that were much more prone to broken charging circuits.
18:45:05matt1ah, thats re-assuring!

18:51:54midhaarrockerPoor earHurts - he has a one-key-only keyboard :(
18:55:43TeRmInAlCrAzYCan anyone tell me how long the standard batteries from archos should last? I've a flashed JBR20, and I'm getting (maybe) 1.5 hours... :(
18:56:28midhaarrockerthat sounds like broken batteries.
18:56:31TeRmInAlCrAzYOops, just checked the Battery FAQ
18:56:37TeRmInAlCrAzY8 hours?
18:57:32TeRmInAlCrAzYI remember someone taking apart their archos, was in a post on the mailing list
18:57:40TeRmInAlCrAzYhe had battery life issues
18:57:49TeRmInAlCrAzYfound he had a bad battery contact
18:57:57TeRmInAlCrAzYI hope this is just bad batteries
18:58:01TeRmInAlCrAzYnot a bad box :(
18:58:42midhaarrockerBut that was a fm recorder (of a V2), not a JBR. The fm has internal batteries, not exchangable by the user.
18:58:54midhaarrocker(or a V2)

19:04:21TeRmInAlCrAzYIt's just that I waited for 6 weeks to have this delivered, and the thing is eating juice
19:04:33TeRmInAlCrAzYI have some new batteries in a charger, hope that fixes it
19:05:40midhaarrockerJust recently I had to replace my batteries, too. It was only one cell that went bad, but my unit wouldn't last longer than ~ 1h either.
19:07:11TeRmInAlCrAzYThanks - I'm feeling a bit cheered up! I have some long journeys coming up, and the 'box is going to make it much more bearable ;)
19:07:42midhaarrockerdepends on the music on it :)
19:07:54TeRmInAlCrAzYHrrrummm yeah!
19:08:08TeRmInAlCrAzYI'm weird(ish) tho'
19:08:39TeRmInAlCrAzYi've got everything from gregorian chants to goth metal, and everything in between
19:08:44TeRmInAlCrAzYa lick for every mood :)
19:09:14TeRmInAlCrAzYBTW, silly question
19:09:29TeRmInAlCrAzYI've checked the faqs, all over google, all sorts
19:09:34TeRmInAlCrAzYand I can't get an answer
19:09:50TeRmInAlCrAzYDo larger headphones significantly affect battery life
19:10:45midhaarrockerThat depends not so much on the size but on the impedance of the headphone.
19:11:34TeRmInAlCrAzYAh hah −−- shuffles off to google for another crack at it

19:12:53midhaarrockerGenerally: if you have two headphones and one sounds louder than the other at the same volume - guess what: the lounder one is more 'efficient'
19:13:15*midhaarrocker never selects headphones for efficiency
19:13:49TeRmInAlCrAzYAnd thus uses less power - is that right?
19:14:08TeRmInAlCrAzYI have a set of Koss UR-30's, with impedence of 100ohm
19:14:15TeRmInAlCrAzYCan't find out what the stock headphones are
19:14:39TeRmInAlCrAzY(btw thanks midh... I'm learning more in 5 minutes here than ages with google ;)
19:15:53TeRmInAlCrAzYbtw, have to agree on selection criteria -> I base it on how much ... bass I can get
19:15:58TeRmInAlCrAzYLove bass ... mmmm
19:16:29midhaarrockermore bass uses more power.
19:16:35midhaarrockerTo be honest - I'd be surprised if the kind of headphones changed the on-time by more than 1/2 h.
19:18:16midhaarrockerI'm not quite sure here but I somehow have this value of ~30 ohms for a typical head phone impedance in my head. But I may be completely wrong.
19:19:06TeRmInAlCrAzYwell, koss portapro's are 60
19:19:16TeRmInAlCrAzYso it looks like you are right there
19:19:45TeRmInAlCrAzYI agree about 1/2hour -> especially when you consider that there is also a hard disk and a cpu to run
19:20:33TeRmInAlCrAzYI haven't changed the bass or bass boost settings at all, left them standard -> the headphones do all the work there
19:20:51midhaarrockerAre they closed ear-buds?
19:23:25TeRmInAlCrAzYclosed full ear coverage monsters ;)
19:23:38TeRmInAlCrAzYI suppose I am asking for trouble, here :)
