It's my pleasure. Thanks guys :)
As long as you have backups, things will be fine. LVM is pretty flexible, and it does makes things easier. To be honest I don't know the impact of SQ this will bring. The goal of Snakeoil is to provide the audiophile the means to do exactly what they want. To customise their sounds the way they want it to be.markiteight wrote: ↑2019-03-12 21:35Thank you. That guide was very useful for helping me better understand what LVM is and what it does, but when it comes to describing how to implement LVM it still left me in a state of, "but how do I...".
I came across this: https://opensource.com/business/16/9/li ... -guide-lvm with a much more basic step-by-step guide that I can understand well enough to either accomplish what I want or make things be very, very broken. ;-)
For my case I split up my network into VLANs, my NAS and my music player are on one VLAN, while everything else are on other VLANs. In order for the devices to intercommunicate (different VLAN are on a different subnet),I have setup a relatively fast router to direct traffic between these VLANs. The idea of this is the network is my rendering PC will only see a small subset of traffic on this network. If I include everything on the same network (about 60+ devices), the rendering PC will see a lot more traffic.
This is like connecting a cable directly between my NAS and render PC. But not really. In a sense the render PC only sees the NAS, but the NAS can see a lot more (as machines on other VLANs can connect to it).
There should be a red trash can that you can click to remove the mounts. Then click on "Add" to setup a new one. U3 might have broken something as I just enabled folks to create more than 1 mounts. Possibly introduced a bug with this change. I'd look into this and see if I can fix it. Or overhaul the whole thing to make it more intuitive.markiteight wrote: ↑2019-03-12 21:35Hmmm...that's not how it's working for me. Once a drive is mounted, it cannot be unmounted. I click "Add Mount Point" and it expands the "Mount Points Configuration" fields, including the trash can. Clicking the trash can simply removes that instance of Mount Point Configuration. Filling in the fields, clicking "trash" and then clicking save, as per the instructions, doesn't do anything either.
Ah, AIFF. This should be a software problem, but can't really be fixed easily.markiteight wrote: ↑2019-03-12 21:35Linn Kazoo. I tried Linn Kinsky (an older control point that was replaced by Kazoo in 2014-ish) as well with the same results.
It gets weirder. I discovered this new plot thickener this morning. I ripped my personal CD collection to AIFF many years ago and it appears these are the tracks that exhibit this problem. Anything in my collection that isn't AIFF, which includes AAC downloads from iTunes and MP3 files that accumulate over the years, play fine. This is consistent with Kazoo and Kinsky.
If memory serves AIFF is "reverse engineered" in Linux, so support for that will spotty. Also, AIFF can be decoded by libasound (or libsound?) or libavcodec. Pretty sure MPD have support for both, but I'm not entirely sure which library MPD will pick as the decoder.
You may need to turn on resampling to get this working. <- This requires a manual modification though as the GUI for doing this isn't coded into the WebApp yet....
Again the pleasure is all mine. This whole project kind of started as a joke over some light banter. Kind of a bet that surely nobody would download and use something called Snakeoil. But some people did, and that's the most awesome thing.
Truth be told the Internet has made audiophile a very toxic subject. People are so dead set against their ideals and am happy to "fight to the death" over issues that really isn't life or death. Every snake oil revision has a project name - Blind Testing, Gear Isolation, etc. Basically audiophile click bait topics. Hopefully via SEO every audiophile will search for these clickbaits and end up on the Snakeoil website.
Maybe a small percentage of these visitors will get curious enough to download and try this software. And hopefully they can finally realise - the most important element in an audio setup is really him or herself.
