FLAC support?

Hi,
I just read about the Grace plugin on the Bedroom Producers Blog and was very interested cause it seem to be a very good plugin. I havn't tested it yet cause I don't use WAV no more. My samples are all in FLAC format and the description of Grace say that it supports WAV AIF and SND. Thats sad. So I guess you already know what I really would like to see someday (or earlier) smile Do you plan or did you thought about FLAC support?

Thanks

Re: FLAC support?

Hi PP0815,

Welcome to the forum!

Sorry, I don't have any immediate plans to add FLAC support. It's going to be fair bit of work to support FLAC and there are a few other things that take higher priority at the moment. I'll keep it in mind for the future.

Can I ask why you prefer to use FLAC over WAV? Is it just filesize?


Thanks
Shannon

Re: FLAC support?

One year later............
.....yes it's "just" the filesize. Since I digitized a part of my vinylcollection and there are still a lot of records left that also want to go that way (my collection is approximate 8000)  filesize still matters IMO. I also don't see a reason why someone should not benefit from the lower filesize (approximate half of a WAV). Defragmentation is faster, backup is faster, sending over the internet is faster.
I find it sad that flac is not that relevant in some software (would like to see it wavsaur or in shortcircuit 1 but since there is won't be another shortcircuit.....). I'm not a programmer so I'm probably completly wrong but I guess it's not THAT complicated to implement it. (I hope you don't hate me for that cause I know that is something non-progammers say often. "Do this or do that. It can't be that complicated" wink )
Its just guessing because I once ask for flac support on ModPlug Tracker. And the programmer implemented it like it was nothing.
So I hope the "things of higher priority" have been done yet. The future is now wink

Thank you. I still havn't used it but your software really looks sexy.

The years go so quickly! I'm sorry to say FLAC support is still not a priority.

:chuckle: wink

Flac support is totally not an unreasonable request. It's something that would be easy to add if there was a nice third-party library I could use for it. However I'm not aware of anything. Being a Delphi developer, the options for third-party libraries are usually limited.
