Re: Want Gapless Playback? Register Your Interest Here!

It would be a nice addition, however, Linux/KDE desktop users can use Konqueror to read a CD as one mighty ogg or mp3 file, then use something like audacity to split those tracks where there ARE gaps. You can rip individual tracks as well then discard what you don't need afterwards.

 

So for example, an album like "Ogdens Nut Gone Flake" by Small Faces, I have the following oggs:

 

Ogdens Nut Gone Flake

Afterglow / Long Agos and Worlds Apart as one track

Rene (there is a short gap before this on the album anyway and the gap on the Fuze is short, too.)

Song of a Baker

Lazy Sunday

Then all the Happiness Stan tracks up to Happy Days Toytown as one track.

 

Similarly with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, I just split it "the mighty ogg" into 2 tracks representing side 1 and side 2 of the original vinyl album.

 

but yes it would be a good idea. Hope it can be done for ogg as that is a slightly more efficient compression system than mp3, and its distortion is less audilble than mp3.

Gapless would make it perfect (although I would love to be able to save the go list)

Ehhh....Gapless isn't a big deal for me.  I restore and edit music for a living and it's quite easy for me to make the small transititions between tracks; even on seamless pieces, non-problematic.

 If you don't mind having weird rips, theres also the --nogap option in lame, which will allow MP3s to be played gaplessly on any MP3 player.  But be warned, it tends to make track boundaries a little bit odd, since it stitches the end of one track with the start of the next in order to ensure that each "track" ends exactly on an MP3 frame boundary (and thus no gap need be inserted).  So if you skip to one track you might hear a bit of the previous track before the one you want begins.
