The actual interface is:

You can see the Quality parameter for VBR encoding go to 1023, like say the Aften specs:
Code:
[-q #]  VBR quality
        A value 0 to 1023 which corresponds to SNR offset, where
        q=240 equates to an SNR offset of 0.  240 is the default value.
For CBR encoding the up limit is 640 Kb/s

There are other important wished features like:
Dynamic Range Compression
-readtoeof

but seems Dimzon is missing and the new interface must wait.

Ah, thank you. Not getting enough sleep. Yeah it was the command parameters that triggered my asking this actually. I got the two mixed up, so sorry about that.

I meant to ask for CBR to 640Kbps. Okay, now time to go to sleep. ZZZzzz...

I was able to find the source code, change the maximum CBR setting to 640 and recompile. I hope you find this useful and that it was okay to do this. Attached is the modified .exe file.

[EDIT]removed attachment. See new mod in a later post.

I looked at the aften source code and it does allow for piping, so I'm not sure why that's happening.

I wanted to switch the input order back to how it used to be, i.e., output var first and input last. However, I'm unable to get the dang thing compiled using the latest build.

I've not used Intel's compiler so I'm not sure what's causing this this. Anyone who can point me in the right direction please would be greatly appreciated.

The source project files were kindly provided by wisodev here.

I'm not sure how those dpi files are supposed to be created is my problem.

Please test this version BeHappy_Aften449.

The interface is changed to:


Changes:
1) CBR is rounded to a valid value when is send to Aften (see AftenEncoder.cs). Upper limit extended to 640 Kb/s.

2) Dinamic Range Compression instead BandWidth

3) Read to End of File instead Selectively use 256-point MDCT

First test with aften rev449 seems ok:
Code:
Starting job J6.wav->J6.ac3
Found Audio Stream
Channels=6, BitsPerSample=16, SampleRate=48000Hz
Aften.exe -v 0 -b 448 -m 0 -readtoeof 1 -cmix 0 -smix 0 -dsur 0 -dnorm 31 -dynrng 5 - "G:\J6.ac3"
Writing RIFF header to encoder's StdIn
Writing PCM data to encoder's StdIn
Finalizing encoder
Complete

Thanks for doing that. It's also real easy to change the max 448 to 640 in AftenEncoder.cs. Just replace the two 448 values with 640. That way the support for 640kbps is available via Aften.

[EDIT] @tebasuna51
Your copy works great. I recompiled after I set the aften max back to 640 and it did not stop with the "pipe has ended" io exception message. Nice job. And nice job on the new options too. Do you want me to attach my version with the 640kbps cbr or do you want to just recompile yours and update the link above?

My initial version have already the CBR limit to 640 (only the initial default remain at 448). You can see the image at 437 Kb/s far of right limit (640).

It works for me too :

But I don't know if these settings are ok for a DD+ source.
What about LFE for instance ? Is channel mapping ok ?

Thank you tebasuna51 ...

Of course is not DD+ compliant (6 Mb/s, 13.1 channels,...)
Quote:

If input is 6 channel only can be 3/2.1 then LFE is included.

Really Aften have many parameters, only the habitual/important are present now.

Of course, if sources are correct mapped the output is also correct.

I added to the mods made by tebasuna51. I basically added the features I would use a lot:
- added Delete All to quickly remove all the jobs except the one that is processing
- added check box to allow you to keep any output created if you decide to abort early or if an error occurs

I hope this is helpful. Please test it out. Thank you.

The Aften config is different, so make sure to go in and set it to your liking. I just left my defaults in.

[EDIT] removed attachment. See updated mod in later post.

Thank you for the mods. Should be very useful to us all.

One request:
Can you make BeHappy remember last window position and size?
BeHappy starts out with a too big window and at random positions. This is sometimes very annoying.

Yeah, I hate this too actually. I just had some time, so I put it in for me as much as you.

changes:
- default window size is 800x400 now
- once you close it it'll save the size and position state

File includes exe, changed code and sample of new section in state file. Get it here.

Happy testing...

Please use links like http://www.mytempdir.com/ or similar to attach files, because with the forum method remain several days in "Attachments Pending Appoval" state.

I can't still test the previous mod.

Oh, crap. I didn't even notice the pending approval. I need to find some off-site hosting then.

I used the site you provided, thank you. Try this link.
