Peter, have you listened to any ACDC with the new settings?  Wow..

Not particularly with these settings, but maybe two weeks ago 3 tracks from my Demo Gallery passed by and I wondered where the nastyness had gone (ADDC is not always the most friendly). But since I was just playing music from a larger playlist, I forgot to revisit it. So I guess I need to now !

I expect guitars with a lot of air in them and with a 2 fold more fundament and even punch. More slick too. Am I right ?

Regards,
Peter

Dirty Deeds was the album and the guitars are just like you say...but the whole presentation is so profound and spectacular and the soundstage sooo very wide and crystal clear. 

A while back I made some fancy vibration isolation stuff for the NOS1a G3 and it cleaned up the mids and highs tremendously without changing any software settings.  The change of sound was not subtle and I had to get rid of my cheap-arse speaker cable for something a bit more suitable to tame the presentation...which worked.  Anyway, these new settings combined with my anti-vibration stuff are just fabulous.

Count me in! I've talked about this idea for years, pls make this happen.

Clevo P775Dm3-g
Nvidia Gtx 1060 | Idle: 58°c
i7-6700k | Voltage offset -141mV | Idle: 51°c

Windows 10 | Version: 1703 | Build: 15063.674

Would I be forced to install that test build? Or are we able to
make your sw a bootable image with that version embedded?
I could see this sitting in a little partition like how mac os does recovery.

Yes Peter, the sound with your latest settings is spectacular. The basses are bigger, not sure that they are also deeper, there's more detail and also the soundstage is wider and deeper. In moments I had the feeling that the upper bass invades a bit the low mids but I can not be sure, I comment it just in case it can give some clue to make an even better sound.

Anyway, I like these settings more than the ones I have until now. As I say, spectacular!

However apart from getting stutters, de Remote Desktop connections is killed.

That won't be related to mentioned settings. Can be the "Use Remote Desktop" setting or possibly that you try this in Normal OS (W10 versions exist which do that but are OK in MinOS). Or the W10 version itself ...

If you have stuttering with these settings, then I'm afraid you'll need to back out a bit (try a lower xQ1 and see how far you can go with it, upwards). Or, try for your situation how the SFS relates (all works in combination with each other).

Regards,
Peter

I tried Peter's settings as far as possible on my 2-core i3 T6100:

Q1 x xQ1 = 30x40.
Q3,4,5, = 1,1,1.
SFS = 20.
ClockRes = 15ms.
Custom Filter = Highest for 705600.
no Appointment Scheme.
OSD Text = Off.
Wallpaper (front and back) On.


However apart from getting stutters, the Remote Desktop connections is killed immediately after hitting Play.

Any suggestion how I can tweak the above settings, get a bit of the advantage, without the stutters/disconnection?

Best, Dennis

Dear Ramesh,

I must say that now when I hit Play after selecting an album, I always tense up just a bit!!

Justified. And I set myself to solve it (today).

The culprit is this one :

Quote
- Hit Play; waited a while, nothing seemed to be happening
- Hit Stop;
- Hit Play again, fairly soon after Stop

Meaning : if one doesn't have the "senses" that this may end up in misery, then, well, it will.  Happy And btw, this should trigger the alarm bells :

Quote
- Hit Play; waited a while, nothing seemed to be happening

So if I see this, I will think "uh-oh" and next be in control (like quitting XXHighEnd would be the best solution, but which I do not do because I want to run into the issue (learning from it, so to speak).

Quote
- Track begins very briefly; Alert pops up (the Crack 24 alert);

If it would always be accompanied by this message, I would definitely have solved it soon. But people are telling that they don't see the message (after playback stopped !) so I better don't believe those people or otherwise I don't know where to start. And mind you please, this is completely different from the situation that playback continues after the noise.

Btw Ramesh :

Playing with Peter's new settings: Q1: 30/40; Q3,4,5: 1; SFS 120; Clock 15ms; do nothing with cover art

There are two errors in that.  Wink

Thank you for your clear description !
Peter

Just got this again.  Adding some information hoping it helps, have not been able to reliably reproduce the problem.

Playing with Peter's new settings: Q1: 30/40; Q3,4,5: 1; SFS 120; Clock 15ms; do nothing with cover art

Attended mode.

The sequence was as follows.
- Drag folder over to play list; first track selected
- Hit Play; waited a while, nothing seemed to be happening
- Hit Stop;
- Hit Play again, fairly soon after Stop
- Track begins very briefly; Alert pops up (the Crack 24 alert);
- Burst of noise;
- Album stops;
- Clear playlist; drag folder over to playlist; first track selected; hit Play again; all is well

I must say that now when I hit Play after selecting an album, I always tense up just a bit!!

Hi Peter,

Yep...those settings are much, much better.  I had gone back to my old settings but in my short listening so far this morning my sound is superb and I do now think you are onto something.  I'll expand after I've had more time to listen. 

Cheers,

Anthony
