- add the possibility to use joker char (or regex) : using "*metal*" in the genre criteria would return all "Atmospheric metal" and "industrial metal" songs. This could also be done by adding a dropdown list with the "equals", "contains", starts with" and "ends with" items.
I added support for * to 3.2 RC1.
For example:
Genre: "*Rock + *Metal" (without quotes) -> select all tracks where genre contains Rock or Metal word.
* always mean "contains" and should be always at the start of the word, so you can't write "Rock*" or "*Rock*".

Yes, it seems JazzRadio, RockRadio, SkyFM and DIFM all are dead. So they will be removed in the next version, I can't do anything with this.

Winyl - Questions / Re: Winyl sound etc
« on: January 10, 2016, 09:09:32 AM »
About comparison Winyl and foobar2000. If you disable all DSP in foobar2000 (like resampler etc.) set volume to 100% in both Winyl and foobar2000 then output in both players will be bitperfect. So try to check these settings before comparing the players.

Is it sure that Winyl always sets in WASAPI  mode the playing frequency according to the actual track resolution?

Just guessing and thinking: can the shared rate (or WASAPI resampled rate in XMPLAY) set at 16/44.1 make sound card dacs, clock, driver etc. behave differently/better  (since it places less demand on resources of the card, jitter etc.), or even somewhat influence Winyl behavior ?
Shared rate applies only for DirectSound and WASAPI Shared, it doesn't do anything in WASAPI Exclusive mode which Winyl uses.

And regardless of the sample rate issues, what can be the cause of Winyl's softer sound? (after those settings changed it seems to improve to the degree that is surely OK for listening, but still the sound from Winyl is slightly different than WMP).
I don't know really, as I said maybe there is a post processing in WMP.

- does the sound engine of Winyl differ significantly from WMP/FOOBAR ?
- what is done with sound inside  Winyl ?
- to what extent the described effects are "placebo" and to what extent they have a justification in Winyls algorithms and/or settings ?
- I don't know about WMP maybe it's using some post processing, but Winyl and foobar2000 output is the same.
- If equalizer is disabled then nothing.
- There isn't any algorithm which can impact sound quality. So yes, I think it's just "placebo".

is it possible, in future release, to add these features to the smartlist creation ?
Yes, I plan to redesign smartlists in the future.

I'll look into it and if there won't be any problem it will be added to the next version.

Shall I sent you this Report.wer file?

Also check which file Winyl was processing when crashed, you can see it in updating library dialog (see screenshot here: and send me this file.

Looks like a false positive. Anyway detection ratio on virustotal is zero:
Make sure you downloaded the file from official (this) website.
