Re: ocenaudio - Sounddigger - 05-06-2016

Having used a previous version of this player/editor. I figured to get this update. But on windows 7 this version is crazy, frankly. Smilie_denk_55_fragezeichen_1

When I start the application, I get a window called "test for open file selector", with supposedly the option to select a WAV file or other audio file. However, whatever file you select and try to open, the window won't go away! There's simply no way to get rid of it, as all the application's functions (such as access to a "preference" menu) are blocked. Maddening, really.  Wall Anyone else getting this?

Also, there's no manual whatsoever, or even the slightest help file, anywhere online. I would suggest to the developers: if you don't want to make a manual, then keep things simple, and obvious: KISS rules!

I did regularly use the previous version 2.0.16 (which doesn't give the crazy start-up problem), but only for quickly browsing / checking certain files, under certain conditions (otherwise, I use other software) even if I found some things kind of clumsy / awkward, or simply buggy.

A word of caution: saving an audio file with that version (and this may also be the case for the new version) always totally screwed up the file!! This happens even if you didn't do anything to the audio file!!! I found this out when I used it just to edit some metadata. The audio should not have been touched when saving, but the sound quality was obviously degraded! I don't know WHAT happens exactly, but saving to WAV or MP3 is a total mess with the app, at least for v 2.x. It sounds kind of like when the resolution of the file is reduced, adding some kind of distortion. This is when free software can become REALLY expensive...  Dunno

And yes, I did check all settings extensively, there should be no error on my side. But who knows, even if I DID do something I shouldn't have, using the default settings (and such) should have avoided such an error.

Maybe they solved the issue (which I wanted to test, but was unable to, due to the silly start-up nonsense). But if you want to save files, then test things yourself and compare to be sure, or be sorry...

For the time being, I've reverted to the previous version, and only use it for quickly browsing files.
