    Thanks, I'll give it a try this evening. Should I make a new thread for the other bug (96 kHz playing too fast)?

    Heh, I'm sure. I know very little about the MediaPortal code.

    Nope, there's still a gap between tracks in both BASS and WASAPI modes. Do you want a couple of sample files, @hwahrmann?

    Same for me in both modes. In fact, when it changes track I get a small gap and a small amount of the previous track.

    Thanks heaps for looking into this issue. Love ya work ;-)

    Has it changed? is the gap different than previously?

    Yes, some sample files would be helpful.

    I am away now for 1 week of vacation and then another week for business trip, so i won't work on this before the end of the month.

    Hard to tell whether the gap length has changed because they used to fade-out and fade-in, but that's fixed in your test version.

    Attached are two tracks that should seamlessly join with gapless playback, along with a file where they've been combined so you can hear what it should sound like.

    By the way this thread gives a lot of hints as to how gapless playback should be implemented in the BASS engine.

    Thanks for the files. i will have a look at them later on.

    Believe me, i have gone already through all those threads. :)

    At the moment it looks like that i am loosing the time between the end of the song and the creating of the next song.
    Seems i need to look into some pre-buffering.

    Pure Audio uses it's own ring buffer for playback. i had a look at this implementation as well, but found it far too complicated to maintain.
    I will re-evaluate that, when i have time for development again.

    Yeah the next track has to be pre-loaded in some way before the current track ends. Presumably the best time to do this is when the entire currently playing track has been buffered.

    @TranceManNZ, @DragonQ

    May i ask you, how you rip your musicfiles? I ask, because i have spend a lot of time to get gapless playback working here and now it works like a chrme. I am listening nearly completely to classical music and for this perfect gapless playback is prerequisite. A long time i have used flac-images with cuesheet, but now it works with single files. For testing I would like to propose the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. Between the first and second movement there is only the basson playing a note. If you like to test this violin concerto, please let me know!

    Best regards
    Helios

    I use EAC after going through the basic setup. Once the offset is set-up correctly (which is done automatically if you give it a few CDs for testing), then the resulting FLACs will match the AccurateRip database and will play correctly without gaps in Foobar out-of-the-box.

    OK, EAC secure mode. Then please try to rip an image with cuesheet. After that split the image with cuetools. Please give it a try!
