I assume with "standalone version" you mean a binary that has portable mode enabled by default

Well, here we go:

Thanks for your work.
I've noticed a minor issue (unless it's wanted or i misunderstand the purpose of display), it probably exists since a long time.
I have an i7@980 with 6 cores with HT.
But, after install, and "Choose based on core" is checked, the cursor is on 4 (when i would expect 6 in that case).
Is it normal ?

It's perfectly normal. As long as you keep "Choose [...] based on the number of CPU cores" checked, the slider doesn't apply and it can be ignored altogether

The slider currently defaults to 4, yes. But that is completely unrelated to the number of parallel threads that will be used if you let the program decide.

Also note that the heuristic, which is used to automatically decide the number of parallel threads (based on the number of CPU's), is not a simple "1:1" mapping.

Looks more like this:

Nope, works perfectly fine on my Windows 8.1 machine:

Is this problem reproducible? If so, what are your system specifications? Does the debug console show any helpful info?

@ TOM_SK

Ha, the guru strikes again...

Just for the fun of it, can you try to change your display color depth from 32bit to 16bit and see what happens?

The reason I ask is that on my machine LameXP only works with 16bit colors, with 32bit colors I get exactly this error.


Cheers

That doesn't seem to be possible any longer on Windows 8.

"Exactly this error" doesn't say anything here, though. That's because the unhandeled exception handler will be invoked, well, when the system throws some unexpected exception.

And this can be virtually anything! Like an access violation, a division by zero, an illegal instruction or whatever. We won't know without further details...


Here is a new Debug build, which might provide some insight on what's going on:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/muld...0.exe/download

Please use the Windows Debugger (WinDbg) for creating a proper stack trace:

Here using the i7 980X got a good difference between the two modes.
Converting 85 songs flac to mp3 VBR/quality level 1/algorithm-better quality.
61 seconds based on core and 50 seconds using 12 cores(HT).
And much faster than version 4.10, seems to have a better use of the instances.

Minor point about latest version:

The FAQ.html file needs to be updated. For the qaac addon it still links to the deprecated version from January 2014. The Manual.html file has the correct links...

Yes, a bug that could cause undesired delays in the creation of new encoder instances has been fixed with this version. This is especially noticeable, if you run a large number of instances in parallel.

The old FAQ document has been deprecated, in favor of the new manual. It will be removed in a future version.

(There's also an FAQ section in the new manual file)

Does this also mean that the Fraunhofer AAC encoder is no longer supported?


Cheers
manolito


P.S.
A little bit Off-Topic...
The latest SoX downloads 14.4.2 at SourceForge only offer dynamic versions containing dozens of library DLLs. (The previous version 14.4.1 war almost static, only 2 additional DLLs required). Now the current LameXP version contains a patched SoX version 14.4.2 which not only has DynamicAudioNormalizer built in, but it also is absolutely static, no separate DLLs required. Great! Can I use this version to replace SoX in my plugins, or are there any catches?

It's supposed to still work, but haven't used it for a long time. There haven't been any updates either.

Does anybody use that encoder nowadays, given that people generally seems to favor QAAC and given that Winamp (where the encoder DLL was taken from) is gone for good?

SoX can be built with a zillion of optional libraries. I guess the "official" Windows binaries have these optional dependencies included, as shared libraries (DLL files).

My binary is kind of a "minimal" build, with all the optional lib's disabled. That's because I don't use SoX for encoding/decoding or for other fancy stuff. If you don't mind about a few missing optional features, there's nothing to worry.

(BTW: Also some of the libraries included with the official SoX binaries are specific to MinGW. My binary is created with MSVC/ICL, and with the static C++ Runtime)
