Paul Oakenfold

he is the master of  radio one essential mixes. he has done over 30 of them. His programming/ track selection is magnificent. the only DJ that can really keep you entertained for 2 hours at a time. (please note that most of his essential mixes prior to 2000 was mixed from vinyl)

So who is your fav DJ and why?

some tips from Hans Beekhuyzen on how to get the most from your computer in terms of sound:




and optimizing foobar2000



recording techniques. be aware that how your music was recorded vastly influences the sound quality:

hydrogen audio forum for all your pure audio questions:

and the man himself talks loudspeakers:(if component setups are your thing) i prefer earphones an pc's




youtube-dl;

SO NOW YOU CAN DOWNLOAD YOUR AUDIO FROM YOUTUBE FOR FREE AND CHOOSE EXACTLY THE FORMAT YOU WANT

like youtube-dl(.exe) -f 140 (or 251 for opus) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=(youtube id)

if opus gets downloaded in a webm container (which foobar2000 wont play because it looks at the file extension  and doesnt recognize webm ) then use ffmpeg -i 1.webm -c:a copy 2.opus  and then without quality loss you can listen  in foobar2000 to that opus file.
 




for ffmpeg to copy :

and general audio conversion from ffmpeg:



protect your ears:






be aware of snapcraft. it allows you to install windows programs on linux (ubuntu in my case). so you can run windows programs  on linux no need for windows:




and if you are into cellphone sound:

for android:





for iphone:





external dac for inux:
