Title: [x] 2084 Extreme clipping using Denon Classic Style acs4 skin
Post by: Mark Levinson on July 08, 2019, 22:11:16
Solved!


I experience extreme clipping whenever I use the Denon Classic Style acs4 skin and
display the playlist window.


This is a new problem that wasn't present in earlier versions of AIMP.

The clipping also sometimes appear when I display the equaliser.

The clipping appears when I put the AIMP player on the lower part of my screen and
only affects the lowest part of the AIMP player.


I've updated AIMP and the Denon Classic Style skin to no effect.

Any help much appreciated, as AIMP & Denon skin is my all time favourite music player!  ???

На скриншоте артефактов, вроде, не видно.
Версия скина весьма древняя.

Thanks for Your suggestion! I installed the beta, but the clipping is still there, but a little less extreme.
It appears to be caused by displaying the Playlist window.

I would need a V-sync setting in AIMP, I think, that would make it wait for the whole image to be drawn.

I forgot to mention I display my desktop on a wall projector at 60 Hz.

You are correct, I didn't manage to capture the clipping in any of my screenshots.

The clipping almost makes AIMP transparent, so I can see my desktop through it.


I know the Denon skin is old and that it is probably the cause of the clipping; but I
don't know how to contact it's author.


I have another computer as a Back Up which runs AIMP build 1697 and v 2.51 of the skin
and it does not have any clipping.

I will try to install them on my main rig.


I run AIMP on my laptop, tablet and phone as well.  8)

Thanks for your help as well!  :)


I have a very good Denon HiFi stereo, which runs the sound from my computer and
it has a real Denon casette player that is similar looking to the AIMP skin and that's
why I love it.

Okay. I've installed a separate AIMP 4.00 and I'm back at Build 1697 and the
Denon skin 2,51. And the clipping is gone.

Not a perfect solution, but it keeps me from going insane.


It would be nice if some Dev took a look at this issue sometime!  :D


AIMP is so amazingly excellent!  :)

Hi Black_AVP!  8) Excellent work!

I realized who you were yesterday when I googled for different Denon skins!

I must have that skin with the blue amplifier meters!  :o  Simply amazing!


Unfortunately I am very conservative in my computer usage, often missing
fun things and only discovering stuff long after the hype is gone and when
the creators have moved on to other projects.  :(

I had a WinAmp NAD skin that was great, but needed some tweaking, and
when I contacted it's maker he didn't want to work on his old files. In the end
I managed to fix it like I wanted, but there's no way I can understand how the
AIMP skins work and do the same to them.


Anyway, thanks for your wonderful Denon skins!  8)


Have a cold beer from me!

I respect your work too much to start begging you to "fix" the Denon skin for my own benefit!  :)


I'm very interested in computers and I go through redicoulus amounts of work to keep
mine clean, efficient and opimized. I have one computer that's over 20 years old and it is
still the fastest in the menues. It sometimes download movies at night, while almost not
sounding anything and hardly consuming any electricity at all.  :o


Cheers!  :)

Alright, I'm officially a moron.  :'(

I started mucking about with my AIMP installations and the shared folders
gave me lots of problems, as the changes I made to skins and what not
began to appear in my other AIMP versions. The clipping got worse and
began showing even in my old ones! I thought AIMP was possessed by
the devil.  >:(

Had to reinstall from scratch after cleaning the registry, loosing all my
playlists  :(  ,and yet the clipping continued.

As the last straw to test I updated my graphics card drivers, which was
the solution to the clipping problem.  ::)


The problem was at my end, which I had no way of knowing or suspect,
as the clipping appeared only in later versions of AIMP.


Sorry for wasting your time, gentlemen!
And thanks for your help!
