First off, thank you PG for all you’ve done with the new version. It’s really fantastic: beautiful, logical, works great. Really amazing work.
And thanks for the new resampler. But I do have a request. I wanted to ask if it would be possible to add a “custom” preset to the resampler presets, that would have controls for all of the SoX parameters over their possible ranges.
Slider for Bandwidth -b 74-99.7
Slider for Phase -p 0-100
Checkbox for Aliasing -a
Radio button or selector to select VHQ (-v) or HQ (-h)
I’ve tested the existing WL9 presets with the infinitewave test files and the “Best” seems to attenuate from 21800-22050 (VHQ 99?), down to the “Standard” preset that attenuates from 20300-22050 (maybe HQ 95?). Both no aliasing, and linear phase I think.
But I’d like to try other settings with aliasing, something like VHQ, -b 97.5, Linear Phase (-p 50), and Aliasing enabled. With those settings, the charts would look very much like Pyramix Apodizing and Weiss Saracon at infinitewave, running from about 21500-23700. I’d like to try something like that (vs. the normal steep filter being the ideal), to see why they chose gentler filtering and allowed aliasing.
Alternately, for a perfect steep curve, afaik nobody else has put the maximum -b 99.7 in a SoX preset within a program, but 99.7 should look very much like the Izotope RX High Steepness “perfect” curve, more so than the slightly less steep SoX in the Ableton preset or the SoX VHQ Linear Phase, (and probably the Wavelab 9 “Best” preset, which I think will probably look exactly like both of those).
The full range of settings might be a little extreme, but you could possibly put “not recommended” above the bandwidth range 74-85, and phase range 51-100. But at least we’d have all the options of the command line.
I know we should be listening and not looking at the pictures, but I like looking at the pictures, and a lot of other people do too, and if the options are there, it would be great if they were made available.
