Sorry for the delay.  We have been rolling up a number of bug fixes and feature requests into the new version.

Still unable to get album art through Vinylstudio. J river media center resolved the issue months ago. What's the hold up?

The issue "For anyone interested in this, I found the cause. Discogs has evidently moved its images server to CloudFlare and they (understandably) require the hostname to be set in the TLS handshake extensions.

If you are using OpenSSL in your client, you can achieve that with the following line of code:

SSL_set_tlsext_host_name (ssl, hostname);

where ssl is an SSL * instance created via SSL_new.

OK, thanks.  In my experience, the GT40 is not the most robust device in the world (I had one and it died completely).

Thank you for your replies.
It seems it might be a hardware problem after all since I now have a distorted signal in Audacity as well (really odd that i didn't have that at first). However, the distortion in the signal is much lower in Audacity and doesn't overpower the music like it does in VinylStudio. The problem also only affects the left channel.
At the moment I'm waiting to hear back from Furutech.
Thanks again for your time.
Hello again,

I thought about this some more and you should check that equalisation is not enabled in VinylStudio's Check Level dialog.  You might need to expand the relevant section of the dialog to see it.

I don't know what would cause this.  So you have tried reducing the recording level slider in VinylStudio?

Thank you for your suggestion.  We will take note of it.
Technical Support / Extreme clipping overload (MacOS 10.15.7)

Downloaded VinylStudio to test if it can replace my current set-up for vinyl ripping.

However, I ran into problems right away as VinylStudio doesn't seem to be able to handle my ADC properly.
I use a Furutech ADL GT40α and the incoming signal from it gets way overloaded and distorted. The left meter in the "Check Level" window is all red. Lowering input volume does not help. It still sounds as if the volume is beyond max with heavy distortion and clipping. I have no idea what to do to fix this.

I've tested on two Macs; MacBook Air (2020) MacBook (early 2015). Both running MacOS 10.15.7.
These can handle my ADC without problems in Audacity but not in VinylStudio.

Is there any way this can be fixed?

Thanks for your help.

My desktop has enough oomph to be able to run at least four or five normalisation tasks concurrently (one task uses ~15% CPU).

It would speed the process up. A bit.
