So I’ve now ditched the 64kb/s streams which seemed a bit pointless in this day and age. However all the streams are now at 320kb/s again and the 6 busiest channels have 128kb/s alternatives. I’ve also finished updating the reggae stream’s playlist in what turned out to be a sizeable updated with lots of new promotional material having sat waiting. Anyway for those with an interest the earlier update to the psychedelic trance stream amounted to the addition of 15% new tunes while this reggae update amounts to 25%.
Enjoy!September 25, 2015 at 11:34 pm #1279150
The psychedelic trance stream update is now done. I’ve cleaned up the reggae stream’s playlist which had some issues. And the 64kb/s and 128kb/s alternative mount points are live for rap, breabeat, dubstep and electro channels.March 16, 2014 at 3:18 am #1277723

Some alternative software I tried which also claims to be able to remove silence from MP3s and audio files…
1. mpTrim – (Windows)
Although this software appeared promising at first because of it’s ease of use and batch processing abilities. This package appears to be limited to just three settings for controlling the level silence to remove: accurate (default) (fast), aggressive and very aggresive; none of which were accurate enough for my needs unfortunately.
What exactly can mpTrim do for you?
mpTrim can trim MP3s – removing silent or unwanted parts.
mpTrim can adjust the volume of MP3s. Volume change can be manual or automatic (volume normalization).
mpTrim can fade-in/out MP3s (to fix abrupt beginning/ending).
mpTrim can clean-up MP3s and recover wasted disk space.
mpTrim keeps the music quality intact, no matter how many times you process an MP3, because it works directly in the MP3 format without having to decode/re-encode. That also makes it very fast.
2. dBpoweramp Music Converter (dMC) – (Windows)
dBpoweramp Music Converter seems to need to decode and re-encode the files you want to edit which is too time consuming for my needs. I also didn’t find it very user friendly.
About dBpoweramp Music Converter…
Audio conversion perfected, effortlessly convert to mp3, FLAC, Apple lossless and more. dBpoweramp Music Converter™ has become the standard tool for audio conversions, over 30 million users world trust their converting to dBpoweramp
3. mp3splt – (Linux)
Finally I also tested mp3splt although I was put off by it’s apparent need to split files rather than simply deleting the silence from them. I also have a strong preference for manipulating and editing this kind of file in a graphical environment and I only run Linux as a server.
mp3splt is a free command-line utility that allows you to split mp3, ogg vorbis and native flac files from several splitpoints, without need of decoding and reencoding. It is useful to split large mp3, ogg vorbis and native flac to make smaller files or to split entire albums to obtain original tracks.
If you are splitting an album you can get splitpoints and filenames automatically from servers on internet like freedb.org, tracktype.org or from a local .XMCD (.CDDB) or .CUE file (see -c option), with the possibility to adjust them automatically with silence detection (see -a option).
You can also try to split files automatically with silence detection (see -s option), trim files using silence detection (see -r option), or by a fixed time length (see -t option)
Or if you have a file created either with Mp3Wrap or AlbumWrap, you can easily split it just with one command (see -w option).March 11, 2014 at 9:34 am #1277715

This is what happens to websites that fear change:
USH.NET killed off
> Quite a big deal IMO, it was almost as old as this forum and one I’ve visited for over 10 years. But anyone else who used it will know that it had turned to complete shit over the last few years.
> Seems to be the way things are going though – no need for forums with Facebook 🙁
> Yeah i’m quite sad about this- i never contributed really, but was always good for a read (especially some of the scandal)
> My fav story on there was about a female hardcore producer called Abeyance who was known to ermmmm give “favours” to get on in the scene.
> Then the people on USH put up her pics that appeared in a porno, including one where she hadn’t quite wiped her arse properly
> haven’t been on USH for prob 4 or more years but suprised to hear it’s been canned…
> wow, I remember when it started! Stop posting on there years ago, use to spend hours on irc in the room they had!
> What happened?
> Never really got into USH, seemed a bit to happy hardcore for my liking.
> Think guy just got sick of it, and like all forums it had quietened down a bit.
> Hadnt been on there in about 4yrs…used to be busy though
> Signed up to USH 8 years ago but never posted. It was too Happy Hardcore for me.
> It was a ‘new hardcore’ forum but there were plenty of people on there that only liked old skool. That was its downfall really – imagine if nobody on here liked the music the site was based on anymore. It just became a free for all with constant slanging matches. So yes I guess Paul just thought there was no point to it.
> Shame though, millions of posts of useful inorfmation lost. IMO he should reload a database back up from its heyday (2001-2002 or so) and then lock all the boards so it’s just there for reference.
> There was also a fair bit of antagonism between people on the board and the established producers. Shame as USH practically saved the more upfront hardcore scene in 2000.
> to be fair though most new hardcore is shiiiiiiiiiite. Too many people trying to write stereotypical anthems.
> I was a member since the early days but stopped going on there as an influx of complete nobheads made it go down the pan.
> Without it though I would never have got chatting to Dave so at least i can thank it for that. Also bought me a lot of good friends over the years.
> Shame it went so downhill I think the demise of hardcore in its current state along with the nobheads that invaded meant the owner couldn’t be bothered with it anymore and to be honest I can’t blame him.
> facebook is no substitute for a forum
> i agree with previous posters though , 99% of new hardcore is pure shite so i won’t really miss the place all that much tbhFebruary 20, 2013 at 10:48 pm #1267537

Everyone should post a hell of a lot more I recon like when SJ vanished for a week some years ago. We took on a lot of refugees and went over 1000 posts a day for 5 days.

I think PV is more diverse than it’s ever been, how many categories do we have now? 🙂 We’ve also had a feature to show existing thread titles on creation which should be a clue to some…February 15, 2013 at 8:07 pm #1267049
There’s no chance of that but helps if I don’t have to pay the bills alone.

I had planned to subscribe but most people I know no longer post much. Seems like only a handful of people post and many of those who do are so much younger than me I don’t have much in common. Plus its the same old topics and questions; I can see why some boards tell people to search before they ask (if we get one more “what do you think about the legalisation of drugs” thread I will scream). That said if I am still on here much when I find some work I will subscribe and have subscribed in the past.
Its a shame PV always seemed like home but I don’t really feel like I have much to contribute any more.
