Firstly, I wanted to say hi to everyone on the forum.
This is a really great community, full of friendly enthusiasts, all keen to share knowledge and insight.
I’ve found answers to several questions amongst these threads.
My trial period is nearly up, and I shall be purchasing a license.
Origin is the software I’ve been looking for.
I’ve tried Jriver, and it was great, but I wanted something that purely focused on audio.
Foobar sounded good, but felt unnecessarily over complicated, and I just couldn’t be bothered with it.
Origin has got a sweet-looking clean interface, it’s uncluttered and simple.
Output assignment is intuitive; switching between Zen DAC v2, Xduoo XD05 or sending straight to my Marantz over WiFi is quick and easy.
There are so many possibilities with processing and upsamplng; I’ve never been one for tweaking but Origin has opened a bit of a rabbit hole, and I appear to have stumbled down it!
And the sound quality… Oh my word!
Fantastic. It really does sound sublime.
It’s great to see developers actively involved within a knowledgeable community, and that was one of my main reasons for deciding to buy a licence.
While I’m saying hello, I guess I ought to ask you all a question, as that’s what this forum is about…
Does Origin change my tags? Or add tags?
I may well be going mad, but I thought it had added some meta data.
I could be wrong. I’m not pointing a finger just yet, but I like to do my tagging myself, and I like my tags the way I do them.
Software that automatically adds tags or fiddles with my tags feels like an infringement; rather like someone rifling through my sock drawer, and arranging socks incorrectly, or not even in pairs.
