dbPoweramp & uncompressed flac question?

gimpodgimpod Posts: 1,775
I have ripped over 500 CDs to uncompressed flac with very good results for the most part, but I am having one problem and that is the break between the tracks or in the case of cds like Pink Floyd cds the lack of. If I convert to flac the break is there (wrong, it's not suppose to be there), If I convert the same file to uncompressed wav the break is not there.

My question is, can this behavior in flac be turned off and if so how ?

P.S. I don't care about drive space at 12TB's I don't think I'll be running low for awhile.
Pink Floyd, Just makes me want to turn it up too 12 and share it with the world!!. JMO

    I don't think its the flac itself, more likely it's the software that is playing it. Try playing in foobar 2000 and see how it sounds.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    That was it, but I don't like foobar 2000. I guess the codecs for WMP can't keep up so I'll keep looking something else.

    Well glad you at least got to the root of the problem. I don't use the computer as my player, I use a squeezebox.

    Whatever you use to play the FLAC files has to support gapless playback.
