Default MoodeAudio Forum

Just a gentle reminder that the new forum at Moode Forum has been live for several weeks now.

This diyaudio forum has been kept open as an archive of past communications (nearly 15000 posts!) but it is no longer being monitored regularly.

Exactly, thats why i posted a howto for absolute beginners on mo0de installation in the new forum. Including some explanations...
Check out Easy installation guide for absolute beginners
Perhaps it is unconventional but thats simply how I am doing it :-)

And on this occasion A THOUSAND THANK YOUs to everybody who contributed their knowledge, time and effort to this forum! Like TheOldPresbyope and so many others! After nearly 1500 posts (and reads on my side) there is really some melancholy involved leaving this place ... ;-)

Thanks sjoerdju for the beets info... most interesting and solved a drive full of orphan rips needing artwork.. :-)

I have since revisited my abcde config and setups..... The time and travails to configure for format, drive offset, artwork etc was becoming onerous with each and every os upgrade...(Ubuntu you need a rolling release ;-) )

Sooooo I downloaded and wrote to a live usb install, Daphile. (sort of MoOde for x86)
It has a ripper that is abcde base, has offset calibration, musicbrainz(s), lookup and 'accurate rip' checking all as checkbox defaults...:-)

I have an old HP t5470 thin client with 2Gb ram and 2Gb flash that just fits daphile.
Add an external cd/dvd drive and configure.
An old laptop or tower would be fine and everything can run from the Daphile live usb so just plug n play for ripping duties.

All headless and independent of main o/s and Moode player. No hit to resources on those setups... ;-)

Thanks @DRONE7, I hadn't considered using Daphile for CD ripping duties. I already have it on USB stick so will look into this. Like you I find ripping with Ubuntu convoluted at times -- I generally end up using MusicBee on a Windows install for that.

1. This is a must - wifi off, bt off, hdmi off, volume control off, eq off, resampling off.

2. added in /boot/config.txt :


3. added in /boot/cmdline.txt:

dwc_otg.microframe_schedule=0 dle=0 dwc_otg.nak_holdoff_enable=1 dwc_otg.fiq_fix_enable=0 dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N isolcpus=2,3

isolcpus is isolating two cpus only for mpd and works only on quadcore pi's

4. changed options in /lib/systemd/system/mpd.service, original value is uncommented:


tried different, for me fifo sounds best.


tried higher settings, but 70 is a good compromise


also tried higher values, but -15 is a good compromise

#ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/mpd --no-daemon $MPDCONF
ExecStart=/usr/bin/taskset -c 2,3 /usr/local/bin/mpd --no-daemon $MPDCONF

this one is starting mpd using isolated cpus and no other processes are using those cpus.

My streaming is sounding as good, as never before and now it is clear for me, that underclocking cpus and ram is really great.

Thanks to anybody, who found out, how to "audiophilise" and "de-digitituslise" moOde

Maybe some of those tweaks (which are not making system unstable) can be implemented in moOde?

Nice tweaks - definately a more "organic" sound, runs too slow for DSD streams though - plays about 2 seconds stops 2 seconds more stops - etc etc.
