Gapless albums playback

Go to solution Solved by andrewilley,

What is the best combination of settings to ensure gapless playback of albums where the tracks should (and do on CD) playback without any pause/silence/click between them?

I currently have mine set to:

Auto-advance fading: No fading

Manual track change fading: Short Crossfade

Preload gapless tracks: none

Silence between tracks: 0ms

Crossfade length: 5000ms

Short manual crossfade length: 400ms

But listening to Abbey Road, where the second half of the album is a gapless medley, there was a noticeable split-second click or pause between the tracks.

Gapless will only work if your MP3/etc files are encoded with the right helper information. Otherwise the nature of packet-based encoding may mean there could be a slight inconsistency at the beginning or end of the audio data. You can check this in the Info/Tags display from the Player Screen menu:


I would also suggest increasing the preload period (in Settings=>Audio=>Crossfade/Fade/Gapless) to allow the start of the second file to be read from storage before the first one finishes.
