I've analyzed it a bit (default settings):FL and FR are left unaltered.FC is a simple 50/50 mix of FL and FR with an attenuation of 4.5 dBThe real magic is in the rear channels. The plugin does a tremendous job of extracting just the right portions of the FL/FR channels without producing any strange artifacts.Usage instructions can be found in the Dolby Headphone thread.OMG it's sounds perfect! exactly what i was looking for! thanx!!

And why Prologic if you have a pure 2.0 source?To doing upmix you should use Channel mixer, Matrix Mixer,...ATSurround plugin maybe.And for reverbs you can use Vst plugins.
@bertox: I'm using the latest versions of both foobar and the component@skipyrich: This is my setup:Winamp DSP Bridge: Enhancer 0.17 (Output: 16-bit)Channel Mixer (6CH+Sub)Advanced Limiter...Output set as: DS Primary Sound DriverBuffer: 2000 msOutput: 16-bitNo DitheringI used 6CH setup for channel mixer, then foobars volume maxes out (100%). Changing the volume using the toolbar or in the 'Playback' prefs page does nothing.This also happens when I'm using ATSurround.
NOTE: The only down side of this setup is the fact that you should stay way from the seek panel, because if you try to jump to a part of a song while its playing, the sound will jam(like a scratched CD), this is caused by V.I. But you should be able to change the level of foobar's volume with immediate effect.
2cybasoul: As I mentioned before, I'm not DSP professional, so I know that my DSP plugins is far from perfect 2byterhythm: Volume is changing by output plugin, I have no ideas how to forbid doing that. Winamp DSP Bridge with shoutcast working fine for me, so the only suspicious is Enhancer...
I have been using Channel Mixer quite very long time, and since I only use headphone (mostly at office). I use onboard AC97 compliant sound card, Realtek ALC655 with ASIO out provided by ASIO4ALL.Here is my foobar dsp setup:1. SSRC : Don't really needed, but since I want *consistent* sample rate throughout different sample rates input. I just put it at 48KHz and set the sampling quality at "High".2. Noise sharpening : set the effect 20%3. Equalizer 4. Channel Mixer : set the output to 6 channel, set upmix to off.5. VST Bridge to load V.I vst. Sometimes I use Free Surround at this point (it produces louder sound).6. Dolby Headphone wrapper : set the Room size as DH1: Reference Room.I'm quite happy with the setup, and the result is quite different from original stereo material.
I've download foo_channel_mixer.7z from my site then send it to virustotal.com. Results:foo_channel_mixer.7z (0/32): http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/5211a5f...c57f8e7325536bbfoo_channel_mixer.dll (0/32): http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/296a33f...b5425cc96692416
It also happens sometimes spontaneously, if I switch between music tracks often.
The issue I have happens with a 5 channel AC3 album, which has front stereo, rear stereo, and an lfe. No center.
oh yeah baby!!! I can clip all channels together now and break off my soundcard, my amplifier, my speakers and my ears at same time and blown my brain. Yeeaaahh!!!!!!!!!!!!!Juajuajuajajarajakaka.This is the perfect plugin now. well...he doesn't Pizza for me...but it's ok.You just add the Matrix plugin to the Channel Mixer and he becomes in greatest history mixing plugin.Good luck and sweet dreams (you work hard...)
