I'm not sure what DH is but from what i understand it's a VST modelling algorithm built into the firmware of some devices.


It is also available in some software DVD players such as PowerDVD. And there is DH wrapper component.

TB IsoneSurround.
In internet you can find jb isone pro surround v1.0.1, which works without limitations.

Thanks!!
JB Isone Pro Surround is brilliant. I even managed to calibrate it for my UE5 earphones!
CMSS3D is limited to headphones only. As for DH and TB IsoneSurround -- just tested them; they're overall tolerable, but i certainly wouldn't use them for music since they enforce reverberation and it always makes a mess out of music :)

Hi Skipyrich,

I'm a request for you could you please create a VST version of your Channel Mixer foobar2000?

I think it's a very good plugin for stereo upmix; There's nothing on the web like yours. It would be possible feed with your VST a dolby digital headphone wrapped dll (six channel input and two channel output).

With a VST HOST in this way we could give dolby digital to everykind of audio card to whole system with ASIO DRIVERS.


Best Regards
Tony


P.S.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi, I hope someone can answer this for me..

I set 'convert mono to stereo' for a mono flac file I had, then forgot I had the DSP set.

All the files since then have been stereo.. I've probably processed 100 tunes.. will all these be converted one (Left?) channel of the files into dual mono now?

I always delete my flacs after I extract them to wav files, so that would suck

Does the plugin check if the file is stereo before attempting the mono to stereo DSP?

I am fearful I might have ruined a bunch of wavs

edit: a quick look in winamp at some wav's I created seem to be proper stereo files.. confirmation would be nice though

Hi!

I've a strange problem with foo_channel_mixer and foobar(last and older version also). I've 5.1 setup and upmix from stereo to 6 channels. When I'm change track subwoofer sound disappear and only solutions is restart foobar. Everything work with keyboard UP-DOWN selections and ENTER as a start playback key but not with mouse double click. With first play after start the program, I've a subwoofer sound everytime and only changing manually with mouse have this issue. I've try a clean instalation of windows and foobar, onboard Realtek and USB Maya U5 soundcard, different chanell mixer, foobar settings also  WASAPI ASIO KS DirectSound  but not luck.
My setup is Acer 5930g laptop, Maya U5 DAC with analog 5.1 speakers, Windows 7 x64.

Any ideas, someone have a similar problem?

Hello sir. thank you very much for this plugin

right now I'm mixing up my stereo music to 6 channels for my headphones.
Everything sounds great.

But i have to wait long time for changes for example on the speaker configuration
to be applied.

Is that normal?

It normally takes ~7 seconds to change the settings.

My system:
- Gigabyte h77 d3h
- xeon e3 1230 v2

This time depends on output buffer size.  File->Preferences->Playback->Output->Buffer length

Hey konradoo77, have you fixed the problem with disappearing subwoofer after skipping or changing track in tracklist? I have the same Problem and no idea to fix it.
I found that I can reactivate the subwoofer signal without restarting foobar when I start a new track with differnt KHz. So when subwoofer signal is lost I could start a track with 96 Khz or so and then after 44.1 Khz is working again. But that is very complicated and not useful.
Did you find any other solution?

Hey klingklang, nice catch! With directsound output it's also work for me, but I use KS and must have resampler with it and sadly it's still buggy.

Thank you. What is "KS"? The message from hydrogenaudio was in my spamfolder. Please excuse the late response.

I have some 8-channel FLACs that only have stereo content (i.e. all channels are silent except FL and FR), so I tried to use this component in a Converter job to produce 2-channel FLACs. The output files are still 8-channel, though, no matter what settings I choose. I tell it to output 2 channels, and only FL and FR are selected. Doesn't matter what I choose in the Downmix tab. Am I doing something wrong?

Meanwhile, the stock 'Downmix channels to stereo' DSP does what I want; the resulting files report as stereo, not 8ch, and they are smaller (by 2 or 3%), as expected.

This component doesn't handle 8 channels.

Functionality:

    * - (up|down)mix (to|from) 1-6 channels
    * - redirect bass to subwoofer channel (6-channels output mode only)
    * - delay rear channels by 1-40 ms (4 or 6-channels output mode only)
    * - surround sound effect (2->4 or 2->6 mode only)
    * - changing virtual width of a stereoimage
    * - etc...
