Seamless crossfade everytime, on manual or automatic title change
Hello
I saw that it was a recurrent problem to make foobar do acceptable crossfading between tracks. Indeed, there are two major extensions (Continuator and Gapless Crossfader) that would allow foobar to do it but in all default configurations it was hard to obtain a really seamless crossover between tracks, especially when manually changing tracks. It was a main reason to my to stay with 0.8.x foobar with it DirectSound 2.5 that allowed me to do that crossfading by setting the good cache value. But DirectSound 2.5 is no more supported in foobar 0.9.x nor in Vista.. So after a dozen of unsuccessful tries, I think I found a right extension/settings combination. Just see below:

First install VC8 sp1 runtime libraries in order to get the extension to work

Then install Gapless Crossfader http://acropolis.lokalen.org/wp-content/pl...wnload.php?id=1
(official site: http://acropolis.lokalen.org/2006/10/fooba...000-components)

If you have Continuator, disable it

Thanks. I did as you said-- and it seems to be working very well.

Edit: I listened to a couple of albums with the setting, and it works as mentioned.

I'm disappointed that this plugin causes my foobar to crash when a song is changed or stopped.

As well you should be.  You need to double check and make sure you have all the lib.dll files in your main installation directory.  That's more than likely your problem..

i installed that vc redistributable thingie and placed this libmmd.dll in the foobar directory. This placing prevented the message box at the start of foobar which called on a failure of something in the crossfader plugin.

foobar starts well with the plugin, i can configure the settings and all...but when i skip a song or stop it, foobar just closes.

i like crossfading, but i wish it was smarter, so it only crossfadesif shuffle mode is activated.

Yep, good idea, just like foo_rg_trn. Maybe ask acropolis? I already do use it this way, but because I control via girder...

$if($strcmp($substr(%cwb_playback_order%,1,7),Shuffle),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,true),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,false)
)

damn, thanks for posting this. ive been looking for something like this since the day i found out about replaygain 

$if($strcmp(%cwb_playback_order%,'Shuffle (tracks)'),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,true),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,false)
)


Hey Acropolis, thats exactly what i was looking for, but where should i put this? i can put it into panels UI's track or user globals and it enables/disables hte crossfader as expected. however anywhere i use %cwb_playback_order% it is replaced with 'true'%cwb_playback_order%.

I reckon you can put it into SCPL or track display panel...

$if($strcmp($substr(%cwb_playback_order%,1,7),Shuffle),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,true),
$gapless_crossfader(enable,false)
)

Ah yes, I forgot about the tagz support  BTW $strstr makes life easier. Is case sensitive.
Code: [Select]
$if($strstr(%cwb_playback_order%,Shuffle),

I am not sure if this is what you mean by "manually changing tracks", but here's what I'm looking for (can you tell me if this will accomplish what I need?)

Halfway through a song, if I switch to a different song, will it crossfade? It does this on my Rio Karma, and love it. Is there a plug in that will?

Thanks.

So I know this is an old thread, but I'm trying to get the gapless crossfader plugin working under Windows 7 (foobar2000 v.0.9.6.8).

First of all, the VC8 sp1 runtime libraries link doesn't work anymore.

The plugin itself seems to install fine, and foobar loads with no problems or error messages. I've tried to configure it based on the screen shots shown but my problem is that when I manually switch songs, there is a small gap before the crossfade into the new song. Otherwise it seems to work fine. I just need to get rid of that small gap.

Any ideas?

Same here - I only have a short gap as soon as I click on "next song".
After that gap the old song continues playing & fades out, the next song fades in nicely, without producing another gap.
But the gap which occurs right when clicking on "next song" is a bit annoying - nobody else has it or knows a solution?

Components:
foobar 09.6.9
gapless Crossfader 0341 (SSE)
skip Silence

I know this is occurring due to a limitation in the way foobar handles DSP plugins, but it'd be awesome if we could manually change and seek through tracks smoothly.

Well, looks like it's already planned to be included in the next version according to this thread:

Said next version was 1.1.11, so the feature for which you bumped this year-old thread already exists; moreover, it is entirely separate from the DSP pipeline.
