How can I get this working in Foobar2000 1.0.3?

Raxxion, did you read the post above yours? The right thread for your question is here and your answer you can find in the component's Wiki.
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.

I think he was looking for a Default UI version of this. Not something that requires Columns UI to work.

I was hoping somebody could help me out with a problem with this component

It's been working great for some time now, until recently. It appears to pause every second or so, as if it's lagging.

I've tried increasing it's refresh rate from 5ms up to 20 or 30ms, but it still happens. Thinking it was a CPU issue, I've disabled all DSPs I have active, disabled replay gain, tried kernel streaming vs regular output, switched between 16bit and 24 bit playback, increased the buffer. No change. foobar uses about 15% cpu constantly while playing, I don't know if that's high or not (I have an i5 processor). I've even tried playing songs from different hard drives thinking it was a disk reading issue, but no change there either.

I am beginning to think it's a bug with the new version of foobar, since I updated it recently... but I am wondering if anyone else has any tips I could try.

I just installed a new video card today, 5870 -> R9 280.  I never had this issue before until this new video card. I have tried several different drivers and just about everything I can think of.  The smaller the window and less bars there is, the less laggy it is.  It uses 25% constant CPU and the GPU is 100% usage and still laggy.  I'm wondering if it has something to do with the new architecture of the GPU, since the 5870 is from ~2010 when the last update for this component was.  I switched to the musical spectrum that was linked above this post and have absolutely no issues with that. Just wish it showed the Hz instead notes, but im not complaining, I can display a lot more Hz levels on this new component.  Just wish I could figure out the peakmeter spectrum issue, doubt that will happens since its not maintained anymore.

I confirm that current version: 0.2.0.0 beta is incompatible with newer GPUs. I'm using Radeon HD7750 and Peakmeter spectrum is very laggy. Peakmeter spectrum raises GPU usage to 99% (as shown in AMD Catalyst Control Center)



Once you minimize foobar2000 or close the Peakmeter spectrum plugin, GPU usage lowers to normal.

It's nice that we have Musical Spectrum plugin as a great alternative:

Just as a note, this is the wrong forum.

You might be seeing this on your AMD card, but on my nVidia GTX 650 Ti on Windows 8.1 x64 I don't see this issue. You also have to remember this plugin hasn't been updated since 2008!
