I was hoping somebody could help me out with a problem with this componentIt'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 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:Musical Spectrum
