Since foobar 1.0 won't even load this I'm gonna upgrade foobar to 0.9.6.9  ....

it´s called "downgrade".

I wish this was rebuilt with Direct2D and with the foobar2000 1.0 SDK (Default UI baby!)

I want "ignore Replaygain" option.
I want to see real peak of audio file with play in apply replaygain.
Is it can?

Any way to use this under the default UI? Hopefully with no dockable panels *crosses fingers*

(version 0.2.0.0 beta) on foobar 1.0.1 beta 2 works perfect.

Thanks for creating the plugin, it works great.
Although, I want to ask you to help me achieve 2 additional functionalities, it should be easy.

I am using Columns UI and Panel Stack Splitter to place this spectrum analyzer. And here comes the problem - I want to see all the frequencies on my spectrum analyzer, but there is no setting making it fill entirely the space that I created for it with Panel Stack Splitter. Here is my screen:

link

On the left, the settings of spectrum analyzer are: size: 1, spacing: 1. On the right: size: 2, spacing: 1. (neither of them 'fits'). Changing the size of the panel in Panel Stack Splitter configuration cuts some parts of the spectrum analyzer and I, instead of it, want to fit both of my spectrum analyzers between the end of my brushed-metal graphics and the border of the window. How to do that? (should be possible to scale it, because e.g. scaling entire window scales spectrum analyzer)

The other question is probably simpler: I want to reverse displayed frequencies order on one of my spectrum analyzers so that I achieve mirror effect. How?

Regards and thanks in advance,
Krzyszcz

Apparently at least scaling problem turned out to be too hard.
But maybe someone is able to provide solution just to the second problem: the mirror effect. I don't use captions in my spectrum analyzer, so it would be great for me to get a solution either with reversed frequencies order or just achieved by reversing animation (maybe WSH panel can simply handle this? I mean - show the pictures generated by the spectrum analyzer plugin, but reversed like in a mirror (reflection symmetry))

My request may seem ridiculous to you, but who actually uses spectrum analyzer as a source of information about frequencies... It's just a decorative visualization... You can look on my screen (post above), imagine that spectrum analyzers fit their spaces and you will be able to see that the mirror effect performed on one of them is a good idea.

I cant even find how to enable this addon....

  1. Extract the downloaded archive and place foo_uie_vis_peakmeter_spectrum.dll in your foobar2000 "components" folder (normally located at %ProgramFiles%\foobar2000\components\).
  2. Start foobar2000.
  3. Open up File/Preferences, navigate to Display -> Columns UI, and select the Layout tab.
  4. Right-click on a splitter and select Insert Panel -> Visualisations -> Peakmeter Spectrum
  5. Click Apply to make the panel appear.

Someone explain to me where the Columns UI is please. I open the file menu, click preferences, click display and dont see anything in there called column UI.

Columns UI is an alternative user interface which has to be downloaded separately.

If someone will ever be  intrested - the solution to my problem turned out to be UIE Vis Channel Spectrum Plugin.

I noticed that the lowest frequency displayed is 28 Hz.  Is it possible to make this display lower frequencies?  I'm often curious as to how much info a given track has down there.  I also noticed the default foobar spectrum visualization displays only down to 50 Hz.  Is there some technical reason for not displaying the lower frequencies?

alright, why are you guys ignoring requests for the Default User Interface / DUI ???
Not everyone wants to use CUI.

So is there a chance or is there any comparable plugin for DUI that does the same job?

pleeeeeze...

Dunno why specifically you want this component, what kind of functionality you are seeking, but you might be able to use Shpeck with some Winamp's visualization plugin like here.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

Can I get winamp's plugins without installing the application?

Winamp plugins installers are freely downloadable separately and they usually just want you to point them to a directory with some Winamp.exe file inside. Can be an empty renamed text file or anything.

Hi foo_pm,

your plugin works great. i like the good flexiblity in the settings. i initially installed it to increase the hertz-spectrum. foobar just offers 50hz out of the box. your plugin offers 28hz which is great for my needs. but is it possibly to increase the range even more downwards?

The creator of this component has not come back to this component/topic/thread since 2008 !!

I know this is not a technical or critiquing response (and thereby not terribly helpful), but this component is absolutely amazing.  Functions well - and I say this as someone who greatly appreciates audio recording and playback technologies, but isn't obsessed enough to complain about slight band issues and windows and what have you.

Thank you for all of your hard work, and I'll definitely recommend this to anyone that I start on foobar2000.

EDIT: Quick question, is there any way to automatically compensate the overall signal perceived by this component?  For example, where foobar2000 is putting out -10dB, you could apply a +3 pad so that the component would display -7dB?

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.
