When i listen to music of any kind, the bass or bass kick will hit, but then the volume suddenly drops..... then turns back up...... i dont know why its doing this, but its bugging me so much... Could you please help? I just want my music to sound normal with no sudden volume drops.
Rather than a “major problem”, that simply suggests that its dynamics compressor is on; check whether this is the case and turn it off, if so.

Hi mudlord,
for the sake of SACD conversion inside of foobar I'm looking for a cut-off filter that suppresses everything above 40khz. Do you think the existing hi-shelf filter could be expanded that way or would you be willing to add a dedicated hi-frequency noise filter for that purpose?

Thanks in advance!

Shouldn't using a good re-sampler like SOX inherently apply what you a looking for?

I'm no expert, but a look at the spectrum showed me that SoX had alleviated the problem somewhat, but not remedied it. There is still a high frequency "cloud" on top of the spectrum after conversion, beginning between 35-40khz all the way upwards. Eliminating that useless (and not audible) information would give a better compression ratio in FLAC.

[..] suppresses everything above 40khz.

Resampling to 48 kHz (or 44.1 kHz) surely would.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

Why do people keep second guessing me? What I need I have stated above, what I don't need is "smart" suggestions.

I suppose the low pass filter doesn't go high enough for that?

No, the upper limit is 20khz, as is the case with practically all VST filters I quickly checked at the usual free resources today.

What do you want the upper limit to be (what would be most useful to you)?

With 40khz I'd be on the safe side, thanks

Mudlord, i've a two questions or feature requests. I couldn't imagine implementation difficulty for this, but it'd be fine if possible. All is inspired by Room designer of TB Isone VST plugin.
Firstly, i mean a virtual speaker distance simulation, a "simple" distance from the sound source. The problem is, with the current config options in Reverb effect i couldn't get a sound i want, mainly because of quite prominent post-echo, that can't be eliminated with damping or anything else, therefore i stopped using Reverb. I meant using of this feature together with headphones listening. BS2B is IMHO superb component by design (btw. pity it hasn't its place in FB2K component page, it is worth it), but it doesn't solve this. I'm not sure, if in principle, this feature shouldn't be made within BS2B itself, but maybe it is ok if done "standalone". My idea was it would be implemented in Reverb as an option. With that "i couldn't imagine" i meant, i don't know how is such effect achieved if done correctly (combination of phase shift, change in frequency spectrum, etc. ...)
The second request is related to room simulation capabilities in Reverb. As i wrote, there is a problem with minimizing post-echo. Room designer in TB Isone doesn't have dry/wet mix and room width config option, instead it implements reverb time (T60) together with room size and early reflections with diffusion and level, All these five options together with distance simulate final room effect, which is very natural.
Take these requests please, only as a possible ideas for a future, i think it is worth the effort.

Adding stuff like diffusion levels with air/room HPFC/LPFC (like most commercial reverbs), etc will take a fair bit of work to do.
Not sure if I will put it on the todo list, as to me with echo + reverb DSPs I kinda like the effect.

Sandrine: try 0.9.2

was going to add the new resampler in this, but will do that in 0.10 when its more stable.

The low pass filter works reasonably well, thanks. Is there a hard cut-off filter in there as well? I don't recognize some of the filter names.

Thats actually a good idea for the next version: A dynamic label describing each filter.

edit: Case did some testing with the Speex resampler I implemented in for the new version:
Code: [Select]
Resampling 44100 Hz WAV (total length: 49:16.320) to 11025 Hz

PPHS (Normal): 942.989x realtime
PPHS (Ultra): 178.291x realtime
SoX (Normal): 920.140x realtime
SoX (Best): 710.291x realtime
Speex (Q0): 1037.345x realtime
Speex (Q3 - VoIP): 540.334x realtime
Speex (Q4 - Default): 444.844x realtime
Speex (Q5 - Desktop): 381.972x realtime
Speex (Q10): 74.390x realtime


Not sure if I should just keep the resampler as a seperate component or keep it in foo_dsp_effect for 0.10. Still, choice is good I suppose....

What would be the possibility of seperating the various DSP's so I can pick and choose the ones I want to incorperate into foobar2000.  I only really use the "dynamics compressor" and sometimes the "reverb" or "echo".  It is probably from a "neat freak" disorder that hate to see DSP's I will never use crowding DSP Manager.    Anyway, I would appreciate it if you recompiled them seperately.  I would even appreciate it if you just recompiled the "compressor" as a stand-alone DSP.

Thanks

...then there will be no point to this component at all.

You are suggesting, that I rewrite everything as standalone components?

If you're looking for opinions ... to me resampling is not an effect (but a conversion) though I can see the relation to the filter section in foo_dsp_effect.
FWIW in my view: separate resampler plugin(s). Choice is good (for now I'm happy with the SOX based resampler). Anyway, feel free to implement anyway you like.

Everything's possible but it doesn't make much sense. They only questionable gain is that if you used a single effect only you'd probably save some 20 kB of memory  ... in every other case I only see disadvantages.

Agreed. the resampler can go in a seperate DSP.

Yeh, you get about 90kb already allocated (MSVC runtimes and whatnot), plus a few KB for resources, and then the rest for your code. Doesn't make much sense to split all the sub DSPs, since they would take more space than the one DSP.

Could you add a DC blocking filter like this please:

Code: [Select]
private n = 0;

inline filter(x) {
m = x + 0.999 * n;
y = m - n;
n = m;
return y;
}


0.999 could me made an adjustable parameter.

Hi, im new to the foobar2000 and i installed the foo_dsp_effect.dll, but i dont know how to use it! It appears on the component list but i dont see anywhere a place where i can turn on/off the effects. Can anybody help me with this?
