Wow! Can't wait to leave hospital to test it :-)

The elements are fixed size, if that's a problem. Don't know if its worth the effort making them scalable like the official eq element is.

But for me, works well enough. Ended up completely rewriting the pitch/tempo stuff too to not be hacky, and the reverb is finally fixed to now properly scale coefficients to the sample rate. (which was a design flaw in Freeverb itself)

To me, foo_dsp_effect is pretty much complete. I am working on another DSP component array, but this time uses the DirectX DMOs built into the operating system (so, won't work on Wine). Mainly interested in the complex reverb DSP unit Microsoft made/commissioned with it, as well as some extra effects like distortion/gargle.

DirectX DMO effects will work on Wine, if you regsvr32 msdmo.dll from a Windows XP installation instead of the Wine stub dll.

Interesting. Its curious how OpenMPT has complete DMO emulation for non Windows systems, while Wine people refuse to add such functionality.

I found a bug with "Dynamics Compressor" (foo_dsp_dynamics) when used with the converter.
If I convert a bunch of long tracks (an audiobook) in parallel, some tracks don't get the DSP processing applied. For example just now I converted 10 tracks and 3 of those were converted as if there was no DSP.

I can work around this by limiting the converter to one thread (the default is 4 on my PC).

This happens in both in the current 1.3 stable foobar and in the latest 1.4 beta, with the new standalone foo_dsp_dynamics plugin.
I also tried with another effect (phaser from the effects bundle) and there was no such problem.


EDIT: also, it seems the plugin doesn't work on 24kHz files at all, that's a bit of a shame. I'm using it to boost the volume of some audiobooks, that's how I noticed.
EDIT2: it also just seems to stop working occasionally when converting single 44.1kHz files, maybe caused by previous 24kHz playback...

Seems then I need to make the dynamics compressor fully instance safe.

Thx for your work! Is it possible to add more accurately slider for tempo shifter? As a DJ I am often compare two songs and set one master tempo to them. For example for change tempo from 124 to 126 I need shift tempo by ~1.62%.

@Brand

Can you try the attached file? if it works ill make it official. I'll have to modify Garf's algorithm a bit to make it work on more than 2 channels. And yeh, the algorithm is limited to 16kbps, a max of stereo channels and 50000hz as a maximum sample rate, though.

@mdr

Should be uploaded with the updates now.

Hey man, ive encountered a problem with the DSP menu not showing up in the view menu after updating the foo_dsp_effect  component from 0.30.1 to 0.30.2. I used to like that menu so i could change playback shift rate on the fly if i wanted to without having to go through a bunch of menus. Is there any way i could get this back?
Thanks in advance.

it should show up, it needs the latest foobar2000 alpha.

I tried the new version of Dynamics and it crashes foobar pretty much as soon as I load it for playback or when I start the conversion, with any file I tried.
Here's the crash report:

For installing it I just replaced the dll, I hope that's the proper way to do it.


50000hz as a maximum sample rate
So it should work with 24kHz files? Because it doesn't. It does with 44.1kHz, though.

Sent you a PM.

I rather builds from now on be sent in private since I don't want bug reports polluting the crash DB.

@SynthDNB: yes it needs features from 1.4 alpha. Most specifically beta 6/7 and upwards.

Thanks. No crashes with this one and so far the multi-thread conversions worked fine.

Thanks, I'll make it official then.

Regarding foo_dsp_effect and UI elements:
- personally I would prefer to have Tempo, Pitch and Playback Rate as separate UI elements, each with as low height as possible. That would allow for example for their horizontal alignment or simply choosing only the one that I use the most to be always visible.
- all effects seem to use the same size for UI element. It causes waste of UI space. In my opinion each element should have as low height as possible. This problem could be also solved with usage of scalable UI elements...

1) Makes sense. I'll think about it.
2) This one I'll have to mess with APIs like DeferWindowsPos, which I am not really familiar with, but I guess that's now important, like with the default equalizer Peter made, Hence why they have a static size. I can optimize the sizes to be more compact though, if you want.

I would opt for optimized sizes of UI elements. Bu especially - for splitting Tempo, Pitch and PRS :)

Hey al!!

Big dummy here who has no idea how any of this stuff really works.

I play a space flight simulator game called Elite: Dangerous . I generally listen to my own music while I play. I'm trying to set up playback so that the music sounds as if it was coming from a speaker system within the cockpit of a ship, basically as if the sound was in an actual physical space, not pristine as if it was coming out of headphones (which I believe is what the "reverb" effect intends to replicate, correct?).

Another player recommended I give Foobar2000 with the Effect DSP plugin a shot. The plugin seems to be exactly what I'm looking for but I'm having trouble fine tuning the settings to achieve the desired effect. The settings this user provided sound a bit too much like I'm hearing the music playing from the inside of a car with all the doors shut, while I'm standing outside.



I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to provide alternate settings and/or additional "Available DSPs" that might help to achieve the desired effect?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

If you can have access to a good microphone for a while, and can reproduce that sound alteration in real life, then it might be worthwhile to try to record an impulse response — for example, play a loud flat-frequency click sound inside your car, with the doors shut only so much, and record it at the point where it sounds like you want, then remove excess parts from the recording and use it as an impulse for the Convolver effect. 
It's a bit involved but with a good microphone you can get to a really good approximation of a real life environment.

Some info on Wikipedia about the method: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convolution_reverb

Yep, the current reverb implementation in there sucks atm.

It doesn't handle things like early reflections as well as other things. I seen some other algorithms though which are much more robust than the one in there currently.

In the meantime, I would indeed use proper convolution, with decent response files.

Maybe kode's reverb? The one which is based on PSX reverb?

Re: foo_dsp_effect

Reply #322
Mine's based on a console hardware reverb, and if you want the "faithful" hardware mode, it downsamples the input to the reverb system, and upsamples the output before adding it to the dry signal. It usually does sound good, but it's probably somewhat more process expensive than a native reverb filter. The presets were stolen from the emulator called "pSX", which stole them from the PlayStation SDK, because pSX doesn't emulate the actual hardware reverb unit, it just matches known reverb presets and simulates them with a higher level reverb function. The developer also swore the hardware used linear interpolation to resample, and wouldn't listen to evidence to the contrary. Now his project is dead anyway.

Hi, I just wanted to pop in and mention that this component works just fine on foobar v1.3.16. Not sure if you wanted to update the page on the main site or not. That's all, have a nice day :)

Hi! It appears that the newer Dynamics Compressor is still being developed here. Thanks!  I'm using the last one Garf came up with when I searched for it. I have a general idea of what Compressors do, but some of his terminology I'm not certain of.  I also don't know that it's working right.

My test track is Jethro Tull's Locomotive Breath which has the low volume piano bit at the beginning before the hit into major part of the song.  On vlevel and R128 Compressor the piano sounds as loud as the main song. Both of these plug-ins have "wandering volume" where the track will get even, then dip slightly and come back up, or even stay slightly below the loud part for good period of time.

So I thought I would try a compressor to get better evenness in the sound. On Dynamics Compressor the piano is still quiet and the loud part is still loud. Do you think this is working? Sorry for the confusion.
