DSP chain serialization helper This helper is useful for sharing of chain presets between different Foobar2000 setups.Hold Shift to access its commands in the Playback menu: Files produced by the helper have fbcp extension.The component:
Sandrine: This component can store a DSP chain configuration in a separate file, whereas the DSP chain management in the foobar2000 preferences stores DSP chains in the foobar2000 configuration. This component can be used to transfer DSP chain configurations between different foobar2000 installations.
May I suggest to rename the "DSP chain serializer" menu entry to "DSP chain"? It's simpler and less technical.
Also the menu entries show as "Load..." and "Save as..." in the menu and "Load" and "Save" in the keyboard shortcuts. Is there a reason why you chose to present the names differently?
"Import..." and "Export..."
It would be a good idea to handle possible IO exceptions during file operations.
I'm not sure I understand the issue.After a correct installation of the component it works as expected (foobar2000 1.3.11 beta 4).Clicking Playback in the menu while pressing the Shift key I get what is shown in the screenshot.A short test including saving and loading different DSP settings gave no problems. The only drawback found so far is that the component doesn't remember where the DSP settings files (.fbcp) are saved; you'll have to find the location manually.(I should be evident that the component only saves DSP settings, nothing else.)
What an odd context menu to have.
... me being able to install my playback configuration for people because otherwise ...
