It's a kind of joke??? With foobar is imposible to set for listen without the weird ugly distortion, even lowing the level of the soundcard to minimum. I only can listen normaly with Resampler (SSRS) plugin on (Resampler settings: Target sample rate: 48000, Internal Precision 64bit). With this settings I can set my soundcard to maximum levels (wave and play control) with any distortion. . Note: for this test I disabled all DSP and Replay Gain except the Resampler (SSRS) plugin.Jan S. tell me if I made well the test, thanks in advance.
it sounded like it clips in the middle but there's no distortion.
what you can conclude from your test is that you should always use 48kHz.With my soundcard I need to use 48kHz too.btw.: did you need 64bit? isn't 32bits enough?
19.5 kHz ! At full power in headphones, I heard a 19.5 kHz sine ...and my hearing doesn't go past 16 kHz Edit : be careful, don't fry your tweeters with this ultrasonic sample.
I tried with DirectSound and I got nearly same results, only the alien sound was a little bit different, and I got a "humming" voice on the background when playing the sample.
Finally I have an example sample that I can give people to when they complain that RMAA IMD measurements are unfair (and 'theoretical') towards Creative products.
