3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: GSF decoder v3.0.8 sounds weird
Last post by kode54 -
No, as I said, the developer has real hardware to test. I just want to make sure it can be replicated on real hardware before we bother about it. Highly Advanced certainly wasn't hardware accurate, and if this is a bug, I'm sure Endrift would like to know.

General - (fb2k) / Re: Need data string for library stats...
Last post by jazzthieve -
I'm not too familiar with Wilb's script so i can't really comment on that. Foo_uie_library_tree will eat ram if you make a node which has every single file of your library in it if you're talking about libraries the size of a couple hundred thousands files. So if you want to list all your albums under a node, don't include the files in a subnode if you have a gigantic library and don't have ram to spare. Haven't experienced any bugs with foo_uie_library_tree, been using it for a decade.

Audio Hardware / Re: Connecting loudspeakers whatifs...
Last post by knutinh -
Loudspeakers will play just fine if you flip the polarity on both. The polarity from recording studio to playback is essentially like flipping a coin - you will find all kinds of microphones, processing gear, recorders, loudspeakers etc that flip phase, and users are unaffected as long as they dont try to combine them (in parallell) with other gear that does not flip phase.

There is a minority of listeners who claim to be sensitive to absolute phase. I am not aware of controlled experiments that have supported this claim.

There is usually a slight asymmetry in loudspeakers. Sufficient that subwoofer designers will commonly try to mount two low frequency drivers "back to back" in order to suppress such differences.

Support - (fb2k) / Re: NO benefits from using ASIO ?
Last post by hatrix -
I personally use ASIO with foobar because of the custom channel mappings. My audio interface has 4 outputs, and my setup involves my studio monitors on the main outs (1/2), and a sub on 3/4.

With the custom channel mappings, I can set outputs 1/2 to front L/R and then outputs 3/4 to LFE. I use this alongside the subwoofer DSP as a linear phase crossover with adjustable delay for matching phase.
