OK, the scheme in which these documents are filed is a bit strange, and it seems there's lots of duplication going on.
All files have been updated or at least checked on March of 2017, so they're not that old, or at least not that much out of date.
The specification documents are in .DOC (Microsoft Office 2003) format, out of all things - I can't even...
It's hard to say if and what was changed in the main .DOC files warranting an update. For all I know, it might've been no changes at all, etc.
In general, there doesn't seem to be much maintenance going on. I can only imagine, that the reason why the fixed point variant and the floating point variant are kept in individual repositories, is just so they can be filed individually. There's really no reason not having both variants in one repository and simply have compilation rules for each variant. At the same time, it's just a matter of a couple functions to which this difference is pertaining. So they could be kept next to each other without confusion, etc. Maybe making licensing easier was another reason.
The repository mentioned in jensend's post, is essentially the floating point variant, re-uploaded and modified for compilation with autotools. I'll take a look at it later, perhaps.
Porting code from MSVC to GCC I find atrociously annoying, especially if the IDE is >10 years old...
i see that adding the distortion isn't difficult at all, but how would one go about replicating the same "model" of distortion from one of his tube amps for example, how do you reverse engineer it? i guess harmonic distortion can be quite predictable, but from what i understand IMD may only enter audibility with some particular signals, and thus very individual to every amp.
Ok, I researched and dove into title formatting, which works in the Lyric Show 3 fields. Here's what I came up with:
I test if there's a "-" in the title, which the station puts inbetween the artist - songtitle in the %title% filed. When it contains the "-", I extract everything before it and return it, for the Artist parameter box. If not, I just return %artist%. Same principle for the Title config box, but then everything after "-".
- Artist : $ifgreater($strstr(%title%,-),0,$trim($left(%title%,$sub($strchr(%title%,-),1))),%artist%)
- Title : $ifgreater($strstr(%title%,-),0,$trim($right(%title%,$sub($len(%title%),$strchr(%title%,-)))),%title%)
I know it's not perfect for titles of songs containing a "-", but I cannot think of another way and accept those rare (?) cases.
Hope it's also helpful to someone else.
You might want to use a scope and monitor AC line current under demanding audio peaks to see if the amp ever spikes as high or higher than the startup cap-charge spike.
Ever actually do this? The results are usually very stunning for what they don't show.
I'm not aware that inrush current limiters are common in audio power amps.
The basic design of a naively designed simple linear power supply creates high inrush currents. Switchmode power supplies which are becoming more common can accomplish this with very little expense or trouble.
In a simple linear power supply the inrush current is limited by things that are always there to some degree, such as the maximum saturation current of the power transformer, the CD resistance of its windings, and the ESR of the rectifiers and filter caps.
As long as power amps are designed to satisfy imaginary requirements created by audiophile myths such as all channels driven power ratings, there is a strong exposure to excessive inrush currents.
One simple solution to this problem might be to use a more realistically sized power amp to drive the subwoofer.
BTW turnon thumps and inrush currents need not have any relationship to each other. They are separate problems that can easily have separate causes.

...But if your home theater speakers are matched or were sold as a set, you shouldn't need to adjust the balance/levels.I do not wish to hijack the OP's thread, but my query may also assist him. The above quote from DVDdoug stirred me to post here in this thread.
File change monitoring doesn't tend to work that well over remote shares. You can also right click on a media library path and force an update.
Didn't know about that context menu, so thanks.
OTOH I thought I'd read somewhere that foobar would be aware of file operations like renaming carried on by itself, so I thought maybe the library would keep track, rather than rely on the monitoring for a change.

If you just want to set/match the levels from the 5 speakers without tweaking equalization/frequency response, you don't need anything calibrated. All you need is something with a level meter that makes repeatable measurements. You might need to run a recording application on your laptop or phone to get a meter on the screen.
If it were only true. :-(
hi all, know this is kinda inactive. I don't even use windows but I still use foobar pretty much on account of this and other game related plugins. one thing I remember though was that gep used to have more advanced controls? like you used to be able to mute specific tracks in the song emulation. is that no longer a feature?In foobar menu, check View->GEP control. If the emulation format supports channel muting and stuff, that's where the controls are going to be.
Could not reproduce the crash. Crash report would be helpful (files *.dmp and *.txt). You can send them via PM or directly to fy[at]3dyd.com

it's be really handy for recording specific elements...
anyway, it's still great, so thanks kode54 for your hard work!
