Ah so!
In Foobar chosed Speakers/Headphones (Realtek Audio) [exclusive] and it work!
Too bad it cannot play with my SB X-Fi Go Pro USB sound stick.
But the problem solved, thank you!
According to the specs on the Creative wesbite for that stick, it only supports "Up to 24-bit / 44.1 kHz."

You should be able to use it though if you create a selectable DSP profile for it in Foobar that just adds a resampler to change the output sample rate to 44.1kHz. for all source input rates.

As the author of Wavegain, I am a little puzzled by this. I use the program on a number of Windows 10 Pro x64 systems, none of which have MSCOMCTL.OCX installed and there is no dependency on this ActiveX control. The only dependency is kernel32.dll.

nemevilagbol:  OK, but you didn't reply to what output device you had selected for playback.  I use the default Wasapi Exclusive output to my default audio device:  Speakers/Headphones (Realtek Audio) [exclusive].  Windows 10 22H2 x64.

I don't own any 24bit/96kHz FLACs, but the samples on the site here play just fine on my Foobar 1.6.16 after downloading; do they for you?:  https://anadyomene-records.com/download.htm

Hello Tirias!

You don't want to use WAV. WAV is waste of space and tagging is not really good.
You need to use FLAC. FLAC is the most popular lossless format and has proper tagging support.

Then you will need to scan your files with foobar2000 and update file tags.
This will update tags only, so your original files are not going to be modified in any way!

Now you can adjust volume/loudness (preamp) in foobar's preferences.

Keep in mind that there are some players without ReplayGain support.
If that's the case then you will need to make "hard" adjustments to the files.
If you run into this issue, post here and we will explain to you how to solve this problem.
