I am particularly interested in why the 2 setting and auto setting sound different when I am only using 2 channel stereo recordings.
I have this vst plugin working with foobar and TB Isone for use with headphones. It works great for me but I have a question about the channel selection that appears in the upper left corner of the TB Isone window when I use this plugin. I am only using the one dsp. In the upper left corner it lets me choose 1,2 or auto setting for channels. If I choose 1 it is obviously limiting things to something like mono. If I choose 2 it sounds clearly like two channels, but if I choose auto the sound stage expands in width and depth and opens considerably?
It seems that to get a VST's GUI up I have to do File->Preferences->DSP Manager, click on the plug and select "Configure Selected". At that point, however, the DSP Manager becomes inactive and immobile (which disallows player interraction if it opens over the player and you don't yet know to move it before opening the plug.) Is there a way to go back to the player with only the VST GUI active so that I can interact with it while using the player and not have the DSP Manager window cluttering things up or obscuring the player?Even better, is there a way to bring up the VST GUI without all the rigamarole through menus and tabs to get there. As it is the human factors of using VST plugins are horrible and not for the naive. I understand the rigamarole for installation, but not for subsequent use.I'd like to create an installable package of Foobar2000 with foo_vst and the VST plug I'm developing already included for users to evaluate but they are unlikely to understand or want to know anything about the rigamarole. If this plug could add an item to Foobar2000's menu that says "VST" which presents a list of those installed and enabled that a user could just open and select the plugin of interest to bring up its GUI that would be an awesome usability enhancement.

QuoteYou mean: "anyone with money" ... Price: 59 EUR or $79 (excl. VATYeah, not all vst are free. But frankly I don't see why a foobar user would be interested by a "8 input/output chainer".I find at least a modular vst host more interesting, you can do all kind of complicated mixing , with different dsp.The console art teknika works well inside foobar with the vst adapter.But most people are just interested to run an eq.

Only workaround is to never use text entry, just use the knobs instead.
