The  free software vb-audio cable allows to use  7.1 with EQ-APO in any case. (e.g. also when your  soundcard only supports  stereo for headphone playback).  I strongly recommend it.
Peace is in my opinion the best gui for EQ-APO and the fastet way to switch between different rooms. I also recommend it.

If you don't like to install additional software then you can still use the usual EQ-APO config file configuration. 

The old pack was done for the convolver VST at a time where EQ-APO couldn't do  convolution. Hence, you can call this pack a superset of the old pack including a few additional rooms and separate headphone filters.

When you follow the links in the end of the pdf you will find information about the rooms and headphone filters. So far, I had no time to do a description. The pdf was written in very short time...

Ugh. There were a couple line-breaks which shouldn't have been there in the text I copied from the pdf that broke stuff...
It seems okay now. (It got louder, and a couple of channels might have been missing too. )

Hi, just found foobar 200 and this extension since I have been lacking visual to levels of volume.
Background: I am playing music often in figure skating and gymnastic teams contest. OK, playing also in hockey games, but those are always loud and high :) ... no need for visual there.

So I finally can see clear prepared playlist and visual if music is starting in low volume in start or so, BUT my problem is that Wave Seekbar is showing wave AFTER i start actual playing.  Therefore I am missing very start of levels.

Is there any way to set waveform to be displayed when track is selected in playlist?
Before track is actually started.

Sorry if this was answered in this thread already, but there was 84 pages to read ...

I have done that already some time ago.

There are some impulse responses included that can be used with EQ-APO.  I have written a short manual for the correct setup. That is also included.
Thanks, I had a look. But I'm confused by the need for additional software.

If I extract the files in the appropriate folder and use this (based on the help file) do I get what I supposed to, by commenting/uncommenting the convolution lines?

They sound about right to me. The sounds have a spatial effect it seems.

 # Copy the virtual speaker channels to Left & Right Headphone Channel
Copy: L=L0+L1+C1+SL0+SL1+RL0+RL1   R=R1+R0+C2+SR1+SR0+RR1+RR0

Can you explain the filenames? (I suppose the ones with NF are the near-field ones, but even this is a guess, and what's the 025-150 number) Which is the closest to the standardized room for 5.1-7.1 speaker setups?

Is this pack superset of the old pack, but this time with separate headphone filters? (I never understood why the files were headphone specific, now I'm starting to suspect.)

I get a pretty annoying crackle when I start or stop playing anything. In foobar, my video player, browser, whatever. It's already going on my nerves....
What might be wrong?

If both files are ripped by you and using the same ripping software/settings, there is nothing to worry about. The same song on different albums or compilations could be processed differently during mastering. For example, different dither types could be the answer of your question. Take a look at this nice article:

On the other hand, if one of the files is purchased online, you should pay attention to the potential watermark issue.,111198.0.html
