BTW, I've never seen so many types of crossovers applied to audio anywhere. I'm looking them up, to find out what their backgrounds are. I'm curious about what made you create this great application, and what your background is. A mathematician?
No, i`m not mathematician. Say more: i have not subwoofer even:) Programming, graphics, DSP and mathematics is my hobbies. I have some crazy ideas of non-standard audio processing, and this filters - one of them. My other interests - multichannel stereo splitting using fft, triple and quadro (ancient versions).

I downsample high resolution audio to 48 kHz and always normalize by scanning the resampled whole disc image for peak level. Sometimes I perform other edits before dowsampling, such as declipping or moving the track cues slightly. I've never encountered any music downloads with positive peak levels, although they may occur during my processing. It could be a good way to preserve fidelity compared to hard clipping, which commonly occurs today.
The bitrate of "hi-rez" is unreasonable even when half of the bandwith is practically silent. While disk space is plentiful today, transferring the large files over network to another computer still takes noticeably longer. I also don't like seeing albums of equal value occupy wildly dissimilar space. I considered WavPack Lossy, as an alternative form of bit reduction, but at high rate it consumes too much CPU, slowing down replaygain scanning or causing stuttering when starting playback while playing a game, for example.
I keep a few examples or hi-res albums on hand for experiments.

I can't discern 96kbps aac from 128, 192 and even 256. They all sound the same. What should I be looking to do when converting the library. What quality do you guys have your songs in??

I hadn't found this subforum, but it seems I should have posted here instead of in the general 3rd party plugins. My question may have nothing to do with foo_vst and more with how things are displayed. Regardless, when I launch a VST plugin they always launch at the upper left corner, covering the playback functions of the Foobar interface. Can the launch location in the interface be changed?
