Possible to control foobar through vb6?

I'm making a little program in vb6 (i know it's not the best language) and am struggling to implement features to change volume and song position.  I currently can change songs/stop/play and simple stuff like that.  Is there a way I can send messages to the command line to control foobar, or a better way to remotely control it?

Is it possible to communicate to fb2k via DDE?

I've never used DDE so i'm not sure.  I looked through SDK but got confused pretty quickly... I've read that you can control foobar through the command line, how extensively can it be controlled (more specifically, can it change volume/song position).  If so, then all I would need to do is find a way to send text to the command line.

I can't think of a non hacky way of controlling fb from vb, but maybe just map some shortcuts and do a sendkeys from vb? It'll be hard to get input back though.

There is foo_comserver from foosion. I'm pretty sure he released it at least in the foobar2000 IRC channel, but I can't find it anywhere in the forum. Let's see what he has to say...

After messing around, I think i'm just going to use commandlines... so
"{foobar.exe}" "/command:Playback/Seek ahead by 1 minute" - to seek ahead 1 minute.

Is this a bad way to approach the issue? I'll check out the other mentioned stuff.
