Is there a possibility to add fade in/fade out to songs? Or is there a way to do this already?

I've tried combining this component with Fade In/Fade Out DSP, but sadly it doesn't work. foo_seek causes an "abrupt" switch to a different song.

I need a song to play for 90 seconds and then go into a 10 second fade out (trying to set up Foobar to be used for a competition ballroom dancing event)

Well, here is Github standpoint, and their Disclaimer:

Don´t want to give the wrong impression, I am not impressed by a lack of license at Github. This could mean the author is happy about the free update.
But in contrast, I wonder about the copyright notice in About Scheduler.
There might be some calculated ambiguity in there...   :) 

Hopefully @andrew_smolko comes along and sort out this mess.
General - (fb2k) / Re: File Operations -Move / Rename / Copy - stricmp Vs MusicBrains Picard

Also, MusicBrains Picard claims to use the foobar2000 format scripting syntax. But, when I use the following in Picard, it throws an error, unknown function: $stricmp.

$stricmp isn't a MusicBrainz scripting function

I think $rsearch could be used instead to achieve the string comparison. But I'd ask on the MusicBrainz community forum in the Picard section if you have no luck.

I can surely open an issue, but could I come up with one here?

What I think you want to RECOMMEND: that 5-bit Rice is avoided for 16 bits and below, am I right? In which case it should read
"use 5-bit Rice parameters only when encoding audio with a bit depth higher than 16 bits"
Thanks for noticing. That would indeed be an improvement.

And finally I wonder if escaped Rice is to be understood as Rice.
For each subframe with a predictor, a entropy coding method (i.e. rice coding method) is chosen once. An escape code can be used for every partition, so that is one level deeper.

By the way, using escape codes is handled one section later:
Audio Hardware / Re: Suggestions for a sub that would pair nicely with Edifier R1855DB speakers?
Last post by DVDdoug -
I don't have a recommendation.

IS it normal for the sub to cost more that the speakers themselves?
That's not unusual.   Bass is harder to reproduce than mid & highs.   It requires more power, and our ears are less sensitive to bass.     So it requires a bigger amplifier, a bigger driver, and usually a bigger cabinet and that all adds to the cost.  

If you want realistic bass that you can feel in your body you'll probably need at-least a 12-inch woofer, but there's more to speaker design than size.    If you can visit an audio-video store it would be worthwhile to get an idea of what's available and what you want.
