  • Type to search - i.e. start typing name of playlist to jump to it
2 questions for you to try to understand the logic you are after.
- what you type would be the beginning of the playlist name (and not char within the playlist name) ?
- if a folder is closed, is that part of the search ? (in case that means the folder would open up)

Converter in foobar v2.0 have 3 issues:

1. I have playlist with 32bit int files in wav or flac. If i want to export it to 32bit int wav without bitdepth change, just format conversion, there is no such option. Only 32bit, but it's floating. So the bits in files will be changed. Maybe it's wise to add such an option to choose 32bit or 32bit-float?
2. Even if i press convert, converter doesn't remind of lossy bits operation. I checked foobar v1.6.16, it does remind
3. After conversion there is annoying window 'Converter output'. And there is no option to disable it

I tried a fresh installation, and it didn't have the bug until I also installed and added foo_dsp_stereoconv and Resampler (SRC).

To reproduce the bug:

1. Install foobar2000 beta 28 portable (or really any version even as far back as 1.6.10. I've only tried with portable.)

2. Install these components
Stereo Convolver (linked) (MathAudio Headphone EQ seems to work as well, but I haven't tested it as thoroughly)
Resampler SRC:

3. Add the two DSPs in order (screenshot included)
Stereo Convolver
Resampler (SRC)

4. Configure Resampler (SRC) with target "Upsample 4x" and Mode "Best Sinc Interpolator". Stereo Convolver can use the default settings and still reproduce the bug, though I normally use different impulses.
*note - My test tracks were both 44100Hz 16-bit and very loud (almost reaching -0dB)

5. Turn On "Enable smooth seeking, pause and volume changes" (I use 50ms for all except fade in on manual track change, but it doesn't seem to matter)

6. Manually change between tracks.

The bug doesn't happen on every manual track change, but it is fairly frequent, and it occurs much more often - almost every time - when more DSPs are added. I realize this is pretty specific and these components are not yours (Peter), but it is a real setup I use, and it still only causes the bug when smooth seeking is enabled. Thank you for reading.

More testing. The bug is present even in beta 20. Same rules apply - turning off "Enable smooth seeking, pause and volume changes" will make it stop, or removing the identified DSPs.
One more test for now. The bug is there even in v1.6.10. I guess it's not a new bug, but a bad interaction between the identified DSPs and smooth seeking.

*Final edit*
I believe my confusion came from the audio devices with "DEFAULT" at the beginning automatically disabling smooth seeking, which prevented the bug in some cases.

Thank you.

*Even more final edit*
On a whim, I decided to also test with 0ms for both fade in and fade out on manual track change, and also 50ms for both. The bug persists in both cases.

I just verified that v2.0 beta 24 doesn't exhibit this behavior. I am using 32-bit Portable, if that matters.
Thanks, looking into it, though I can't recreate it so far.

What about beta 25 and 26?

What exact audio device are you using?
ASIO etc perhaps?

Sorry for the delay. Difficult days. Anyway...
Same settings were used in all cases. I verified that the behavior only happens with "Enable smooth seeking, pause and volume changes" on (50ms for all except 0ms for fade in on manual track change) in conjunction with certain DSPs (Stereo Convolver and/or MathAudio Headphone EQ will each cause the bug). Audio devices were a Schiit Modius in exclusive mode 24-bit and also my onboard realtek device non-exclusive. Both devices exhibited the behavior. If you want, I can 7z archive my foobar portable install and send it to you with sample tracks which tend to make the bug very audible.

Just did some more tests. Checked and made sure some more settings were the same.
Behavior is there in 24, 25, 26, 27, and 28.
I guess that means I need to test with older versions.

Just a note to say that this original image falls into the misconception that one must use a "relay server" (created by the -r switch) to be able to record the audible stream locally, this is NOT the case.  The following Run Services "Path" box code continues to work fine to record streams being played in Foobar v2 x64 as well as legacy versions:
Code: [Select]
"C:\Streamripper\streamripper.exe" %path% -z -t -u FreeAmp/2.x -d C:\Streams
Alter local paths to fit yours.  The complete options list (more complete than most sources) exists in the "README" from the Streamripper installation, which is attached.
