foobar2000 plays mono as mono on center channel.

Thanks Case :).  I guess that explains it- I don't even have a center speaker connected. I'm just listening with normal headphones btw.

Yeah I had already figured out that using the "mono to stereo" DSP cured the problem, but was unsure why it was necessary. I was trying to figure out why it couldn't just play mono correctly in the first place.

Still wondering if it's wise to assume that someone has a center channel connected, just because they want to play a mono file. I've got a about a million programs on my PC that can play a wav file, and all other 999999 play it without any fuss.

Hi,

Feature request for the find release window: would it be possible to replace the Artist textbox with an editable combobox that would display the last few artists that have been typed in?
This would help when encoding a full discography.

Thanks

I have one of those geeky programmable keyboard running opensource firmware called QMK which allow all sorts of fancy keys.
So to avoid windows and other software jacking my media key. I use F13 - F24 instead since they're unlikely hard-coded to anything on any system or software.

Problem is foobar don't know what key they are... They work perfectly fine though. Just not as pretty-looking as other key.
Would love to see a tweak in the future. :)
(sorry if this belong in general forum)

I have been using the following definitions:

Code: [Select]
COLOR_SCROLLBAR           0
COLOR_BACKGROUND          1
COLOR_ACTIVECAPTION       2
COLOR_INACTIVECAPTION     3
COLOR_MENU                4
COLOR_WINDOW              5
COLOR_WINDOWFRAME         6
COLOR_MENUTEXT            7
COLOR_WINDOWTEXT          8
COLOR_CAPTIONTEXT         9
COLOR_ACTIVEBORDER        10
COLOR_INACTIVEBORDER      11
COLOR_APPWORKSPACE        12
COLOR_HIGHLIGHT           13
CLOR_HIGHLIGHTTEXT        14
COLOR_BTNFACE             15
COLOR_BTNSHADOW           16
COLOR_GRAYTEXT            17
COLOR_BTNTEXT             18
COLOR_INACTIVECAPTIONTEXT 19
COLOR_BTNHIGHLIGHT        20

I believe the toolbars use the COLOR_BTNFACE value.


No, i tried all that colors and even more, i cant get color for toolbar background.

I need this background color (so it should match OS, if its win 7 then it's blue if win 10 white) :

Support - (fb2k) / Mono Playback Volume is very low (about -10dB)
Last post by uart -
I have a wav file (16 bit stereo @ 32 kHz rate) from a very old vinyl recording.  As the original record was only mono, I down mixed it to mono, and was surprised that Foobar2000 does not play the file correctly after this change.

I've checked the file in a wav editor and the levels are correct. All other audio applications that I've tested play the mono file at the correct volume. Foobar2000 however plays the mono file at a greatly reduced volume, approx -10dB (or perhaps even less).

There is no replay gain applied to either track (neither original stereo nor down sampled mono), no DSPs are selected, and I've tried all applicable output devices (KS, DS etc) with no change.

Just wondering if this is a known bug?

Foobar version is 1.3.14. BTW

I think it's not bugged, and the files are not even locked since I can rename, edit and delete them when syncing and after syncing complete. They're treated as "locked" only in Foobar2000.
Update: Also found this, once a file is treated as locked in Foobar2000, it will alway be treated as locked unless Foobar2000 is restarted.
