Beta version is now final. Details in previous post.

Because of the breaking changes, v1.2.4 will remain available on the official components site and on the github releases page.

Certainly EQ can flatten frequency response.     But...   Don't blindly trust the curves (especially at the highest frequencies) and make sure the results are "natural" sounding.

Can I use some global EQ (i.e. separate from the settings in the mix) to make it emulate something more neutral like studio monitors?
A good pair of headphones is probably "better" (flatter) than a pair of monitors, especially if the room isn't acoustically treated and measured/equalized.   ;)   Except with headphones, you don't "feel" deep-strong bass in your body like you do with speakers/monitors (assuming the monitors/subwoofer are capable of that).

As those of you who have followed this column for any length of time can attest, headphone mixing is one of the big no-no's around these parts.  In our humble opinion, headphone mixes do not translate well in the real world, period, end of story.  Other than checking for balance issues and the occasional hunting down of little details, they are tools best left for the tracking process.

(Maybe the developer could add a switch to the fine component, that -when f2k is closed- hides the DeskBand Controls in the taskbar. (you can also hide it manually, but we are all lazy...)
But its already present - See settings / foobar2000 plugin / Hide if foobar2000 is not running.
U're right :-) Great.

Another question about profiles:

When I load a profile, say "test1" and then close the settings and open it again, the profile <new profile> is shown.
Thats irritating.
Think of a user which has 4 presets and boots the computer after a long period. How would he know, whats the name of the actual loaded profile is? It would be userfriendlier if the name of the loded profile would be visible in the pulldown menu after starting the settings-windows.

Struck a problem with this app. It used to work fine but now reports "??" for every lossless file I check, rather than OK or Fail.
I've since reinstalled it) but no improvement.  Anyone else had this/fixed the problem?

Or perhaps there's some other program I could try?

Thanks.

It appears to start dipping at 2k and then exhibits a bump at 9k.

Can I use some global EQ (i.e. separate from the settings in the mix) to make it emulate something more neutral like studio monitors?

Since then, are those "popclicks" still there with no delay option ?
Actually, I'm routinely using it for encoding video soundtrack. Don't use it for music.

Alright. Actually i'm also referring to this. So is it safe if I use nodelay for video soundtrack right now or is it better if I take care of the delay manually?

Ah, yes, I did do that at least a few times in its lifetime.
