Good day.
Need help with the plugin discogs_foo.

1). You need to put the style of music for the release.
 If the release indicates for example two styles, then in the field of the tag "STYLES" it is written like this:
New Wave; Synth-pop
But in the STYLE field of the version tag, this semicolon (";") is perceived as a carry (I do not know how to articulate exactly) and accordingly the style is prescribed in a file in several different fields, like so:
TXXX (Description: STYLE): New Wave
TXXX (Description: STYLE): Synth-pop
and in the program I need, so the style is not displayed, but if you put the styles through commas, everything normal is displayed.
actually the question is: a script is needed so that if there are 2 or more styles indicated in the release (on the release page), then they would be written in one line, separated by a comma (or via /), and not a semicolon in different fields of the tag.

Prompt please the syntax. !

2). What variant of settings for recording tags in Foobar is better to choose so that there are less problems when displaying tags in different programs (players, cataloguers, etc.) especially if you use little used and rare fields in the tags of music files?

P.S . The old version of the GUI plug-in with a choice of downloadable fields and search settings was more convenient, maybe over time?

Thank You
I have 2 entries I added and enabled from the list.
Adaptive Multi-Rate for *.AMR and WebM Audio for *.WEBA, both with Show codec names from FFmpeg unchecked.
When playing *.AMR, it display AMR_NB but when playing *.WEBA, it display WebM Audio. So it seems to me that foobar2000 doesn't display codec name correctly. With Show codec names from FFmpeg checked, no changes.

I don't get exactly what you mean :)

But wouldn't it be possible to somehow retain the view of what was properly decoded / imaged before "runtime_error" occurred? I think this is the problem, as I can see that waveform is generated (progressively) and then at ca 95% it disappears, like decoded/calculated data were discarded... I would accept waveform being not complete - especially if some small popup with message about problem was displayed. What is funny - this happens (but without popup) for example for any incomplete download if it is attempted to be played by mistake. Waveform seekbar generates garbled waveform (truncated, contiguous but concatenated from several chunks that come from various places of file). I think that for the files from the package (and any other that may have similar problem) it would be OK to apply the same behavior as for incomplete dowloads.

Peak meter panel

foo_vis_vumeter.dll is required
I would like to know what is left on computer after uninstalling, what does the program modify and leaves?

First of all, if you can upload here your config located at C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\DeskbandControls\
that would help me to diagnose whats wrong. Also, make sure you are using the latest version.

Instructions on how to uninstall deskband are in !readme.txt located at C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\user-components\foo_deskband_controls\
After you execute uninstall.cmd and remove foobar plugin nothing remains in the system.

This pair of headphones has an impedance of 2k ohms but still they will be driven by my DAP?
I'd say yes.    But, they may not go as loud as some lower impedance headphones.

Loudness is related to power, but it's also related to efficiency.     (You usually don't get an efficiency spec, but you do usually get a sensitivity spec, referenced to Volts or milliwatts).   You get more power with lower impedance and that usually means more loudness, but not always.

The HD 800 is expensive and it you're spending that much money for a headphone you should probably listen first, and the store should allow you to plug-in your DAP if you're spending that much money.
Right, so it is not only safe but also worth to try.

I must admit I am confused. I read a lot that headphones such as sennheiser HD800 are not suitable for DAPS like mine due to their high impedance (300 ohms).

That headphone measures as per below:
Volts RMS required to reach 90dB SPL: 0.242 Vrms
Impedance @ 1kHz: 361 Ohms
Power Needed for 90d BSPL 0.16 mW

So I have been focusing on lower impedance headphones (less that 70 ohms).

This pair of headphones has an impedance of 2k ohms but still they will be driven by my DAP? Did I misread your reply?

Volts RMS required to reach 90dB SPL: 0.405 Vrms

Your player does double that, so 90+6=96 dB.

You can't damage a player using a small load (high impedance). It's the same as running with no headphones plugged in (infinite impedance).
