So this is the place then?

General - (fb2k) / Re: Anyone Have a Layout To Share?
Last post by Porcus -
but now Foobar won't even start

This is a separate issue - or non-issue, depending.  Question: would it appear to you that fb2k "won't even start" if there is an Information window popping up? I did not have to dismiss it to start playing, but maybe you rely on some input method. 
The window said, quote
The layout was loaded partially because the following required components could not be found: "Musical Spectrum", "JScript Panel", "Quicksearch"
unquote - but for using fb2k, those UI elements just appeared empty.
FWIW, I have JScript Panel v1.2.4 in my installed "everyday use" foobar2000.

I tried to test it, but so far did not succeed. I have installed the required components and loaded your theme, but now Foobar won't even start. I suspect it's because of foo_jscript_panel. Which version of the component do you use?

I could remove stuff for you, but it looks like you have found something that really looks neat. Apologies for asking, but ... do you know what VU meters look like? I'd be happy to boost your placebo by telling you that they do look cool on the screenshot (one for each channel, mirror-imaged) - though I cannot spend so much space on visuals myself.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: OpenMPT Module Decoder
Last post by deus-ex -
Just checked the update v0.4.0-pre.3+2, which now sports its own configuration dialog, like foo_dumb.

A binary comparison of the output of v0.4.0-pre.3+1 (interpolation = 1) with v0.4.0-pre.3+2 (interpolation = 0) provides bit-identical results. Turns out the interpolation term "nearest" was just a little misleading, IMHO "none" is definitely the better choice.

Thank you very much for your swift response. (virtual hat off)

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / FooBar2000 BPM Compatibility
Last post by acvegas -
1. Once the FooBar2000 BPM is installed within the actual music file; is it automatically recognized within most DJ Music editing software programs including hardware units such as the Denon MCX8000 unit and the Pioneer XDJ-RX2 unit?

2. When I try to copy and paste from FooBar2000 (text file) to print out …. everything is copied except the BPM’s (see example below).  Is this a minor bug? How can I also get FooBar2000 the BPM’s along with everything else I am trying to copy?
Example: Backstreet Boys - [Backstreet Boys #04] Everybody (Backstreet's Back) - Extended Version

Hi,

Just tried foo_dsp_pregap. Same issue occurs.

General Audio / Re: Advice on transformer hum
Last post by cliveb -
However, pressing on the  top of the DAC (avoiding the tubes or at least the tube holes if the tubes are removed) does not seem to alter the hum at all. What does appear to alter the hum somewhat is removing the chassis altogether (i.e. leaving only the base and the front plate). When this is done, the hum is less and possibly below the threshold of being a problem. If the casing were then to dampen this sound further it would likely be OK. The problem is, the casing appears to worsen the hum.
There are two ways that the casing might accentuate the hum:

1. The case has a mechanical resonant frequency that coincides with the vibration in the transformer and is therefore excited by it. Pressing down on the case would alter its resonant frequency so that it is no longer excited. Since doing so does not reduce the hum, this is probably not the mechanism in play.

2. The other mechanism is that the case is acting as a resonator for the noise inside - like the body of a violin or acoustic guitar. Pressing down on the case won't affect this very much, since it's more to do with the shape and volume of the interior space. Given what you have reported, this seems the more likely explanation for what's going on.

Atmasphere - I do indeed believe that mechanical vibration through the chassis is at least part of the issue.

However, pressing on the  top of the DAC (avoiding the tubes or at least the tube holes if the tubes are removed) does not seem to alter the hum at all. What does appear to alter the hum somewhat is removing the chassis altogether (i.e. leaving only the base and the front plate).

The problem is, the casing appears to worsen the hum.

Whilst I remain keen to address the root cause of the problem, if there is anything that can be done casing-wise then of course I would be keen to try it! As mentioned earlier, I tried putting a rubber washer in-between the 2 screws that fasten the chassis to the front panel, though this did not alter it. I considered putting washers in-between all the smaller screws that hold the casing to the base panel, though this would be extremely fiddly to do.

Hubert - the amp is a Classe-CAP2100 (2x100W stereo amp).

Thanks for the info. I thought the compatibility could go both ways, so newer versions of foobar could also sometimes require some components to be updated to keep up. Was I wrong to assume that ?

Anyway, I have updated my 1.2.2 and I have instantly found the 14 missing AAC tracks, so thanks for that. :)

Opus / Re: Opus 1.3-beta is here
Last post by imepv7 -
Encoding at 20.0x max using Foobar 1.4 beta! If Im not mistaken it used to be around 100.0x. Much slower compared to FhG AAC @ 70.0x max.

I got  a slight slow down from ~300x to ~250x on my 3632QM (i7, Ivy Bridge). Not an issue for me.
What CPU do You have?


I do have a very cheap AMD A8 Quad core CPU! Makes a lot of difference! Thanks for the input, though.
