And please give me recommendations, over the years of using the player, a lot of unnecessary things have accumulated, what can be removed from this, and most importantly HOW to remove it, which path is it in the installation folder?

1. you can use fb2k Preferences dialog to remove components (got to Components tab, find component - right click -> remove)
2. manual method. look into "user-components" folder and remove things like "foo_darklyricssource", "foo_azlyricssource", etc.... i recommend you use free software called Everything to find this folder on your hard drive. I have portable mode enabled in fb2k, so my user-components folder is situated in foobar2000 folder, but your path can be different.

And another question - if you stop supporting your development, because the codes need to be constantly edited, then you will have to reinstall everything, then please update, thank you in advance

i have paused/stopped development because of few things:
1. everything seems works fine.
2. foo_openlyrics will replace obsolete LSP3 component.
3. i'm using xmplay player right now to listen to music because it has super fast start up time with my huge media library.

Great, many thanks for your help. Have been reading up on digital volum, gain matching etc, so think I now have a clearer picture of what is going on. One thing that I am still wondering: presumably if I leave Foobars Preamp gain at 0, as opposed to the -6db previously, even if some tracks are over compressed/too high (gain wise), any digital clipping that may occur will only cause a lack of fidelity ie there is no chance of damage to tweeters, as with analogue clipping in an amplifier? (Not too fussed about a few badly mastered/levelled tracks sounding rough but definitely not keen on any risk to speakers!)
Also, thank you so much for a truly awesome product. I am what I like to call a "budget audiophile" and given all I needed to buy was a second hand UMIK-1, RoomEQ is by far the best improvement to my system in the last ten years. Took me a couple of tries to get my twin subs and Tannoy V12s dialed in, volume-wise, but I have to say that the improvement in clarity is fantastic. Also, thankfully my amplifier, a Lazarus H-1A has plenty of headroom to run it. Reckon my system is now the best I've heard... And all for well under £1k.

Thank you! 👍

I have just started using the MathAudio RoomEQ plugin for Foobar on my PC, output going to Dx3Pro via USB. As the output level going to the DX3Pro is now significantly lower, I am wondering if it is OK to increase the signal to the DAC by upping the Preamp gain in the Foobar settings? The screenshot below shows Foobars VU meters playing at a very low level now. Should I just up the preamp settings such that the VU meters are at a more normal level. (Prior to the use of the MathAudio plugin, I had the preamp settings at - 6db as I read somewhere that this is best to avoid any chance of clipping.) Unfortunately my knowledge of digital clipping/gain matching between Foobar and DAC is minimal (at best!)...
Anyway, any help or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Ideally, you should set all Foobar's gain/volume controls to 0 dB. After that adjust the position of the "Room EQ gain" slider in accordance with the instruction (see step 15 at https://mathaudio.com/room-eq.htm ). Use the volume knob of your audio amplifier to adjust the comfortable volume. All digital volume controls on your PC reduce the signal-to-noise ratio, so it is better to not use them at all (set all of them to 0 dB).

hello

i have 4 layouts in my fb-installation (CUI). the individual layouts are selected via buttons.
is it possible to query the currently active layout?
i would prefer the "hot image" (button) of the currently active layout to be displayed. instead of the "normal image".
or what else could be done so that i can display the current layout? (in "main window" or "status bar" of CUI)

thanks in advance
