Title: Foobar 2000 Feature Request
Post by: latreche34 on 2018-02-01 18:48:37
Hi developers, Would you consider adding a feature that allows to insert few seconds of silence between tracks, This helps when making analog or digital mixtapes.
 
While I'm at it I have a technical question, Does the presence of volume control in the application makes it non bit perfect?

You can add silence with a component (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_dsp_silence).

Having a volume control doesn't make anything lose bit-perfectness. But bit-perfect playback requires of course having volume at max, not using ReplayGain or other DSPs, and using WASAPI or ASIO outputs.

For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to use the silence feature after installing it into foobar2000.

There is also a silence generator built-in, but it only generates files of arbitrary lengths from adding the URL:

silence://<number of seconds>

The sample rate is the same as the other generators, specified in Advanced Preferences.

What kode54 mentioned can be used if you want silence only at some specific locations. The DSP I mentioned needs to be enabled on the Preferences -> Playback -> DSP screen. Names listed on the right panel are available DSPs, double clicking one activates it and places it on the left panel. The component works without touching configuration and adds two seconds of silence after each track.

If you wanted to use a DSP with the Converter you would use Converter's Processing menu and enable the DSP there.

Ok, I didn't know that I have to double click playback that's why I missed that hidden menu. I think 2 seconds is still short but oh well better than nothing, Thanks for the help.

It's not smart to edit posts. Your comment about length could have gone unnoticed had I not accidentally opened this thread again after having read your initial reply.

You can adjust the length under DSP settings in preferences. With older foobars activate the Affix silence DSP and click configure, with 1.4 series just double click it. Once the settings are open type any length you wish.

What is unique song list to you?

There is already built in search function that you can use to filter / find songs by specific criteria.
