Why not just continue to use Case's newly tuned and optimized SoX resampler (0.8.7+) in all your DSP chains then??  No quality compromise there at all.  Make it easy on yourself, francesco.
Hi sveakul
Yes ,I use the SoX resampler (0.8.7+) , i was wondering about delay/glitches/silence pause since it's build in dsp

@francesco: the delay is caused by the resampler component initializing its internal tables. When you seek in a track foobar2000 nukes all DSPs and sets them up again with new data flowing from the new position - this way no DSP can misbehave and not flush its memory. As @sveakul said, using a faster resampler is a good fix.
Hi Case
well , i got it ,that's why even the foobar2000 built in Equalizer dsp does take time to change the sound

There is no correlation between number of new commits since some fixed period and quality of project itself.
Extreme reductions lead to lies.
Yes, but that is not what I was saying. I wasn't implying any relationship between number of commits and quality of projects.

I was just noting that looking at the commits went into ffmpeg, about 75% of those were also applied to librempeg. So, apparently, 75% of the commits that went into ffmpeg were 'good' as they went into librempeg as well.

This should not be this difficult.
You haven't helped yourself by using CUE sheets :-)

I would split the last track into 3, tag them all as track X and add TRACK_INDEX so you can sort them in foobar, then pull them all together in a CUE sheet (INDEX 01,02,03) so they still verify. Finally, prefix the extension of file INDEX 02 with '.silent' and exclude it from foobar (*.silent.flac).

You would also need to exclude this particular cue sheet from foobar too.

There won't be anything adjustable in the various algorithms.

I had used the old standalone SoundTouch component in earlier foobar2000 versions and the sound quality was actually great (subjective, I know). That component started causing problems as fb2k went higher in version number. So I stopped using it.

And I had read this short thread before:  Soundtouch plugin effect the Audio Quality?

I didn't want to come off as complaining, but I brought up the issue of the reverb (or raspiness), I hear, because the sound quality change, between the standalone component and the present day SoundTouch, is so drastic. I was hopeful that perhaps something might could be done about it.

Version 0.47 of DSP Effect and the other available algorithm are functioning quite well for me. So I'll be happy and leave it at that.

Thanks for the sample, though I failed to trigger a crash with it for some reason. But I added obvious error checks to the component and fixed a nasty bug where the component failed to notice that it needs larger buffers when number of channels changes, I believe that is the main cause of crashes with this thing.
Could you check if remains crashless in your hands?
Other changes are added dark mode and 64-bit foobar2000 support.
