Last post by TT -

you can only have either cd.png or vinyl.png for one music album in the folder.
If you want to use your own custom, you can do that with the disc art placeholder.
Save and rename your custom one to either "cd-custom.png" or "vinyl-custom.png"
and put it in foobar2000\profile\georgia-reborn\images\discart
Restart foobar.

Now right click on the big album art for context menu > Disc art placeholder > "CD - custom" or "Vinyl - custom"
You also need to deactivate the "No placeholder" option to display the disc art placeholder.

finally back to basics.
It is better to remove the USB on the DAC side once, such as USB iFi DAC. (2022-06-20) (2022-09-14)

Super Audio CD Decoder
1.) Preferrences > Tools > SACD > Output (per device) > Type > DSD+PCM 192000 ← Change

ASIO+DSD support
2.) Preferences > Playback > Output: ASIO+DSD DAC ASIO Driver
for example
Output: ASIO+DSD: iFi (by AMR) HD USB Audio

Do not use DSP (Active DSPs → None)

If you play with this and feel that the sound is small, please check 1.) again.


My iFi Audio ZEN DAC and nano iDSD also works with this setup (DSD 128).

HI again, Air KEN. The result was exactly the same as with the version 1.2.0 of the DSDTranscoder file. As before, the *.dll file is not loading and I see no sign of a DSD Transcoder (DoP/Native) extension in the ASIO drivers section of the output playback. All I see in the ASIO drivers is iFi (by AMR) HD USB Audio. I think we're both wasting out time and I'd be better going back to the earlier version of fb2k. Why my system is behaving as it is is a complete mystery, I'm afraid. Out of curiosity, I did click on the 1.1.5. version of the dsd_transcoder_ctl.exe file and noted it contained a rabge of DSD amd DoP resolutions

After the removal of the foo skip plugin I'm left with this rather annoying indication in the dsp menu.

I can't delete the item permanently.

I see remaining traces in the foo_ui_columns.dll.cfg as well

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Really annoying thing.

I also deleted the foo_skip.cfg

Nothing to do the evidence reappears as soon as I activate any other plugin.

This also applies to other plugins since I uninstall a plugin the related configuration must also be deleted (discogs is one of them).

ok, sorry for the spam, I think I have it:

We can create an eventsource to `api/query/events` and to `api/query/updates`. Sadly, there's no documentation for that at all :/ but that seems to be the way to use it. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

@muppypuppy your suggestion is really cool, but it seems that there's no endpoint to change preferences directly ( so I wouldn't be able to help since my expertise is on the frontend (and maybe some Python stuff but never have worked with C#). Anyways, that's a great suggestion.
General - (fb2k) / Screetchy digital sound
Last post by brad1138 -
The sound is similar to a fax or old school dialup modem, but higher pitch and more annoying. I have had the DAC for a few years, with no issues.

I recently installed the ASIO output component for Foobar 2000 on my laptop, which is connected to the DAC via USB.

I was doing A/B comparisons of CDs (through CD transport hooked up via coax to DAC) and the FLAC files I created from them. They are on a laptop used solely for that purpose.

I started a song on both sources at the same time, and was using the RME's remote to switch between the 2 inputs. The "distortion" started quietly, barely noticeable, but got worse every time I switched between the transport and back. More of the music was replaced by the "screeching" sound each time.

It very quickly became painful to listen to.

I stopped the song, and when I started it back up, it was fine, until I switched inputs again a couple times and the screeching came back. I then closed Foobar and reopened it, I didn't notice it, but I only flipped inputs a couple times. I was frustrated and walked away.

I don't know if the problem is Foobar or the DAC. DAC is RME ADI-2 DAC FS.

Any thoughts on the problem?
General - (fb2k) / Re: How do I configure spectrum visualization to display frequencies below 50 Hz?
Last post by TF3RDL -
Maybe people are getting their wires crossed a bit. here.

That's me. Had even forgotten that there were those built-in visualizations.
Or that the alternatives ( ) are not in the official component repository.

Following your link, it appears there is a successor to Musical Spectrum by thw same dev that might do what the OP wants (it also has a configurable Spectrogram), but it hasn't been released yet:

Looking forward to this!
That Sb-sDFT was never a thing (also, the link to the page is dead since Wreck-it Woodhouse was meant to be a test wiki anyway), it was succeeded by CQT Analyzer and the FFT Analyzer can also visualize spectrogram too.

Cool: I found a public Git repository containing an implementation of CQT using Accelerate framework, calling itself CQTKit.

Not so cool: No license, headers only contain a copyright notice to the author of the repository.
Speaking of the constant-Q transform and sliding DFT thing (since calculating musical spectrum using Goertzel transform is painfully slow and offloading it to GPU may not be practical for anything outside PCs designed for gaming or machine learning), there is a sliding implementation of the constant-Q part of calcSpectrum2() function on my sketch called qdft by jurihock, but no variable-Q transform unlike foo_cqt_analyzer
