Like Case I also have been experimenting with varying the height of the panel that the horizontal LED Peakmeter lives in.

I use two different presets with the horizontal Peakmeter: No legend and 1 Legend (2 Legends simply takes too much space).

You cannot find a panel height that displays both presets correctly in case of 3 channel and 5 channel sources (or upmixes to 3 / 5 channels).

EDIT: By varying the panel height you can find optimums for 2ch, 4ch, 6ch and 8ch.

@Klymins, Is it a matter of disk space or bandwidth ?   If not then why not :
Create a preset in foobar2k :  source to output = WAV
Add these DSP's:
> re sampler=44.1
> convert mono to stereo

Then in CS6, encode the new WAV's as mp3 cbr 112 or 128

The Amax in the skippystudio explanation refers to maximum amplitude of the signal, which is 1.0. Their graph also perfectly shows that real RMS can't be as high as peaks.
So remove the division by Amax and things will be correct. Real RMS shows correct RMS, and the checkbox enables the 'RMS+3' mode.

I never saw disappearing bars with the old release.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Old 1.x versions usage

It's not only about bugfixes or not needing v2 features, but as reported by people being forced to use 32 bit versions yet, v2 forces caching of all tags and it can not be set to skip caching of specific ones. Thus it crashes on big libraries in some cases, as soon as you got lyrics or fingerprints, or things which don't need to be cached at all (for queries usage, etc.).,125541.0.html

Therefore I'm stuck with v1.6, which allows to manage the mem usage for specific tags if needed.

There is also a recurring crash when trying to play missing/dead files on a playlist, at least in v1.6. Which surely accounts for many of my reports.

EDIT: Btw, until this post, I didn't knew there was a 1.6.17 version. It's currrently so hidden on the download page that most people will simply not notice there is a new (old) version.
