MonoPlus

This plugin convert stereo music to mono without antiphase data lost.

How it works:
In frequency domain (by FFT), this plugin calculate the magnitudes of left, right and mono mix channels for each frequency.
Output signal combined from mix of left and right magnitude and phase from mono mix.
When antiphase mode, the magnutude calculated as difference beetwen mix of left and right, and mono magnitude.

Dear @E.Sokol Could you recompile this plugin for x64, please?

I tried to install the foo_dsp_MonoPlus_v1.1.1 on my Windows 10 machine. I am running the latest Foobar2000.

The instructions read:

foo_dsp_MonoPlus.dll - for old versions of foobar2000
foo_dsp_MonoPlus.fb2k-component - for new versions of foobar2000

I get the following error when trying to install the 2nd one:

Could not load component "foo_dsp_MonoPlus.fb2k-component": This component was built for a different processor architecture.

It probably means the component is 32-bit only and therefore will only work with 32-bit foobar.

Yes. "old" and "new" are as they were when the text was written. So,
"old versions of foobar2000" means "even older versions of foobar2000" - that is, before the ".fb2k-component" file extension.
"new versions of foobar2000" was written when the new versions were all 32-bit.

@mycroft, do you have any reason to believe that MonoPlus plugin is of low quality?

Anyway, I stumbled upon it while researching the possibilities of converting a stereo file to mono. Sometimes I come across an audiobook, supposedly in stereo. But in fact, it is entirely or mostly recorded in mono — this is evidenced by the negligible difference between the channels. Two obvious ways to make it mono are a) to downmix the channels and b) to discard one of them. @E.Sokol seems to be suggesting a third way or a variation of the one already mentioned.
