How about a little more information on why this happened?  OS, DAC, driver, file playing etc.

I got a similar error when using the beta 8 for the first time. 

Code: [Select]
Opening track for playback: "D:\Music\xxxxxx Music\Singles\C\City and Colour - Rain When I Die.m4a"
Soft fader output failure: Unsupported format
Unrecoverable playback error: Unsupported format

to fix it i needed to click the reset page button on the output page.

Actually not fixed. when i play a song after opening foobar2000 I get the following error.

Code: [Select]
Opening track for playback: "D:\Music\xxxxxxx Music\Singles\C\City and Colour - Rain When I Die.m4a"
Unrecoverable playback error: Unsupported format

but when i try and play the track again it works. If i close foobar2000 and reopen it will behave the same way, error on first play and work on the second play.

Can confirm. I get the same error:

Some things clearly went sideways in yesterday's build.
Beta 9 posted, the problem has been fixed.
For future reference, old beta downloads work - just edit the version number in the link.

Beta 9, exclusive mode works. high CPU when paused. Thank you Peter for all the hard work.

Yes, high CPU usage with exclusive mode on pause with fading enabled in beta 9. With Fading disabled CPU usage is OK.

Beats me why fading makes a difference.

2. CPU usage is higher during pause than during playback - for [exclusive] only.

The first play error is gone now but as others have said very high cpu usage (25% - 30%) when paused in exclusive mode with smooth seeking enabled. CPU usage is fine when paused with smooth seek disabled.

Please try:

Does it play a clean beep for you, or glitch?

Fading is implemented as a layer between real output and fb2k code.
Individual outputs have nothing to do with fading now, though enabling fading does change the behaviors of code talking to the output, which exposed this specific bug in new WASAPI code.
You can use fading even with ASIO and alike (verified, works with ASIO).

For me all problems with exclusive mode are gone in beta 10.

Beta 9 & 10 fixed the "unsupported format" error in exclusive for me.   However, playback fails when transitioning between files with different bit depth or resolution when smooth seek is turned on.   No errors, but either large gaps in playback or just outputs noise.   A pause and then start again fixes it.   With smooth seek turned off I no longer have any issues.  (This in Windows 10 using a Chord Qutest DAC.)

Same here (Windows 10 21H1 x64, S.M.S.L SU-8 DAC).

Thanks for the reports.
Please document any more issues that you find, all of these will be addressed next week.
Only issues I can't currently help with is those where BeepExclusive.exe also fails; I'll just drop warnings about old foo_out_wasapi to help troubleshooting these.

I'm also getting gaps in playback when playback goes from one file to another with different sampling rate. And by gaps, I mean playback gets these weird stalls a few times a second. I have Smooth Seeking off, because it causes delay when starting playback by double-clicking a track.

In beta 10 the stuttering issue when switching from 44100 16bit tracks to 96000 24bit tracks in exclusive mode is still present.
The light on the DAC switches to the correct color for 96000 when the track changes.

fb2k v1.6.7 beta 10

How to reproduce:
1. Output Device: Primary Sound Driver [exclusive]
2. Enable smooth seeking...
3. Load playlist attached
4. Click Play stream "Energy Star Night"
After an error occurs, playback will go to the next stream. The sound will be jerky.
This does not happen for beta 6.
