Why are there 3 versions of the plugin? I understand that 'mod' with the list of frequencies blank is equivalent to 'non-mod' version.

Do new versions compiled with 1.4 SDK use dynamic library linking when used with fbk 1.4?

Re: Resampler plugin

Yes, new versions (0.8.4 and newer) are dynamically linked to MSVC runtime files.

Any chance you can re-code  S0x binary to sound better for Classical Music with extended highs?

Now, that we have option "Automatic resampler preference" in advanced settings (in fb2k 1.4 and higher), isn't option "Service Priority" redundant?

Bugfix version (0.8.7) was released.

Thank you Ivqcl!  Have the two "mod" versions been permanently discontinued, and, are the 0.8.4 versions of those still available (only 0.8.3 is now present in the "old versions" post)?

Should we update from the old 0.8.3 versions to a newer version for reasons of audio quality? Do newer versions quality wise do "better" up- or downsampling or is it just necessary to update if you experience problems?

Re: Resampler plugin

Audio quality is the same, so you can keep 0.8.3.

But if you convert files using this resampler, and you hear some (very quiet) clicks during track changes, then you should try 0.8.7.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Another question that someone asked before but I think there wasn't an answer:
Are the mod versions discontinued? I always found them very useful.

If there is just one version updated in the future, wouldn't it make sense if that would be mod(1)? It's really useful to be able to exclude (or include) sample frequencies.

Hi.

I could not find any relevant info in this thread using search so here is my question:

Does this plugin support multichannel (5.1, 7.1) resampling on all channel when using a plugin like FreeSurround earlier in the DSP chain?

Example: FLAC stereo source file @ 44.1khz -> DSP Surround processing to 5.1 channel -> SoX Resampling to 96khz

Thanks.

I have the Sox resampler as the first component in the chain, so the source gets passed on immediately at the resampled rate to whatever processing is applied farther down the chain.  That way I don't know why the surround processing (or anything else) wouldn't work just fine.

That will work just fine.

Also works and might be helpful if something in the DSP chain has a harder time with certain sample rates that are either too high or too low.

Thank you both for your reply.

I was interested in knowing, specifically, if the data sent to the output are 6 channels, all re-sampled or if it only process the 2 stereo channels and pass the other 4 unchanged from the source. I know it "works" as in "I can hear the music just fine".

As a side note, putting the Resampler first in the chain produce bad quality with the DSP plugin("FreeSurround") I am using to upmix to 5.1. The higher the resampling rate from SoX, the higher the distortion present in the 5.1 output. I believe the culprit is FreeSurround not the resampler. That is why I have to put it in second. just after SoX.

So, to reiterate in broader terms: Does SoX resampler support resampling from a source with more than 2 channels?

Re: Resampler plugin

Reply #466
It supports resampling any arbitrary number of channels, as long as you have the resources for it.

Noob question time. What exactly do all of these options mean?

Any chance to get this as _mod and _mod2 version?
I would also be grateful if the mod versions could be brought back. They are very useful in a couple of my workflows.

(Alternatively, does anyone have saved copies of the 0.8.4 mod versions they could re-upload somewhere?)

I have just run into an issue with SoX plugin versions 0.8.4 and newer. When I use foobar2000 with the uPnP plugin to stream to my network player in the living room then all SoX plugins newer than 0.8.3 cause clicks during track change. There is always one loud click about 1 second after track change. Back to 0.8.3 and everything is fine. I thought I'd share this in case that anyone experiences similar problems.

The change log for 0.8.4 says "added signal extrapolation to reduce a possibility of clicks during track change". Probably if you use foobar2000 on your desktop everything works fine. Strangely it seems to do the opposite if you use the uPnP plugin.

Thanks for this resampler component, works well for me.
As 0.8.7 seems to be the final version, would you consider bringing mod 2 up to date with more recent fixes?
