Questions about file buffering and downsampling from a newbie 2019-08-12 15:52:28 It looks like Foobar2000 may be the player of my dreams and I'm hoping some of you will help me understand some of the more advanced settings so I can be confident it's operating as I'm thinking.Before I get too long-winded, here are the main things I'm wondering about in Foobar2000:If the full file buffering is set to a sufficiently large value in the Buffering section of the Advanced preferences does Foobar play the track from memory?What's the difference between full file buffering and the playback buffer length that can be set to 30,000 ms in the output section of the playback preferences?I see the ReplayGain can be set to none under the Playback preferences but wonder what the Target Volume in Tools under the Replay Gain Scanner does in this case. I've left that at the default 89 dBWhy would you want to select downsample high-definition content in the ReplayGain Scanner section?I listen mainly to 192 kHz/24-bit flac files generated from my vinyl collection on a reasonably high-end system. Most, though not all, of it is tagged. I've been using the TEAC HR player which plays perfectly but is cumbersome to use in terms of loading tracks etc. VLC player is better in this regard but I experience too many interruptions in the music for critical listening. I'm pretty sure this is because the TEAC player can be set to load the entire track to memory before playback begins.Foobar2000 has been playing without such interruption and I find it really helpful to be able to view my library by folder structure as well as by using the various tag options. The library is pretty large, over 18,000 files in 1825 directories and just under 800 GB. Foobar handles this just fine.Thanks in advance to anyone who cares to reply.
