This plug-in is amazing. Works perfectly on my Foobar 1.4 installation, running Windows 7 x64 bit.

I have a lot of VST plug-ins that I've collected for use in Reaper DAW, and I really wanted a parametric EQ for Foobar. Well now I can use FabFilter Pro-Q 2 VST in Foobar and I'm super happy :) :) :)

I also tested it with a handful of other VSTs, including digital guitar amp simulators, with horrible (but hilarious) results. Next I will try some of my impulse response loaders :)

It seems that after you install this plugin in foobar v 1.4 , when you click on "view" , you have 2 DSPs in menu, and in second menu after you click to open default equalizer foobar crashes. Can This be fixed?

mire777:  I tried this plugin and had similar crashing problems (not uncommon by reading through the thread), finally just got rid of it.  Have you tried using foo_dsp_vstwrap (http://www.yohng.com/software/foobarvst.html) instead?  Not sure on its compatibility with other VST's but I use it successfully with the author's own limiter VST, drawback from foo_vst is only one VST can be loaded at a time (unless you're loading a VST host plugin with it, not tried).

Yes i tried this plugin, works nice, but when foobar starts, vst menu always popup, i think this is annoying. Is there a way to stop this? Also theres no support for portable mode, if i want to share my config with others, i will lose my vst presets.

Hi mire777:  when I start Foobar I don't get a pop-up, the VST's menu icon just appears minimized to the tray;  that is with the settings and plugin choice already made.  Only on first use did it appear as a pop-up in order for me to indicate the VST folder, etc.

The settings file for whatever reason ends up in C:\ProgramData\GeorgeYohngVST.ini so yes it's not Foobar portable-friendly but I just be sure that I make a backup copy of the .ini if I do any experimenting.

Dont know, but every time i started foobar2000 v 1.4 (portable mod), VST menu pop-up. I added Boot EQ MkII VST plugin and set VST folder. I will try again.

I'm running the 1.4 Portable also.  If you still get the popup after your new test, see if changing any of the options in Display/DefaultUserInterface/Background and Notifications makes any difference (a long shot but who knows).

Of course, if you keep the Show/Hide Plugin Editor option on the right-click interface checked, it will keep showing the selected VST's own GUI when Foobar starts, but I'm assuming that's not what you mean.

I hadn't found this subforum, but it seems I should have posted here instead of in the general 3rd party plugins. My question may have nothing to do with foo_vst and more with how things are displayed. Regardless, when I launch a VST plugin they always launch at the upper left corner, covering the playback functions of the Foobar interface. Can the launch location in the interface be changed?
