Here,  Athlon Venice 3200+/ Audigy SE (shielded)@X-Fi Xtreme Audio,  I have to set all threads to "real time",  to avoid crackling.  Less, or none at all,  clipping than in Foobar.  

Lilith + Asio4all + CMSS-3D =

@Leepery

 

Do you mind trying version 0.992 of Lilith with "asio(project9k)" and asio4all plugin? I find it even better... nay noticeably better than even the newer ulilith version.

 

It is in Japanese and haver godawful UI, but imo the sound it produce is very worth it.

a) it's a very bad idea to randomly set threads to real-time

b) audio glitches have nothing to do with clipping, you're confusing things

c) foobar plays audio 1:1 like any other non-defective audio player so there cannot be "less clipping"

 

d) this thread gotta be a joke

It doesn't support VST plugins, does it?

If you have Foobar, try loading everything to RAM first as some people claimed that it reduces potential jitter. I couldn't tell a difference but it's nice not to have stutters when you experience heavy network or HDD activities.

 

And also hello, Excelcius. Nice to see you're posting here too.


Nah, I have no problems with stuttering.  The most I'll usually be doing is playing around with Photoshop or messing around on the web, like now.  I'm not sure if that counts as heavy network or hard disk activities, and plus I have stuff downloading in the background, kind of.  I'll give the RAM thing a try.

Would you mind posting a link to it ?  I will try google...

right-click/VST plugins/ then you can load them. VST plugins are the most widespread plugins in the PC pro-audio world for EQ, crossfeed and so on. They're processed in 64fp in uLilith, and only 32fp in fubar. Very useful if you wanna follow this tutorial: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/413900/how-to-equalize-your-headphones-a-tutorial

 I found the SQ even worse when caching the files in RAM in fubar, using XP SP3 biggrin.gif

I tried uLilith but compared to foobar the soundstage collapsed, especially vertically. Sounds are more pinpointed in uLilith so foobar may be a bit blurrier, but I prefer the larger soundstage. uLilith also had slightly sharper highs that got annoying in songs I have no problems with in foobar.

 

I couldn't get WASAPI output to work in uLilith though, it said the device was already allocated, so I used ASIO in Lilith. This may amount to the differences I think I heard.

foobar has automatic HDCD decoding and mixing matrix, but g*ddamn this player sounds horrid. I've tried really hard, but this player is dull as a dish washer...it'd make me sell my audio gear and buy a jackhammer as a new hobby.

it's not uLilith that sounds "better", it's just foobar that sounds....fubar: http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/pcaudio/messages/2/21586.html

 

"the best player I've used in my system in terms of sound. Larger soundstage, everything fleshed out better/of a whole, low bass/bass/drums more impact better defined, everything highs on down more articulate"

I think he was agreeing with dropping Foobar2k since the fish symbolizes change according to Greco-Roman mythology. =P

When I play a song with uLilith through ASIO4ALL and open a .avi the volume of the song goes up. When I quit the .avi the volume goes back to normal again. How come?

post #299 of 484

That's weird, I can't play anything else if uLilith is playing.  Having uLilith open but not playing anything then play a video or something in another application does nothing to that other app/video.  I, too, use ASIO4all.

your video player messing w/ the windows master volume or so? I often do this w/ PotPlayer+Reclock and uLilith+A4A, everything's fine.
