Thank you!! I stayed with v1.0 but found skins and 1 matches much better than the old orange one  (Dual screen screeny)

 

Found out where that weird name came from...lol...I thought it was German but it was just some random keystrokes...mystery solved:D

I've already installed v1, but was looking to see if there were really any added benefits from their final version of posihfopit.

 

Will bookmark though, just in case.  Thanks!

Hello,

 

I have a few questions regarding this tutorial.

 

When you start using sinegen, do you press the power button as a song is playing?

 

Also what settings do you put the level (-db) at? By default it opens at -15 and when played with a song, the volume of the song is unchanged. However, the picture in the tutorial shows the levels set at 0, and when played with a song, the song's volume decreases slightly.

 

Using foobar2k with AKG Q701.

I think you misread the tutorial.

 

Sinegen is used to seek the frequency response humps and valleys of your headphones, so you don't need to play any songs. Just press the power button, listen to the tone, and move the slider up and down until you can hear the tone becomes louder of softer on certain frequencies.

 

Most of the time you'll find the tone gets very loud between 7 - 8 kHz.

 

It is better if you do that to each channel separately by setting the level -100 on one of the channel. It's because left and right cups usually have different frequency response.

Okay, thank you for the information.

 

Another question.

 

When using Electri-Q as a VST on Foobar, do you load it together within foobar as you play the pink noise? Or separate (as an application) from Foobar, and then load it (depending on what EQ you achieved) to play audio through the DSP/VST.

You don't load Electri-Q separately. You need to load it inside Foobar, so that the music gets 'routed through' it.
