You could probably develop a small income on this forum creating software to facilitate this process, or even marketing a PRIR for idiots instruction set! BTW, I am assuming that Decibel or one of the Mac compatible players would work as well as Foobar2000 as I have a Mac. Correct?
Yes, I agree. I know that Jurgen is REALLY knowledgeable, but his English translation is tough to understand at times. I can't imagine trying to write highly technical information in a foreign language! Not faulting Jurgen for that, but it can be hard to figure out.
Now, you add to that the fact that he is Windows based, not Mac based, and it will be even tougher. I don't have a Mac either.
But, in theory, it should work on a Mac. First, you need a music player app, but it has to support VST plugins. I am not familiar with any of those apps, but from a brief search, the only one that is supposed to support VST plugins is Fidelia. VST plugins are designed for digital audio workstations used for audio engineering. So VST support for music player apps is limited.
(Update: Apparently when Fidelia moved to 64bit, they had to lose VST plug-in support. So, only versions before 1.2 will work with VST.)
Here's a list of Mac VST host applications.
So assuming you have some audio app and it works with VST, then you need to have Bidule and Reverberate LE. Bidule is not free, but you can use the trial just to make sure it works with the old version of Fidelia or which ever app you end up trying.
I think you may end up having to use a DAW app instead of a music player. Not ideal, for sure, but it may work just to be able to process your audio files for listening on a portable MP3 player.
I would just try to get any application that will actually load Bidule and Reverberate LE. Once you get that far, maybe we can figure out the rest. I have a basic understanding of how Jurgen is doing it.
