Nice guide! I have tried OP's setting and settings posted by various posters here but in the end I keep going back to original stereo mode. I have to admit that this is fun and improves soundstage but it still don't feel right for me. It's not as clear/crisp as the original stereo mode.

Pals,help here.

I have recently downloaded the new Foobar version with both wasapi modality (the push and event ones) but in this same bit perfect mode  am unable to play hi res files (96Khz/24Bits) with 5.1 channels.In normal mode (using windows audio streaming) i can play those files ,considering that with both i use Channel Mixer and Dolby Headphone settings.Any Clue?

btw the problem shown is "Unrecoverable playback error: Unsupported stream format: 48000 Hz / 24-bit / 6 channels".

just to make an example ,when listening to Bohemian Rhapsody Flac 5.1 the back vocals are miles away,whatever change i am able to do in mixer channel i cannot solve the problem.I am starting to get rally Pi$$ed off,i am trying to get my best Foobar preferences since few weeks but every time i get some sort of problem.

Very thanks guys.

I have not been able to get Foobar 1.1.15 and Wasapi 3.0 to work together.  I believe there's a compatibility issue.

That's odd. Both WASAPI (3.0 version) modes work flawlessly on foobar2000 1.1.12a.

 

Do previous foobar2000 versions work, as well as the previous WASAPI component version?

Works fine with 1.1.15 here.

post #578 of 590

It's not because it's 1.1.15.  It's the Channel Mixer that WASAPI 3.0 seems to have an issue with. If I set up for two channels, it's fine. If I configure for the 5.1 Dolby experience deal and go to 6 channels (or anything other than 2) WASAPI 3.0 bombs out.  Ref: Win 7x64, i7 quad core with 8GB Ram/6GB cache, updated USB 2.0 drivers.

By the way, I'm using a Leckerton UHA4 which uses the vanilla USB driver so there's no sound card involvement.

Use DS instead and set your Leckerton UHA4 exclusively for foobar2000.

So i followed this exactly and while there IS a difference, while listening to the test files i noticed the rear L/R seems to be in the same place as front L/R there is not distinction between the two, they just kinda sound different (volume difference obviously, per the setting) but i dont hear any staging/seperation between the front and rear at all. Using onboard soundcard with SRH840 headphones. Am i doing smthg wrong here?

post #582 of 590

can you do 7.1 with this config? also what plugins and configuration i need for that?

post #583 of 590

can someone answer me, if i can make it to 7.1 channels using this? i want a better soundstage than this if it is possible.

post #584 of 590

Thanks so much, Graphicism.  Been a while since I've said this, but I'm noticing more details in some of my music that were previously heard.  The seperation particularly helped out when listening to The Fall of Troy's Ghostship Demos because of the complex, multi-layered guitar work.  Just one more tool to help me fully appreciate my music. 

 

Thanks again!
