How do you config the EQ again? I've gotten no problems until that step.

 

 

Equalizer settings

15. Filter: Gain         Freq: doesn't matter   Gain: -3,039    BW: 1,000

 

 

I can find the Frequency readings on the top left of ElectriQ, but nothing about gain or BW... Sorry for the noobness xD

You have to double click on the dots :) Add a new dot by double clicking anywhere on the line too. Will add that info to the guide.

Thanks! Hmm the EQ is really unstable...

 

Also how do you save your own EQ settings to the preset?

Yes it's unstable, you can't save presets within the EQ itself, that'll just crash. I'm also offering a preconfigured install if that's easier. To save different EQ presets I just save all other foobar2000 plugin settings at the same time as well using DSP chain serializer plugin that's also linked in the guide.

No worries. And you really did a great job tuning the dolby to match the FR of the normal sound

EDIT: Turns out it was just a specific album that was poorly ripped. Will provide a minor update to vol levels/bass adjustment though.

 

EDIT2: "Forward" Config now minorly updated, I'm extremely pleased now, doubt I'll find better settings from here.

I am using "Forward" configuration you shared and liking it, thanks for sharing.

however when I click on DSP->Channel Mixer, Foobar will crash, I wanted to try with reduced soundstage, did you had this problem anytime.

Excellent!

 

By the way, I just opened up Electri-Q and noticed that I can't see the frequency curve that is in the first post. So that kind of got me worried that it isn't even enabled.. but I guess it's supposed to be like this since it's straight from the preconfigured download.

Yea it does for me too, you need to go through File -> Preferences -> DSP Manager -> select Channel Mixer -> Configure selected

Yea it's supposed to be like that, you need to click on the Electri-Q window once and then you'll see the EQ settings.

You can use the Presets Pane in the vst effect for saving your settings. For me it works and don't crash.

Been testing the config with speakers... funny thing is that using speakers with this config is way more sensitive to setting changes, you can change one slider by like 0.02 and I start noticing a change already. I changed the current config just a little bit where it after extensive testing with different songs etc until it sounded the best (the most natural sounding soundstage, it also changes the soundstage using speakers slightly) and currently auditioning it with my headphones again and may update the config to this if it passes my "betatesting" as usual. Would be nice to have a config that works great for both speakers and headphones as I upload many demos to youtube of which many viewers may be using speakers so it would nice if it at least didn't sound worse if he/she is a speaker user.

I would love to have separate configs specialized for speakers and headphones. I wouldn't feel too compelled to combine the two and possibly compromise the settings. Switching between configs is as trivial as switching between headphone and speaker outputs for most people.

True but the adjustment required was so small I didn't see the need of this preset but I changed stereo image width now to 0.96 from 0.95 and just adjusted gain a tiiiiny bit though. 0.96 setting allows a bit better depth to the soundstage without becoming too off-centered.

 

For hardstyle lovers also check out this one, also a good showcase that bass impact is nice after I've removed advanced limiter. :P

I'm using the forward setting with foobar + hd25's and it's an awesome improvement, thanks! Seems to give even the 25's a soundstage!

 

I'm really new to all this so excuse the noob question - in your preset download the buffer size is set at it's default 1000ms, I take it I still want to put that back down to 0 as I had it set to previously - smallest is best, right?

 

Cheers.

 

EDIT: 50ms is minimum not 0... d'oh!
