I use  Columns UI and   the settings shown in the image.

You need to download the missing  components. Than you go to Preferences- Display- Columns UI- Layout- and use the settings in the image. After you have done this you can change the colors and settings  of  the components like you want.

Hey RPGWiZaRD,

So to avoid that happening, always switch between the stock foobar2000 config before switching to one of the other ones.

That's a lot easier than switching between two installations of Foobar!   Thanks again!  I'm a believer, having listened to lot of music now.  It amazes me how I can find nothing I could describe as destructive - no loss of detail.  Thanks again, so much!

Hey musicreo, thanks for the suggestion! It's much faster to switch between configs now 

 

 

 

would be even better if the button is highlighted whenever a config is on though

How do you add those really? I don't see any such options when right clicking in the foobar2000 interface and yes I'm using the very default layout without any fancy skins or whatever.

It's the buttons layout. just right click the button panel -> Buttons Options and add them

Looks a little different for me... I have "Customize Buttons..." but I didn't find any options to display text instead of an icon there.

It looks different because Frequency Blue certainly uses Columns UI which is much more configurable than the default layout.

Just for variety's sake there are some interesting(of course) configs over on deviantart.

I tried this and it did not yield the desired result... :( Would you be able to export the settings?

RPG, I just want to say thank you - what an awesome contribution!

 

I was able to get your "forward" and "laid back" configurations installed. I am really enjoying the "laid back" configuration. Strangely for me, it the "laid back" config sounds more forward than the "forward" config! Maybe I did something wrong, or maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about. Regardless, the "laid back" configuration for me is sounding quite stunning! Edit: I should point out also that to get volume equalization, I have to increase the volume of the "forward" config quite a bit to get to the same level as the "laid back" config (and default config).

 

Final edit: for whatever reasons, the "forward" and "laid back" configs are now making sense and sounding as I would have expected (and also as expected, I am enjoying the "forward" config now). Not sure what was happening there, but all is good now! And finding out about being able to change the DSP chain preset is awesome. Now to figure out how to those buttons working lol!

 

Fwiw, I am listening via laptop/Windows7/foobar + ELE DAC + Fiio E12 + AD900X.

 

Thanks again!

This is awesome! Thanks! And thanks for the tip about avoiding the crashing as well!

I don't know if this works but here are my  settings.

foobarlayout.zip 5k .zip file

 Did you have all components installed you need for this layout? (waveformseekbar,peakmeter spectrum etc?)

post #629 of 728

Thanks for your package RPGWIZARD!

 

This sounds great, have been using it only since yesterday and will need more time and quality listening to fully appreciate the added value of this immersive experience that you are providing head-fi users!

 

Was looking for a while for something that could reproduce binaural recordings listening experience and your work took me closer to the destination in that path!

 

Thanks man for this excellent work!

Hello. Thank you so much for doing this. I have been using your configuration since 2 months already. Its so GOOD. THANK YOU!

Question: I thought about using the config for classical for improving my piano improvisations (i use samples with a keyboard, not recording of a real piano) but it seems its too "excesive". Is there a config that would work with anything tought it doest improve that much the audio? It literaly blows me my headphones. I changed some things on the EQ and got better results but since you are a pro i ask for your advice.

 

 

Here is a sample: http://www.goear.com/listen/6aef2dc/h-gg
