Foobar2000 Dolby Headphone config - Comment & discuss! - Page 49

Not sure how virtual speaker effects are working but if you use this config and dolby headphone then you must disable Dolby Headphone on either foobar2000 or the soundcard or else you get it twice applied which will result in much more reverb and exaggerated sound processing.

I wish there was. I've been working with very similar configs that works roughly the same, only had to swap the channel mixer for something else but it involved using an advanced VST host config. Frankly I don't remember exactly all details of that anymore but it was just too much of a PITA to start it all the time when windows launches. Skyrim sounded quite nice though I remember. :)

hmm, ic.. then in regards to my current setup, is there anything i can do to optimize audio quality? Especially when gaming, watching movies/anime? :)

You have to set the game audio to 5.1.  For movies I upmix 5.1 to 7.1 (just redirecting the RS/RS Channels to 50% to RB/LB Channels) using ffdshow in MPC-HC.  I also use the "Equalizer-APO". This is a very good multichannel equalizer that can be used with every system sound  (not with WASAPI or ASIO).

just to be clear, so even though im using a pair of headphones, i change the game's internal audio setting to 5.1 whilst using the xonar dhoby engine?

 

also, i'm new to all these things, could you rephrase the above sentence in layman terms and how to go about doing them? Also about the program equalizer APO?

Yes, Dolby Headphone (DH) will play virtual 7.1 on your headphones if you input a 7.1 signal . 

If you input a 5.1 signal  DH plays virtual 5.1 and if you input 2.0 DH plays virtual 2.0,....

You also have to change the channel setting  at your xonar audio card to 7.1, 5.1, 2.0, depending on your audio source channels.

hmm, so if the 7.1 feature is left unchecked, it automatically plays 5.1? which is better for gaming and watching movies (5.1 or 7.1?)

I have a headphone AKG K 280 with the V-DAC II. I do not feel so much vaccations between foobar and one configured for normal headphones that I downloaded from here, why?
thanks
