Some users reported it isn't loaded by default when you grab the preconfigured package, you might have to manually enable it.

This page, check so it's loaded ("location" path will be empty if it's not loaded):

FILE -> PREFERENCES -> PLAYBACK -> DSP MANAGER. SELECT DOLBY HEADPHONE PLUGIN IN THE LIST -> CONFIGURE SELECTED

 

DH was 100% activated when I used it as it appeared exactly like what your screenshot shows except path was C:\foobar2000\components\DolbyHph.dll to be accurate, but it's the same thing. It's easy to notice since I have a xonar soundcard as reference.

Called then ? I registered here specially to thank for his excellent work RPGWiZaRD !! Thank you for this custom foobar !! :beyersmile:

 

I listen with Superlux HD-662 F or 68 Yoga CD (Patafix custom) ... It's very good, headphones are transformedI'm no expert, but I'd like you two ideas ... What do you think ?

 

1 - EQ Electri-Q dropped at zero in Digital modehttp://hpics.li/bf7f4e5

 

2 - Adding a Resampler (Sox) at the end. 90% Passband, 30% Phase response. http://hpics.li/790331f

 

The sound seems to me less bright, more detailed... ?

Is it possible to use this config in conjunction with Isone Pro?

 

What settings would make the most sense? Specifically, where in the DSP chain would the VST Wrapper go (before/after DH? Before/After Channel Mixer?), and what mode would Isone best be set to (5.1; 5.0/no lfe; Stereo)?

 

Thanks! I'll come back with my own conclusions about the sound of the various setups after some further experimentation, but I'd very much appreciate any input.

 

Here are the settings I've found to sound best so far, but I'm really not decided on whether or not I've got it right or more important, prefer it to your configs on their own:

(Bypass is supposed to be unticked, obviously)

Hey All! 

I'm fairly new with using a dac or any kind of computer audio. I'm struggling with Foobar and my E07K. I know the flac files are good, but I'm getting brief pauses/cutting out as music is played. I'm running Windows 7 and have the most current version of Wasapi loaded. Can anyone help me know why this is happening?

Sounds like you need to increase the buffer size.

 

Go to Preferences -> Playback -> Output and set the Buffer Length to something like 1500 ms.

While there check your output device. If it is WASAPI based, then you should also check the Advanced -> Playback - WASAPI buffers. I have them set to 200 ms for event mode and 500 ms for push mode.

Thanks a ton! I'll let you know how it goes!

Yesterday, I tried the forward and laid-back versions. Somehow, the laid-back version gave me a few more details but my ears do not like it because I felt everything liked a nearly flat board. Then I tried the forward version and feel it more engaged than the laid-back, but I really liked it because most of my music relates to vocals. Moreover, both the versions somehow fix the distortions of the vocal I got at some songs. I really appreciate RPGWiZaRD's work and thanks for the mod.

 

My test track was Metal Gear The Best is yet to come. I have Odac + C4 portable amplifier with MrSpeakers Alpha Dog headphone. My next upgrade would be a nice iFi iUSB to clean my dirty USB power.

Glad you enjoyed it, I should really update the foobar2000 version sometimes soon haha. Been so busy with rest of my hobbies that I seldom think about upgrading foobar2000 player, I usually only update mine only like once in a half year or something. :p
