Foobar's attenuator

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

How can I make sure that Foobar's attenuator is not being used? (i.e. I want to disable it, so that I can control volume only from the system, which is tied to the DAC in the analog domain).

Keep foobar volume at maximum, that's all.

actually, 100% digital volume could get your music to clip: http://www.gearslutz.com/board/showwiki.php?title=Tips-and-Techniques:Intersample-peaks wink_face.gif

use wasapi, asio or direct sound output to bypass the windows mixer and then go straight to your dac

 

 

and to the guy above me, download some volume vst's such as the l82 loudness maximizer, that one works really well with no distortion, its not free tho...but you can find it if you look hard enough for "free" lol im sure there are actual vst's out there that are genuinely free out there however

I have done so already. I expected that the foobar volume control would be disabled when using wasapi or asio, but this didn't happen. For this reason, I wonder about which level to set the foobar volume control and then forget about it afterwards.
