Hi all.
I was wondering what your feelings are towards the audio quality of the mixer-bypass WASAPI driver in w8. I've been listening to CD and 128/256 streaming radio using 1.1.13 and I think that the sound quality is lovely. Bright and clean sound which can be amp'd loud without any perceived distortion. Is W8 using some new device driver (like WDDM 1.2)?

Try and follow any instructions offered by the author. Each skin is different and the instructions I posted are basically for the skins listed.
Try and figured it out, if you can't let me know and I will see if I can get it installed and write up a guide for you.

Hope that helps.

Running windows 8, and just put on foobar. Any optimal setting I want to make right off the bat? Should I be using WASAPI?
I have an ASUS DX sound card, with 2.1 Logitech speakers if that helps.

Sure, many prefer output plugins like WASAPI, ASIO, KS as they offer bitperfect playback. Experiment though and find out what sounds and works beat for you.

since this is also a question thread about foobar I have one. I've been using WMP for the last 5 years now, give or take. Why do you guys choose foobar? it's obviously more customizable, but does it also sound better? I know there's output plugins for it, but they exist for WMP too. Just curious.

Main reason for me: WASAPI and ASIO support for bit perfect playback. In terms of UI WMP is close to perfection in my opinion (with waveform seek bar and WASAPI/ASIO it would).

Somewhat happy with Kameleon for now, shame the lyrics don't work, so I removed that panel



yeah I know, some sh1tty low bitrate, but been working on re-ripping my audio collection slowly now that I have a decent sound card and headphones etc...


EDIT: ok, I really like Kameleon, but can't get the lyrics working on it, no matter what. and if I remove the lyrics panel, it'll always come back when I restart Foobar, annoying. other than that, it's perfect. Oh, about Wasapi settings, I'm using WASAPI (event), what are you guys using? I feel it has a tiny bit more punch than push, which sounds a bit more "relaxed". Buffer length at 1000ms, what does that do? And Output data format at 24-bit with my SB Z, that's correct, right?

eclap, buffer length in foobar decides how quick equalizer changes etc. sets in, just set in low and don't worry about it.

between wasapi, ds, ks, asio etc. i sometimes hear a difference in sound quality, but it's not a big deal imo. usually i just stick to ds (direct sound).

Can someone help me a bit? I'd like to create view that shows tracks based on remixer first (if tag is available) and then based on track artists and then based on album artist. I've added remixer tag to some of my tracks but I have troubles getting Foobar to recognise it.


I'd add it as one view sorting option.
