    Ok, thanks. It sounds like I have to pull myself together and look into it. I've been staring at the default setup for years. It's getting a little long in the tooth. :)

    It is not as hard as it sounds and once you have the steps and procedures outlined you can install any skin easily and quite fast.
    I have all those above skins installed and I can select them easily.
    Might have took a bit of work to get them installed int he first place but now they are all there.

    Found some cool looking analog style VU meters. You can run them as a standalone application, in the Default UI or ColumnsUI interface of Foobar.
    You can have a look here, the info is in Russian so I Google translated it for the page:-> Link
    One of the main features i how configurable this plugin is.
    Here is a cool video of them being used in FoobarUI:-> Video
    If you want the plugins, you can get it here:-> Foobar VU Meter
    Other Resources for Vumeters, here are some different skins and will give you some ideas what is possible with this plugin;> VUMeter Skins

    Enjoy.

    Here are some cool examples

    Thank you so much for the excellent posts.
    I am trying to find a Columns UI skin to match the Default UI skin that I've customized as seen here:

    Unless you might have a better skin to try, I will try some of the ones you recommended and see if I can customize them to my liking.

    Glad I could help. Spend some time, check settings, try customizations. That is what it is all about. Figuring things out and customizing the software to get what you want.

    Post back your results when you get a chance.

    I've tried this and can't seem to figure out how it works. Here is the link to the theme/skin that I'm wanting

    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.
