  • Winamp or Foobar2000

    Which is the best audio to use with RR ?
    I will be doing the usual media...songs, movies, DVD, CD...but have the system setup as 5.1 using 2 separate amps for front & rear.
    RR debug reports 5.1 channels but RR Carwings Lite with Winamp does not have separate front, rear, centre & sub volume controls in it like I saw in someone's audio skin for Foobar with the 18-band graphic.

    Audio player+EQ is one thing and Audio mixer is another. Foobar has reputation for high quality audio but for most people with on board audio and average audio equipment (like me) any difference would be hard to distinguish - you should probably test it yourself. The EQ in Foobar has more bands than winamp, then the again 10 bands from winamp are enough for most people - you can use Foobar's 18 band EQ but you'd need to have a matching skin for it.

    Regarding the audio mixer (volume controls) if your windows mixer shows controls for Front/Rear/Center/Sub you can most definitely control those from within RR but again you may need to customize the skin to show the controls available to you. The standard skins likely only have 10 band EQs and the most common volume controls (Master/Wave/CD/etc).

      Thanks Guino.
      Creating the extra controls on the skin is understandable but how do I find what these controls need to manipulate in Winamp so that I can give it a try?

        one thing is the foobar's DSP plugins... some really nice ones!

        im on foobar now... i really like it
        i set up the 31 band Eq, and output channel mixer, so i can "upmix" 2channel to 2.1channel and you could copy 2 channel to 4channel too
        very powerfull

        if there was a line in plugin, would make it rock!
        -Thanks

              Actually I'm using Foobar because of the higher output quality and DSP functionality, but there is still one issue remaining with large files >10min. Navigating using the slider and resume doesn't work. Checked already carwings skin and did a fresh allover install, switching to SSD and new motherboard.

              as a test you can use a long remix http://promodj.com/download/4066935/...odj.com%29.mp3
