    I went back to 3.8.0. and set the pipeline WAVs also to -3dB. Main volume is on -12 dB and gets red. No matter what content I play. I got an idea that the trouble could be caused by some implementation change in processing of configuration files and reusing old configuration, which I created years ago yet for v3. I renamed settings.xml in %LOCALAPPDATA%\HQPlayer, restarted, newly configured all from scratch and now it is working!

    I am curious ... for test I installed also 4.7.2 and faced with the same issue, then when I returned to 4.5.1, the issue disappeared. I will let you know in few minutes.

    Yes, I checked that the convolution thing was not enabled. I updated my previous post with correct zip file.

    Sorry, I took them from a multichannel set and make a mistake ... Here they are: IRC_1006_C_R0195-stereo.zip

    I'm not using my own measurements. The procedure is: 1. Choose your head http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/salles/listen/sounds.html Let's your head is 1055 2. Download zip for head 1055 http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/salles/listen/download.html Extract stereo HRTF files for source 30 degrees left and 330 degrees left (that means 30 degrees right) 3. These two stereo IR WAVs can be directly set in foobar stereo convolver, JRiver etc. For use with HQPlayer you need to split them to mono WAVs for example in Audacity or SoX - see the picture Mean

    Hi Miska, I have troubles with Matrix Pipeline and my HRTF WAVs after attempt to upgrade from an half an year old version to 4.8.0. In HQPlayer 3 as well as older versions of HQPlayer 4 the IR WAVs behave the same. With mostly about -2 or -3dB gain correction per source channel they work perfectly. An example are IR WAVs form the EU Listen project we discussed years ago: The 4 IR WAVs form the picture are attached: IRC_1050_C_R0195.zip The volume matching between the recording and IR WAVs is somehow broken in newer HQPlayer versions. The same settings with the same IR WAVs as
  7. Drink, but don't stream from Tidal. Don't buy MQA capable hardware. Backup your lossless / hires collection. Download new true lossless and hires content.
  8. I don't have 1.6.2 installed, but my portable installation of v1.5.5 works without issues with DSD Processor 1.1.4 and Super Audio CD Decoder 1.2.3. In portable installation mode you can install foobar2000 as many times as you wish. https://www.foobar2000.org/old To test without DAC you can play into 'Null Output' device.
  9. There is typo in the example, substitute --pi=1k -> --pi1k=1 See the Usage guide page 17 John suggests to use it in most cases. In my case it made my recording too dark, so I omitted it.
  10. If you don't need channel mixing (that's the typical case) then IMO you can use any of the two possibilities. Matrix processing gives you more possibilities which you don't need for room corrections - channel mixing, stacking more convolutions, creating presets and easy switching between presets. For example with channel mixing and no convolution IRs you can do multichannel to stereo processing (see picture in HQPlayer manual). More advanced example is stereo to binaural or multichannel to binaural processing for headphones. That requires both channel mixing and convolution. S

    What happens when you connect for example your ADI-2 PRO having also USB digital input ? [img][] This picture shows ADI-2 as digital to digital converter. ADI-2 is connected to computer USB type A port. I suppose HQPlayer can see ADI-2 digital input over USB. Could you please explain the difference between these 2 cases (computer with device side USB B port vs D/D or D/A device connected traditionally through USB type A ? I think the answer is that computer simply sees USB device in both cases regardless on if the device USB type B port is local or remote. Becaus

    My info was based only on this: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/19715-hq-player/?do=findComment&comment=1088876 Perhaps Miska could elaborate what for devices he had in mind. I tried the HQPlayer digital input only with a virtual audio cable (to play from other apps on the same computer to HQPlayer).

    In the Desktop version: File -> Settings -> Input device settings - similar to Output device settings. I didn't try it but it is here ...

  15. Hi John, I am searching for more explanation what the layers mean. Does it mean something like when more tapes are added into the mix and they were encoded by Dolby A or something similar, then that Dolby A of every tape used creates an additional layer? Could you please explain also the values (-46dB, -36dB, -26dB, -16dB, -56dB, -46dB, -36dB) ... why exactly these and whats the reason of 10dB delta? The answer is probably related to information I found in Wikipedia about Dolby A: Does it mean something like that with -46dB the tool expands dynamics of the original recordin
