  1. If anyone is interested: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/howto-vsts-loudness-virtual-zones-exclusive-mode-system-notifications-other-apps-sounds-all-together-oh-and-dirac-is-there-too-8/41949 Basically, it is leveraging the amazing EqualizerAPO while providing a workaround for it's one glaring weakness (going through the OS Mixer) using VoiceMeeter. EqualizerAPO developed specific support for VoiceMeeter API so in that case, it is not reliant on the Windows APO framework and will allow us to use WDM Exclusive Mode end-to-end. Example chain: Roon --[WDM Exclusive Mode]--> VoiceMeeter VAIO with EqualizerAPO --[WDM Exclusive Mode]--> Dirac DAP System output --> VoiceMeeter AUX VAIO with EqualizerAPO (set as default audio device) --> Dirac DAP Would prefer to use Dirac as VST under EqualizerAPO and simplify the chain but I don't have access to the Dirac plugins beta. Waiting for the new version. *In the past I used JRiver WDM driver for similar purposes but it had a really audible SQ degradation, cracks, pops, and generally unstable in my system to the point of being unusable. Anyway, I like EqualizerAPO better as a software DSP, at least functionality wise. And it's free

  3. Does big labels spoil the audio quality by over producing /mixing/ mastering? Or are there examples that proves this theory wrong? As an example I chose these 2 musically very satisfying albums. Adele;Amazon.com: Adele: 21: Music Carmen Gomes;http://www.soundliaison.com/ Adele ''21''; DRdata base score; min. 5, max. 8. Carmen Gomes ''Thousand Shades of Blue''; DRdata base score; min. 12, max. 15. That is almost 2 times as much dynamic range and Carmen Gomes, on that album, is singing softer than Adele. But of course it is also two completely different production methods; Carmen Gomes source;http://www.soundliaison.com/ Adele 21; source;Tom Elmhirst: Recording Adele 'Rolling In The Deep'
