foo_dsp_delta ~ Foobar2000 Noise Sharpening


A digital signal processor that makes dull songs sound sharper, as in brighter.

Strictly speaking, nobody really needs this DSP. It’s just that some people like the effect. If you want to compensate deficiencies in your playback equipment or listening environment, the convolver or the equalizer are more appropriate tools. ~ HA post

There are four interrelated DSPs enclosed, only use the last one, Noise Sharpening.

Noise sharpening can/should be used alone. ~ HA post

foo_dsp_dolbyhp ~ Foobar Virtual 5.1 Headphones


Dolby Headphone technology gives you the sound of a 5.1 surround system through any pair of headphones.

It accurately models the surround sound listening experience of a properly set up and calibrated 5.1-channel speaker system, making it ideal for personal and portable surround listening.

This component wraps the functionality of a Dolby Headphone engine DLL (typically DOLBYHPH.DLL bundled with some software DVD players) to be used under Foobar2000. After installation you must configure the plugin pointing out the location of that DLL in your system and restart foobar2000. Amplification is provided by the Dolby Headphone engine itself.

HA Forum Topic

Linear phase is a property of a filter, where the phase response of the filter is a linear function of frequency. The result is that all frequency components of the input signal are shifted in time (usually delayed) by the same constant amount (the slope of the linear function), which is referred to as the group delay. And consequently, there is no phase distortion due to the time delay of frequencies relative to one another.

foo_dsp_vlevel ~ Dynamic Normalization


VLevel keeps your music from making you jump out of your seat, and it keeps you from having to fiddle with the volume constantly. It’s different from other dynamic compressors because it looks ahead. You can think of VLevel as someone who knows your music by heart, and turns the volume up during quiet passages, but smoothly turns it back down when he knows a loud part is coming. It’s great for making CDs to listen to in your car, or to play background music on your computer.
