Hi Poon,

I have replaced my sound card with miniDsp USBStreamer. Player is using Foobar and thru Rearoute to Reaper and then to USBStreamer. I tried to play HD file using 24/192khz but Foobar reported it couldn't play 192000 file. Any reason? But i could play the HD file when connecting Foobar output directly to UBSStreamer.

Regards,
Gary

The ASUS sound card (7.1?) should be designed for Movies?
Then it's possible that sound card only accepts 48/96 signals.

Hi you succeed
foobar -> USBStreamer, 24/192
then trying this?
foobar -> ReaRoute -> Reaper -> USBStreamer
I think you should try this, with 24/192 sound track
Reaper -> USBStreamer
Then try
foobar -> ReaRoute -> Reaper -> USBStreamer

(I don't have USBStreamer.)

There's also another alternative that involves 2 sound cards and a standalone application doing the processing. Card1 will be designated as the default sound on the system. The physical output on Card1 will be looped back to the input on Card1 with a patch cable (preferably on the digital path to avoid unnecessary conversion to analog). Then a standalone program running on the PC will read the input from Card1, do the FIR processing and output the filtered signals on Card2's outputs. This way unprocessed data never reaches Card2's outputs.
Have you considered a simpler alternative using a single sound card?

1. Set up the sound card as the default audio destination in Control Panel->Audio. This way, all media player programs etc. will direct their output to it.
2. Select the same sound card as the source in your standalone program, then select Wave as the input for media players, or SPDIF, line in etc. for external sources. Or maybe you only have one choice which is 'Mixer'.
3. In your standalone program, select the sound card's outputs as the destination for your program's output.

I can't see the flaw in this. Except for the fact that consumer type sound cards often automatically route the inputs to the output, but even this may not be too serious because only two of your eight outputs (or whatever) are wasted. However, 'professional' cards allow you to turn off this preset routing in the supplied driver 'applet', and by 'professional' I mean Creative X-Fi and upwards.

Has the two card/virtual sound card 'meme' arisen because of this preset routing problem with consumer sound cards? It certainly threw me for a while, and I did consider the more complex alternatives until I bought one of the better sound cards and realised that everything was as it should be.

There are surely many ways to do this. All of them involve buying a better sound card.

Your implementation is actually one of the best I've seen so far.

It would be very nice to know which sound cards can do this, and which can't. In another thread, someone confirmed that their 'better' sound card (about 600 better) could certainly do it - but I can't remember what sort it was. It may turn out to be something that all modern cards can do, bar the ones built into PCs.

Hi Koon
I planning to update my computer with a graphic card GeForce GTX 680 or 670.
This card is cuda compatible.
Does VST_CUDAFIR01.dll will run with this card ?
What will be the latency at 44.1 khz ?

Best Regards
Jean Michel

Hi please try some CUDA sample programs first. then VST should work.
latency is always 1024taps = 1024/44100 = 23msecs in this VST.
(also other latency in VST host, ASIO driver etc)

In Reaper if you click the FX bypass button, it could be quite bad for a tweeter. So Ive worked out how to eliminate the button all together from a theme. (because i know i'll miss and click it by accident if its there)

Its just a matter of editing the rtconfig.txt file in the theme package.
