Hi,
I play all my lossy and lossless music with Foobar2000 1.2.2. But the sound seems to be undulating, as if someone is constantly playing with the volumecontrol. Really irritating.
It seems to have started when I downloaded and integrated the equalizer. Any views on this?
Thanks in advance.

Wow, never considered this solution.

Tried it and it works. Thanks a lot.

Do you mean the auto levelling? If so, glad to help!

I don’t mean to indicate that positive gain will always cause the signal to exceed 0 dB (and thus introduce clipping or other adverse effects), as it does of course depend upon the signal in question, but it’s most definitely something to watch out for whenever EQing. One could perhaps offset the overall decrease of an auto-levelled EQ curve using careful manual adjustment or a separate gain control, but it depends on how much you need the extra volume in software and how confident you are in your ability to tweak to a final volume. Definitely the safest option is never to gain anything positively/past 0 dB.
