View Full Version : Foobar2000 question

2007-06-18, 03:02 AM
OKay, this may sound a little strange, but this week, I was convinced that I blew the speakers on my pc. They're not top-of-the line or anything, but a nice set of harmon/kardon w. a subwoofer. Everything I played on it be it a cd, or flac files sounded like complete shite. Really hissy and staticky. I use foobar as my audio program and it's worked great until lately.

When I played some wav files through CD Wave editor they sounded awesome! crystal-clear.Then I tried the dreaded windows Media player. Sounds great!

So it's not the speakers.

What would cause foobar to start working like crap all of a sudden? I've used it for the past 6 years with no problems. Anyone else have this experience?

Any input or recommended settings are appreciated. I'll probably reinstall it tomorrow, but just wondering.

Thanks in advance :)

I can't answer the question about why it would happen all of a sudden, but I will ask if you've tried to uninstall it and then reinstall it to see if that will fix the problem.

Thanks Lynne, I just reinstalled it, and now it's working fine! :thumbsup

Whew, I can't explain it, but I'm just glad it wasn't my speakers. It's just kinda weird because I hadn't changed any settings in a long time. Thought maybe another program might be F**'ing it up.

Oh well, still a mystery, but issue resolved!
