TIDAL through foobar2000
« on: November 30, 2019, 11:39 »
Thanks to the post on Tidal's black friday offer, I just signed up for tidal hifi. I wanted to stream through foobar to take advantage of the foobar room correction plugin. Took a bit of research to come up with the setup below. I know by doing this it's no longer bit perfect.

Setup:
1. Win10 desktop PC running TIDAL Desktop App + foobar2000.
2. Install VB-CABLE software   https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/index.htm
3. Install foo_record plugin  https://foobar.hyv.fi/?view=foo_record
4. Setup audio path as follows:
   a. TIDAL Desktop App -> HIFI quality -> VB-Audio Virtual Cable (INPUT)
   b. VB-Audio Virtual Cable (OUTPUT) -> foo_record plugin (44k1 24bit) -> ASIO USB driver -> DAC


Looking for any feedback or suggestions to better optimize the playback.
