Summary: the main purpose is to convert an LPCM signal, but even more exciting is the Noise Sharpening DSP.
The noise sharpener adds noise in the inaudible range to increase resolution in the audible range. So more noise shaping->more noise->more audible resolution.
It's the audio equivalent of using an image sharpening filter on your pictures. It makes audio files sound "sharper" (clearer). You WILL notice the difference.
1) put the dll in the components folder of your Foobar2000.
2) Open Foobar2000, go to the DSP manager and put "Noise Sharpening" on the Active DSP list. Make sure its at the top.
3) On Noise Sharpening settings, slide the bar to 50-125%. (Whatever sounds reasonable, I think 50% for beginners, 75-100% for others?)
4) Play any audio file and notice the increased clarity. Activate it and deactivate it while its playing over and over to see the difference.
In sum...I can't see how I didnt use this before.
foo_dsp_delta can be found on this page.
Or since its only 11kb, I mirrored it with an attachment. Enjoy!
