Title: [+] [2334] DirectSound output device missing
Post by: s/ash on October 13, 2021, 00:52:31
I just updated to 2334 from 2324, and found that DirectSound output device is missing.

Есть такое (Windows 10).

DirectSound is unavailable on Windows 10 and newer because of stability reasons. Anyway, starting from Windows Vista the DirectSound output method is just a wrapper around WASAPI

But is there a way to change the parameters to 44.1KHz and 32-bit float now? I never had any problems with DirectSound on Windows 10. Without 32-bit float I get sound clipping whenever using any DSP, and the volume normalization feature adjusts the volume too slow. 32-bit float was doing a perfect job here.

For now the solution seems to run AIMP in compatibility mode, it brings back that ability on Windows 10, but it's nnot a great solution.

Soolo, but the system panel won't allow me to use 32-bit float. I get to choose only between 16-bit and 24-bit, which for output both are fine, but for mixing not the best.

why?
AIMP does the conversion 16>32f or 24>32f
mixer can do that too if it need

For sound processing, without 32f you may end up with audio clipping.

Maybe I'll end up using that if I have no other choice. It's still adjusting the volume slower than 32f.
