Which fx functions?
« on: 28 Feb '18 - 13:49 »
I notice that there are audio fx in BASS, but also in BASS_FX. The latter are quite old (2014). If an fx is available in both, like compressor, which  one would be better as in quality, CPU usage, stability?

In the case of the compressor effect, I would recommend using the BASS_FX one (BASS_FX_BFX_COMPRESSOR2) rather than the DX8 one (BASS_FX_DX8_COMPRESSOR), as the DX8 effect can produce a lot of denormals (which BASS then has to remove to avoid a big performance hit).
