Enables decoding and playback of HDCD encoded CD's


I have created a DSP plugin that can decode HDCD encoded files. It is based on the HDCD decoder provided by the author of the foobar HDCD decoder (kode54).
When this plugin is enabled, and a HDCD encoded file (including HDCD encoded files that have been converted to a lossess format like FLAC or ALAC, WMA Lossless, but not TAK) will be decoded on-the-fly. The MusicBee status bar will show when a HDCD file is being decoded- if the file has peak-extensions enabled then that will show in the status message


  • Unzip into the Plugins folder where MusicBee is installed
  • Enable the plugin, either from the Equaliser and DSP window, or Preferences/ Player/ Equaliser & DSP
