I recently purchased a new dac, and with MusicBee there is now the problem that a fraction of the beginning of a song is cut-off.
It's only a tiny bit, but just enough to mute the attack of the first piano/drum/guitar note.
I have tried all possible settings, and I found that it is possible to solve this issue by increasing the buffer, but that will only work when directsound is selected.
But for asio or wasapi the buffer seems to have no effect on this problem at all.
I then tried foobar2000.
The main 'Buffer length' setting there also didn't solve it.
But then under 'advanced' I found a secondary buffer setting, named something like 'hardware buffer setting for wasapi event mode' (you can also set a separate buffer for 'push' mode)
Increasing that from 25ms to 100ms immediately solved my issue.
So it looks like the existing buffer setting in MusicBee is not enough to solve some issues with asio/wasapi.
That seems to need some 'hardware' buffer setting.
So, that's my request.
I just noticed that the settings.ini has an entry for this, but changing the value there from 0 to 100 (or 1000) doesn't do anything.
So that might be a bug?
