I guess it's possible but I doubt it.

I don't believe so. What I did to test this theory was to compile a special debug build of X-Fade with "special" code in it to write out to a pre-determined file the output of the transcoder functions it was passing through from the other plugins it was hooking. I compared the output of in_mp3.dll and in_bpopus.dll in a hex editor and using GoldWave, a program I purchased a LONG time ago, which allows me to open raw or otherwise headerless audio data files while specifying a format. For both files, I had to select "Floating Point" format with the attributes "IEEE Single Stereo" and both files played normally.

To me, a value above 1 and a value below 1 are two very different things, especially if you're talking about audio data where 1 has a special meaning. As for a theory, nope.

Not so much yet though. Still need more feedback from the other forum members who reported crash issues with metadata handling.
