Dfx

I'm wondering if the DFX is being encoded onto my burned cd's. It doesn't sound like it. I have it listed in the box for DFX plug ins but the sound is soooo bassy on my computer but not so on my recorded cds that I play on my portable. Can anyone help?

Actually you can record DFX ontoCD's for playing on audio equipment. I neglected to scan the DFX site for the info. Here it is (little complex, but once you do it a few times, it's a snap and the sound is sooo great!!:

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Launch Winamp and prepare a playlist of songs you want to burn with DFX enhancement.
2. Set DFX to your desired sound enhancement levels for playback.
3. On the Winamp menu, select Options -> Preferences

1. Under Plug-Ins -> Output, select "Nullsoft Disk Writer plug-in..."
2. Click the Configure button and select the output directory to where the WAV files will be saved. Click OK to save your settings.
3. Click the Close button to finish configuring and exit the Winamp preferences window.

4. Winamp is now set up so that when you start playing your playlist, the output will go directly to WAV files rather than being played. During this process, there will be no sound output and the the track slider will move faster than normal. When output of your playlist is complete, you will have DFX-enhanced WAV files located in the output directory. WAV files are uncompressed so make sure there is enough space on your hard disk.

Click the Play button on Winamp to start outputting the MP3 playlist to DFX-enhanced WAV files.

5. Use your CD burning program and CD burner to make an audio CD from your enhanced WAV files. The resulting audio CD will be playable on your home stereo.
6. Once finished be sure to restore Winamp's normal playback mode:

1. On the Winamp menu, select Options -> Preferences
2. Under Plug-Ins -> Output, select "DirectSound output..."
3. Click OK to save your settings.
4. Click the Close button to save and exit the Winamp preferences window.

Any one having trouble with the DFX plug in in the Winamp 5.6 program. I can't seem to get it not to freeze up when I try to add it after I load the Winamp. Has anyone found an equalization program as good as DFX for use with Winamp

have you made sure you're using the latest version of dfx? though really any stability issues need to be directed to them to investigate / fix as is the case for any 3rd party plug-ins (as dfx is). otherwise i don't remember seeing anyone else from the last few months mentioning dfx around here.
