Mpc isn't really good with music, even with reclock and the audio filters. In my experiences, mpc distorts a whole lot earlier than foobar, and that really limits you on how loud the music gets. My advice is to use foobar2000 if you want to listen to music. If you still want to use mpc, then do this:
Open up configure reclock (start, programs, reclock, confirure reclock), and change the sampling rate to 192, and the bit depth to 24.
Right click on the audio icon in the taskbar, and click on playback devices. Navigate to your default playback device and go to the advanced tab. Select 192/24 on the dropdown box.
Also, go to the supported formats tab, and test all of the sampling rates your dac supports. For whichever one it supports, check it.
Now, on the MPC side of things, you'll need to download MadFlac
Once you have, extract it to your program files x86 directory (it can be anywhere, but let's keep stuff organized)
Click on the install batch file, and open up mpc.
Go to options, and go to the external filters section.
Add MadFlac decoder, put it at the top of the list, and set it to prefer.
For the FFDShow/LAV side of things, go to mpc, options, and external filters.
On whatever audio decoder you use, click on it in your list.
Make sure that any compatible bit-depths are selected (which is most likely up to 24 bits). For FFDShow audio, scroll down on the left side to the output section, and select any integer bit-depts that apply. Do the same for LAV audio if you use that.
That should be it.Edited by airisom2 - 4/14/14 at 7:07am
