Default Winamp: using 2 DSP plugins at the same time ?

See the topic again. Doable ?

Edit: Ok, these are called "DSP Stackers". I'm now testing some to see which is better on the listening and CPU.

I just love the "iZotope Ozone" plugin for winamp, but also wanted to use a "replay gain" plugin. I don't feel like using Mp3gain to work on 80 gigs of mp3s, so I wanted to use, with ozone, a dsp/output plugin that would play all my songs at the same volume.

Can someone explain (in idiot's terms) what a DSP is, exactly?

It's an output plugin for Winamp, allowing you to process and tweak how things sound (such as dynamically changing the volume to make sure one song doesn't play louder than others).

Sort of like an equalizer?

They can be, but they can also have other more varied features (for example, I once used one that sped up/slowed down playback).

DSP = digital signal processing or in this case sound processing.

There are also chips called DSP(-rocessor). I have experimented with the blackfin chip which had video and sound capabilities some years ago.

Well. In the area of musicprograms like winamp a DSP is some kind of extension or addon as posted before. It manipulates the sound stream before it reaches your speaker or more exactly your soundcard.
The more complex the effect of the DSP the more CPU/RAM power you need.
So be careful when you want to use many effects at once.

Some of these addons might emulate features which are normally provided by special chips. The Creative Labs Soundblaster effects are partially enhanced by emulated features. I had a soundcard from Trust I think, which was just standard, but a software DSP from the manufacturer emulated 3D sound.
