Would it be possible to add an option in advanced preferences that would add a bypass channel to foobar audio_chunk interface skipping DSP chain and Volume control?

The idea is that this channel should directly deliver unchanged sound data to output device (like WASAPI or ASIO) without going into DSP and Volume Control chain. This way it will be possible to add true DoP mode without needing to resort to ASIO or WASAPI Proxies.

I've no idea about the innards of Foobar so if this is against any TOS or policy I'm sorry and please any admin move it to the bin or delete it. Ditto if it belongs in another sub forum.

audio_chunk was specifically designed to carry PCM data only and will not be changed to carry anything else; using it to carry any data other than plain PCM is broken by design. Further than that, it cannot possibly be changed without breaking component compatibility.
