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.

Note that visualizations are incapable of modifying the audio stream.
The way a vis works is that it occasionally asks for copies of chunks of decoded audio which it may analyze and generate awesome looks from.
The only plugins that mutate audio streams are DSPs, and if you disable all the things that Peter mentioned, nothing will be mutilated.

Now, if your problem is that visualizations are showing "the wrong thing" by not knowing that the PCM stream they get isn't PCM, well, that's a different problem, and it should not have anything to do with playback.
