Is there any plugin, or any other way, to correct DC offsets from WAV files in Foobar2000?

For example, if you ever used WaveGain, it would calculate and correct DC offsets.

Applying ReplayGain in Foobar doesn't correct DC offsets, and it doesn't look like there are any DSP plugins that do it either.

Unless someone knows different?

You can use VST host for foobar (there are at least 2 or 3 available) and try some VST effect that does it.

Unless you're mastering, correcting the DC offset during playback is pretty useless instead. The only thing gained by its correction during mastering is the additional headroom that was lost when the recording went off center. The gain is usually below 1db. To avoid digital distortion when nearing 0db you're better off using replaygain, a limiter or setting pre-gain to a negative value in general.
