"No, it is spooled from RAM in either case. This is how computers work. "
I don't know what context you're talking about, but nothing goes directly from the hard drive to the CPU. The operating system will have a driver for disk access, meaning that data will pass through RAM controlled by the OS. And, of course, all hard drives these days have a significant amount of onboard RAM used for caching output.
RAM is better than Flash is better than HD is better than CDROM.
Use the foobar option "Full File Buffering".
All files are played out of RAM!
Alternatively you get yourself a ramdisk if you use a different player, such as JRMC.
My foobar player has got the at "full file bufferring upto (kb): 0
How do I correct this?
Just enter e.g. 80000kB. Should be sufficiant for a 8min wav.
If you run flac or even mp3 look up the your average file size and just fill it in.
I think you have to restart foobar to get it working.
You can check with the Task-Manager if the file is loaded.
RAM utilisation will increase by the loaded file-size, when
playback is started.
