AIMP 2.09

AIMP Classic is a powerful audio player that allows you to listen to your favorite music with an outstanding sound quality. Its appearance resembles that of another classical audio player (Winamp), so you'll get used to it very quickly. It can also be customized with skins. The program includes a 18-band equalizer, a visualization window to display rhythmic visual effects and a playlist editor to organize your audio files. A nice fading effect makes your list of songs look like an endless music loop and a handy volume normalizing feature avoids drastic volume changes between tracks. Also, the player's main functions can be conveniently controlled by global hotkeys. Besides playing music, AIMP Classic features three extra utilities which also enable you to record any sound on your computer, convert audio files from one format to another and view or edit tags. AIMP Classic is based on the well-known audio engine BASS, so it's easy to connect new plug-ins (from the plug-in library included in the program) and expand the player's functionalities.

Have nothing to say about AIMP. I used it long time ago, when I was in trying everything fase, but can't remember anything about it
Anywho, I still use and enjoy QMP.

every time i use Foobar, I feel like I am programming. dry interface with geeky experience.

i gotta agree here... cause foobar (even though lite on resources) it just aint that great overall... i still prefer winamp lite over foobar without question.

foobar is just to big on screen where as winamp is nice and compact etc etc.

That ugly sucker gives me the best sound, pre-tweak, than any of the others. I also love its equalizer...for whatever reason, I can dial that thing in to perfection.

me personally, i just stick with Winamp Lite and select the preset of "Full Bass & Treble" i think without getting into any major tweaking that offers the best overall sound if you ask me.

cause the way foobar's interface is setup it's to bulky on screen and to much messing around with it to get it right where as winamp's default interface is much better setup vs something like foobar's is.

my main complaint (lately) with Winamp Lite is it jumped alot in installation size vs the winamp lite's from not long ago... they used to be about 1MB... lately it's been about 5-6MB.... the regular versions of winamp suck if you ask me as they have to much bloat etc etc.

with PanelsUI, foobar2000 can be transformed from a bulky and dry interface to a very compact, functional, beautiful and sexy one. and with plugins such as Lyric Show Panel, Album Art Panel, Pretty Pop UP, Info Box, and many others you'll have a feature rich player, with always the best sound quality (24bit playback, 18-band EQ, Kernel Streaming, etc.).

I love Jet audio, this is competitive tho... I really like AIMP as well. Hey this may be a collectors item soon as I'm pretty sure its Russian and I think Putin just re-elected himself indefinitely.

How do this compare to Cowon's Jet Audio? Jet Audio offers a free version that has very good features, plus it will play any audio and video format on the market! Might just be me, but I think I will stick with Jet Audio.

Try it :)

I've switched some time ago.
Aimp v1.x was a lot faster as v2 but it's still quite fast to start.

You loose a few features but it all depends on how important you find them.

seems solid, BUT how does this compare to Winamp "lite"? ... cause i think Winamp lite is the best mp3 player out there... and i would consider switching but if i did i would want something lighter on resources if i did but still a similar look to winamp and features. (like equalizer etc etc)

Winamp (IMO) is the best player on windows

Amarok (IMO) is the best player on linux

Now I only need a decent native Mac player and i'm sorted.
