Foobar2000 is an audio player with low memory footprint and native support for most popular audio formats.

Additional functionality available via a wide variety of plugins.

The program can edit song tags (album and song name, number, year etc.) based on the FreeDB Internet database and even rename the original songs based on these tags. A file format conversion tool is available, but must be enabled with external downloads. Can even fix some MP3s with corrupted file headers.

@Emka, sorry for the delay. No, I didn`t post on the forums.

Great player, especially with a few tweaks. I use Meier crossfeed[1] together with Dolby surround emulation[2]. What this does is it spreads the sound out, as if you're listening to a live performance, and greatly reduces ear strain when listening with headphones (which I do 99% of the time). Other pluses are that it uses my own music directory structure, is very fast (opens in a snap), and it uses windows native look instead of someone's idea of a great skin.

@shnbwmn: FYI, Viper4Windows is a free general purpose Windows sound processor that includes similar tweaks, among many others... (V4W homepage appears to be having issues currently, but Softpedia has it: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Other-AUDIO-Tools/ViPER4Windows.shtml). Also available as Viper4Android.

RolloSONIC v1.1.2

Midas on 25 Sep 2014

RolloSONIC is a modular sound-synthesis environment with mouse-guided tweaking and real-time module interconnection. Automated control channel duplexing, a variable-bandwidth control pipe, and multi-device euphony support various possibilities. Like the great module racks historically used in making sound effects for science-fiction movies, RolloSONIC lets you add and connect audio-processing modules together, where the sound is playing the entire time so that changes to the interconnections and changes to the sliders are heard immediately -- just like with the real thing.

The program takes the idea to the next level by letting you incorporate your mouse movement into the control channels. Optionally, you can also incorporate your USB or MIDI (musical) keyboard controller and its knobs and sliders into the mix of control data.

The existing introduction video is highly recommended.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8

Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download RolloSONICv[version number].exe to a folder of your choice (except %PROGRAMFILES%) and launch.

  • Changes include ability to set the on-screen mouse origin.
