A very advanced mp3 and general audio player supporting tagging, visualizations and Winamp plugins

A review of foobar2000 by Fernando Ortega

For programs like this, a lot of people would normally use resource-intensive programs like iTunes which have graphics-rich interfaces. Like the original version of Winamp, foobar2000 has opted for a simple yet sleek interface which uses little system resources while playing your music collection.

With this audio player, you can very easily and very simply playback your music. Unlike the very crash-prone programs like iTunes, foobar2000 does not crash which means hours of enjoyment. All you have to do with this program is add mp3 files to your playlist and start playing them. The left panel gives you access to the file properties where you can edit the ID3 information about your files.

Like other mp3 players on Windows, this one includes some visualizations of the music that you're currently play but in our experience, doesn't slow down a thing.

foobar2000 includes an equalizer, a ton of different user preferences, a DSP manager and a fully-featured media library which means foobar2000 doesn't lag behind other players in the scene, despite its simple interface.

Overall, if you want a music player which runs fast on Windows and you're not scared by the lack of graphics, we highly recommend foobar2000.
