Editors' review

AIMP provides all the basic tools you'd expect from a media player. However, it evolves into something special once you discover its special features. It supports more than 20 audio formats and 32-bit digital audio, and it converts between various formats, too. You can also customize it with Winamp add-ons.

The program's interface felt instantly comforting. Its professional design is sleek, and all its command buttons are simple to navigate. We never felt confused or lost enough to require a visit to the Help file. The program's functionality isn't anything special because it simply lets you upload MP3s and play CDs using its standard controls. We had no problems doing either, and we were pleased with its crisp sound quality. However, this program came into its own with its lush variety of features. Its 16-band graphic equalizer was nice, but we only noticed a difference in sound when we used the presets. It also offered an Auto Shutdown feature where we could customize the time limit and action for shutting the program down. Most impressively, there was a feature for recording online radio, just like holding a tape deck up to the stereo in the old days. With all its pieces adding up to a superior product, we enjoyed every minute of using this program.

AIMP is freeware. It comes as a compressed file and leaves folders upon uninstalling. While its functionality is pretty standard, its features impressed us, and we recommend this program.

    "as a winamp lover, i am impressed, or probably in love"

    March 31, 2014   |   By baddy_3-

    Version: AIMP 3.55 Build 1324

    Pros

    - great sound. also very customizable with full blown dsp manager built-in.

    - lovely skins available at aimp.ru and deviantart. arguably the best skins among all media players combined. file-icon themes also available.

    - handy utilities - converter, library, tag-editor

    - full windows 7 integration and useful 'mini player' mode.

    - stable and light, cpu hardly ever spikes beyond 1% (wut!), memory stays between 5-10 mb marks.

    Cons

    - utilities don't inherit settings from main player. you have to open 'preferences' window in each of them and configure.

    - 'preferences' section is a bit hectic. this player behaves a bit differently so winamp immigrants may find that irritating. but have patience for first few minutes, go through all the settings and you are good to go. it is worth it.

    - built-in 'anticlipping' needs some more work. sometimes it supresses the fun part of the sound fluctuation for the sake of safety. dubstep ends up sounding more horrible than it already is. works fine otherwise.

    Summary

    enough of winamp comparison. aimp has a lot to set it apart from rest of the bunch. i have used aimp2 in past , aimp3 is miles ahead in terms of performance and refinement. if you need something fresh as your primary audio player, this one is a keeper. and no, there is no 'pro' version to pay for ;)

    None at this time.

    Summary

    You must pay careful attention to the support and HELP resources AIMP offers. Do that and you'll probably love it. AIMP os teally cool and it's FREE, so support them. BTW, with AIMP, iTunes becomes doubtful for the audiophile! Truly, AIMP is great sound re-pro and listening. GET IT AND SUPPORT THEIR SITE!

    Updated on Apr 18, 2014

    Well, in Russian AIMP is totally SUPERB! It begs the question WHY would want iTunes? I hope they have a site where audiophiles like me can make a donation for such superb audio software. It's free and really worth a serious try!
