Editors' review

Extensive configuration options distinguish Foobar2000 from its competitors. Although most features of the program are not visible in the main window, a long list can be accessed through the main menu and in the Preferences section. Here you can configure, among other things, the display interface, disk writer, and album list, and even limit the CD reading speed.

The powerful equalizer and resampler are particularly impressive. Unfortunately, the program doesn't support the RM audio format, though it supports most others. Foobar2000 is likely to please those looking for a greater measure of control over their audio players.

    "Very Good Music Player"

    August 08, 2014   |   By neplusultraomni

    Version: Foobar2000 1.3.3


    Foobar is a music player, so it won't play videos, and therefore replace something like WMP or Winamp. As a music player it is very good. The sound quality is fine. This is a very lightweight player. It uses about 10,000 K of memory versus 60,000 K for WMP or Winamp. The CPU tends to run around 1% versus 5% for the other players. It does what it needs to do without slowing down your PC.


    1) No help files. So you have to learn by playing around with it.

    2) I wish it had better DSP plugins like a crystallizer. I downloaded a DSP set of plugins, but since there is no documentation, I'm not sure what some of them do and how to configure them to see if they are worthwhile.


    A great player for music files.
