Foobar 2000 is a very small and minimalistic audio player. But, its modularity make me fall in love with it.These are the components that always will be installed whenever I reinstall foobar.
The Noise Sharpening DSP boosts high frequencies. The effect depends on the signal’s sample rate. Very handy for darky headphone owner such as AiAiAi TMA-1 therefore, other genre such as Pop, classic etc will not sound muddy. This can is great for RnB, Trance, Electronic and Dance music though (without Noise Sharpening). In short, this component will make your sound brighter.
Windows 7 Shell Integration:
Windows 7 shell integration addon (foo_w7shell) is a plugin to utilize brand new interface features like custom preview thumbnails, flyout toolbars and others.
You’d just unpack the plugin to your components directory. It works “out of the box” and adds nice and user-friendly interface features to your favorite player.
If you want, you can disable progress indicator, hide “stop” button from toolbar or perform some other tweaks via settings page. But you wouldn’t find any system settings – it’s as simple as your iPod.
- Album art in thumbnail
- Play/pause/stop/next track/previous track buttons in thumbnail
- Progress indicator
- Customizable jump lists
- Overlay icon to display play/pause state
ASIO 2.0 support. Great for those who own high end soundcard and prefer to use ASIO instead of default audio driver. Personally, I use ASIO component with my Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Platinum in Audio Creation Mode + Beat Match + 96KHz sampling.
