There's no version of foobar2000 for Mac OS X. Are there any specific features of foobar2000 that you want from a Mac program?

well, i'm not totally sure. I'm not too familiar with foobar and what it does...i was just going to learn from trail and error if i could use it with a mac.

i guess i just want to improve the sound quaility of my music from my computer. i guess better eq's or something is what i was going for. is there anything else for mac that will do this?

The big motivation for Foobar -- generating bit-perfect output through kernel streaming or ASIO -- is not needed on Macs, because they are bit-perfect by default.

Because of this, most people on OS X just use iTunes.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any. 10 bands on the equalizer isn't enough?

Hmm, you can fiddle with OSS 3D if you like to play around. But be warned, this gizmo has repeatedly been troublesome to be after iTunes updates. So if your Mac's iTunes keeps crashing after an update, remove OSS 3D.

Otherwise, anyone using iTunes on a Mac wants to look at iVolume.

OSS 3D was very buggy on iTunes 7, and the with the developer's attempt at making OSS 3D usable with other apps, not just iTunes.
The latest version, 2.09, is pretty stable, with a few people experiencing bugs. If OSS 3D is still not totally stable, it will be before long. The developer is conscientiously working on it.
I'm using the latest version....it works fine for me. You can download the app to try it out, here: http://subband.com

VST on Mac

I am also trying to use foobar on mac, because in windows i could use VST plugins for listening mp3's. (together with rearoute). Is there on Mac an mp3 player who could host vst plugins?

I use Audio Hijack Pro for AU plugins. It can also handle VST and two other types. It can tap into any audio stream including iTunes.

It's meant more for recording system audio but all I use it for is the plug-in support.
