The one feature that foobar does not have over iTunes is a ratings system (i.e. 1-5 stars).

 

This one feature kills Foobar for me as I can't quickly sort my songs to my most favorite tunes when I just want high rated songs/not feeling experimental.

 

Because of my massive library, I usually put my iPod on shuffle and rate songs I like with 4-5 stars. I can discovery new fresh songs this way and then replay them because of the high rating. This awesome feature is absent when I want to translate the ratings to foobar. -_-

 

Why is it so difficult to add in a star ratings column on foobar?  I've looked all around and experimented and have been unsuccessful.

 

I want to use foobar because of the sound quality and FLAC, but itunes is much more user friendly.

 

For me, itunes interface makes it the superior program to boot.

 

If someone could explain the most simplest way to add star ratings to foobar I would greatly appreciate it.

foobar2000 does have a rating system, with a component created for that purpose alone. It can be found here: http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_playcount

Hey, I need some foobar help. I have both the wasapi and asio, but asio sounds significantly different. The bass is way more pronounced and full, and everything is much louder and the soundstage seems more closed in. Is wasapi not working correctly? I thought they should sound identical. Or is ASIO the one not working correctly?

Not all devices behave the same with WASAPI, KS and ASIO, but output quality should be the same between them, as bitperfect playback sounds the same, and if it doesn't, then something is changing the original bits, therefore breaking bitperfect playback.

I agree with the title of this thread 100%   I used iTunes since Mac OS 9 and switched to Foobar2000 last year.
