First post here but here you go.

I'm using DarkOne 3.0.1 with a few small tweaks.

I gotta find out.

How do you set up a rating system on foobar? Like a proper star system a la Windows Media Player? If it's possible it would make F2K surely perfect. I've tried again and again and it just doesn't seem t work. If you can provide components and simplish instructions that would be really helpful.

 

I'll post my set up later, i'm still getting it set up cuz i migrated to another computer.

My roommate just adds an extra metadata field to his songs and rates them on a 1-100 scale.

 

(I find that to be mathematically unbalanced, since, according to him, he'd never listen to/own any songs that he would rate < 50, which totally skews his statistics...)

Here is a theme I downloaded.  Pretty clean and functional I think.

You might want to check out foo_playcount.  Keeps track of when each file was added to the library, how many times it has been played, when it was last played, and a 5 star rating system.  http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_playcount

I've always thought about doing lyrics, but then I'd have to go and look for lyrics for my songs, and that sounds like work. D:

 

Though, seeing all these layouts with a waveform seek bar... going to add that to my setup. :D

Not sure how accelerated waveform plugins have been evolving lately, but when I last checked them, months ago, they weren't optimized enough and used more system resources than they actually required. But it certainly is a nifty thing :)

f2k's holding stable at under 180MB of RAM for me, so I'd say that's no big deal.

 

Firefox, on the other hand, is leaking up to 2GB again...

First of all, that a ton of RAM being used for foobar basshead.gif Mine uses less than half of that but, truth be told, I focus very little on UI features (that seem to consume more resources than they should) and a lot on components and VSTs, which are more CPU than RAM intensive.

 

Second, Firefox 4 leaks more RAM due to addon developers not having optimized their FF4 versions, and I mean haven't optimized at all. I was forced to disable several addons in order to close a severe memory leak that ended up using all available memory.

A very good reference guide on current state of addons is this: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/performance/

Yeah, I'm told I run a pretty heavy f2k setup, but I actually don't run all that much visualization stuff (though, I do have the shpeck component installed, if not currently in use...)

Oh, I wasn't even talking about shpeck, which isn't RAM intensive, but CPU and GPU intensive. You'll see what I mean when you start using the waveform bar (assuming the plugins are in a similar state).

Another DarkOne user here.

If you couldn't tell, album art is important to me. I have a 28 inch monitor. Also, I have yet to update the album art of this to a better scan.

28" and you're running it at 1920x1200? Sadness.

 

Disregard the above, I wasn't thinking 16:10. Herpderp.
