I never said that.

Foobar2000 can do HTTP streams, and supports UPnP. As a result remote control and streaming works perfectly, even to iDevices. It's just a different app.
I you specifically need to use those programs, then your point is valid, but otherwise foobar2000 does WORK.

It doesn't really matter, but I just love foobar2000 so much that I'm a bit vocal about it.

Audio-processing-wise, I'm not seeing the advantage of foobar over itunes right now.  It's crashing my VST plugins left and right using its included VST wrapper and the only one that works, George Yohng's, only supports one plugin.  My usual processing chain now consists of a spectral compressor and Electri-Q, and I'm having to take it out to Virtual Audio Cable and VSTHost to do that anyway...

Yes, but foobar2000 has a user configurable UI, and I made it look exactly like I want myself now. If itunes can look the same, then I shall admit defeat, but I doubt it.
Besides, when I made the jump to foobar2000 from itunes (I actually used winamp for some time as well), itunes was horrible. It ate up a crapton of RAM (>300MB), probably all because I had 100k songs in my library back then. It also took multiple minutes to start up. It was ridiculous.
I don't doubt it's improved since then (this was 4 years ago)

ok... well I don't give a rat's ass about UI either way.  Never changed foobar from its default rolleyes.gif

 

I guess it's good to use foobar over itunes just so you know you are pretty much getting your input signal out pretty much the same, without hidden stuff like Sound Enhancer getting in the way.  And stuff like WASAPI bit perfect output--like I care about that tongue.gif

I don't use foobar2000 for sound quality. That doesn't make any sense in my opinion.
Though I would definitely hate some mysterious behind-the-scenes feature alter my sound in a way I'm not 100% aware of.

I use iTunes for convenience with my iOS devices and iTunes Match. And it just so happens that iTunes 11 came out yesterday and has a great UI that I've been wanting for a long time. It'll never have as small a footprint as foobar. Ever. It'll never use as little RAM. But what do I care? On a Mac iTunes isn't nearly as slow as it is on Windows, from my experience. And I also have 16GB of RAM. iTunes hogging a little more than a music program should is no big deal. Plus I don't just use it for music. Video is quite important. Mainly anime.

Hmm wine. It pissed me off so i just used parallels. Then parallels pissed me off so i used congruence. Then that pissed me off so i used bootcamp

Can you sync an iPod with foobar?
I downloaded the latest update on 2 of my computers, but I haven't played around with it too much.
I'll let you know my impressions when I sync my iPod tonight...
Youcan sync with mediamonkey i thinkz

MERICUH

No way! Pretty much all iTunes anime is dubbed. No thanks! I use iTunes to watch MP4 videos. Apple is annoying and doesn't support MKV, but MP4 videos play just fine on my iPad. Great when I'm on the go.

 

Android tablets have the advantage of being able to play MKV and being widescreen, but I prefer the iPad for a few reasons. I've had more issues w/ apps crashing in Android. I've had issues w/ skipping audio when playing MKVs. Issues getting subtitles to display properly. Subtitles worked fine in the app that had the audio skip issue. But other programs that had no audio issues didn't display the subs properly. The browsing experience is also better in iOS. I can have 8+ tabs open on my iPad, no problem. But with the Transformer Pad I used to own.. More than 1 and the device started getting bogged down and any browser I tried would end up crashing often.

You mentioned QOTSA, but do you know Kyuss?

 

If you have nothing against Polish language, debut album of Luxtorpeda is nice. The second, "Robaki", not so much. Although it still has like 3 nice songs.

 

I like Rise Against, too. They were kind of "Melodic Hardcore" back in the day, but sadly they lost it and started playing Melodic Punk instead. I'd suggest "Revolutions Per Minute" from them, which belongs to the former style.

 

You don't really have many plays of Boris, so maybe try "Akuma No Uta"?

 

Fugazi?

 

You mentioned some rather retro-like bands, so you can try The Brew. A friend of mine said they're "kinda Jimi Hendrix meets Led Zeppelin". She nailed it.

 

Since we're talking "retro" and "distorted", Blue Cheer are awesome as well.

 

Maybe Raw Power by Iggy & The Stooges, but I can't wholeheartly recommend it, since it's the only album by The Stooges that I haven't heard. I only know the famous song "Search And Destroy" out of this one...

 

 

 

Also, wat?:

The only player that might be chosen for SQ reason is probably J-River Media Centre.  Native VST support, 64-bit internal processing... just downloaded it and found that Electri-Q doesn't support 64bit processing.  And so far I see no indication that I can step down the internal processing to 32bit for legacy plugins >_<

I've checked out Kyuss once, but I didn't like it then. I found it dull and boring to be honest, but I might check it out a second time.

Doesn't really look like my kinda thing after checking out a song or two.

That song is pretty awesome, seems worth checking out its respective album.
Boris is one of those artists I have downloaded a long time ago but never really listened too. It's not in my library anymore though.

When did I do that?
I just have a fetish for some early prog and the Beatles, but generally not really. Don't listen to Hendrix that often, and I dislike Led Zeppelin.

I just listened to one of their songs and it seemed pretty sweet, but I'm still gonna pass since if I download too much new music in one go, I'll neglect half of it, whereas if I keep the amount small, I can still listen to it all.
