Foobar, MediaMonkey or other?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Years ago I used Foobar solely, however the past couple of years I have only used MediaMonkey Gold. I am looking for insight as to which software is preferred for sq (all of my files are flacs)? I am also open to other software recommendations. Thanks in advance.

Give MusicBee and uLilith a shot.  I use MediaMonkey, uLilith, MusicBee and Foobar.  Most of the time though Foobar is my steady one.

 

Cheers!!!!!

I appreciate that. It has been awhile since I have used Foobar and from memory there are a lot of customizations. I will take a look at musicbee and ulilith. Thanks again.

Foobar with wasapi event.  Unless you're looking for digital EQ programs I don't think sound quality will be affected very much by what software you use.... especially if you're using wasapi/asio

Is asio supported by Foobar or just wasapi? What are the differences between them?

AFAIK Foobar comes with neither. You use plugins in foobar for both though. WASAPI is a Windows API and ASIO is a driver that I don't think comes with integrated audio and would have to be downloaded separately. There isn't really a difference between them since they both send info to the sound card, but ASIO requires certain drivers and WASAPI is windows only. I use AIMP3 because it comes with both standard without requiring a plugin.

Only thing I don't like about foobar is trying to organize my library. Vlc does it better but it doesn't have wasapi

If you are using digital eq (volume) or vst pulgins I find Jriver to be superior. Otherwise, all bit perfect players should sound the same.

I DO recommend you guys to use JRiver Media to play.
If you give any reason to refuse that player, you are tell lie !

Vlc and Foobar2000 also good but cant stand same line

Win comes standard with WASAPI

ASIO must be supported by your hardware otherwise it won't work

 

To the OP

There is lot you can download and try for free

MusicBee (free) and JRiver (paid with a 30 day trial) I can both recommend to try
