Aimp

Friday, December 4th, 2015

Aimp is a freeware music player with some additional features as standard. These do some useful things that you would usually have to find separate programs or plug-ins to perform. These include a converter, a tag editor, even an audio recorder!

You have the choice to either install the program to windows as usual or to install it as a portable program. It gives you the option to integrate it to the windows context menu, even if you choose the portable option. The player displays a dark theme as default, but this can be changed in the settings.

It includes an equalizer which has 22 presets or you can adjust the equalizer manually to make your own settings. The player can also auto adjust to presets for individual songs. The equalizer can also be hidden if you prefer. You can also use effects such as reverb, chorus, etc and even tempo and pitch!

When Aimp begins playback of a track, the song’s name and other details are displayed on top of the screen for a few seconds. They are also seen in the scroller area, with file details such as size, bitrate and sample rate. The player also shows links to the last three folders uses, for easy access to play recently heard tracks. It also has a search bar for searching the selected folder, simply search and hit enter to play.

As well as the usual features like shuffle and repeat, it also has an alarm clock and auto shutdown feature. These are great if you want to wake up or sleep to your favorite music. The cover art downloader is a nice inclusion too!

It has plug-ins available for additional features and it also supports visualizations for visual effects in time with the music, etc.

This is a very versatile program which will seem familiar to anyone who used to use Winamp before it finally stopped being updated. In some ways it may be even better, as it has a recording feature which is sure to come in useful if you regularly listen to internet radio stations through the program’s built-in online radio browser.

N-track studio is an audio mixing program capable of mixing multiple audio files to create the music you want. It provides a lot of features for mixing audio files, recording, and adding additional audio effects to enhance audio output.

It works a bit complicated compared to other audio mixing software mainly because of the complex features that are included in the program; therefore it is only recommended for users that are more advanced in audio mixing. Novices or beginners can also utilize the program’s features but they must read and fully understand the help files provided.

The program requires minimal hardware specifications; Pentium III or higher processor with frequency of at least 700 MHz, at least 512 MB of RAM and at least 50 MB free hard disk space. A soundcard must also be installed on your computer.

This program smoothly as long as your computer hardware and software complies with the minimum requirements.

It offers amazing features for you to get high quality audio output, but is not recommended for basic users and beginners. This is best for advanced users, professionals and expert in audio mixing and recording. If you’re a beginner, you can try the 10 days trial version before considering purchasing the product.

The KMPlayer – Your all in one media player?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Recently I’ve made a pleasant discovery: The KMPlayer. It’s not just another media player,but,in my opinion,very possibly the ONLY media player you will ever need.

How can I make such a bold claim?

The playback abilities are very impressive; It plays just about every video and audio format you’re likely to ever use (with its own internal codecs as standard, so no downloading messy codec packs!) and it’s very customizable. It can be skinned and a whole lot more (I tend to like the default skin anyway) with all key and mouse actions fully customizable.

It also has very good subtitle support, and a neat option to have the subtitles only show on the black bars, underneath your movie instead of over it. As far as audio goes, it has some features which are very directly infuenced by winamp such as the same kind of winamp options,playlist support and it’s even compatible with some winamp plug-ins! Audio streaming is supported too so you can listen to your favorite radio stations online.

It has a very extensive list of options which can be customized to your liking with just a little experimentation. I liked it so much, I uninstalled winamp and my dvd/media player. Maybe you will too? Let me know!

Check out the official forum where you can read more info and download the latest version.
