... This is one sad news for me ...

i have great times with Winamp for years ... still remember my first time experience of mp3 ... with windows 95

i stop using winamp long time ago since i'm deaf right now ... and i'm no longer have time doing thing relate to music/sound anymore

same to this great forum ... i used to learn many many things from here with many such a great peoples who invented many thing that mostly peoples using today without knowing who behide the stuffs

btw i still rip my collections with EAC backup it with TAK+PAR2 and compress it to musepack ... for listen it some time via my ipod ...


i'm back to this forum sometime because i like this place ... where i beginning all audio stuffs understanding things about audio ... too bad i don't have good ear for enjoy sound again...


for winamp many great plugins like nsf with keyboard display ... i use it cooperate with tempo control to learn some nes music ...that really great like some spc plugins ...

if no winamp ... i think maybe we don't have foobar2k too smile.gif (sorry peter this is what i think .. also need to big thanks to you for foobar2k ...)

the cynic in me thinks a lot of winamp users are now going to buy PRO licenses now their software has been brought back from the brink. i doubt that would happen if the deal had been done before any kind of shut down announcements.

blink.gif strange, they removed it. Well, let's try http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/14/aol-sells...-audio-company/ then.

I don't fully follow. You mean as a thank-you?

If I caught his drift properly, I think he means it in a Streisand Effect kind of way.

Or for the warm old mp3 memories (Since no-one actually used winamp in last ~6 years?) ?

I'm not sure if it's only about memories. I've used Winamp back when Windows was my primary OS (but now it's not since *ages*). As far as I know they did Android version and now there is "there's more coming soon" text on winamp.com - maybe Linux release? Who knows...

I'm not sure why winamp faded in popularity the way it did. There is a wasapi plugin for it, and when I whimsically decide to experiment with AAC or Vorbis, it has FHG and autov encoders built in. It's also oodles more attractive out of the box than foobar, so it still has a permanent place on my pc.

Good night, sweet prince.
Winamp was what I switched to foobar from.

This.

It was a great ride with Winamp; six years during which I realized how much more it was to digital audio than I first thought. Winamp was the player that helped me learn about lossy and lossless compression, about tracked modules and variable bitrate, about the fun of visualization plugins and skinning. Back when various aspects of using a PC to do things was still a fun in itself rather than the status quo.

Now, foobar2000 it is!
