It's been a while since I've seen a thread like this, so I figured I'd float a simple question out there: What does foobar2000 do for you that no other player does?

For me, one such feature is the fact that I can confidently use foobar2000 as a basic mastering step when converting from high sampling-rate and/or high bit-depth down to CD audio or MP3. This is thanks to foobar2000's wonderful dither, limiters, resamplers, and streamlined conversion process.

Converted from Winamp because with 5.5 that totally went the wrong way, interface-wise.

Dealmakers:
- Multi-playlist
- Spectrograph visualiser (yea, I like it)

Why I got to love it:
- Far more powerful item management inside playlists and display customisability
- Extremely quick without (too-) quirky menus/buttons and non-standard interfaces and interactions.
- Layout Editing Mode
- No goddamn Winamp Agent
- Automatically Fill Values
- Autoplaylists
- Undo/Redo of playlist operations (oh darn i messed up => undo => yay)
- Facets (though that's not FB core, of course. And, truth be told, Winamp's media library browser is very similar and pretty good as well. But not nearly as customisable. Har.)
