Foobar as a DJ software

Although I have been using iTunes for DJing for the past two years, I have tried using WinAMP before that and currently revisiting using a free software called foobar2000. Now, despite the rather innocuous name, it is actually a very powerful piece of software which works not only in Microsoft Windows but also under Linux (using Wine). The advantages of using foobar2000 include wide range of file formats (for example I have most of my collection in flac, but occasionally I will receive files in aac and mp3), plethora of customisation options, to name a few.

Here are some resources that I have personally found to be extremely useful, for anyone also seeking an alternative player.

    I discovered Foobar when I was told that every music lover / audiophile who likes to be taken seriously, must have experienced this software. It’s strength lies in the fact that it just does what a audio player has to do (“less makes more”). But if you’re an advanced user, a whole magical world of components opens without almost unlimited possibilities to customize and personalise your application just perfect to your needs. Since foobar, my terrifying quest for the perfect music player (simple+strong) was solved!
