    Go post in the dev's forums

    I'm getting weirdly convinced this sounds better than winamp (which is weird) too.
    Though, to be honest, the onboard sound on the PC is utter crap.

    Re: Today, I rather like AIMP2

    fb2k is nice, but I don't like spending ages getting to look nice, so I stick with Winamp for justnow.

    I'll give AIMP2 a go when I get home though!

    Re: Today, I rather like AIMP2

    Don't get me wrong - choice is good - and on this count it's very subjective but out of the box AIMP2 has impressed me so far and i'd never heard of it till yesterday

    I think i've been using winamp for er.. ever

    Re: Today, I rather like AIMP2

    the thing is winamp 2.x was the dogs bollocks.

    Its plugin system was simple.

    Its Visualisations where cool, with many excellent plugins been written. Such as Milkdrop (which is just awsome, runs on low spec pc's too!).

    I've been so tempted to sit down and write a wrapper for milk drop, so that it thinks its running in winamp when really its running off the sound card.
