    Music player/manager.


    Is there any music player like winamp but can search within a playlist to let you que up songs to play before the other items in the list you are playing? Or instead of duplicating files in a list to get them to play more you can just raise their shuffle priority?

    So many music players hate winamp playlists or canít handle drag and drop to make a new playlist or just have screwy UI(music bee/ AIMP seem half broken), Iím almost desperate enough to try itunes again, from when I had a Itouch it was not that bad..well importing/exporting playlists was dumb now that I recall..

    The only other music player that I kinda liked was mediamonkey but it was kinda bloated, tho since I am no longer needing to run foobar as a thing for podcasts since I used plugins to resume multi hou long pod casts, I may can try itÖbut I dunno.


    I donít care about tagging,ect I go mainly by file name, queing songs or playlists to play one by one before going back to the main inf repeat shuffled playlist you are playing would be nice but audio balancing/replay gain to try and keep audio levels balanced is kinda a must as is easy of drag and drop to make playlists.

    You might try this:

    h**ps://web.archive.org/web/20140217152521/http://www.viprumor.com/download/VIP-Rumor-Player-setup.exe

    Download FREE Media Player

    It does support search & enque. Drag 'n' drop playlist creation. You'd have to level track volumes using other software before adding to library.

    Ick I'll try iy but to much of my archive is mixed volume, replay gain solves half my problems. I did manage to find soundlock, which will limit volume globally in windows but that dose nothing for the overly quite ones. Uhg. I might just need to normalize or raise the volume of the quite ones and lower the very load ones, and use replay gain via MP3 gain to control the rest. I tend to have a pure archive and then play archive, the play archive are duplicates I can mess with , without losing files,ect.

    I am still pretty surprised no one has made a player that controls the volume based on the audio mixer graph. I mean all it has to do is read the programs audio graph. I never really looked for that in foobar plugins I wonder if someone made soemthign more than a replay gain audio control plugin...mmmmmm

    Suggest: Temporarily install MusicBee and before launching it copy your entire music library.

    Then use MusicBee to level track volumes permanently.

    Analyze Volume | MusicBee Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia

    Then you can use any player you like.

    Also suggest install this:

    Any Windows 10 Equalizer audio programs - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    Then configure Peace to prevent clipping:

    Hi,

    Stereo Tool (free for the majority of functions) is what you need for AGC (Auto-Gain-Control), equalizers, compressors etc., on the fly (means live, when and if needed, no touching files).
    It works as standalone (using a virtual audio card) or as a DSP or VST plugin if your player supports that, like JRiver Media Center which is paid. Also "JRiver" meets all you need about playlists and many many more.
    Both of them are not easy to use solutions if you're not familiar with audio apps but you can try...

    Note: AGC (Auto-Gain-Control) is usually included in broadcasting and DJing apps but nothing compares to "Stereo Tool".

    Can't be worse than adobe GUI they can get pretty silly, music bee seems to be work like it should I recall having issues with it the year win10 came out or the year after, it would not drag and drop. I can live without the g19 lcd screen these days. I guess my main question is do these tools work without a mic? I basically need simple auto volume balancing, dose stereo tool do this by default or do I need to set it up? I have the plug in working in winamp.

    What you need is NOT so simple. WinAmp supports "Stereo Tool" DSP plugin, so it's easier to setup but nothing is default. You have to learn... Actually, it's worthy because it's the best (and easiest) solution for what you ask for!
    You may use only AGC part of "Stereo Tool" which is amazingly doing what exactly you need: decreasing loud parts and increasing low ones to desired level without any distortion, on the fly, while listening, with no touching files!

    Note: No need for mic on Broadcasting/DJing apps. You can use them as players.

    My personal favorite is Foobar2000. It takes some effort to acclimate but it should cover your needs and then some.

    Foobar, although is one of the best especially on Tagging, does not meet OP's needs, like AGC. Also does not support external DSP plugins, except of its own which do not include an AGC one.

    PS: Do not confuse AGC (Auto Gain Control) with Replay Gain or Normalize. They are completely different.

    As I said, it takes some effort to acclimate to achieve desired results. Pedantry aside, there are various methods to achieve the desired results.
