    I use Strawberry as my main, though when I don't need crazy varied playlists, I use Qmmp. Winamp skins and all the plugins make it super comfy, but the media library could use a little more work, which is why I can't ditch Strawberry.

      I installed Strawberry but it's already kind of annoying me. I just want something to organise my library without Various Artist hell and it doesn't look like Strawberry handles multiple artists that well. Or I'm just being brain dead.

        Shit. It handles VA really well for me, but I did have an autistic fit a few years back and spent 14 straight hours carefully tagging all of my music with picard and jaikoz. I've been anal about metadata ever since.

          maybe I'll install picard and do the same, metadata makes me want to scream

      Is foobar2000 not just a meme? I've unironically been using it for like 2 years but it's so bad, you can't even select multiple songs at once to move or whatever. Seems like literally anything else would be better lol. I get "it's light" but I'm using a flagship phone..

        Foobar is a desktop audio player first, and the mobile application is basically an afterthought. While dependable with some nice features, Foobar for Android completely lacks modern conveniences that most other players have had for almost a decade now.

            AIMP ain't bad at all. Probably the cleanest and most intuitive of the proprietary players, and it's freeware, so you can't lose.

          From my perspective, smartphones are better as streaming devices. If you want to take your library with you using foobar2000, I suggest buying a portable music player. It's just my personal opinion.

    Strawberry is the best I've found, but I'd really like something that I can test out sound effects without adding to or creating a playlist.

        I often need to scrobble through tons of sounds and music clips for various multimedia projects. Many Linux applications assume I'm starting a dance party and start queing things up.

          Oh. Strawberry doesn't do that by default. Qmmp can't do this, and neither can Audacious.

    Foobar on PC, Musicolet on Android. I need one search bar that searches everything at the same time - title, album, artist. Absolutely non-negotiable for me, I don't want some tracks missing because the track was made by two artists and one of them was in the title or god forbid the library made a separate entry for tracks with those two artists. They have other neat features too but I can live without them.

    Although I'm annoyed that they paywalled the macOS builds. I'm mostly using Linux nowadays anyway but it's still stupid. Nothing better really exists sadly.

      Try Sayonara Player. It's like Strawberry (even built on Qt5), but lighter on resources, with a more flexible UI and slightly faster library search.

      Even when I was rich and owned several Macs I couldn't stand iTunes. I used Play (sbooth) until it was abandoned, then switched to Cog, then to Foobar's Mac port, and then I got tired of Apple increasingly murdering their hardware and locking down their software, so I left the ecosystem altogether.

    Musicbee simply because of the EPIC customization it has. Frick foobar gays, even foobar 2.0 isn't anything special or surprising, just a fricking reskin of a shitty player. I will say that sacd playback and the dsp options they have are well beyond musicbee.

    Anyone know how to use "stereotool" declipper with foobar? I got the crack from audioz but i have no idea on how to use it with foobar2000 to automatically declip the audio being played
