AIMP
A full-featured audio player with many interesting options to explore

AIMP is a capable music player with some useful extra features.

Core audio support is good, with the program supporting a wide range of input formats: .CDA, .AAC, .AC3, .APE, .DTS, .FLAC, .IT, .MIDI, .MO3, .MOD, .M4A, .M4B, .MP1, .MP2, .MP3, .MPC, .MTM, .OFR, .OGG, .RMI, .S3M, .SPX, .TAK, .TTA, .UMX, .WAV, .WMA, .WV and .XM. In a couple of clicks you'll be browsing for files, folders, playlists or URLs you'd like AIMP to handle, and the program's 32-bit audio processing should ensure you get the best possible sound quality.

If you need more, though, AIMP's integrated 18-band EQ can apply some useful audio tweaks. If you prefer an easy life then you can apply one of the seventeen presets in a click or two for instant results. Or, if you like to be more "hands on", then the DSP Manager supports various effects (Echo, Chorus, Speed, Reverb, Bass, Tempo, Flanger, Enhancer, Pitch). And you can expand the program's capabilities further by, for example, adding various Winamp plugins.

You also get a surprisingly capable scheduler. You can have this shut down the computer at a particular time, or when a file or entire playlist has finished. Or you're able to create an alarm, where the program pops up to play a specified file at your chosen time. AIMP can even start this at a very low volume, then keep increasing it over time, handy if the program's being used to gently wake you up.

And there's more. You can record audio, rip CDs or convert audio files in general to MP3, OGG, WMA and WAV formats, for instance. And there's an audio library manager, a tag editor, an Internet Radio tool and more, yet the program remains fairly compact. The standard installation required under 19MB on our test PC, and it can be installed to a USB flash drive for portable audio playing if you prefer.

V.3.60.1465 is a maintenance release.

Verdict:

AIMP is a very powerful audio player which comes packed with useful extras and rich functionality, everywhere you look. Initially it can seem intimidating, with tiny buttons dotted everywhere, but smart interface design and helpful tooltips mean it's generally easy to use.

The BEST Audio player available

Posted by: Olav Tryggvason, 07 January 2012 08:18

After being a die-hard aficionado of Winamp for 10 years, I discovered AIMP almost by mistake, and I'm really glad I switched. As someone who uses their PC for all their music, audio quality is paramount, and AIMP delivers. I'm honestly surprised it's free - it's worth paying for in my opinion.

Everything about AIMP is as good as Winamp, from the plug-ins (I use WaveSurround, a Winamp plug-in, and it works fine) to the skins.

Genuinely the best audio player available, and, like I said, it's FREE, so I don't know why anyone *wouldn't* have AIMP as their go-to player. As a pure player, you can't beat it.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
