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.

Version 4.51 build 2070  brings these changes (see the changelog for more info):

- Audio Converter: new encoding mode - "single folder - single file"
- DSP-Manager: an ability to remove silence longer than 0.5 seconds
- DSP-Manager: Now you can specify different preamp values for the "on-the-fly analysis" or "value from tags" modes
- Tag Editor: an ability to start autonumeration from specified index

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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.41

• You can now see recent status updates in the WhatsApp widget in your iPhone's Today View.
• Voice messages will now continue to play if you switch to another app or turn your screen off.
