A BE­GIN­NER’S GUIDETOSETTING UPFOOBAR2000

The stream­ing rev­o­lu­tion may be upon us, but for the diehard au­dio­phile, noth­ing beats procur­ing your own high-qual­ity files.

by If there's one thing Spo­tify doesn't of­fer, it's CD-qual­ity sound. Sure, you could go to Tidal for that, but if you're look­ing to stream high-res­o­lu­tion au­dio, you'll pretty much be left out in the cold. Per­haps you're not even that much of a stick­ler for sound qual­ity and just have an en­tire hard drive of songs you don't quite know what to do with. Ei­ther way, you'll need a ded­i­cated music player to or­ga­nize your music li­brary. And no, we don't mean some new-fan­gled ver­sion of Win­dows Me­dia Player.

For this, we re­turn to a clas­sic. Foo­bar2000 has been a sta­ple me­dia player and man­ager for Win­dows since the early 2000s, and it's still one of the bet­ter ones out there to keep your pre­cious gar­den of tunes well-tended. It's a bit plain at first sight, but of­fers rich cus­tomiza­tion op­tions and sup­ports a wide range of add-ons for ex­tra fea­tures.
