MAKE IT YOURS

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

In­stalling add-ons is sim­ple. Foo­bar2000's of­fi­cial down­load page has a sec­tion ded­i­cated to all the com­po­nents you can grab to cus­tom­ize your lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. These are down­loaded in the form of a .dll file. To en­able them, sim­ply drag the file into the Com­po­nents folder in the in­stal­la­tion di­rec­tory, and you're all set. Un­less oth­er­wise stated, all the add-ons we talk about here can be found on the main web­site and en­abled in this man­ner.

You'll also need to nav­i­gate to the View menu, hover over the Lay­out but­ton, and then en­able lay­out edit­ing mode be­fore you be­gin.

Next, click on 'cre­ate a scratch­box' in the same sub-menu to start set­ting up your own cus­tom lay­out. This calls up a blank win­dow pane in which you can add UI el­e­ments of your choos­ing. Sim­ply click any­where within the win­dow to bring up the UI con­trol panel, and select one of the split­ter op­tions. The left/right one will cre­ate a ver­ti­cal di­vider, while the top/bot­tom one will cre­ate a hor­i­zon­tal one.

You can opt for a sin­gle left/right split­ter and two top/bot­tom ones to cre­ate a uni­fied left col­umn and three other panes for dis­play­ing your music li­brary, al­bum cover flow, and some neat vi­su­al­iza­tions.
