ADD SOME VISUALIZATIONS
Finally, you can spruce up the interface with a visualization pane at the bottom of the window. Foobar2000 already has some built-in options like a spectrogram or peak meter, but these can be found a little wanting as they're more concerned with displaying technical information graphically than anything else.
An alternative is Shpeck, which lets you run the array of Winamp visualization plug-ins without needing to install Winamp itself. We'll use a plug-in called MilkDrop as an example, but you're free to use whatever catches your eye.
After setting the bottom pane to run Shpeck, navigate to the Preferences window and look under Visualisations for the Shpeck settings. All that's left is to specify a Winamp directory from which it will grab the plug-ins – this folder can be located anywhere, although it's probably simpler to put it in your Foobar2000 folder – and then select MilkDrop to enable it.
