Ok. Approximately 10 years of Winamp lies behind me, finally i tried foobar2000
I heard a lot of it before but the screenshots haven't really attracted me...
And i couldn't imagine that there can be a difference in sound.
Strengthened from my successfully research on Linux(Ubuntu
), i tried foobar.
I know that Linux has nothing in common with foobar but if i can change from Windows to Linux than i surely can change from WA to foobar. ;)
(And yes, my Workstation
now completly runs on Linux.)
The first steps were, humm, very
reserved 'cause it really dosen't look familiar and it tooks me some time to get through all the stuff.
But looks like it's worth it!
Foobar & Channel Mixer
do a much
better work on my sound system than Winamp inclusive some plugins AND my driver settings! The sb-driver-panel is not needed any longer. :)
I'm really pleased!
Next time i'll try the kX-drivers
The only reason for using the creative drivers were the sb-driver-panel to set 5.1...
conclusion is very positive, i absolutely recommend foobar! But of course you had to test it yourself.
Here are some links to make testing easier:

After a little testing i can say:
The kX's sucks.
Maybe there are some tricks but i like my creative-drivers.
Thank God i made an image!
