Finally! Someone who knows what I'm talking about when I say "XMPlay sounds better than WinAmp"! If you were female, I'd hug you!
Welcome to the forum; please stick around. It's a well-known fact that user feedback is the most important part of development. I hope you join us in letting Ian know how to make the best audio media player be better than it already is. (That, and hide his oranges from time to time.)
Yep yep, I've always thought that XMPlay's MP3 features made them sound much better than WinAmp -:) The surround sound and reverb effects rival that of a DOS MP3 player that I used on my old 486, "MPXPlay". After getting my first Pentium and installing Windows 98 SE and WinAmp, It always drove me nutz that MPXPlay sounded a hundred times better than WinAmp. After discovering XMPlay about a year ago, I found that it sounded as nice (actually beter) than the older MPXPlay for DOS did -:)
Yes, I'll be around the forum for quite a while, didn't even realize that Ian had a forum for his products. Thanks to Ian's MID2XM that I bought years ago, I was able to convert a few of my MIDI tunes to XM format using a few commercial SF2 Soundfonts that I have -:) Great product, Ian!
