The list of supported formats is incredibly long and includes MP3, AAC, MP4, Audio CD, WMA, Vorbis, FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, Speex, AU, SND. Support for more formats can be achieved by deploying additional components or the so-called addons. 

These can be found on the developer’s website and their purpose is to add support for a wide array of functions, such as ripping or writing CDs, various audio effects, advanced encoding / decoding capabilities and iPod management, to name a few.

After a quick and hassle-free installation process, foobar2000 reveals its simple, yet intuitive interface. In fact, at first launch, you are presented with a quick appearance setup process, where you can configure the background color and the playlist layout. You can even create your own layout if you’re not satisfied with the set bundled in the application.

There’s no limit to the number of playlists you can create and save for later use. Playback controls include repeat, random, shuffle, stop after current and playback follows cursor or viceversa. 

The visualization of the audio stream is delivered via Oscilloscope, VU Meter, Peak Meter, Spectogram or Spectrum modes. The built-in equalizer allows you to adjust the amplitude of the audio signal at certain frequencies for a better audio experience.
