    Hi,

    In order to get an alternative to AIM player, I'm looking for a light Music player and Organizer, low in memory and ressources.

    I've been testing Jaangle, but I don't like the graphical interface.

    Which one you consider the best light Music Player and Organizer freeware or paid version ?

    Thanks for all.

    i haven't used the organizing features of AIMP but it's my favorite music player.

    really good gapless playing, great interface and you can install it as a portable app.

    Here's an old poll- https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=263732

    I guess a lot of people like the newer versions of Windows Media Player and it seems to work fine for me. As far as a 3rd party music player/organizer I would go with MediaMonkey or Aimp2 or Aimp3 beta.

    How much in ressources and memory ? I hear that's it is a little bit heavy on ressource.

    Yes, Moontan,

    AIMP player is one of the best concerning the sound quality, but I dislike the graphical interface.

    This one was my first music player. I've been using during a few years. At that moment, I was working on Win98SE. Very nice sound quality.

    Unfortunately, the graphics remain the same after a few years.

    I am recently using MediaMonkey and I must say I am pretty satisfied with it. However it needs to be upgraded to Gold version to use Multi-core CPUs.

    I tried to install Mediamonkey and I got some error messages. So, I decided to give up.

    1by1 and foobar2000 are the best according to me. :thumb:

    Moreover, foobar2000 have a lot of excellent skins. I found a good one, but I don't know to install the selected skin.

    Unfortunately, I had to uninstall foobar2000, because I install an infected DarkOne skin file from tedgo,DeviantArt. I could'nt not anymore enter into my Admin or user account, when typing my password, I noticed that ones I press a key, a few keys were displayed. It was horrible ! At the end, I could find a solution. The culprit was a dll installed in the 'components' folder. For now, I don't want anymore foobar2000 neither its skins.

    I think I will go on with AIMP and I will try with jaangle or 1by1.

    I would suggest Boom Audio Player. It's from the author of foobar2000 but intended for users that need a light and stable minimalistic audio player.

    Night_Raven is right...Boom Player is really light and works fine. I found one more player...Ubiquitous Player. It has many features and looks very interesting.

    Ubiquitous is not so bad, very light, but cons are :

    - graphical interface not well looking
    - no equalizer or other sound enhancer, no peek meter

    The same for Boom Player.

    On yesterday, I tried Wynil

    http://vinylsoft.com/

    Pros: graphical interface
    Cons: - No sound enhancer and no peek meter
