    Probably the best thing about AIMP is that how incredibly simple it is to use. There are no library scans, menu options, sub-sections, or anything like that. You just launch the application, add a few songs, and let it do its thing. AIMP’s default UI (or skin) looks a lot like Winamp (which we will come to, shortly), and consists of just the now playing module, and the playlist editor. The playlist has a quick search bar for easily finding any track. All standard functions like shuffle, crossfade, equalizer, as well as playback buttons are easily accessible.

Foobar2000 is probably one of the most customizable, extensible and feature loaded music player software ever. And the fact that it manages to do so while being super lightweight just makes things better. You can granularly tweak Foobar2000’s UI by choosing what modules, such as playlist view, equalizer etc. are displayed. For example, the companion screenshot above displays Foobar2000 (latest tested version 1.3.9) with the frequency meter, spectrum meter, and album & artist view modules, along with the core UI.
