AIMP2 is a full-featured audio player that supports all popular audio formats as well as Internet radio playback and recording. It offers a media library, sound recorder and audio format conversion along with a modern, user-friendly interface.
Calling AIMP a music player would be doing it a disservice. As well as playing music, the program also acts as an audio organizer, making it easy to change MP3 tags and create playlists.
Playlists are an interesting feature here because as well as curating them by hand, you can also take advantage of the smart playlist option to create something to match a mood with less effort. On top of this, the program can be used to listen to streaming internet radio stations. AIMP can function as an alarm clock, audio converter and more.
In addition to the regular application, theres also a portable version that can be installed on a USB drive and easily moved from one computer to another.
Thats extremely handy, but whats most impressive about AIMP is the level of control it gives you over your music and not just in terms of organization. The DSP Manager includes an impressive 18-band graphic equalizer, and theres a range of sound effects that can be applied to music during playback.
You can also tinker with speed, tempo and pitch settings. The timed shutdown and alarm clock function are very welcome additions too, as is support for an almost unparalleled number of audio formats.
Even if youre happy with your current media player, give AIMP a try - youre likely to fall in love with its intelligent design and raft of music-tweaking options.
