Audacious Review

A free media player which focuses on functionality and speed
A review of Audacious by Sven Sørensen

Audacious is a fast and free music player which can play all of the major audio file formats as well as skins designed for Winamp.

The basic layout of Audacious is rather basic and all of its functions are accessed via the menu bar. Playlists can be created by adding files from a directory containing music files.

Audacious has full support for plug-ins which can enhance of change the way music sounds. By default, Audacious includes a number of effects including dynamic range compression, extra stereo, LADSPA host, silence removal, voice removal, crossfade, speed and pitch and others.

Visualizations are also a main feature of Audacious and add that extra bit of color to the program. It comes with 3 different visualizations including Blur Scope, OpenGL Spectrum Analyzer and a basic Spectrum Analyzer.

The appearance of the msuic player is customizable and out-of-the-box, Audacious can use a Winamp-look-alike or its native GTK interface. The Winamp Classic skin is customizable in itself.

All-in-all, Audacious is a very fast and beautiful audio player which includes all of the most-used features that the casual music listener likes.
