Enjoy your music

Winamp is one of the longest-running multimedia software that allows users to listen to all kinds of music and watch your videos. It can support different file formats even allows you to import and burn your favorite songs to CDs. 

One of the things that you will enjoy with Winamp aside from importing and listening to audio files, is that it allows you to edit them. You might even feel like a true DJ with this application except you have simpler controls that make it easier to modify the music. For instance, Winamp allows you to manage the frequency of the audio through the Equalizer option. You also do not have to worry about your music failing to play with Winamp because it is able to accommodate all kinds of audio formats like MIDI, OGG, and WMA. To make things even better, Winamp will also bring you back in time to the era of burning playlists to CDs. Just import your music and Winamp will compile them all on a CD for you to listen to when you are traveling or just relaxing at home. Its flexibility also extends to its interface. You can change the application’s skin into different styles and colors that would suit your taste.
