Download and listen to your kind of music with SoundFrost

Icon-SoundFrostOver the past 15 or so years, the face of the music industry has dramatically changed. MP3 files, digital music players, peer to peer sharing networks and copyright infringement lawsuits filed by the RIAA were unknown words, items and happenings until the iPod hit the streets and remade the music industry. The same thing is happening today with applications like Pandora, Spotify and the new, iTunes Radio.  However, if indie music is more to your  less than mainstream tastes then you need to take a long hard look at SoundFrost. It’s a music searching and playback tool for Windows.

SoundFrost helps provide users with free access to music. SoundFrost searches, provides for online playback as well as download of music on PC.  The app supports nine different audio formats – MP3, WAV, FLAC, OGG, WMA, AAC, AIFF, AU, and AC3. Support for these many different formats enables you to play SoundFrost discovered music on all types of media devices: pc, laptop, tablet pc, smartphone, mobile phone, as well as your portable media player.

SoundFrost gives users to over 10 million songs from a number of different genres and styles.  On top of that SoundFrost offers high-speed download of music files with no quality loss. The app gives users the ability to create a playlist, drag and drop songs, provides for random playback, repeat of playlist or songs and provides for a great experience. The app will also convert YouTube videos to 18 different media formats.

SoundFrost tries a great deal to look like iTunes but doesn’t come close to iTunes at all. The app is an OK music search and playback tool, but not great.  The worst part of SoundFrost is its install routine, which wants to install 3-4 different pieces of junk-ware or add-ons that most users won’t want.  You’ll have to pay close attention to what the install routine wants to do in order to insure that none of it gets installed if all you want is SoundFrost and nothing more.

AIMP 3 comes with its own sound engine

While others were starting to celebrate the New Year’s Eve, the team behind the AIMP project released the third stable version of this popular music player.

Starting back in 2006, AIMP became the Russian response to Winamp. Since then the player suffered three major changes, that brought the player to its actual stable state: a comprehensive music player that is 100% free and features a plethora of audio formats: CDA, .AAC, .AC3, .APE, .DTS, .FLAC, .IT, .MIDI, .MO3, .MOD, .M4A, .M4B, .MP1, .MP2, .MP3, .MPC, .MTM, .OFR, .OGG, .RMI, .S3M, .SPX, .TAK, .TTA, .UMX, .WAV, .WMA, .WV, .XM.

The most important think about AIMP 3 is the fact that the player comes with its own sound engine, which means that you can now control the audio output through ASIO, WASAPI or DirectSound. With its new engine, you can also take advantage of your surround system either 5.1 or 7.1. Let’s not forget to mention the redesigned Audio Library, the extended playlist functionality and dozens of bug fixes and tweaks.

Unfortunately, AIMP 3 inherited the same crowded interface with lots of buttons on each window. It may look like a demanding application to control, but I assure you that each button has its own role in the whole functionality of the system. But in order to learn it, you have to rely only on the tooltips, that are spread everywhere on the interface. Being a Russian product, lots of useful things about this product are not translated, and even if you can choose the English language on the homepage of aimp.ru you will still get a lot of info in Russian.

If you are into music, and want to try a free player, apart from Winamp, I encourage you to try out AIMP.
