Introduction

Welcome to Winamp collections!

Winamp is a media player for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android devices, initially written by Nullsoft.

On November 2013, AOL announced that Winamp would shut down on December 2013, and the software would no longer be officially available for download by the company after that date.

And as usual, we have collected the all of the best skins into The Best of Winamp Skins 2021 (RePack 23). Open the best skins instantly! Or, you could search through our web site and choose for yourself! The archive contains more than 73000 skins.

So what has happened on the skins front in the current year?

The first thing that came into my mind was the Skinning Framework Classic Pro. Classic Pro gives you the power to create single window skins just the same way as Winamp Classic Skins. Till now the Classic Pro Framework has been downloaded over one million times from different download mirrors what is a huge success. But this would only have been possible with lots of people creating cool skins for it!

Thus, let’s start with my top 3 Winamp Skins.
First there is “cPro Insomnis”. It has a dark and stylish user interface and is now offered with a bunch of cool color themes.
Then we have “cPro Relax”, a colored and nice styled skin which was the clear winner of the “Skinning Shootout” held by Skin Consortium.
Another highlight was the recall of “cPro MMD” – the official Classic Pro port of the legendary MMD3 skin by Sven Kistner.

But also the Classic Skin developers have done some great work in the past!
My absolute favourite is “MMVIII” by GaretJax and mike_db – a great level of detail and nice colors, so go and check it out!
As a counterpart to this skin David Wood has created a cool vista styled skin called “Glitch Alienmorph Black” with a modern and clean userinterface.
Last but not least we also have a future styled skin by SMAR Designs: “Acierate” is green and sharp, so don’t cut yourself on it!

Unfortunately Modern Skin development has suffered from a big decline in the past few years. This might be due to the lack of interest of existing coders in creating skins and the hard way to learn modern skinning if you are a beginner. Nevertheless there have also been some highlights in this category:
Taking the download count “Azenis mimi” by itemsoft is the clear winner. A simple and clean interface based on the well-known Azenis theme.
For all Winamp classic fans Corwin has created a revamped and feature picked skin called “NEO CLASSIC”.
And we have another winner in this category as well: “krazyPlayer” by Skin Consortium has won the “Winamp Freestyle Skinning Contest” over at deviantArt. This future styled skin has a nice RGB color picker as well as a stunning breathing beat animation.

So this was my fast run through the current year! Of course there are plenty of other cool skins to talk about, so I encourage you to comment and let us know your favorites as well.

Best wishes for 2021!

As a Winamp user you will already be familiar with the fact that WinAmp is a longstanding tool for listening to and cataloguing your music.

Winamp Visualization

It works as a one stop shop for managing your music library and it’s still free.  It allows you to sync your music collection to an MP3 player or smartphone, and you can also stream it over the internet, allowing you to share your favorite tunes with your friends. There have been other cataloguing tools that have come along but for sheer control of your own downloads it still stands out from the crowd as a powerful and customizable tool. WinAmp is also light compared to something like Itunes which has become an insatiable resource muncher. Additionally, you would be hard pressed to find another that’s as open to adding as many additional plug-ins. New skins also help to keep things fresh along with the vast array of plug ins available in the catalogue which give you the ability to boost 3D sound, graphic equalizers, crossfading, and support for the lossless FLAC format but for me the key thing is the visualizations that it allows you to create.

When it comes to the visualizations there are a few built in standard options but there is still a huge community of current users that are actively developing exceptional plug ins to expand and improve it, so it never stands still. An array of spectral visualizations that you’re able to enjoy while listening to your favorite tracks is one of the best things ever invented. Initially music visualizers were the exclusive concern of music and tech nerds but with the more user friendly and specific plug in’s more people discovered the beauty of what they could create based on the audio frequencies and amplification of each track. Effective music visualization aims to attain a high degree of visual correlation between a track’s specific characteristics and the objects or components of the visual image being rendered and displayed.
These often, spectral visualizations allow you to fully personalise your listening experience onto a real time moving canvass, so you can immerse yourself in your music by creating an ever-changing spectacle of colour and movement. Techniques can range from super simple to gorgeously elaborate, which can often include a multitude and plurality of composited effects. The changes in the music’s loudness and frequency spectrum are often the key.

If you have put your creative side away maybe it’s time to dust of the jacket and take out your vinyl collection or old CD’s and explore the new catalogue available so you can take a walk on the visual wild side.

Huge archive of Winamp Visualizations. Over 2500 files in one archive. Winamp visualization will generate images and video based on the music being played.
