Hi,

I posted on http://forums.winamp...&threadid=242649 too:

I wonder if it's somehow possible to switch from one DSP plugin to another (or even just disabling one) without having to click through Winamp's config every time, maybe by writing a script to do that?

Any kind of advice is appreciated!

So if you have ANY idea please tell me. :) I guess one could come up with an AutoHotkey based solution for this, but maybe it's even easier.

 :) I found this line in WinAmp.ini

Quote
dspplugin_name=

so I guess a simple AutoHotkey

IniWrite,path to the dsp,C:\Program Files\WinAmp\WinAmp.ini,Winamp,dspplugin_name

should work. But you probably have to reload WinAmp, so it's not ideal, unless there's some other way of forcing an ini reload.

Do a search on Google  for MuchFX. It's a great Plugin for Winamp which even allows for stacking of DSP plugins. I've been using it for a long time without problems...

Cool, thanks! http://sourceforge.n...s.php?group_id=90732 is the URL - I just wish it would look as good as it works... One can't hide it completely while it's running, right? Just minimizing?

Yes, that's it. I have stacked the MuchFX window on top of my winamp player (I'm using classic skin). Btw, if you doubleclick the titlebar the MuchFX window is rolled up and takes up much less space! (Edit: Thta's probably what you meant with minimizing)

Exactly. I'm using a modern skin, so MuchFX stands out like Amish people in Bangkok...  8)

...of course that doesn't look nice! Then you have to decide between the looks and functionality.  As far as the latter is concerned MuchFX is unbeaten, since it allows activation/deactivation with a mouseclick AND it allows to have the signal processed by multiple DSP plugins....
