Not supported w/Modern Skin - First, A-B repeat is a standard function - which Winamp from v1.0 should have supported but hasn't.Second, the plugin only works in CLASSIC which is useless.One of the greatest improvements to Winamp was the adoption of docking to a side and then 'auto-hide' (blinds?) Anyways, without that option the player sits somewhere on your screen hidden beind clutter or on-top in the way.As such this plugin fails the basic premise of being supported in all skins. - July 2, 2007 by jeff holicky


good thing, but not finished yet - Very interesting to find the drummer-rating today where I was also looking for such tool. I'm a pianist and am looking for such a tool for the same reason like the drummer. I have some problems using it: It would be very great to have some shortcuts for setting the a/b points while the song is playing (like it is on a CD-Player). Another problem is that it doesn't work with output-plugins - the songs I want to practice are often too fast for me ;-) and I slow them down with for example "Roni Music Slow Me Down". But now I have to decide if I want to here the song slower or if I want to ab-repeat it. :-( But perhaps you go on programming now with so much creative input. ;-) - May 24, 2006 by Nils Runge


Merely useful - You see, I'm a drummer and I play covers with my band. I've been looking for this because when I'm practicing a song I have to press the left arrow key to practice a complex fill or pattern to do it right (of course, after I had understood it completely). But it's very annoying to release the drumsticks to press the key... and you know the fills don't last more than a few secs, so: imagine releasing/presing several times every few seconds. With this plugin I can have the drumsticks all the time grabbed and the fill or pattern will repeat until I get sick of practicing it, XD. BUT, why I said "merely useful"? Because although this plugin is working fine for my drummer needs, I'm also a programmer and I'd like this plugin to have more features. I think the visual style is fine, just a matter of aesthetics (I don't like it, though). It'll be great if the A-B bar could snap to another Winamp window; I'd also like it being resizable, so the user can be able to select a specific point on the song moving the bars (1/2 or 1/4 sec resolution will be fine). Beside this last feature, setting the A and B points manually (like the Jump to time dialog) will be great. There's a thing I don't understand: Why is this a Visualization plugin? (I have some theories but I'm not sure). I think that's all... :D Thanks for the plugin, and thanks in advance for the requested improvements... I hope you release a new version of this plugin. - May 24, 2006 by David Medina


Does just what it says on the tin - Works fine with Winamp 5, if not very pretty, providing you use the Classic skin. Does not work with any other skin as far as I know. - May 9, 2006 by Alistair Farquharson


Thanks! - I've been looking for something like this for a while. Its based on the same thing that quicktime has on both sides of its timeline. Great idea but NO options and no updates (I think) - June 29, 2003 by Val Blaggey
