Staff review

Very complete external button controller

This plugin allows for you to control Winamp by using up to 4 external buttons or switches connected to a serial port. Very customizable... you can pretty much assign any Winamp function to the external buttons. Nice interface allows for smooth configuring.


Effective, Simple - Well, 4.5 stars, maybe... the problem may be in the rest of the computer. Only problem I have is there comes up a conflict, and COMctrl looses which port it's supposed to be looking at. Easily resolved, just a minor annoyance. - November 28, 2006 by Tom Spencer

Definatly the easiast and powerful external winamp controller - Ive been using this plugin for over a year now and I still find it the best and easist controller available. The setup is easy with heaps of room for expansion. Im running a 10m cable and two com ports with no problems. Its fuggin perfect! Thanks for the awesome work! - Pyrocam - October 30, 2003 by pyrocamnz z

Less then an hour! - From downloading the plugin, driving to the electronics store, building box, to working... 1 hour! Great job, and Thanks! - April 23, 2003 by robb leece

Perfect In Every Way. - Ingenious, ripped open a Sega Genesis controller that was takin up space, resoldered the internals, added an LED, and ran a 2nd cord to Com2, now i have 2 4-button COMtroller pads built into 1 Sega Controller! Does Everything i want it to do, and it even allows you to perform keyboard functions with it, so i can use it as an actual game pad also! Congrats to Dmitry Maximov for this one. It has alot more potential then just for Winamp. - January 7, 2003 by Phlux Phlux

This thing ROCKS! - Very impressed. :) When I saw this, it occurred to me that I have a couple old Atari Controllers around, so I could use one of those. It took me about 5 minutes to do this, and I love it. :) If you want to see how to do it, go to Thanks Dmitry!! - July 3, 2002 by Paul V

I Know This Program And... - You reviewers Are ALL Wrong. You can use 2 comm ports at the same time as well as have 15 buttons. Thats righ 15, on EACH com port giving 30 winamp buttons! THATS WHY I LOVE THIS! - June 22, 2002 by David Mackenzie
