Staff review

Very complete external button controller

This plug-in allows for you to set up 8 external buttons to control 16 Winamp functions (2 per button)... each function can be accessed by different methods as well (single click/double click, etc.). Very complete configuration and option menu... covers a large amount of Winamp functions. Overall, this is a well thought out and designed plug-in.


Very Very Cool!!! - This gadget is really cool and very useful. All it takes are basic tools and a little knowledge in electronics and you have yourself a Winamp remote control. - April 14, 2003 by Your Mama

BEST PLUG-IN, EVER!!!! - This plug-in is so cool. I've already started on building my third controller!!!! I use it all time. Perfect when having parties or playing computer games. The controller is very cheap and easy to make. You only need about 10$ and a basic knowlegde of electronics. - February 23, 2003 by Helge Larsen

Exceptional Plug-in!! - When I saw the plug-in and it's possibilities I immediatly fell in love. I went to the electronics shop and built a 8 button remote controller the same day, and it works beautifully!! Thnx mate! - July 2, 2002 by Dennis Betten

Just...mmm...Awesome!!! - Just try it. It's too easy to make. And it really works!!!. You can use double clicks on 2 shifts, and you'll get 16 buttons (with only 4). Got to try it. - May 31, 2002 by Fabian Alvarez

It looks okay... - Now I just have to scrape up some pieces to make a controller. If I don't have any, I'll kill my TV for buttons. Cheap piece of junk with the warning label on the INSIDE of the casing. :P - March 21, 2002 by Chris Reed

Yeah !!! - One option is missing to this soft to be be the greatest Winamp remote through the com port : the utilisation of one or two buttons to change the actions of the others (see the plug'in nammed 'COM Control) - March 12, 2002 by LECLERCQ Aur�lien

LEDs are my friend - I've seen this plug-in before, but never had the hardware for it. Today I spent barely over $10 at RadioShack, and now I have an external WinAmp controller with little LEDs and push switches :) Kick-ass. - February 9, 2002 by Ben Hendel-Doying
