After putting up the thread about plugin conflicts I thought I start a topic on other winamp plugins that people use with WRS/WinAmp 2.9x for broadcasting either online or on air. (I'm curious what other people are using)

Could be handy as a starting point for people just starting out using WRS for broadcast automation.

Here's what I've either tried in the past or are currently using now.

Sound Solution

Multiband Audio Processor for Winamp, includes preemphasis generator, compressor, expander, and limiter. It makes a noticable difference to the signal.
Good for signal processing for broadcast. The official website has list of preset files if you don't feel like programming you own settings.
Be warned:This plugin is processor intensive. We use to run it with 700mHz/256mb of ram and it struggled a bit. But a very good plugin if you have the processing power.


Handy to stack/chain several DSP plug-ins.

RockSteady 2.1

Monitors the volume level and automatically adjust it so that all songs (or portions of them) will sound at approximately the same level.
Handy if you have a mixture of different bit rate recordings, ie. 256, 196, 92, varible etc. It makes them about the same volume.

Winamp Enqueue V 40

Gives you a search and enqeue window that allows you to cue up playlist entries by number, or search for them by text. (provides the enqueue function of Winamp 3 for Winamp 2.x)
Handy, if you have djs that come in and want to quickly find / select songs from your playlist.

NxS BigClock

A plugin that brings a bigger time display to Winamp.
Can display Elapsed time, Remaining time, Playlist elapsed, Playlist remaining, Time of day.
We use it on 'Remaining time' so we can quickly see at a glance when a track will end when mixing from computer to CD or turntable etc...

Please list the plugins you use with WRS on this thread.
