Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

While what you say it's true, the created timestamp is relative in the sense it doesn't depict when the file was created but copied (to another drive), so it's not reliable, meanwhile the modified timestamp survives copying between drives.

You have to admit that in this day and age it's not realistic to rely on the created timestamp when we copy files between several internal or external HDDs, USB, the cloud, back and forth. It's not the 90's anymore despite Microsoft believing so.

Thanks for looking into the mockup screenshots. I guess what I meant was exactly that, the ability to restructure the SUI with mouse and not a skin (with code), similar to some GUI implementations like Qt (foobar maybe? can't remember). I know that attaching windows side to side is a Winamp trademark, but the UI is not as small anymore but full fledged.

Well, that was my wishlist give or take, it's not my intention to start an argument,

Thanks for the answer.

Because if Wacup doesn't improve my experience with Winamp why should I make the effort to switch?
I don't know why you come as defensive, I'm here because I like what I see and want to help to improve the program.

About timestamps, music is associated with periods of time, experiences, if you change the timestamp then music is detached from memories and are simply seen as assets. This is like writing the date on the reverse of photos, call me rare : /
I use MP3Tag, but the purpose is to allow this on a global level within Wacup so I can also use ReplayGain. By the way ReplayGain can also be found on other programs as well and that didn't mean it shouldn't be included in Wacup.

Yes, lyricsplugin / mini-lyrics should make it, didn't know those, in case they work with Wacup although a button like on the screenshot should be great to streamline the experience. Also this is again editing the IDTags hence Timestamps. With album cover I mean if it's not present or if it's not what you want, click on a button to download a cover album.

I also add a mockup of the waveform seeker in compact mode. The queue panel is the queue manager window. It's just floating around, shouldn't it be integrated into the UI?

To this day I still use Winamp. I'm really liking Wacup but here are a few things that refrain me to take the leap forward.

- Allow modifying IDtag while preserving timestamps
- ReplayGain, prevent timestamp update
- Integrate lyrics and album cover import
- Show waveform also in compact mode
- Integrate queue panel into the UI (make UI customizable would be a plus)
- Create Sub Playlists
- Smart Playlists (by genre, by year, etc) (this has been requested before)
- Allow to show also bitdepth and type of Stereo (joint stereo, etc)
