    bass boost

    ok, i have lots of mp3s (like most of us here) and a lot of the songs fall into the either 1 of these 2 categories: needing bass, and not needing bass. my idea/suggestion/request is to add some sort of indicator/button (preferably indicator so that we would know when its on and when its off) that would automatically boost the bass level up to 100% or even at a user specified value. if this is confusing to someone lemme know and ill try to explain it better. -basically, itd be nice to have a button to boost bass up for rap or hip hop or rock, and then have the same button drop the bass back down for country or slower songs or whatever.

    That's exactly what mixer presets are for.

    Is there a way I can have the Master "Bass" and "Treb" settings programmed in an ini file. I searched for it and couldn't find anything related to that.

    The problem I have is that whenever I quit RR or restart it loses these settings and I have to set it manually everytime. If my system doesn't crash and I hibernate like I should then the settings are restored properly.

    Mixer presets are an easy way to do both things you guys talked about here.. But not all skins have support for those directly in the skin (doesn't mean you can't use it, or add it to the skin). The easiest way to test this feature is to load one of the Brushed skins, go into the mixer, set the EQ/Volumes the way you want then press and hold one of the buttons on the left (i.e. Rock -- to save the preset), then change the EQ/Vol settings and quick tap the same button -- you'll notice it will revert to what it was before. You can save as many presets as you like and load them whenever you want.

    I tried that guino, but that only remembers the "Winamp Equilizer" settings section. I want to keep the settings from the "Master" section (Using the BMV2 skin). Those don't seem to get saved.

    Read skin commands.txt, it can do just winamp, just the mixer or both.. it's just a matter of using the right command.

    I figured out why the Mixer Presets wasn't saving my Master Bass & Treble settings. Its 'coz my integrated sound card doesn't support those features

    Looked at the code, and saw that when those settings are not found the indicators are not updated on a Load_Preset. Now that little extra Bass I thought I heard must all be placebo
