Playing multiple song files with multiple seekbars?
I want to mix for my own personal use to have fun with my library, finally. Is there a way I can mix within Foobar to play multiple songs and since I use waveform to seek my music is it possible to display two seekbars or more? I do'nt think you need to spend money on a mixer when you can just use a few tools that don't cost a damn cent and still produce good stuff.

run another instance of foobar (install it in portable mode).

I can't run multiple versions of Foobar2000. I do have it configured as Portable Installation when I installed it to a custom directory.

could it be a plugin conflict? How can I easily post all my plugins?

Just for the sake of clarity when marc2003 says run another instance of foobar2000 he means a completely separate portable install i.e. not the same foobar2000.exe run twice. You probably already knew that, but just in case ...

Example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\1\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe  [normal install]
C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\2\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe  [portable]
C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\3\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe  [portable]

And since it's portable you can just copy and paste from 2 to 3 (keeping all components and settings uniform).

not a good idea. a portable install should not be placed inside program files because it needs write access to create all it's config files/playlists/etc. you really shouldn't be running as full admin or disabling UAC to get around this.

dumping the folder in your documents folder or desktop would be much better.

Oh I forgot about that kind of thing. Thanks for putting me right for OP.
I run as admin with UAC control disabled (by default - so didn't even realise I was getting around anything) since no one else uses this desktop. Will keep in mind for future.

EDIT: That's precisely why I run as admin without UAC. Portable programs should run in program files; they are not documents. To me this is MS trying to cater for everyone to the detriment of their end product.
