PC application to play two cd's at once?

Recommended Posts

Considering I've got two rom drives, it would be nice if I could play two cd's at once from the same app.

Anybody know of some application that does this?

I can get around this by ripping files and using apps I have to play them at the same time, but it would be nice if I could just do it from the cd's.

I'm really just needing to audition stuff to determine "mashability". :D

That would be Media Player 6.4, which is still installed with XP but they hide it. Go to Start -> Run -> and type: mplayer2.

The version of WinAmp I use (2.82 or something -- the last one before version three blew up like a liferaft) has an option to allow multiple instances.


But what I usually do if I need multiple streams or whatever is just load WinAmp and MusicMatch or Wmp.


Now, I think to do that under Windows your soundcard has to allow multiple source streams (as most recent Soundblasters, etc, allow)... but I'm a wee bit hazy on that. Seems like I recall setting a maximum amount of source streams for the SB Live I'm using in system settings. (I know that both my SB and my Echo Mia allow multiple streams -- but the Mia acts as a 'virtual' 8/8 internally.
