SOUND/MUSIC/MEDIA RELATED

Winamp - http://www.winamp.com/
---
Winamp is quite possibly the best media player that is currently available. Many features, skins, and it plays just about any kind of media file you can think of. Highly recommended!

FL Studio - http://www.flstudio.com/
---
FL Studio is a music making program, mainly for making techno. While it's only a demo, you can still do some pretty neat things with FL Studio, but it will take you some time to learn. The biggest problem of it being a demo, is that it doesn't allow you to save and work on your songs later, but you can still export them to MP3 or WAV.

Audacity - http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
---
This is one of the best free audio editing/voice recording programs that you're probably going to find. If you're stuck with the standard windows voice recording program, be sure to download this, as it has many nice features. You can add reverb, you can change the pitch of the sound without slowing it down or speeding it up, change the speed without changing the pitch, and tons of other cool things.

OverClocked ReMix - http://www.ocremix.org/
---
While this isn't a program, it's certainly a free thing anybody who considers themselves a gamer should know about. Hours and hours of quality free music, all of which are video game remixes. I'm sure you're thinking, "Oh, boy... more video game tunes with a standard techno beat behind them. Yay.", but suprisingly that isn't the case. There are many, many unique and original remixes to be found here.

VideoLAN - http://www.videolan.org/
---
This is a media program that can play just about every media file that you can think of! Check out the link above for more information.

Pandora - http://www.pandora.com/
---
Pandora helps you find more of the types of music you like. It's fairly new to me, but check out the website. It's pretty neat. This has been recommended by a few people, the first being Mr.Anderson.

GoldWave - http://www.goldwave.com/
---
GoldWave is another audio recording/editing program that is just as good, if not better, than audacity. It's a great program, but it isn't ENTIRELY free. After you do a bunch of things in one session, it will start bugging you because you don't have a registered version. Check out the website for more information.

Newgrounds Audio Portal - http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/
---
I know that I've already linked to Newgrounds below, but this seems like a part of the site that is commonly overlooked. While this is a community music portal in which anyone can submit something, there is actually quite a bit of quality music to be found here of many, many varieties.

Metroid Metal - http://www.metroidmetal.com/index.html
---
The Metroid/Super Metroid/Metroid Prime soundtracks done in an impressive metal style. While there may not be the quantity of music here as Overclocked Remix or the Newgrounds Audio Portal, you can rest assured that it's all quality stuff.

Freecorder - http://www.replay-video.com/freecorder/index.php
---
Freecorder is a program that allows you to record sound that's currently playing on your speakers or headphones. Also allows you to record Skpye phonecalls.

Free Hi-Q Recorder - http://www.roemersoftware.com/free-sound-recorder.html
---
This one is pretty much the same as above.

Quintessential Media Player - http://www.quinnware.com/
---
This is yet another media program, one that is said to be able to compete with WinAmp. Check out the site for more information.

XMPlay - http://www.un4seen.com/xmplay.html
---
While XMPlay may not be as popular as media players like WinAmp, it's been said that it can pack quite a media punch. Check out the website for more information.

SHOUTcast - http://www.shoutcast.com/
---
A bunch of free internet radio stations for you to listen to!

8bitpeoples - http://www.8bitpeoples.com/
---
Love video games? Love video game music? Well, you're not going to find anything here found in a game, but much of this music carries on the catchy legacy of music created on systems like the NES. Honestly, not all of it is that great, but I admit to finding some music that I really liked here, while I found much of it to be "Let's create as much glass-shattering noise as we possibly can and pass it off as music!" Not all of it is that bad though.

SoundClick - http://www.soundclick.com/
---
SoundClick is a site that lets anyone submit their own music - this, of course, means you're likely to find more crap here than you're going to find gems. That's not to say that everything here is horrible, but the good stuff you're going to have to find on your own.

Live 365 - http://www.live365.com/
---
Another free internet radio station. To death metal, to happy techno music, they seem to have a lot of stations to choose from.

Musicmatch Jukebox - http://www.musicmatch.com/
---
"Musicmatch Jukebox 10 is the most powerful way to find and organize your music, giving you ultimate control of your music experience. With a whole new range of library, playlist, and portable device controls, Musicmatch Jukebox is more powerful and easier to use than ever before." - The Website. It also claims to be 'the world's best music player'. That's a lot to live up to, but you never know.

WavePad - http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/
---
"This audio editing software is a full featured professional sound editor for Windows. It lets you make and edit voice and other audio recordings. When editing audio files you can cut, copy and paste parts of recordings and, if required, add effects like echo, amplification and noise reduction. WavePad works as a wav editor or mp3 editor but it also supports a number of other file formats including vox, gsm, real audio, au, aif, flac, ogg and more." - The Website.

Machinae Supremacy - http://www.machinaesupremacy.com/
---
What happens when you cross retro gaming music with metal? You get Machinae Supremacy! There is quite a bit of quality music free for download here.

Trash80/Tresk - http://www.trash80.net/mp3s/
---
Trash80 and Tresk are electronic music artists. Their music was featured in Darwinia, but they still have it all, and more, for download here.

Lemon Demon - http://www.lemondemon.com/
---
Lemon Demon wrote the music for the popular flash cartoon "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny". While not all of his music is up for download, there's certainly enough of it to be worth your time.
