files are basically songs
from Playstation games
, except in incredibly small sizes
while still maintaining game level quality
. It's an excellent way to listen to songs you love
but are too lazy to download
To play them, you'll need the Highly Experimental Winamp
plugin (http://www.neillcorlett.com/psf), and, if you don't already have it, Winamp
itself (www.winamp.com). There's a readme file
included in the Highly Experimental zip file
, which basically says put the plugin
into the Winamp plugin folder
, then restart
Winamp. Winamp will automatically load the plugin, and you can now listen to PSF music
(as well as minipsf files, although I have no idea what the difference is).
I don't really know many places to get the actual music files
, but www.zophar.net is always a good place to start.
The files take a half second
or so to load on my computer, but it has a 533 mhz
processor, so I can't really say if it would do the same for any decent computer. Another kind of strange thing is that you can't skip ahead in the songs normally. You can try to make it skip to a certain spot, but it will just stop playing and move ahead faster than normal until it reaches where you want it to go.
Other than that, the music is pretty good quality
, and it's quite pleasing
to get an hour of music in a 1 megabyte
