"next we configure 2.1 ASIO for foobar
on Preferences(Ctrl+P) click "ASIO Virtual Devices" on the left
create new ASIO mapping profile (left then right)
click "Output" tab on the left
under "Output Device" dropdown box, choose "ASIO : Creative ASIO"
I can't follow this at all, I'm sorry.

I found ASIO Virtual Devices under Playback>Output.
Here i have a blank box headed configured Virtual ASIO Devices, Add New, Edit and Remove at the bottom.

I can't find "Create new ASIO mapping profile" and the next few steps are just confusing me more

Another thing I like about JRMC is that it has an awesome theater view.
Same here, I like Foobar, but setup and the bugs put me off. Never liked Winamp. I use the Jukebox version of Jriver because it's free, but it's a good program. JRiver Jukebox + VLC =

J River Media Center is often looked over because it's not free, but if J River Jukebox is free and it supports ASIO (Does it?), then it would be by far the best music player out there. I use VLC Media player as well, it's simple and it plays almost anything you want it to (and it works).

Hmm on mine i get the choice between Creative ASIO and ASIO 4ALL v2. the former being 16 bit the later 32, is the latter the one i should be using?

and what is the difference between the 44.1khz, 48 and 96? I tried 96 in the Audigy panel and then in foobar sounds lower or something. should i just keep it at 48?

Well it kind of depends on what you are looking for, foobar has more available plug-ins and add-ons that can make it sound better and give it more functionality. Also it is highly customizable.

But if you are the kind of person who just wants their music to play, then WMP is probably better suited for you because it is easier and there is (almost) a garantee of there not being any bugs.
