This idea is very likely to be nipped in the bud because of insuperable differences in programming languages, but I thought to throw it in anyway:

There are a lot of very nice VU meters for foobar2000, and they work really well and responsive.
It would be fantastic if someone would be able to create a plugin to make these VU meter .bin files usable in MusicBee.

To give an impression of some available designs:

Would also like, share the pessimism regarding the likelihood of implementation, also share the hope that it could happen.

It looks like Aimp users have found a way to convert these foobar .bin files to make them usable in Aimp.

http://www.aimp.ru/forum/index.php?topic=52865.0

But my Russian is even worse than my Tuyuca, so maybe it's not just some 'simple' conversion.
Maybe Aimp is using a similar programming language as foobar2000, maybe they just used the image files as a starting point for their own VU meters. I really have no clue.

Since there seems to be some fresh interest and possibly some room for different ways of volume displaying, allow me to bump this request.
