MusicCubeOne

MusicCubeOne is an attempt to do a simple yet neat looking mediaplayer for the Windows operating system. Though simple it holds the most required functions for handling and playing music in an easy manner.

The playlist gives a good and intuitive overview of the loaded files with information on title, album, artist and playing length when available. Rearranging is easily done be dragging the items using the mouse. Files can be added using a file browser dialog designed to show extended information from the listed music files. This is similar to the information shown later on in the playlist. Adding files can alternately be done using drag'n'drop from the Windows Explorer or folders.

Build around the BASS Audio Library, MusicCubeOne plays the most common file formats currently available, including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Windows Media Audio and MIDI through soft-synthesis using SF2 format soundfonts. Also supported through plugins for the BASS Sound System is Free Lossless Audio Codec, OptimFROG, Monkey's Audio and more. Please note that playback of Windows Media Audio requires that the Window Media Format modules are installed.

The userinterface is constructed using a small skinning engine allowing a completely custom look. Two standard skins are bundled to start with. More skins may come later depending on the available developer resources. MusicCubeOne includes multilingual support, allowing it instantly to change all texts in the user interface to a different language. Only a few languages are available a the moment, additional languages can be added given some help for translating the texts.
