Aqualung 0.9 Beta 11

Aqualung is an advanced music player designed to provide continuous, gap-free playback across a variety of input formats and a wide range of sample rates thereby allowing for enjoying quality music: concert recordings and "non-best-of" albums containing gapless transitions between some tracks. Aqualung plays audio CDs, internet radio streams, podcasts and sound files in just about any audio format and has the feature of inserting no gaps between adjacent tracks.

Aqualung comes with a Music Store that is an XML-based music database, capable of storing various metadata about music on your computer (including the names of artists, and the titles of records and tracks). You can organize your music into a tree of Artists/Records/Tracks, thereby making life easier than with the all-in-one Winamp/XMMS playlist. Importing file metadata (ID3v1, ID3v2 tags, Ogg Xiph comments, APE metadata) into the Music Store as well as getting track names from a CDDB/FreeDB database is supported.

Audio CDs can be played back and ripped to the Music Store with on-the-fly conversion to WAV, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis or CBR/VBR MP3 (gapless via LAME). Seamless tagging of the created files is offered as part of the process. It is capable of playing FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Speex, MPEG Audio files, MOD, S3M, XM, IT, Musepack, Monkey's Audio, WavPack. Moreover, numerous formats and codecs are supported via the FFmpeg project, including AC3, AAC, WMA, WavPack and the soundtrack of many video formats.

Simple & Powerful. At first glance, Aqualung 's minimalist interface is deceiving – but don't be fooled by the simple layout. Underneath the quite simple GUI is a powerful audio player that comes with variety of additional features like random seeking during playback, Track repeat, List repeat and Shuffle mode, RSS and Atom audio podcasts, edit Ogg Xiph comments, ID3v1, ID3v2, APE tags, LADSPA plugin support and more.
