QuuxPlayer Standard Edition

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder QuuxPlayer Standard Edition

QuuxPlayer delivers a clean, well-organized and almost infinitely customizable audio player interface, in a small, no-nonsense package for people who just want to listen to music. Quux has done away with the emphasis on skins, visualizations, and other irrelevant features and stressed playback quality and ease-of-use over visual bling.

Audiophiles will appreciate the built-in support for virtually every audio format, as well as Media Center-friendly features that make it easy to browse your music library from across the room with a wireless gamepad. And the geekier music fans will appreciate a scripting tool that lets you program the logic behind QuuxPlayer's shuffle play feature. The program also downloads album art, song lyrics, album and band information upon request, and displays them in a clutter-free, clean user interface.

The Standard Edition supports up to a 1000-track music library, and features a ten-band audio equalizer. Quux also sells a $14 Pro Edition with support for 100 times as many tracks, a 30-band equalizer, and other advanced audio filters and options not available in the free Standard Edition.
