My important audio participant for a few years has been, and can stay, foobar, however there are some occasions after I simply need a easy “load’n’play” kind of participant. An software that comes very shut is Billy.
It is a improbable little app that matches in with my preferences in software program design i.e. normal controls, no skins, and so on. Nonetheless, it solely helps MP3, WAV, OGG, & FLAC and it additionally would not show or use tags.
