About AlsaPlayer Publisher's description
from Dominique Michel
AlsaPlayer is a new type of PCM player.
AlsaPlayer is a new type of PCM player. It is heavily multi-threaded and tries to excercise the ALSA library and driver quite a bit. It has some very interesting features unique to Linux/Unix players. The goal is to create a fully pluggable framework for playback of all sorts of media with the focus on PCM audio data. The core code was written by Andy Lo-A-Foe with contributions from many other folks. See the credits files for details.
Some of the more interesting features in AlsaPlayer are
Full speed (pitch) control, positive *and* negative!
This is the first Linux and only GPL player that supports this. You can scratch mp3's and even audio CD's in realtime.
Icecast/shoutcast streaming support
Completely redefine the user interface
Control alsaplayer from another application
Low latency mode
On capable soundcards latency can be as low as 1.3ms!
Plays nice with concurrent audio tools
Doesn't touch the hardware mixer
Concurrent visual scopes
Open as many scopes as there are.
This results in efficient/skip free playback. You can also activate real-time scheduling for even better performance.
Accurate scope/audio syncing
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
