By the author of Ubiquitous Player:

I've decided to stop updating this program. In 3 years I received exactly zero feedback on it, so I guess no one really uses it.

Thanks.

So ... is this program being actively developed again now?

MIKLO on 2016-08-23 14:32

WOW this is still being updated I'm surprised but anytime someone is willing to improve their software 4me its a good thing. I used this some time back it does a lot of things but to me is just way to busy although it did work well when I used. :)

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

Why do we another music player and that too which looks like WinAMP?

I'll bite the loaded question: in the case of Resonic, you do need yet another music player if you are concerned with very high quality sound coupled with some advanced features, all tied together under a beautiful UI... YMMV, though. :)

Realist on 2016-10-17 16:13

@Midas

How do you measure sound quality?

Midas on 2016-10-18 08:46

It's highly subjective (see subbject of psychoacoustics) but there are objective measures that can be taken to achieve it. I still remember when the PC platform was absolutely lousy soundwise -- it has now come a long way and in terms of digital audio it is bit perfect, if you choose the right tools. EAC or CueTools for ripping and a player like foobar2000 or XMPlay (or Resonic, for that matter) for playback are sound (pun intended) starting points...

@Emka, sorry for the delay. No, I didn`t post on the forums.

shnbwmn on 2016-07-22 12:25

Great player, especially with a few tweaks. I use Meier crossfeed[1] together with Dolby surround emulation[2]. What this does is it spreads the sound out, as if you're listening to a live performance, and greatly reduces ear strain when listening with headphones (which I do 99% of the time). Other pluses are that it uses my own music directory structure, is very fast (opens in a snap), and it uses windows native look instead of someone's idea of a great skin.

@shnbwmn: FYI, Viper4Windows is a free general purpose Windows sound processor that includes similar tweaks, among many others... (V4W homepage appears to be having issues currently, but Softpedia has it: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Other-AUDIO-Tools/ViPER4Windows.shtml). Also available as Viper4Android.

The last version - 1.84 - does not allow to change font in Settings... \ List style.

The official 1by1 (1.84) download link appears to be down currently...:-(
