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.

shnbwmn on 2016-05-17 21:37

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. :)

Since latest version -at least- the exe file can't be extracted with Universal Extractor / Pea Extractor / 7Zip.
Only results in 0 bits sized files.

webfork on 2017-05-21 22:22

kanu: thanks for your post but I just tested both with UniExtractor and 7zip and both worked fine.

kanu on 2017-05-23 05:20

webfork: Thanks for answering. It looks like the file I got from MajorGeeks is corrupted because I redownloaded and still didn't extract correctly. I searched for another host and now all the files extract as usual.
(Looks like I can't post vtotal urls here)

There are lighter lightweight players with more features, but this is a single executable player that doesn't seem to "cheat" by using OS decoders. It starts instantly and the interface looks very nice (truly minimalistic and not just tiny and clumped up). I'm very much missing a time slider though. That's not a small feature to leave out of a media player. It only has fast forward and reverse, which is not very useful for things like skimming trough mixes.

MIKLO on 2017-01-27 17:51

I like this player, very small footprint, fast open, thanks for a nice music player. I didn't have to do anything it went right to my music folder and was ready to go and on my computer is only 2.04 Mb in size. Works 4ME thanks again.

I agree with User2100. This is a very fast launching player with a very small footprint, but the lack of a time slider is a big issue.

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.

Realist on 2016-10-06 16:25

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

MIKLO on 2017-01-15 17:15

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

System Requirements: Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

Stealth: ? Yes

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch resonic.exe.
What's new? New Features:
  • Pro: Batch Targets feature (batch processing.)
    Fixed copy/move/decode/convert target folders can be created in the new right sidebar
    (which can be toggled with F6, analogous to the left sidebar and F4) by dragging folders
    onto the 'Targets' tab.
    Each target can receive files and folders for whatever action is assigned to it.
    Additional conversion options are available through the right-click menu, ranging from
    simple copy/move to audio decoding (to .wav), sample format conversion (bit depth,
    sample rate, channel count).
    Targets are accessible from the (new) right sidebar (through F6, or the button in the status bar),
    which is shown by default on first start of a fresh installation.
    More features are to be added in future versions.
    See https://resonic.at/docs/batch-targets for more information.
  • Pro: Recording feature ('what you hear'.)
    Press the record button (transport bar) to record what is currently being played through Resonic,
    including pitch shifting, volume, seeking, live looping, and slice triggering via keyboard keys.
    Recorded audio is stored as .wav files in the 'Recorded Audio' folder in the Resonic user
    profile (in user 'Documents') which is also directly accessible through the browser.
    Click the status message after recording to start playing the file directly.
    This feature is intended to be used for sound design, creative idea finding, or as an audio sketch pad.
    To use recording you must use either a WASAPI or ASIO device for playback.
  • Pro: Musical spectrum and its note/octave estimation have been reduced to a more
    useful range of keys (C0..G8), bar scaling has been updated, bars are now colored
    by average intensity, and fading peak hold has been added.
  • Pro: Standard MIDI files are now fully integrated into the Resonic meta core,
    estimating MIDI file duration, reading copyright, timed markers with labels,
    musical key (first key signature change), track count (non-empty tracks),
    MIDI format (0, 1, or 2), pattern count (for format 2 files), PPQ, and tempo in BPM.
    If there are multiple tempo changes in a file an average tempo will be displayed
    in the file list, and the BPM will be put in brackets.
    As a special feature Resonic also displays the number of unique instrument patches
    used in the MIDI file in the 'Instrument Count' column.
  • Pro: Added 'Cropped Audio' to browser to quickly access this standard folder in the
    Resonic user profile (in user 'Documents'.)
  • Pro: Crop progress display in status bar,
    for both the "Crop selection" and the "Crop selection and play" feature.
  • Pro: Added right-click menu to A-B button for a few selection commands.
    Note that the Play, Stop, and Headphones buttons also have their own right-click menus.
  • Pro: The current mouse-selected region in the waveform is now automatically saved before
    it is modified or cleared, which means you won't accidentally lose the the region.
    The last region can be restored by right-clicking the A-B button, or through the marker
    button menu, using "Restore last selection."
    If a region already exists and a new one is created this feature toggles between
    the last one and the current one.
    This feature is also available as a global hotkey.
  • Pro: Much improved behavior of "Crop selection and play" feature (renders the selected
    waveform region to a new audio file and starts playing it):
    Before the new (cropped) file starts playing the selected waveform region is cleared,
    the current pitch settings (semitones/cents) are cleared, and the loop button
    is enabled (repeating the new file.)
    Note that the last selected region can now also be restored through the marker
    menu, or by right-clicking the A-B button ("Restore last selection".)
  • Pro: New global hotkey for "Loop on/off", which toggles single-file repeat.
  • Pro: AIFF metadata improvements, and reading comment chunks.
  • It is now possible to run different copies of Resonic Pro and Player at the same time
    as long as the database paths are different.
    You could for example start a portable Player, a portable Pro, another portable Pro,
    and a regularily installed Pro in parallel.
    Starting the same copy multiple times is not supported yet; it was removed
    during the Alpha to Beta rework for database stability reasons.
  • You can now CTRL-C the version information when the about dialog is open.
  • Headphones crossfeed presets (BS2B); right-click the headphones button
    to access them. (#1224)
  • New item in column popup menu to quickly hide the clicked column.
  • Pro: Metadata support for compressed AIFF files (.aifc).
  • Added indication of floating point files in bit depth column (using an 'f', e.g., "32f")
  • Pro: Additional metadata support for AES CART chunks.
    Available via columns: artist, title, category, cut id, client id, comment.
  • Pro: Metadata support for Scott Studios (SS32) Wave files, used in radio automation
    and broadcast systems.
    Available via columns: artist, title, cut id, comment.
    Available via waveform: intro end position, segue position.
    (requested: G. Zlot)
  • Pro: Segue (track transition in radio automation), intro markers, and other CART triggers
    are now read from CART/SS32 metadata and displayed in Resonic's waveform as a dashed line.
  • Pro: Addtional metadata support for BSI Wave files (Broadcast Software International),
    used in radio automation and broadcast systems.
    Available via columns: recording year, agency (as copyright), copyright / record label / publisher
    (as publisher), copy / notes (as subject), genre, music key, composer, album, tempo in bpm,
    and track number.
    Available via waveform: hook start position.
  • Pro: Added new broadcast columns "Cut Number ID" and "Client ID" (CART).
  • Essential fixes from the last Pro release were ported to Resonic Player.
  • Utility feature to resize main window to a fixed size, offering a selection of preset sizes,
    which assists in making videos or screenshots of a certain size.
    (see 'Menu | Advanced | Resize main window'.)

Improvements:
  • File list items appear faster when pasted (using the CTRL-V shortcut.)
  • Faster startup with bookmarks that point to mapped network drives, or network locations.
  • Folders can be moved and deleted more reliably as they are unlocked more intelligently
    when necessary, e.g., during drag and drop move in browser.
  • More detailed information in column popup menu.
    It's also easier to find the clicked column and its metadata group
    which both now appear in bold.
  • Opus decoder updated to libOpus 1.2.1 for reduced CPU usage during decoding.
    https://people.xiph.org/~jm/opus/opus-1.2/
  • MIDI renderer now more resilient in handling invalid XG sysex messages.
  • Some file list copy/paste improvements and fixes.

Corrections:
  • Pro: Playback of REX2 mono files.
  • Fixed taskbar quick controls (buttons) disappearing after a while on Windows 10.
  • Aborting a metadata scan in folders with lots of files could make one CPU core hang
    at a hundred percent usage.
  • Corrected several drag & drop related issues in the browser.
  • Pro: Fixed error message shown on every key press when Map temporary slices to letter keys
    is enabled (for fast slice auditioning) and there are no temporary slices set.

Just realized new version supports dsd in wavpack: "Support for high-resolution DSD audio files compressed with WavPack, i.e. compressed DSF/DFF in .wv files. Note that while DSD-in-WV saves quite a bit of space (in our tests 35-50%) it also takes a bit longer to decode (e.g. to prepare the waveform.)"

@two who are you to call @Realist a troll ? WTF seems a person that flames is a troll, IMHO he was just giving his take on the software review, which I happen to agree with, so am I also a "TROLL"? Sound=music is a very subjective matter which I have heard being discussed since the "4 track" days, as the saying goes one mans junk is another mans gold... at least that's the saying. Try and lighten up on the name calling as it serves no useful purpose here.
