musikcube 3.0.2

5 from 1 Reviews

musikcube is a helpful application which does audio playback and also works as a music library.

The audio formats supported by musikcube are MP3, APE, FLAC, OGG and audio CD.

The main features of musikcube are batch tagging, drag and drop file import, fast navigation, an intuitive interface, a very low memory footprint and the integrated CD ripper and cross fader.

musikcube allows you to create libraries by using music from various files on your local disk but also from Internet radio channels. For each track, you can view information such as title, artist, album, genre, time and rating. Ratings can be easily assigned by you due to the intuitive and user-friendly interface of musikCube.

Besides the usual information about your music (artist, album, genre and so on), you have access to audio properties of files (time added, last played, bitrate etc.)

But isn’t it too hard to deal with so much information? In fact, no, because you can tag songs and search certain files using criteria like genre, year or artist.

High-level differences between musikcube v1 and musikcube v3 include::

- A completely cross platform terminal-based user interface, supporting Windows, macOS, Linux, FreeBSD and Haiku OS
- Redesigned plugin API that allows for audio decoders, encoders, playback and play-queue manipulation, visualizers, data streams, data indexers, digital signal processing and more
- A well defined remote API that allows for easy client integration: see here
- Gapless playback
- Multi-architecture support, including (but not limited to) x86, amd64, arm64 and armv6
- Remote access: stream audio from musikcube instances running on other computers
- Fully localizable, bundled with many community-provided locales
- Headless operation on Unix-based platforms via daemon
- Support for ReplayGain during playback
- Regex searching and filtering
- Full Unicode support across all platforms

Full list of changes.

The limitations of this application are minimal: the lack of a Help menu and occasional runtime errors while attempting to create playlists.

musikCube is the favorite music player of many users, due to its clean and intuitive interface, to its wide range of configuration options and to the low amount of system resources it needs.

More than an application which just opens audio files, it is a reliable music workstation which is easy to organize and work with.
