Aqualung

Aqualung

Aqualung is an advanced, gapless Gtk-based audio player.

Aqualung plays audio CDs, internet radio streams and podcasts and well as soundfiles in all popular formats. It also has the feature of inserting no gaps between adjacent tracks, as well as high quality sample rate conversion between the file and the output device.

Audio CDs can be played back and ripped with on-the-fly conversion to WAV, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis or CBR/VBR MP3 (gapless via LAME). Seamless tagging of the created files is offered as part of the process. Internet radio stations streaming Ogg Vorbis or MP3 are supported. Subscribing to RSS and Atom audio podcasts is supported: Aqualung can automatically download and add new files to the Music Store. Optional limits for the age, size and number of downloaded files can be set.

Features include:

  • Clear, simple and uncluttered interface
  • Almost all sample-based, uncompressed formats (e.g. WAV, AIFF, AU etc.) are supported
  • Files encoded with FLAC (the Free Lossless Audio Codec), Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Speex, MPEG Audio (including the infamous MP3 format) and MOD audio formats (MOD, S3M, XM, IT, etc.), Musepack are also supported
  • Internet radio stations streaming Ogg Vorbis or MP3 are supported
  • Play music through OSS, ALSA or using the JACK Audio Connection Kit
  • Ability to convert sample rates between the input file and the output device, from downsampling by a factor of 12 to upsampling by the same factor
  • Playlist tabs allow users to have multiple playlists for music at the same time, very similar to multiple tabbed browsing in Firefox
  • Volume and balance controls (not touching the soundcard mixer)
  • Support for multiple skins
  • Support for random seeking during playback
  • Track repeat, List repeat and Shuffle mode (besides normal playback). In track repeat mode the looping range is adjustable (A-B repeat). It is possible to set the looping boundaries via a single keystroke while listening to the track
  • Display and edit Ogg Xiph comments, ID3v1, ID3v2 and APE tags found in files that support them. When exporting tracks to a different file format, metadata is preserved
  • All windows are sizable. Users can stretch the main window horizontally for more accurate seeking
  • Control any running instance of the program remotely from the command line (start, stop, pause etc). Remote loading or enqueueing soundfiles as well as complete playlists is also supported
  • State persistence via XML config files. Aqualung will come up in the same state as it was when you closed it, including playback modes, volume and balance settings, currently processing LADSPA plugins, window sizes, positions and visibility, and other miscellaneous options
  • Supports the LADSPA 1.1 plugin standard. Use any suitable plugin to enhance the music
