is an intuitive audio player that integrates standard and comprehensive tools for delivering an enjoyable music listening experience. It targets all types of users, regardless of their skill level.
The installation procedure is quick and does not require special input from the user. The interface of musikCube is clean and simple to navigate.
You can add music to a library or collection from files, folders or Internet radio, and view the number, title, artist, album, genre, time and rating for all tracks, as well as select them by albums.
Standard audio player functions include volume level adjustment, equalizer configuration, audio stream navigation using a slider, shuffle and repeat modes, as well as a cross-fade effect.
Furthermore, you can create and rename static and dynamic playlists, move songs to another location or copy them as a safety measure (i.e. backups), as well as edit the query of a dynamic playlist (minimum SQL experience is necessary).
As far as tags go, you can rewrite them, convert to lowercase or uppercase, remove the extra whitespace, enable automatic capitalization, as well as get tags from or to a file name.
Additional features of musikCube let you assign ratings, view the audio properties of a file (e.g. bit rate, time added, last played), export the database files, synchronize data with custom directories, and customize the interface colors (e.g. active captions, buttons text). Plus, you can manage plugins, switch to full screen mode, as well as make the frame stay on top of other windows.
musikCube supports keyboard shortcuts, has a good response time, requires a minimum quantity of CPU and system memory, and minimizes to the system tray when minimized, thus it doesn’t disturb the user’s activity. We have not encountered any problems in our testing, since the tool did not hang, crash or pop up error notifications.
In conclusion, musikCube comprises a surprisingly wide set of options and configuration settings that make the audio player fit the user’s preferences, in addition to the clean GUI which doesn’t capture the user’s attention through unnecessary visual elements.
