Universal Module Player or UModPlayer, is a audio module "tool-chain", providing you functions to work with modules like playing, exporting, getting information, and more.

Universal Module Player works in UNIX-like platforms, including Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris...

It uses the Custom LibModPlug audio library, an improved version of the well-known LibModPlug library, supporting more than 20 formats and giving you high playing quality. It uses LibSDL to handle multiplatform sound support.

Here are some key features of "Universal Module Player":
You can play the supported formats and seek to any order in the song. You have pause, timer, display, and other standard features.
You can view the pattern notes while playing.
You can specify noise reduction, megabass, surround, reverb sound options specifying the grade and the delay of most of the options.
You can create, save and edit playlists to play a selection of modules.
You can read and export to a file the song builtin message, the song instrument names and the song sample names.
Each user of your UNIX box can save all the sound options.
And much more!

Supported Formats

What's New in This Release:
Buffer length fixes.
Playlist commands were a pain. Now we use the first letter of the command name. Also, pressing ENTER does not quit, the user has to explicitly specify to quit pressing 'q'
Hopefully fixed AIFF exporting bug.
New section in the README about LibAo configuration, and some misc. rearrangements.
