A small and comprehensive multimedia player which is capable of rendering nearly any audio file for you to enjoy your favorite music

editor's review






Music is found under a large variety of formats in order to enhance quality or reduce space. Nowadays, nearly all major media players are capable or rendering anything you throw at them. Amongst the existing industry giants, 1by1 wants to keep every aspect simple, easy and accessible to anyone.

Lightweight and easy to use

Going through the setup process only allows you to blink, as it is completed fast and without much effort required on your behalf. It uses incredibly little of your system resources and nor does it take much space on the hard disk drive.

The interface put at your disposal is nothing out of the ordinary, with an upper toolbar being home to all available features found under small, intuitive buttons. The rest of the space is dedicated to an explorer that helps you quickly locate files, a playlist and the “Big View”, which is nothing more than a bar visualization that also displays track related info.

Integrated hotkey support

Going under the hood and bringing up the options menu unveils a highly configurable window. You can take advantage of an enhancer it order to increase quality of sound. In addition, this can manually be done with the help of an equalizer. Unfortunately, these cannot be toggled in the main window, making it a little difficult to navigate through.

You can also use your keyboard buttons to activate specific functions like play/pause, stop, next and so on. A few presets are available, such as keys from F8 to F12, media keys with or without volume, or can choose to configure them and use custom key combinations.

The application also puts an option at your disposal which creates quick access points for up to three external applications. This comes in handy, as you can quickly look up lyrics over the web using an integrated function and bring up a text editor and have them saved.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that 1by1 is a practical media player which you find pleasant and easy to use. Your computer won't feel a thing from running it due to the clever optimization, being compatible with various configurations.
