Sound Vibe is a software tool which was specifically developed in order to aid individuals in listening to audio tracks, creating playlists and reading lyrics.
Modern and easy-to-handle environment
The installation process does not bring any kind of unpleasant surprises and does not last longer than a few moments, while the interface you come by presents a minimal and modern design. It is comprised of few playback controls (play, stop, next, previous), a panel where to display audio files and few other ones which let you view information pertaining to the artist, song and lyrics.
All user types can learn how to get around it with great ease, including beginners and highly experienced people.
Using Sound Vibe it is possible to listen to music in formats such as AIFF, AAC, AC3, OGG, FLAC, APE, WAV, WMA, MP3 and MID, and you can also listen to audio tracks from the Internet, by providing the URL or to audio CDs. All uploaded files can be viewed in the main window along with artist, title, total length and album. Furthermore, they can be saved to the hard drive as a PLS or M3U playlist, as well as a RTF, HTML or CSV list.
Configuring and tweaking options
It is also possible to view information about the artist in a separate panel, along with detected lyrics, details about the song such as total size, sample rate and bit rate. You can rate all songs using a five star system, as well as view a list of similar artists. Clicking on the latter enables you open a new tab in your default web browser, with the artist’s page on Last.fm.
You can also access a simple ripper and an audio converter, which enables you to create FLAC, MP3, MAC, WMA, WAV or OGG file, to a custom location on the hard drive.
