XMPlay is an open-source audio player for Windows operating systems, written in C. It was developed by a group of software engineers in the United States, who wanted to create a freely available audio recording program that worked well with the Windows operating system. Originally released in 1998, it has become one of the most popular freeware audio players for Windows operating systems. XMPlay can handle a number of different audio file formats, and the majority of these formats today have been adapted to work well with Windows computers.
Although the majority of Windows computer users have heard of XMPlay, there are also a good deal of people who have never heard of it. This is unfortunate since XMPlay and its plugins have been instrumental in the creation of many popular online music sharing and recording services. Many of the freeware recording applications available on the Internet have used XMPlay as their main recording source. There are many people who use freeware programs such as GarageBand, ProTools, Cubase, ProSonic or Sonar to create great sounding audio files, but have never been able to publish them due to limitations in the digital recording file formats they used. With the help of XMPlay, they are able to share their recordings with the rest of the world and have their work recognized by music labels and industry professionals.
One example of the uses of XMPlay that shows just how versatile this piece of software can be is when it comes to handling various audio formats. For example, if you want your computer to play a variety of MP3 and other high-quality audio formats (such as lossless or lossy) out of your audio player, you need only plug it into XMPlay's USB port to do so. This plug and play method make it easy for any user to convert their audio files into compatible formats with their computer by just using their favorite audio player. If you are interested in experiencing a whole new way in how you record and manage your audio files and other media, XM playback is definitely something you need to check out!
