Play almost all existing digital audio formats.

Overview

Pine Player is an exclusive music player for music lovers. It can play almost all existing digital audio formats such as MP3, FLAC, APE, AAC, M4A, WAV, AIFF, OGG, WMA, DSD, etc., and it also has a strong playback capability for listening to CUE files in the most convenient way.

Features:
  • Maximum 32-Bit, 768Khz Up-Sampling:
    • Pine Player supports various kinds of PCM formats, so it can play sound sources from 16 to 32 bit; it can also reproduce clear and abundant sound quality by supporting a maximum of 768kHz.
    • Pine Player’s unique Over Sampling Filter is a technique that upconverts an ordinary MP3 file into a 32bit, maximum of 768kHz, and high sound quality sound source and sends it to the DAC for it to be played in best performance. Ordinary MP3 files’ sound quality can actually be heard more clearly and plentifully. Obviously, HD audio files such as MQS and DSD can be upconverted to a maximum of 768kHz as well.
  • Convenient and Strong Playlist and Prevention of Text Cracking: Pine Player has a very convenient playlist because users can save and manage the music they wish to listen to, change the order of the music being played by simply dragging, and express any kind of language or text encoding perfectly because of its flawless decoding function. There is no Korean code cracking.
  • Cross Fade And Gapless Set-Up: Cross Fade function, which is a technique that decreases the gap between songs when listening to files on the playlist or overlaps the songs for no gaps at all, can be set into seconds.
  • Mass Storage Of Audio Queue For Real Time Converting: Pine Player prevents damage of sound quality by having a high-powered Audio Queue for processing excessive amount of digital data. Therefore, it takes a considerable amount of memory compared to other music players.
  • Automatic Isolation Of Damaged Sound Sources:
    • Pine Player has an automatic isolation function for damaged sound sources called Vault. If a damaged sound source is detected while playing the music, the music is stopped and taken to the Vault file for isolation. Through this convenient function, users can easily figure out which sound source is damaged and restore it.
    • Even with all these functions, Pine Player is a free app. Moreover, there are not any marketing or advertising material. Especially, no information including personal ones are sent to the outside or the Internet.

Wow! I wished for the volume to be unlinked from the System and voila it was after the latest update. That got another star!

Just want to point out that up sampling does NOT increase the quality of a file, since if it's at a lower resolution, that's the extent of the data in that file. Up sampling just doubles some bits without adding anything to the audio quality. For example, re-encoding a 128 kbps MP3 file to 320 will not magically improve the sound of that file.

Absolutely! I'm taking the opportunity to recall that any conversion from one sample rate to another one (especially down), or actually from a lossless format to a lossy one, may introduce what's called "intersample peaks", meaning that if the original file peaks near 0dB, the converted file may peak above 0dB and thus create clipping — in my most extreme tests, I found peaks at +3dB! (this happens especially in music that has huge audio compression and limiting).
Being a sound engineer, I indeed can't see the point of "upsampling" except when mixing various sources in a DAW — or processing them in anyway, slowing them down, etc.
This sounds rather like a marketing argument... (in the first place, music lovers won't listen to lossy formats hoping to make them sound as good as lossless ones ;-) )
N.B.: of course, there's something called "oversampling" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oversampling) but it's used in hardware converters, not in software.
Those interested may read Bob Katz's "Mastering Audio" book.

Out of Xmas boredom, I've just tested an mp3 conversion of Reality by David Bowie (good song but one of the many casualties of the Loudness War), from an already converted aac version at 160 Kbps VBR (49135 clippings on the left channel!) to 320 Kbps CBR.
The resulting file has 54385 clippings on left channel.
If there was a need to prove that re-encoding audio files, even to a supposed better quality, is dispensable, I think we've got it. ;-)

It's good, lightweight. It's not the prettiest thing. Feature request; unlink the volume control from the system at large.

Version 1.9.17
I had no trouble with the download (version 1.9.13) from the App Store. The app works just fine in my limited testing. I didn't try anything fancy. On the plus side, it plays songs from my iTunes playlists just fine. However, it didn't actually import any playlists, it just grabbed the track names in alphabetical order. This means I have to search for songs by title or recreate my playlists from scratch, ugh! One feature Pine Player lacks is an equalizer. This seems like a serious oversight. So I'll ding it one star for the inadequate iTunes playlist import and the lack of an equalizer. Though I could use something like Boom to provide that function, it would be better if it were built into the app.

First of all, I don't write reviews often (since I can never keep them short haha) but in this case I somehow feel for the developer as he/she is trying hard to make a really great audioplayer and I want to give it the credits it has deserved so far. I'm enthousiastic about this app as the search for a proper multifunctional audioplayer on OS X has kept me searching and longing for years after trying, using and switching between multiple players since Snow Leopard. Yes, I've practically tried them all.... Especially now MacAmp Lite X (which I liked a lot due to the seriously epic audio scrobbling/FF function no other app ever had) is dead since my upgrade to El Capitan, Cog is practically dying too and Vox, my used to be final player with moderate satisfaction, is starting to become annoying, slow, buggy and bloated now with too much annoying stuff in the latest versions so the quest has continued again.... Now the people below leaving 1 star reviews when they haven't even tried the app is a bit ridiculous, and harsh, don't you think? Why don’t you download it from the MAS store then?? That works fine…It's free! Give the developer some credit.. I have to admit, the developer could do a better job by checking his/her site because the downloads indeed don't seem to work and although system says they finish, it leaves a corrupted .zip file which appears useless. This happens to all .zip files unfortunately so def. something wrong in the packaging of these, developer? I have to say, I've been searching for years and using a lot of different music players over the years but this one really got me. I like the minimalistic design although it does look a bit ugly and "too oldschool" almost like the player design has been copied from an old Windows Media player on Windows 98….but the UI in general is logical and has lots of useful functions. Though there is still quite some things left to desire like the language is not so good in English with spelling/grammar errors everywhere (and I understand it is not his/her native language) also the logo is bit childish and ugly and I hope the developer will change or tweak that soon but for now the extended functionality and speed of the app is really what I like (on Macbook Pro 2009 El Capitan). It plays about everything an the sound quality is seriously good. Converting is also fine. I've compared it to other paid converters like Switch and some online converting sites but the result is equal (to my ears at least and I'm not your standard audio listener) and the files sound and play perfect. Also the Metadata editing/tagging right on the fly is very nice! It works and is equal as fast as other Tagging apps I’ve tried. And definitely faster than iTunes tagging but that's not so hard since iTunes is shit in everything it does.... I do start to get slowly annoyed now since the update frequency is very high which is good and I feel for the developer since he/she is dedicated in making it better but the last 1.9 versions all following up too often after each other and are very buggy now as compared to 1.8 and earlier which all worked fine... The audio scrobbling when moving the slider during a song is very buggy now and the playing time keeps hanging and suddenly cuts off the song and moves to the next. Also adding files to the Queue/playlist is buggy now and cause hangs or crash. Now the developer site is all in Korean as far as Google Translate tells me and hard to navigate since the language selector also doesn't work so I'm trying to help you and contact you, developer out there! Hopefully you read this, and my e-mail I sent you and get a stable version out asap and fix the .zip download links of earlier versions cos I'm stuck now with a crashing buggy version (1.9.9) and want to revert to an older version but is not possible at the moment... Last but not least people, it’s free (for now) but I don’t mind donating to help out the developer because the potential here is absolutely great. Big up! 4 stars and when the above is fixed and design is also topped up definitely 5 stars for me!

I like a lot the minimalist design, and I am appreciating it to play offline tracks. I did not test converting though. I've experienced some little issues, but I've noticed that the developer is bringing many updates and solved most. Download it from the Mac App Store.

In fact, the most recent version is 1.8.8, but, just like last fall, the download failed, so I could not install this software. I have tried it in two web browsers, Safari, and Firefox.
