1by1 audio player

1by1 - Screenshot

1by1 is a no-frills audio player that lets users browse their music collections much as they would in Windows Explorer. There's not a lot to it, but we appreciated its simplicity and its unique design.

The program's interface is quite plain, with a tree-style directory on the left showing the contents of the user's computer, and a pane on the right showing selected files. Users can browse through the directory just as they would for any other file, or they can have the program search forward or backward for audio files. Despite its simplicity, the program's interface does offer several options for customization, including changeable background and text colors and the capability for the user to specify what kind of information is displayed for each track.  It does feature an equalizer and audio enhancer, and has quite a few settings that let the user customize their experience. We do wish that the program had come with a Help file, although there's not too much about it that the average user couldn't figure out. Overall, 1by1 neither impressed nor offended us; it's a simple audio player that will let you listen to your songs without much fuss. Sometimes, that's enough.


“1by1 is free. The program comes as a ZIP file and installs a desktop icon without asking, but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users”
