SoundBase is a single executable file, that can be put in any directory. Only after it starts it will create a database and an ini file in the same directory it is started from. SoundBase doesn't use any registry settings, nor does it require a skinfile, so you can also use soundbase if you have only limited access rights, or user control over your pc.
Soundbase was created to fill a gap in the large amount of free and commercial mp3 players. We do not pretend to have the ultimate mp3 or audio solution, but it will most likely fit somewhere into your mp3 playing experience. As a player, as a tag editor or as an organizer. It will always give you a quick way of doing common tasks.
Soundbase uses the Microsoft® DirectShow architecture. DirectShow provides high-quality capture and playback of multimedia streams. It supports a wide variety of formats, including MPEG Audio Layer-3 (MP3), OGG Vorbis (OGG), Monkey Audio (APE), and FLAC sound files. It automatically detects and uses audio acceleration hardware when available, but also supports systems without acceleration hardware.
You might need to read the help section on installing more sophisticated formats (ape, flac, ogg) to enable playback for those files. The help section provides you with links to free
