Professional Reviews

Hans van Galen

Most music players being sold on the internet today require a complex learning curve, and in some cases manual creation of intricate playlists in Javascript or XML; in others you need to know server side scripts. Only a few of them offer a tool as complete and as intuitive as this control panel.

Maybe it's the existence of this tool (as the variety of interfaces) that motivates me to recommend this music player to my clients. It is the product that I have used in the majority of my projects for third parties.

The mix of all its functionalities: from audio files management to the playlist generation and publication of music player, all in the same interface, make this product a required solution in the music market, where the main providers, the musicians, are usually not good computer programmers but instead are keen consumers of tools that allow them to publish their work as quickly and easily as possible.

Julius Godin - Producer

Every time I go for new clients, I create a new music player with a possible compilation disc to demonstrate them what the final product would sound like.

Seth Spencer - Teacher

I use the music player to publish my conferences for my students, I don't know very much about website development, but through this control panel I do it in a very straightforward manner.

Ralph Peters - Blogger

My passion is to write about the beautiful things of everyday, my friends recommend me to use a relaxant song in background to complete the look and feel of my blogs. To be honest this music player has satisfied my expectations.
