A simple, yet useful music player for musicians. It simply plays an audio file (mp3, wav, flac, ogg… whatever libavcodec supports), with the possibility to have an A-B-replay (i.e. a loop of only a part of the song). Both markers can be set very fine grained, to make it easy to match an exact bar. (+/- 10 ms).
This is very handy, if you want to play along some part of a song.
