xmms-crossfade is an output plugin for XMMS.
Version: 0.3.14xmms-crossfade is an output plugin for XMMS. Its main feature is automatic crossfading. xmms-crossfade also removes the gaps between tracks, to play whole MP3 albums without any audible interruption.
Operating System: Linux
xmms-crossfade supports OSS via a builtin driver, and any other platform by using existing output plugins. As of version 0.3.9, the Audacious and BMP players are also supported.
Here are some key features of "xmms crossfade":
· Crossfade between two songs, i.e. fade out the end of the current song while fading in the beginning of the next for a smooth transition. Length and volume of the fadings can be adjusted separately for fading in and out.
· Smoothly fadein/fadeout at the beginning or end of playback.
· Keeps the audio device opened when switching from one song to the next. When used with the Gap-Killer, this allows for seamless playback of whole albums without any audible interruption between the tracks.
· Removes the short gaps of silence at the beginning and/or end of mp3 files. These gaps are caused by some mp3-encoders.
Automatic detection of live albums:
· Automatically detects live albums and pre-mixed tracks which already are crossfaded. For those tracks, crossfading can be disabled automatically.
· XMMS-crossfade can take special care to avoid the clicks some soundcards produce when suddenly being stopped. Also, it can improve quality when seeking within a song.
Secondary effect plugin:
· XMMS-crossfade allows you to select a second effect plugin. This is usefull for example when using the volume normalizing plugin together with the icecast plugin.
What's New in This Release:
· The automatic song change and end-of-playlist settings were not working correctly with using audacious.
· This has been fixed.
· The software mixer has also been improved.
· The volume setting is now applied just before sending the audio data to the output plugin, resulting in faster response.
