Pine Player is an exclusive listening digital music player for music lovers who use the OSX operating system. It can play almost all existing digital audio forms such as MP3, FLAC, APE, AAC, M4A, WAV, AIFF, OGG, WMA, DSD etc. and it also has a strong playing capability for listening to CUE files in the most convenient way.
1. Maximum 32Bit 768kHz Up Sampling Function
Pine Player supports various kinds of PCM formats, so it can play sound sources from 16 to 32 bit; it can also reproduce clear and abundant sound quality by supporting a maximum of 768kHz.
Pine Player’s unique Over Sampling Filter is a technique that upconverts an ordinary MP3 file into a 32bit, maximum of 768kHz, and high sound quality sound source and sends it to the DAC for it to be played in best performance. Ordinary MP3 files’ sound quality can actually be heard more clearly and plentifully. Obviously, HD audio files such as MQS and DSD can be upconverted to a maximum of 768kHz as well.
2. Convenient and Strong Playlist & Prevention of Text Cracking
Pine Player has a very convenient playlist because users can save and manage the music they wish to listen to, change the order of the music being played by simply dragging, and express any kind of language or text encoding perfectly because of its flawless decoding function. There is no Korean code cracking.
3. Cross Fade and Gapless set-up
Cross Fade function, which is a technique that decreases the gap between songs when listening to files on the playlist or overlaps the songs for no gaps at all, can be set into seconds.
4. Mass Storage of Audio Queue for Real Time Converting
Pine Player prevents damage of sound quality by having a high-powered Audio Queue for processing excessive amount of digital data. Therefore, it takes a considerable amount of memory compared to other music players.
5. Automatic Isolation of Damaged Sound Sources
Pine Player has an automatic isolation function for damaged sound sources called Vault. If a damaged sound source is detected while playing the music, the music is stopped and taken to the Vault file for isolation. Through this convenient function, users can easily figure out which sound source is damaged and restore it.
Even with all these functions, Pine Player is a free app. Moreover, there are not any marketing or advertising material. Especially, no information including personal ones are sent to the outside or the Internet.

Very Nice FLAC Player - I needed a FLAC player for my iMac. I tried Pine Player and found it to be fairly easy to use and it sounds great. There are not a lot of features and that is exactly what I was looking for. I found that on the whole It was pretty intuitive. My only complaint, and it is small one, is that is the doumentation is a little sparse especially on how to use playlists. If you had a lot of music in there it might get a little complicated keeping track of everything. But as I was looking for a simple music player that would play FLAC files this one works fine. Update #1 I’ve been using Pine Player for a while now and have discovered that you can use it to convert your files to a few different compression rates of mp3, AAC and FLAC as well as wav. I’ve used this a quite a bit and it has worked well for me. I’ve also noticed that they update Pine Player quite frequently fixing bugs and such, which I really appreciate. The more I use it the more I like it. Good job people!!

Looks simple and nice - Weird performance. When you play music, it feels like your computer is screaming at you. I have uninstalled it. Update: Recently updated, looks good but the volume resets after every song, pretty frustrating. For now, uninstalled again!! Update 2: I am really disliking this program. It contineously asks me to give permission to play the song, it plays the song anyways…BUT, it keeps opening window after windows for permission. There is also no support, links direct you to a page with a bunch of Chinese!!! information, no way to contact the developer. Update 3: Save your money and buy a bottle of water for yourself…I will take a star back (freezes, kernel panic) Update 4: ok, now we are talking. It seems that the developer has fixed all the problems that i was having. I paid for it but now it is free…go for it.
