Trout is a Windows audio player with nice features


Description:  My main audio player for many years has been, and will remain, foobar, but there are some times when I just want a simple "load'n'play" type of player.  An application that comes very close is Billy.  It's a fantastic little app that fits in with my preferences in software design i.e. standard controls, no skins, etc.  However, it only supports MP3, WAV, OGG, & FLAC and it also doesn't display or use tags.  Unfortunately, my audio collection comprises many more formats than that and I tag files like a man possessed.  So, with that in mind, I've always wanted to write my own simple player.  A good friend and I wrapped the BASS audio engine in AutoHotkey and I've written a player called Trout.
