Vox 0.2.7 RC1 released

The dev version 0.2.7 RC1 of Vox is now available with a lot of new features and bug fixes; the minimum system requirement is now Leopard, change needed for better support of new systems and the integration of new features.

These are the most important changes:

  • Cue sheet support
  • iTunes Drag & Drop support
  • Menubar controls
  • Integrated "Bauer stereophonic-to-binaural" option
  • BiQuad filter for Equalizer
  • Retuned Equalizer
  • "Move to Trash" confirmation option
  • MP3/MP2/MP1 prescan option
  • Timeout for artwork downloads
  • Musepack SV8 support
  • SD2 and OGA support
  • 64-bit floating-point WAVE/AIFF support
  • Added High Efficiency and Low Delay AAC profile export option
  • Removed all MP3 related code
  • Removed QuickTime dependency
  • Dropped Mac OS X 10.4 support
  • Bug fixes

Note: this is an RC version, so only bug fixes will be added in the final stable release.

Go Back

The lack of 10.4 support makes me a sad panda :'( I love Vox however, and will continue to use 0.26 and recommend this app to others. Thank you for making the best minimal audio player for the mac :-)

Great app!

It would be great if the folder loading support at least 2 levels. I have alot of 2CD albums (**) and i have to listen to them folder by folder.

• • CD1
• • CD2

Awesome work, its the best media player for osx. It would be great to have a simple playlist panel where drop some files.
I hope my little donation will help you continue this great project.

hey, the apple remote works again! thanks, man.

Another: When a track ends the progress indicator is stuck in the end of the line and not change to the next cue track :(

Hi! I find a bug :P My cue file looks like this:

TITLE "Masters Of Hardcore Chapter XXVIII - Pole Position Lap II"
FILE "1.mp3" MP3
TITLE "Pole Position (LapII Anthem)"
PERFORMER "Noize Suppressor"
INDEX 01 00:00:00

Vox only shows the "main" artist but I have multiple artists in my cue file. Is possible a fix for this bug?

Congratulations, very nice app. Could you add the ogg format to the Export options?


great work! i haven't tried the new dev yet but any update is a good update, considering you're a busy guy. no apple remote fix mentioned on the release notes but priorities first.

@leon buijs
you might wanna try


from the site:

antipop uses Mac OS X's 'say' binary to speak a single space every 10 seconds. While this will not produce any audible output, it will prevent Mac OS X from putting the sound system to sleep. By default, antipop will only do this when the laptop is plugged-in -- when on battery, the sound system will sleep normally.

you may tweak it to operate every 1 second so you won't need to use vox just for keeping your receiver from sleeping.

@everyone who might be interested

considering the lack of playlist or library window for many players (image, audio and video) i'm using


which is like a simplified finder which honors your folder structure (no library, moving, copying or messing with your files).
it has many flexible preferences and opens your files in your player of choice.

just a couple of suggestions.

vox hung on me when trying to load some artwork in various mp3's. not all but some. processor usage went to 100% on one core. all artwork shows up show up fine in finder and i added them myself using mp3tag on windows.
