Replayer (Classic) is a free, cue-based Windows desktop media player for rehearsals with playback music. By the click of a button, you can start to play at predefined times in the audio file.
The classic version has been superseded by the new Replayer web app.
If the folder, from which Replayer is started, already contains a compilation, it is loaded. Or you use the demo compilation from the project page. Otherwise, you create your own compilation using the wizard via “Compilation/Create new...” in the menu.
Creating a new compilation from the menu
The wizard for creating a new compilation
On the next steps, create your compilation. You will be able to change and add stuff as needed. The last loaded compilation is automatically loaded again at the next application start-up.
To navigate to a specific cue point, you have 2 options:
Navigation using the mouse
Navigation using the keyboard
All frequently used actions are available via specific shortcut keys. For convenience, most of them are available from the numeric keypad.
To add cues, simply hit F12 while playing.
To modify the properties of the compilation itself, use Compilation/Edit. To modify a track or a cue, right-click on the item in question and select Edit from the context menu.
Editing an item
This type of compilation contains a list of tracks with their cue points. Each track refers to an external media file on the local file system. The content of the media file is not part of the compilation.
This type is a ZIP archive (as a single file), containing an XML compilation plus the complete set of referenced media files. This allows distributing ready-to-use compilations as a single file.
Disclaimer: You are responsible for respecting the copyright of the distributed media files. The author of Replayer denies all responsibilities for any potential copyright infringement.
In Compilation/Save as... in the application menu, you may choose to save the current compilation to another file or into another type of compilation. Replayer converts and saves the current compilation into the chosen type as necessary.
Replayer supports exporting to a quirli web-page, which is a browser version of Replayer. See the quirli player for more information.
To deploy your compilation for rehearsals, just provide the compilation along with a copy of Replayer.EXE. Upon first use on a new computer, Replayer automatically loads the first compilation in the same directory.
You can define a specific compilation to load at startup:
