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, SACD ISO 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.

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.

What’s New

Temporarily improves pop noise issues on the 2018 MacBook Pro model. This problem occurs in some models of the sound driver and pop noise when initializing the sound driver. I noticed the same noise when playing music on iTunes. Basically I expect Apple to update the sound driver.

Nice and Simple

I am not trying to replace iTunes, but sometimes I don’t need something that big or complex. Pine Player gives me the possibility of playing, listening and deciding whether I want to keep a song and add it to iTunes. It plays a variety of formats, including FLAC, and the display easily allows me to see the format of the file. I don’t want social media connections and so far I don’t have to worry about it with Pine Player. Right now, it has everything I need. Siseong Ahn, keep up the good work!!! Thanks.

Edit: Wow! Pine Player can play most of the newly minted formats such as MQA, DSD and some DSF — a pleasantly surprising bonus!!

Pretty good free player

Good for a free product. Would really like to see option in menu to change hotkeys, for example set Space to Play/Pause (because unfortunately, it’s impossible to change it to Space via MacOS shortcuts). Also would be great to be able to stretch it horizontally to see lenghty names, and to have more than one playlist that we can switch between. Overall good product, thanks for making it!

Simply Brilliant

This app does everything it promises in the description. Its a full featured FLAC player. Sound reproduction, for any critical listening is superb. Thank you developer for providing a means to enjoy FLAC files in such a simple way. The graphic equalizer sounds amazing. The updates are wonderful. Best out there for Mac in my honest opinion!
