Best VSt Mp3 Player ???

Post by Guest » Thu Aug 05, 2004 7:47 am

actually I think more like simple, something with not alot of features or super easy to use, and great quality, I don't need it for djing I just want it
for playing parts of mp3s in Live and recording the output on alternate live tracks this is basicly for sampling off of mp3s. I guess the most important feature would be able to start the mp3 from anywhere with in the file so I can go through the file and take snippets.

what about something more simple, I don't actualy need to dj with it, just record audio snippets from mp3s into other Live tracks.

Does anyone know of a VST MP3 player that is Mac/OSX compatible?

Not vst but for editing/exporting snippets of mp3s or just about any format just use Quicktime...amazing what it can do if you dig around.

I've already done an extensive search for this... it doesn't exist.

Think about this: Your CPU would have to decode an MP3 (more CPU usage). Streaming a WAV or AIFF would be far less CPU intensive.

you have alot of options under OSX - just get soundflower for free from Cycling74 and you can run itunes or quicktime or whatever the hell you like and to record into live via the inputs - it's not a beatmatcher etc, but you can at least sample from mp3 that way if you haven't already checked it out has a pretty extensive list of everything OSX - you might be able to find something standalone (there has to be some kind of freeware mp3 dj thing for OSX somewhere) and pipe it in with soundflower.
