    Hey

    I'd really like to have an audio player that could show the waveform of a track like a DAW does. Not as it plays, like a visualiser, but the entire song mapped out, so that I can move around the song based on what the waveform looks like. Ie. If I've got an audio file thats mostly silence but has one bit of music, I can immediately see where that bit is and go to it, instead of trial and error bouncing around the song hoping to hit it.

    Does anything like this exist?

    Soundcloud for desktop? I'm not sure if it exists but it sounds fucking awesome.

    Don't know of any with a waveform, but I recently found that my media player Clementine [LINK] has a Nyanalyzer Cat option.

    If I'm going that far I may as well open my DAW. All I want is Windows Media Player but instead of the line as a tracking bar, its a waveform like Soundcloud.

    If you are on MacOs, check "Snapper". Basically it displays the waveform under your Finder window, and from there you can read it and do whatever you want without opening it. You can select the part you want and export it immediately by dragging it to another finder or desktop window, all of that without opening the file in a software or anything. It's pretty nice. It's exactly what you are looking for.

    ^I love Snapper, quick, though sometimes annoying app (if you're not used to it quickly) to see a wave form and edit to your delight. Use it all the time for sample mining.

    foobar. i use it to play .wavs. i can't stand bullshit pirated 128kb/s quality audio. they have a ton of themes for it but the one i used(and probably the best theme) also shows the waveform on the left, and a cool spectrum thingy that jumps up and down to the song at the top. it takes a while to set up but it looks great and yea its customizable.

    Gonna sound crazy but I always use my mastering Tool to listen to anything, Tracks 3 Deluxe, it's just awesome, sometimes I can spend countless of time analyzing frequencies and phase while I'm at it, comparing loudness and shit, never used anything else afterwards!

    Plus it doesn't color the sound and if you somewhat are listening to old recording you can always bring up an EQ and spark things up or whatever, so yeah , I'm pretty much sold to it.
