Sayonara is a small, clear and fast audio player for Linux written in C++, supported by the Qt framework. It uses GStreamer as audio backend. Sayonara is open source and uses the GPLv3 license. One of Sayonara’s goals is intuitive and easy usability. Currently, it is only available for Linux and BSD. Although Sayonara can be considered as a lightweight player, it has a lot of features in order to organize even big music collections. In contrast to the heavyweight players, the main focus of Sayonara is performance, low CPU usage and low memory consumption. Sayonara is a great alternative to players like Rhythmbox, Clementine or Amarok. Those who miss Winamp for Linux should give Sayonara a try.
Managing your library: You can manage your library by artists, albums, genres or file paths. Sayonara contains a sophisticated tag editor helping you to keep your collection clean. You can hold multiple playlists simultaneously, save/rename/delete or export them to common playlist file formats. With the multi library feature you can manage multiple directories as stand-alone libraries and copy and move tracks from one to another. There are even more complex library plugins like Soundcloud or SomaFM support.
Directory view: Some people don’t have a perfect tagged library and are more interested in the directory structure of their libraries. Sayonara provides various features to access and edit your music in the directory view.
Plugins: In addition, there are some useful plugins helping to enhance your comfort while listening. Some interesting plugins are the equalizer, a speed/pitch control, a crossfader, bookmarks for tracks and a broadcasting function.
Webstreams and Podcasts: You can record all tracks streamed from the internet. Your saved tracks automatically tagged, of course. When listening to ordinary webstreams, a history of all played tracks can be displayed. If webstreams or podcasts contain some chapter information, Sayonara also uses this information in order to provide fast jumping within these tracks.
Bluemindo is a really simple yet powerful audio player in Python/PyGTK, using Gstreamer. It’s a free (as in freedom) software, released under GPLv3, only.
Bluemindo’s user interface consists of a main view of all your digitized album discs, which is searchable and filterable. The playback mode is gapless and support ReplayGain (it can also automatically choose to switch between Album and Track modes, depending on the kind of music that’s being played). Last but not least, it brings playlist (automatic and user-made), MPRIS/MediaPlayer2 support and lyrics/artwork downloading.

Decibel Audio Player is a GTK+ open-source (GPL) audio player for GNU/Linux. It is very straightforward to use thanks to a clean and user-friendly interface. It is especially targeted at Gnome and follows the Gnome HIG.
Decibel Audio Player is built around a highly modular structure that lets the user disable completely the features he does not need. A disabled feature uses absolutely no memory and no processor time.
Decibel Audio Player is a real audio player and does not include features that are not meant to be part of an audio player. These features, such as tagging files or burning CDs, generally have a better support in dedicated software. If you are looking for an audio player that can make coffee, then you should stay away from Decibel and give a try to other players (e.g., Amarok, Exaile).
JAMin is the JACK Audio Connection Kit (JACK) Audio Mastering interface. JAMin is an open source application designed to perform professional audio mastering of stereo input streams. It uses LADSPA for digital signal processing (DSP). JAMin is licensed under the GPL.
