MAD ~ MPEG Audio Decoder

MAD is a high-quality MPEG audio decoder. It currently supports MPEG-1 and the MPEG-2 extension to lower sampling frequencies, as well as the de facto MPEG 2.5 format. All three audio layers — Layer I, Layer II, and Layer III (i.e. MP3) — are fully implemented.

MAD does not yet support MPEG-2 multichannel audio (although it should be backward compatible with such streams) nor does it currently support AAC.

MAD has the following special features:

    • 24-bit PCM output
    • 100% fixed-point (integer) computation
    • completely new implementation based on the ISO/IEC standards
    • available under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL)

Nemp ~ Noch Ein mp3 Player

An intuitive mp3-player with many functions. It is portable and runs without installation – just download, unzip, run. Without permission, Nemp doesn’t fiddle with your mp3 files either, but leaves them as they are.

(“Noch ein mp3-Player” translates to “Yet another mp3-player”.)


v2strip ~ Remove mp3 ID3v2 Tags

v2strip is a simple command-line utility that lets you remove the ID3v2 tag from an MP3 file. The ID3v2 format is nice in many ways, but it can cause problems when being parsed by MP3 players and utilities that don’t support ID3v2 tags.

mp3guessenc ~ Analyze Audio mpeg Files

Supported streams are mpeg 1, mpeg 2 and unofficial mpeg 2.5 – layer I, layer II and layer III of course. Xing tag, lame tag, VBRI tag, Id3 tags (both 1.x and 2.x), APE tags (both v1 and v2), Lyrics3 tags (both v1 and v2) and MusicMatch tag (any version) are detected as well.
