2.     Convenient and Strong Playlist & Prevention of Text Cracking

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.

5.     Automatic Isolation of Damaged Sound Sources

Pine Player has an automatic isolation function for damaged sound sources called Vault. If a damaged sound source is detected while playing the music, the music is stopped and taken to the Vault file for isolation.
