XMPlay is a freeware audio player for Windows. Initially released in 1998, it sets itself apart from its competitors by providing a particularly authentic reproduction of tracker audio files.[1]


Developed by Un4seen Developments in 1998, it originally only supported the playlists and the visualization of sounds generated by real-time animations. Changing the look of the software is also available through skins. Another notable feature that XMPlay has is that it can handle true gapless playback between files.[2][3]


XMPlay's engine for processing audio files is available as a separate program library under the name of BASS or BassMod (only for tracker files) or BASSASIO (Steinberg's ASIO protocol). These libraries can also be used on non-Windows operating systems, they are free for non-commercial use, with commercial use needing to pay a fee for a license (with the exception of BassMod, which doesn't require a license). For the Unix audio player, "X Multimedia System" (XMMS), a MOD playing plug-in based on BassMod is available.[4][5]
