I am currently working on a website project for an online mastering studio. The current site will be completely rebuild from the ground up and the company is looking for a music player where you can A/B the original music with the mastered music. There are a number of ways to do this, but does anyone of you have any experience with music players where you can switch between two audio files being played?
Here is the link to that company I am doing the project for, they have some Flash objects running at the moment already: Online Mastering Studio | Supreme Mastering
Any ideas what player to use and which player you can modify to fit the style of the company's website and CI?
There is one player I am really loving the design of, but I have no clue what player it is. Here is a link to that player in use: Musikmanagement - ArtistScout Musikagentur The player is implemented on the artist pages, have a look at one of the "Künstler" pages and then select "Musik". The player really looks like the player Apple uses on their iTunes preview sites. Any idea what player that is? It definitely uses flash thats for sure and I am lowing the style of it.
Thanks for your help!
Have a look at Pickle Player. It uses a Flash MP3 player with HTML5 <audio> fallback for non-flash supporting devices like iPhone/iPad/iTouch.
With customizable player skins
Thanks for your help!
The two solutions look great and it seems there are options for playing two audio files simultaneously and then just toggle mute between the two to get that A/B comparison effect. I have to look into the two players to see if that will really work as I imagine it, but at this point I am confident to find a solution.
I really like the idea of the players switching between HTML5 and Flash, depending on the capabilities of the browser used.
@Nancy: Pickle Player looks promising and the skins look usable and pretty stylish as well.
@Marian: jPlayer looks stunning, especially the big button version with the round progress bar, very much like the iTunes preview player, I am loving it!
Thanks again, you saved my day!
