A simple audio player:

  • Pin point loop section, nudge edit starting and end time
  • Move loop position as a whole
  • Loop a number of times then pause
  • For guitarist and old school transcribers
  • Actions to toggle play/pause, goto A, and drift AB. Can be set up with keyboard shortcuts.
  • Support .WAVE files only (Embedded plugin), file format conversion tutorial see below.
  • Does not sync with musescore's playback.

You can open LoopPlayer.html in any web browser, but it won't react to hotkeys in musescore. When opened in a modern web browser, supports all common format eg .OGG .MP3 .MP4 files.
