Freemake Music BoxEllora Assets Corporation has released Freemake Music Box 1.0, the first stable release of its universal audio and streaming music player. Described as a “jukebox [that] plays back, finds and streams your favourite songs in real time” and boasting a library of over 42 million audio tracks, the first stable release adds a number of new features as well as the promise of improved searches.

The first new feature is support for searching the user’s hard drive for existing audio files to add to the program’s library. Also added is the ability to make the program the system’s default audio player – this is the default setting, unless the user unticks it during installation (choose Custom to do so).

Version 1.0.0’s final new feature is the addition of support for importing both playlists and audio tracks via the left-hand pane – most common audio and playlist formats are supported.

Support for offline files and playlists is the major highlight of Freemake Music Box 1.0.

The application also comes with a better quality search algorithm – helped by added support for ID3 tags – and improved search suggestions, which appear when the user has started typing search terms into the right-hand box.

Freemake Music Box has been in beta since December 2011, the last update (0.9.8) of which was released in March. Ellora has also revealed future features currently being developed, including the ability to sync playlists across the network with other PCs running Freemake Music Box.

An Android app is planned, with the playlist sync subsequently being extended to support syncing to mobiles. Finally, a Top Music Charts feature is also promised for those looking for popular music.

Freemake Music Box 1.0.0 is available now as a freeware download for PCs with Windows XP or later.
