Neil Rosen's MITPlayer

We exclusively use the MITPlayer for our music programming needs. Screenshots below. The MITPlayer is the only music app written specifically for folk dance sessions. It's a well-designed program, with many special features for running dance sessions. The Dance Hall display (1st image below), usually placed on a separate monitor, has a clean frame that shows previous, current, and upcoming dances in large fonts for the dancers. The red "thermometer" shows where you are in the current dance.

Features:
Program Queue panel; Holder Area (scratch pad for programming); Search for dances by any attribute (country, type, difficulty, style, choreographer); Dynamic inter-dance pauses; Teaser function (for couples and sets); Delayed play so programmer can leave computer to lead dance; Easy creation of playlists; Function key controls for remote control; Memory of dance volume settings; "Dance already played today" warning; Automatic memory of dates dance was taught and played; Frequency counts over any time period; and more.

News! Continuing the Player updates, with many useful features and bug fixes.
