Engine Player

Welcome to the new sample player from Engine Audio

After decades of licensing sample players and accumulating vast experience with sampled instruments, we’ve leveraged this expertise to create our own software environment – Engine Player. This innovative platform not only introduces a new sample player compatible with all major platforms but also provides a comprehensive suite of tools for instrument creation, copy protection, and license management.

Our primary focus is on simplicity, affordability, and above all, flexibility.
