Can anyone suggest some good audio player software that can play multiple audio files simultaneously? I need them to play simultaneously and not one after the other. I know audacity can do this but I found that a little complicated. I just need a simple player which can play multiple audio tracks simultaneously. Thanks!

What you are asking for is complicated by its very nature.  Audacity is about "as simple" as you're going to get if you want multi-track audio.

Hi Nyzme and welcome,

 

britechguy is correct it would not easy and I don't know of a player that is capable.

 

So I assume because you mentioned Audacity, you have it (you are right it can be complex)

 

I'll walk you through it (it took  lot of playing over years to work this out,but so simple)

 

Open Audacity -> click File -> Import audio-> (new window) find and select your first track -> click open.

 

that should then display that track   repeat from click File  for your second track  that should now display under track one 

 

Now the tip press CTRL+A keys on your keyboard (both tracks now highlighted)

 

Hit the play button (you can add as many tracks as you like, the key is the ctrl+a bit so they play as one)

 

Hope that helps

 

Hedge

@Nzyme,

 

You welcome  :thumbup2:

 

Yes stick with it, it is an amazing tool when you master it (I don't think anybody truly masters it)

 

Good luck 

 

Hedge
