Empathy is a virtual touchscreen jukebox. It allows you to extract your audio CDs to MP3 format, managing them as complete albums (along with accompanying CD artwork). Access your music using a simple yet powerful interface that is as close to a Jukebox as we think you can get (CD and play list styles also supported).
Empathy features several different interfaces to allow the easiest access to your stored music files. The main interface is a Touchscreen style jukebox system but media player style mode is also available.
CD player style - Allows the user to select albums as though loading a CD into a player and similar in interface to most popular CD player applications. It differs by allowing you to switch between all your albums in an instant.
Play-list style - Allows the user to compile play lists of individual tracks from across their entire music collection. Select an album and track and click to add to the list.
Random play-list style - Allows the user to compile a random play-list from either the entire collection or from a selected list of albums.
Jukebox style - This mode simulates a classic jukebox, allowing the user to browse through album covers and pick tracks.
Imports music from your CDs to your collection, allowing you to add album cover images, download the track listings from the internet and modify them if necessary.
