Music & Innovation. Two words I love!
VMX Player is a FREE non commercial voice controlled music player and music management system. Whether you wish to assign music to in game events, handle internet radio, import music pack albums to replace in game soundtrack or simply wish to control albums via voice control, VMX can handle it and then some! Check out the tutorial page for more info *.
I feel that simply throwing a music system together as an afterthought doesn’t quite cut it, hence a dedicated music system with full focus on audio and music. Development is ongoing and a lot more is planned and can be made possible with your support.
Music Packs: Albums geared towards game genres are available via bandcamp from this website featuring music by me, Angel, as well as Miguel Johnson. These albums can be dragged and dropped into VMX and will serve as context sensitive music for the game. Every music pack is designed to complement the other and can be used together to build up a large suite of music replacement soundtracks.
Mix variants: VMX stands for Variant Mix eXtensions. This is the technology which allows you to add, replace or remove instruments within a mix all in realtime. Want to hear how a track sounds without vocals? Simply say “remove the vocals”, want to hear with a different lead instrument? Say “replace lead instrument” voila! You can even have variants included or excluded in your context driven soundtrack!
Voice Expansions: VMX Player supports both TTS (Text to Speech) options and Voice Expansions, the latter provides spoken word voice overs for VMX. Check out Unity and her beautiful voice!
VMX supports the following audio formats (plus others!): MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP4, AAC, AAC+, Commodore SID formats (SPC, VGM, VGZ, VTX etc), Playstation Audio, Ad-Lib chip tunes, 8 & 16bit music module formats and more!
Playlists via simple drag & drop. Add your own playlists, they’ll be automatically organised for you, you can even assign them to events within game (see below).
Assign playlists to events. Assign playlists to events by saying for example “assign playlist to docking” so the current playlist you’re listening to will initiate whenever you dock. You could say “assign playlist to combat” and whenever you find yourself engaged in battle. Everything else from exploration to alien encounters are supported.
VMX Player also features the new G.L.I.D.E system, which automatically varies transitions and fades whilst using context mode based on what type of event transition is occurring in game. For example, a fast paced event VMX will try its best to detect and decide whether things are fast moving or not and adjust the track transition accordingly.
Hybrid Audio Blocks is a dynamic system which creates music on the fly out of small chunks of audio. It is a very unique procedural style system , you’ll hear different music each time you fire it up and it’s always full of surprises. This system has been a user favourite since it was introduced in VMX 1.0, we frequently update and enhance the system as it evolves.
EQ Presets and control VMX now supports voice control of EQ presets, you can save them so that they’re always set, presets such as bass boost, higher treble, cinematic etc are possible, or take finer control via the player interface.
Drag & Drop. All of your playlists, MusicPacks & Voice Expansions can be added by simply dragging and dropping them in. Voice Expansions and MusicPacks can be set by simply saying ‘set voice Obsidian’ or ‘set Exploration pack’ for example. That’s it!
Built in update notification system: No complications or messing about here. When you start up VMX Player if there is an update available for VMX or a Music Pack, Voice Expansion etc. It will tell you which one has an update available. You simply download the new pack from your account and drag and drop the new one in. Easy.
The smaller but, still, cool things:
Choose whether to show or hide the music player interface, choose whether to add playlists et al to the player manually and then take control later via voice, or do everything via voice. It’s upto you!
Streamer BRB mode- Assign a Be Right Back track to be your music while you are away. Tell VMX “I’m back” to resume normal music service 🙂
Take control! Shuffle mode, loop mode (repeat), play random playlists, play random mix variants, loop music packs or play all music packs (global loop). Play, stop, pause, rewind, fast forward, volume control, attenuator, sound fx on/off. They’re all there!
Check out also the MOTD (Message of The Day) system which sends messages (regarding news/important updates out to all users) in which users can submit humorous MOTD messages (for slow news days;) on the Gamemusicpacks Discord channel.
Free updates, both feature additions and bug fixes will appear for the life of VMX Player 2.x series.

*Disclaimer: (aka The boring legal stuff) VMX is a free, non commercial system, made purely for the love and challenge. If you enjoy it, help keep it alive by supporting the project by either donating in the download option, via Patreon or by purchasing some of my music. As a non commercial system it should not present any problems with use of other VoiceAttack profiles, but I always recommend users check the terms & conditions of any third party product (commercial or otherwise) you may wish to use concurrently with VMX, if in doubt, ask them. Gamemusicpacks.com shall not be held liable for any third party licensing claims which may arise. Gamemusicpacks.com as a developer on the VoiceAttack platform abides by the terms and conditions laid out by VoiceAttack.com. I have no issues with VMX being used concurrently with any other VoiceAttack profile.
