Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.
Ed, Canada.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

Disco MP3 & CD Player
Screenshot reduced in size to display easily here

Recommended Minimum System: PC, Windows 95/NT4 or better e.g. XP, Vista, Windows 7, (Mac users click here), with 16MB Ram, Pentium 166, Sound Card.

My son was getting a bit bored with the CD player in Windows, so I made a disco version with flashing lights and pounding speakers. Please be aware that flashing lights can be harmful to some people (A warning is shown each time the program is run). You have the normal functions of a CD player and the ability to change the speed and pattern of the lights. This program has now been updated to play lists of MP3 files automatically one after the other and you now don't need any other software installed to play them, as in the previous version. Plus you can now look for MP3 files on your hard disks or CD's etc.

Having a party, just turn off your screen saver and run this program with all your favourite MP3's playing (or CD) just one after the other and when the end is reached, it starts all over again. Compressed file size - 1.02 MB.

A simple MP3 & CD Player complete with flashing Disco lights. Warning: Flashing lights can be harmful to some people, especially anyone suffering from epilepsy. Please select lights off (see below) if you are at all worried. Alternatively, pressing the Space Bar at anytime during the program will extinguish the lights.

Play MP3's/Play CD's: By default the program starts by being a CD Player. Click this button to choose to play MP3 files. The button will then change into a Play CD's one, to allow you to change back to playing tracks from a CD. When Play MP3's is chosen a list of all the MP3 files in the Disco directory will be displayed in the drop down menu box with the first track being shown and played. Unless you choose one of the buttons below, when the first track has finished playing the next one will be played and so on until the end, when play will start from the first track again. The box only shows MP3 files not CD tracks. You can either copy any MP3 files you have into the Disco file on your hard drive (unless you changed where "Disco Player" was installed the Disco file should be in C:/Olltwit, assuming your hard drive letter is C), Or you can choose any other folder on your hard drive that contains MP3 files by using the Find MP3 Files button, explained below.

I have included two ten second snippets of a couple of free MP3 "Dance" tracks, MR. B's, Mechanical Man and Floppy M's, Get The Money to give you examples of how the player works. Please remember it's illegal to have full MP3 tracks for more than 24 hours on your system unless they were free originally, you have paid for them or you have the written permission of the Band/Artist. Used sensibly, MP3 files should revolutionise the way we buy music and the artists should benefit directly rather than all the middle men do currently. So make sure you buy your MP3's or CD's rather than just download pirate copies. OK sermon over :-)

Track Selector: Use the arrow buttons either side of the Track Selector, to choose the track you want to play. Click the Play button to play it. If you are playing MP3's you can also select tracks to play by dropping down the list and clicking on your selection.

Track Playing: This shows the current track playing.

Play: Click this button to Play the track chosen in the Track Selector. If this is 0 then play will start and continue from Track 1.

Pause/Resume: Click this button to Pause the current track. Once clicked the Resume button will appear. Click this to Resume Play.

Next: Click this button to Play the Next track.

Back: Click this button to Play the Previous track.

Start: Click this button to Play from the first track.

Stop: Click this button to Stop Play.

Lights Settings: Click this button to adjust the rate at which the lights flash. A slider will appear for each coloured light. Slide the bar up to increase the flash rate and down to decrease it. Clicking Psychedelic Mode sets the lights to randomly swap with each other. Rainbow Mode sets the lights to flash in sequence. Clicking Lights Off/On turns the lights off or on. Hitting the Space Bar turns all the lights off and they can only be restored by re-starting the program.
Please note: in this latest version 1.2, the lights, the LED's on the graphic equaliser and the pounding of the speakers, are all sensitive to the music when playing MP3's (when in CD mode they just flash randomly). The slider bars then act as levels of sensitivity in MP3 mode. In other words, depending on where you position the slider for each coloured light, determines how the lights flash. Experiment by setting them at different levels and you should get the idea.

Help: Click this button to display this page.

Find MP3 Files Click this button to open an explorer window to find MP3 files on your hard drive/s, CD's etc. When you have located a folder with MP3's in, then either single click on one of them and choose Open or double click a file. All the MP3 files in this folder will then be displayed in the drop down box, sorted into alphabetical order and the first track will start playing. This folder will then become the default folder at next start up of the program or until you change it by choosing a new folder with the Find MP3 Files button.

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!
Suzanne, USA

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
Mary Beth, Indiana, USA
