Pimp is a highly interactive and programmable music player. It can be controlled with an mpd client or via a Python interpreter. Files can be played directly, and file paths are recorded in a database. Files are identified by a "fingerprint" which allows the user to identify an audio file despite file moving and tag modification. Pimp aims to be a player framework with a really small core. All features are implemented in extensions. For example, a lot of player events such as play, seek, and pause are logged in the database.

Bangarang is a semantically empowered media player. Fully integrated with KDE’s Nepomuk semantic storage, Bangarang has access to indexed media information and automatically shares its own media information, rating, tags, and usage statistics with other Nepomuk powered applications.

Plasma desktop widgets with MPRIS support can directly control Bangarang. Bangarang keeps you in control of your media experience. It provides quick access to lists of recently played, highest rated, and frequently played items. The Info View provides helpful information when you need it. Media information can be edited easily. It can fetch artist, song, movie, and TV show information from open data providers like Last.fm, themoviedb.org, and theTVDB.com. Bangarang lets you use either tags or files and folders to organize your media in any way you wish.
Khronosphere is an audio recording tool. Its special feature is a buffer that keeps capturing audio even before the actual recording is started. This enables the user to prospectively catch any interesting sound that normally would have been lost. The buffer size is freely definable by the user. The software itself places no restrictions; the only limits are the resources of the host system. Khronosphere is very similar to and inspired by Jack Time Machine. They both have the same basic concept, but Khronosphere supports larger buffer sizes.
