You can see a playing head on top of the program window showing the progress of the song being played.

The Final Verdict:
s8Tunes is a nice free audio player that supports many popular audio file formats and allows you to adjust tempo and pitch settings of the audio files. However, the interface of the app is quite basic. It would have been better if it had provided some nice theme options and pretty visualizations. Download free and give it a try.
Fantastic tool for musicians. They have other nice progs also such as a metronome, tuner and they even show you how to make your own Shakuhachi (Japanese flute). Nice work and thank you! Only one thing left wanting. You can’t set it as default for a file type since it doesn’t accept arguments. In other words double-clicking in windows explorer has no effect.
